As part of an industry in a country dedicated to minimizing the impact on the local culture and environment, Ka’ana has been founded on an enduring connection to the land as well as surrounding communities. We recognize the importance of providing our guests with honest luxury, without compromising the sustainability of the region. However, sustainability isn’t only about understanding the environmental impact we make, but about enhancing our guests’ experiences and the relationships we’ve established with local groups.
One such community outreach involves the recently adopted Succotz Primary School located in the village of San Jose Succotz – a mere ten-minute drive from Ka’ana. Of the three hundred and sixty (360) students currently attending, only a few are able to afford the US$18 yearly tuition. Rather than turning the children away, the school’s lack of resources has resulted in a fledgling sports program, inadequate cafeteria and restroom facilities including leaking roofs.
We are proud to support the Succtoz Primary School with a Bathroom Rehabilitation Project, Feeding Program, Scholarship Fund and Sports Program. We also welcome and facilitate donations or volunteer works at the school so don’t hesitate to contact us to deepen your Belize experience by becoming involved in our social initiatives!

In keeping with its mission of promoting tourism development in Belize, Ka’ana Boutique Resort was pleased to make a contribution in the education sector by awarding a full scholarship to Galen University.
Following a rigorous three-part application process, three finalists were selected to enter the final round. This final testing phase consisted of a series of challenges over a 24-hour period at Ka’ana Boutique Resort. The challenges ranged from management skills, food and beverage preparation, to academic knowledge. These were designed to test the finalists’ ability to maintain a high standard of service under demanding conditions, to make good judgment calls under pressure, and to be creative and spontaneous, which are just some of the skills it takes to succeed in the hospitality business.
The finalists were evaluated on a point system with a total possible score of 400 points. With only two and a half points separating the top two competitors, Flora Pereira was awarded the Bachelor’s Degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management scholarship. All three ladies did an exceptional job throughout the course of this challenging experience and we can expect that they will be making big strides in Belize’s tourism industry.
The full scholarship, a value of BZ$16,760.00, will cover tuition, fees, and books over a two year period. Flora Pereira will be required to maintain a high level of academic standard while enrolled in the Bachelor’s programme as well as complete an internship at Ka’ana Boutique Resort during the two years. This scholarship will enable Flora to be the first of her family to pursue a graduate degree.
“It is a fundamental principle of Ka’ana’s mission statement to assist in and dedicate time and resources to outreach programs and to foster mutual respect for all those “touched” by the Ka’ana brand while working for the greater good of tourism development in Belize”.
