Blancaneaux Lodge

Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve
San Ignacio , Belize

The Setting: Spot rare howler monkeys and iguanas from the safety of this idyllic, horseshoe-shaped tub designed by Oscar-winning production designer Dean Tavoularis at Francis Ford Coppola’s Blancaneaux Lodge in Belize. Made from thousands of pieces of local granite and built by local stone craftsmen, it sits in a hillside amid the same kind of lush jungle paradise Coppola fell in love with while filming Apocalypse Now.

Bonus: The resort’s ultra-green hydroelectric plant heats the 11,000-gallon hot tub with the excess electricity it generates.
