The newly-renamed and redesigned GAIA Riverlodge eco-resort in Belize will open Saturday, the project announced.
Formerly known as the Five Sisters Lodge, the property is opening after a renovation that began in August.
“We are thrilled to welcome our first guests,” said Daniel Lighter, owner of GAIA Riverlodge and its sister property, the Matachica Resort and Spa in Belize’s Ambergris Caye.
The eco-resort property has seen upgrades to its 16 cabanas, which now have hardwood floors, bathrooms with hand-painted Mexican tiles and panoramic windows or private verandas.
“This is such an exciting time for us, and we look forward to further developing our services and relations within the Belizean community,” Lighter said.
