As 2021, comes to a close, we at Ka’ana Resort are reflecting on the incredible year we’ve had! Honoring nature, culture, and luxury, Ka’ana Resort saw a year of enriching experiences and extraordinary change. From reintroducing our bespoke luxury accommodations to our community and environmental involvement, our team is proud of our mission to offer elevated experiences, guest satisfaction, and deliver a profound impact within the community we serve. Here’s a look back at all we’ve accomplished in 2021.
This year, Ka’ana reintroduced newly renovated suites and villas that underwent significant luxury updates that boast modern opulence and authentic class.
The Casita Suite now comprises four hundred square feet of private spaces, includes an in-room seating area all with air conditioning, and a large bathroom with a rainfall shower. Designed with local art and textiles, the Casita Suite also saw the addition of a private garden and an outdoor soaking tub for a seamless fusion of comfort and romance.
For our Master Suite, we took privacy up a notch. This gorgeously appointed suite now includes a private garden along with a personal plunge pool, a beautiful wooden patio, and an outdoor rainfall shower all in the comfort of your own outdoor private spaces. For indoors, we’ve upgraded all AC units and fixtures, added an indoor rainfall shower, and of course renovated the spacious living quarters.
Featuring modern amenities and authentic class, our One Bedroom Villa and Two Bedroom Villa are both a seamless integration of indoor and outdoor elegance. With a panoramic view of the pool and private garden from the comforts of our California King bed, guests will wake to the grandeur of nature each morning through magnificent, glass doors. Now featuring an extended private pool, re-finished interiors, and a private garden, this villa is a luxurious world of its own.
Our commitment to community engagement also saw a year of extraordinary impact. This year, like the years before Ka’ana Resort partnered with Pack for a Purpose, whose aim is to contribute to communities by allowing travelers the opportunity to make meaningful contributions to the destinations they visit. Through our partnership, we’ve assisted a neighboring school, Holy Cross School in Calla Creek, where we’ve developed a sports program, created an organic garden to teach sustainability and nutrition, and built a bathroom for the older students. Our Back-to-School Supply Drive also yielded significant contributions of essential supplies for the academic year. Additionally, through our work with Cayo Animal Welfare Society (CAWS), the local animal shelter, Ka’ana Resort was able to foster numerous pets from CAWS throughout the year until they found a home.
Having been listed as one of the fourteen Impact Travel Opportunities to Regenerate Communities by Kind Traveler, Ka’ana Resort recognizes its position as a leader of change within the community and remains committed to making a difference.
Known as much for its dining as it is for luxury accomodations, this year Ka’ana had the pleasure of introducing a new menu. Created with artistry and driven by taste, our culinary experts created masterful dishes worth discovering. Showcasing delicious ingredients from farm-fresh local selections, our new menu features comforting classics, vegetarian delicacies, and local favorites- all served with signature hospitality.
For the 7th consecutive year, Ka’ana has once again been awarded Leading Boutique Resort in Central America for 2021 by the prestigious World Travel Awards. We were also honored to have been voted a 2021 Travelers’ Choice Award winner, which recognizes great reviews from travelers around the globe and celebrates Ka'ana's excellence among the top 10% of hotels worldwide. These accolades represent our unwavering commitment to excellence, unmatched service, and dedication to providing guests extraordinary jungle experiences.
From all of us at Ka’ana Resort, we extend a heartfelt thank you to those who have visited us, collaborated with us, and engaged with us over the year. We are eager for all that’s to come in 2022!
