We’ve been working with New York-based designer, Cara Araneta, to upgrade the interiors of our Balam Suites, King and Queen Casita Suites. Her vision was to combine Belize’s colonial heritage and indigenous crafts with expedition influences, scattering antiques like vintage binoculars, cameras, telescopes, and old, military medals. Also, placing English colonial portraits adjacent to local artists’ artworks and using warm, local textiles and patterned accents. Each suite is personally styled. “I wanted every room to tell a story – and feel personal.” Here are some work-in-progress snapshots.

When we were in Guatemala, we had the pleasure of meeting talented artist, Guillermo Maldonado. He carves his designs into wood and makes limited edition prints that combine bold and graphic colors with an indigenous feeling, but still manage to be contemporary; so fitting for us at Ka’ana: combining modern with an ode to local history. You’ll be able to see his work throughout the resort and his exclusive pieces in the Villas.
