Not only do we enjoy creating organic spa treatments that reflect and tell a story about the culture & region, but we also enjoy looking at other hotels with similar treatments to their native culture! Here are three of our favorites:
Ka’ana Boutique Resort
A soothing treatment for tired skin. Indulge in a rich and warm rejuvenating body wrap, which cares for the silhouette as it reduces contours, caresses the skin. This wrap is removed with warm gloves and a shower followed by a purifying honey, mint and lime body polish with light and long traditional stroking movements.
Ritual de Moka
Ideal to revitalize your skin. They initiate the ritual by exfoliating with fresh ground organic coffee, whose aroma will transport you to the high ground of Chiapas. Wrapping you with an exquisite cocoa paste, we invite you to discover the power of this sacred seed for the Meso-American cultures.
Hotel Punta Islita
Chorotega Arts: Back, Neck & Scalp Massage
A soothing healing ritual practiced by one of Guanacaste’s native tribes to release the tension held from the base of the spine to the cranium. A warm rosemary and spiced oil infusion harmonizes body and mind for a uniquely peaceful experience.

We warmly welcome you to Ka’ana, which means “heavenly place” in the Mayan language.
We are delighted that you have decided to visit the beautiful Cayo District of Belize where there is an abundance of high quality tours and experiences, all of which are worth visiting.

To compliment the food, we invite you to try some fine wines and cocktails from our wine cellar and Martini Lounge Bar.
Ka’ana was designed as a tribute to Belize and its people – all of the wooden furniture is made of Belizean hardwood by local craftsmen. Also, all of the artwork and slate carvings were commissioned from local artists specifically for display and sale at Ka’ana.
On behalf of the entire team “Kulun Bilesh” which is Mayan for “welcome”. Enjoy your visit.
