It's almost September and we wanted to let you know in advance just what an exciting month it will be in Belize and at Ka'ana Resort. The country is alive with celebrations, parades, street parties and crowds celebrating Independence Day on September 21. And this year, we're also commemorating our 10th Anniversary on the same day!
On September 21, 1981, Belize gained independence from Great Britain, which had ruled the territory since 1638. And on September 21, 2007, Ka'ana opened in the jungles of West Belize. We're proud to share the same anniversary of our country, and are excited to celebrate.
We've already been commemorating our 10 Year Anniversary Celebration for several months, but the real party comes on September 21, when we invite you to a grand fête. Enjoy celebratory cocktails with our general manager Wolfgang Brandl at The Wallace Bar, where our talented mixologists craft specialty drinks using our homegrown produce. And on the yoga deck, we're hosting a Maya barbecue with live music—a feast honoring both 36 years of independence and 10 years of award-winning service here at Ka'ana. An outdoor screen will be showing movies under the stars as well. And at the end of the night, fireworks will light up the jungle sky.
We can't believe that it's been a decade since opening our doors here in Western Belize. During that time, we've seen couples getting engaged and married, families return year after year, and countless memories being made from travelers to our corner of the world. And we've loved being a part of it all.
Now, we're excited to welcome you back to Belize to celebrate Ka'ana with us. Visit ancient Maya temples, ride horseback through the jungles, take up Belizean cooking, or just lounge poolside. And if you stay with us for three nights or more before September 21, we'll upgrade your room and give you a bottle of champagne so that you too can join in on the festivities!
Make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram so you don't miss any updates, and book today to join the party!
