Deep within the western forests of Belize, Ka'ana is a boutique hotel which offers a polished alternative to the other jungle lodges of the Montain Pine Ridge forest reserve. It is ideally suited to couples who prefer not to sacrifice any creature comforts, and wish to enjoy a little privacy and indulgence. The staff at Ka'ana are attentive, and every guest will have a briefing on arrival to discuss potential activities and ways to spend their stay, ensuring that every trip can be totally personalized.
The hotel itself has just 17 suites and villas and this adds to the overall exclusive and intimate atmosphere. Each of the villas and suites is finished with modern clean lines, neutral decor and colorful Belizean textiles to highlight. For those who want complete privacy, there are a selection of one and two-bedroom private pool villas available, with private gardens that boast outdoor showers, plunge pools and a small terrace area for lounging in the sun.
Facilities include the La Ceiba restaurant which serves up produce from Ka'ana's own organic garden, the Wallace Bar which is a great spot for cocktails, a shared swimming pool, a yoga deck and a relaxing spa, all hidden within the lush tropical gardens.
There are just 17 suites and villas at Ka'ana, all of which are modern in design with a neutral color theme and bright splashes where handcrafted Belizean textiles feature. All rooms have AC, iPod docks, flat-screen TV, minibar, complimentary WiFi and safes. They all have a separate private seating area outside, with either a hammock or loungers.
Children are welcome at Ka'ana, and a range of family-friendly experiences can be arranged, however we would suggest that it is better suited to couples or honeymooners. The two-bedroom private pool villas provide ideal family accommodation and the casita suites also offer the option of twin beds for those who do not need a separate villa.
Facilities at Ka'ana include a swimming pool, yoga deck and spa, as well as an 'Adventure Desk' where you can organize any activities you may wish throughout your stay. Teh yoga deck is open daily from sunrise to sunset, and complimentary classes are organized on Tuesdays and Fridays at 7am. There is an organic garden which produces many of La Ceiba restaurant's ingredients, The Wallace Bar and an impressive wine cellar to boot.
The Cayo District and Mountain Pine Ridge are a paradise for adventurers and guests can enjoy exploring tropical jungle, a series of underground caves, and even nearby Mayan ruins at Tikal and Xunantunich (although we would usually recommend doing this from a lodge in the area).
