“Friends and family stayed here for my mother’s birthday. The place was simply THE best. The staff was amazing. Above and beyond anything we could have imagined. They created a special dinner for our group for her birthday evening (without us asking) and I do mean created. They made dishes they had never made before for us and it was outstanding. Not only that but we asked them if they could make her a birthday dessert, she is not a cake fan so I left it up to them, telling them only that she didn’t like cake but loved fruit. They made the most wonderful fruit tart, it was really a work of art. We almost hated to eat it…almost.
They do have spa, but we didn’t have time to make use of it but given everything else, I’m sure its awesome. The grounds are lovely and serene. The pool is nestled in the middle of the property surrounded by flora and fauna… Okay, I wanna go back…”

We can’t believe it’s November! Fast forward through the turkey drawstring pants, cranberry hiccups and office parties… Where do you want to go to deal with your post season’s holidays? Don’t worry, we’re here to give you some ideas.
You walk into your private Pool Villa.
You lounge around your fancy digs.
You, of course, have a cocktail.
You have breakfast at La Ceiba to get you ready for today’s adventure. Shown here, our layered tortillas!
You swim into a cave opening, it’s dark and you’re drenched. You explore ATM Cave and and follow the trail of the old Maya civilization, may even spot some human remains. It was scary, but now you feel accomplished! (Read More)
You’re back at Ka’ana and stop by Frieze Lounge for some victory cocktails!
You’re back in your villa taking in some sun and dipping in the pool.
Back to La Ceiba for dinner! Shown here is our popular Res Snapper on Cedar Plank.
You stop by the Organic garden to see where the ingredients came from.
You have that fourth – err second drink.
You’re in bed feeling great. You can’t wait for what the next day will bring and are wondering if these are 1000 count sheets. (Yes, they are.)
As we continue our Countdown of the Maya End of the World (53 days to go!), what better way to start off this week’s bang than with this scrumptious Maya-inspired dish:
Corn Salbutes topped with Chicken (Shredded), Escabeche Onions (Pickled), lettuce-lime Chiffonade, tomato Concasse and queso Blanco (Crumbled).
Did you know you can spend an evening secluded in the privacy of your villa while a chef prepares you a private gourmet dinner?
For a truly special experience, allow us to create a private, customized dining experience in one of our property’s unique locations. Be the sole recipients of a 5-course Tasting menu designed for your palette, in our Wine cellar, adjacent to our Infinity-edge pool or on our Stargazing Terrace. Click Here to learn more!

Here at Ka’ana, we grow all kinds of fruits and vegetables including broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, lettuce, arugula, bell peppers, tomatoes and potatoes, as well as hot chiles and spicy herbs. Our fruits are of the tropical variety including bananas, papayas, watermelon, pineapple and local exotic fruits such as mammy apples and dragon fruit.
Most of our fruits and vegetables grow all year round. Carrots grow between August and January while broccoli and cauliflower grow between May and August.
We create our own jams and infusions using the fruits and also pickle the vegetables in-house. Produce from our organic garden is incorporated in all of our recipes at La Ceiba to ensure that our guests are always eating healthily and organically.
Here’s the lowdown on what we are having today. It’s a crowd favorite here and a traditional Belize breakfast dish you can find in our restaurant La Ceiba. This tasty platter is built up with layers of handmade tortillas, fried organic eggs, American cheese and re-fried beans. It’s drizzled with a fresh homemade sauce made from tomatoes, basil, onions and garnished with chopped cilantro - all grown here in Ka’ana’s organic garden. So Tasty!
We are all a bit of cocktail nerds here at Ka’ana and even love to infuse our own alcohol (you saw our post about what we like to make in house here http://tinyurl.com/99lk2q2)
You can take a cocktail class with one of our master mixologist, learn about local alcohols or how to improve your own cocktail repertoire. Or hang in our newly renovated Freize lounge and try our variety of bespoke Belize inspired cocktails.
