Retreat: Blancaneaux Lodge
Belize > S. Ignacio


The lodge is self sustaining in energy through the use of a hydroelectric plant. Excess energy generated is used to heat the pool at the Spa. We eliminated the use of air conditioning installing window louvers, screened doors, ceiling fans and high thatched ceiling. The use of natural light is maximized through the design and all light bulbs are energy efficient; hand-cranked flashlights are provided to guests to eliminate batteries.
