Introducing Cassa Zenda

As an extension to your journey in Belize and Guatemala, consider this exclusive use, waterfront villa, perched on the banks of Lake Izabal, in Guatemala’s stunning Rio Dulce region. With four elegantly- appointed suite bungalows accommodating a maximum of 16 guests, Cassa Zenda is ideally situated where the fresh waters of the Rio Dulce meet the vast expanse of Lake Izabal, Guatemala’s largest lake.

Guests experience unparalleled service at their fingertips with a concierge and house manager, house butler, private chef, housekeeping service and boat captain.  The villa’s staff will tailor adventure experiences -- adding to the sense of exclusivity.  Guests can customize itineraries that include exploration of Cassa Zenda’s jungle ecology and immersion in the local Izabal culture; water sports adventure with water skiing, kayaking and hydrofoiling; hiking to nearby thermal pools; restorative yoga under a palapa; or lying by the saltwater Jacuzzi pool while sampling Guatemalan cuisine al fresco. 

Cassa Zenda is ideally situated for a two- three or four-resort getaway together with Turtle Inn,  Blancaneaux Lodge and Coral Caye in Belize and/or La Lancha, Guatemala.  Guests will embrace the highlights of these two countries’ greatest features – the Barrier Reef in Belize, Rio Dulce in Guatemala and Tikal in Guatemala. 

For a stunning sense of arrival, guests ideally travel by boat from Turtle Inn to Cassa Zenda, first taking in the coastal views of the Belizean great barrier reef dotted with famous local cayes and islands, passing to the coastal town of Livingston where a seamless passport check in is handled by the captain of your vessel.  Next is the breathtaking views on the winding Rio Dulce river approach, flanked by verdant green cliffs teaming with bird life (egrets, pelicans, cormorants) – perhaps the tallest living wall journey to any vacation experience one might find outside of Vietnam.  For a two-resort stay combined with La Lancha, guests may opt for a road,  helicopter or private charter flight transfer. 

 Cassa Zenda is now accepting reservations.  Rates start at $3,500/night for 1-8 persons (three-night minimum) inclusive of all meals, Nautique ski boat, Jet Skis, paddle boards, sift boards, wake boards, water ski and kayak.  Please visit or call toll free (855) 968-0117.
