Naia Resort and Spa is the perfect destination for those seeking both relaxation and an exquisite taste of Belize. With its diverse dining options, emphasis on locally sourced ingredients, and unique dining experiences, Naia stands out as a true paradise for those who want to explore Belize with all their senses.
One of the highlights of your stay at Naia is our exceptional onsite dining options. Each restaurant showcases a distinct culinary theme and atmosphere, ensuring that every meal is a new and exciting experience.
If there’s one thing that captures the essence of a tropical getaway, it’s the image of sipping on a refreshing cocktail while gazing at the boundless Caribbean Sea. Our Beach Bar and Grill brings this idyllic scene to life, offering an unmissable culinary experience that combines stunning ocean views with delectable dishes.
Beyond the Beach Bar and Grill, our dining scene also boasts a distinctive gem: the 1981 Restaurant. The name “1981” pays homage to a pivotal year in Belize’s history – the year we gained independence. The restaurant channels this historical significance by celebrating Belize’s diverse cultural influences through its culinary offerings. The menu at 1981 is a tapestry woven with Mayan, Creole, Garifuna, and Mestizo influences, creating a symphony of flavors that reflects Belize’s melting pot.
No culinary journey at Naia Resort is complete without indulging in one of our signature dishes. These creations are a harmonious blend of innovative techniques and locally inspired ingredients, resulting in truly unique flavors.
Our Seafood Sere is a testament to Belizean coastal cuisine, harmonizing a variety of fresh seafood and veggies simmered in a rich coconut broth. As an homage to Belize’s indigenous Maya, the Mayan Spiced Fish Fillet incorporates modern culinary spices with traditional Mayan techniques. A fish fillet, delicately spiced with local herbs, is enveloped in a banana leaf and baked to perfection. This dish is served alongside classic Belizean sides – rice and beans – and accompanied by a refreshing pineapple slaw. It’s a modern twist on ancient traditions, delivering a symphony of tastes that celebrate the region’s culinary heritage.
Naia’s dining experiences are set apart by its commitment to using locally sourced ingredients. Belize’s rich culinary heritage is deeply rooted in its natural bounty, and we want to showcase the Belizean flavors through our dishes. By collaborating with local farmers, fishermen, and artisans, we ensure that each meal tells a story of the region’s vibrant culture and traditions. This dedication to local ingredients not only supports the community but also guarantees that the dishes burst with authentic, fresh Belizean flavors.
