I was indeed warmly welcomed to Ka’ana Boutique Resort this month. Greeted by Mario at the water taxi terminal in Belize city, my partner and I were transferred to the resort aboard a fully air conditioned van with an icy cold coke, and a bottle of water ready for us. The drive itself is great. Traveling along the Western Highway from the city to the district of Cayo offers the eyes the opportunity to glance upon the vastness of the open lush landscape, as you are swept through the hills and approach San Ignacio you feel truly taken away.
Pulling into the resort just outside San Ignacio, the tree lined road brought us to the doorsteps of this small luxury resort, which subsequently was also awarded the designation of becoming a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of The World, a huge accomplishment considering they have only been in operation for 3 years. We were greeted immediately by 3 amazing staff members, smiling warmly, and awaiting our arrival. Seated in the lobby we were brought a fresh blended drink of ginger and lime that was very much appreciated after the long journey from San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. We were escorted to our casita tucked away amongst the fruit trees, and hibiscus, and were introduced to the member of the staff that would clean our room, and provide the evening turndown service. I was already blown away, and we had been there for about 15 minutes. The room we were staying at was simply immaculate, ultra stylish and with every element of luxury you could imagine.
The Resort is nestled on 16 acres of lush tropical fruit trees, and they also have their own 2 acre vegetable garden which provides the goods for La Ceiba Restaurant. The Infinity pool is perched above the grounds, and offers plush loungers, fluffy towels and a sexy outdoor shower. The spa is located just off the pool, and offers everything from Swedish massage, facials, body scrubs, and wraps, and after a day at the pool the Sunburn soother. They also provide packages that offer an array of their services set over a 2 hour time period, booking is highly recommended for these services.
At Ka’ana they will provide you with an abundance of exhilarating experiences, Mayan temples, ancient caves, sparkling rivers, a majestic rainforest, and horse back riding, with their desire to expose you to what this country truly has to offer. I have only mentioned in this post what the resort has to offer in term of amenities, but don’t worry the next post will be dedicated to the food at Ka’ana, which without reservation is indeed the best of what Belize has to offer, stay tuned!
