In the midst of the Western Belize jungle, you’d be forgiven for not expecting this jaw-dropping haven of elegance and modernity. Step into Ka’ana, a tropical paradise surrounded by lush jungle and wildlife (chilled out iguanas regularly make an appearance by the pool). An understated boutique resort at the top of its game, a restaurant, bar, wine cellar and spa are on hand to ease guests into a good night’s sleep after a long day exploring the nearby Mayan ruins, cave tubing, zip-lining, or jaguar tracking.
A chic neutral is hard to pull off, but at Ka’ana they get it spot on – letting the scenery do the talking instead. 17 suites and villas come complete with your essential mod-cons, from air con to flat screen TVs and WiFi, but the Private Pool Villas are the ultimate in indulgence. The 1 or 2 bed Villas come complete with your own outdoor living room with plunge pool, personal butler, and designated housekeeper.
Close to San Ignacio in western Belize, the hotel’s location in the rainforest makes it the perfect base for action-packed days. The popular ancient Mayan city of Xunatunich is a short hand-cranked ferry crossing away, as is the border into neighbouring Guatemala.
Why We Like It
Close to San Ignacio in western Belize, the hotel’s location in the rainforest makes it the perfect base for action-packed days. From exploring the incredibly well-preserved Xunantunich Mayan ruins by horseback to discovering the hidden beauty of Barton Creek Cave by kayak. Not to mention, the popular ancient Mayan city of Xunatunich is a short hand-cranked ferry crossing away, a stunning example of ancient history in the most exotic of settings that you just can’t miss whilst you’re staying so close by.
