Our favourite rooms
Go for a Master Suite, for its light and bright ambiance, Belizean artwork, and the private front garden with your own outdoor shower. Or, splurge on a Villa, which comes complete with personal butler service and a garden-set plunge pool.
Water cascades into the 26ft infinity pool, which is flanked by banana plants and tropical flowers in the courtyard.
Organic local products are put to excellent use in restorative spa treatments including reiki, deep cleansing facials, and Maya abdominal massage. Kombucha and fever grass tea are served after every treatment.
Yes, bring swimwear for the seductive pool, but also pack some gear that’s sturdy enough for adventurous activities, like horse riding and trekking to Maya ruins.
Ka’ana isn’t set up for wheelchair users.
Dogs weighing under 25lbs are welcome, for $25 a night. See more pet-friendly hotels in Belize.
All ages welcome. Cots can be added to all rooms for free, and there are highchairs available at the restaurant. Babysitting is available for $20 an hour.
With nature so close at hand, the hotel goes to great lengths to protect it. Everyone from the cleaners to the cooks uses organic products, sourced locally wherever possible – the on-site farm provides fruit, vegetables and eggs; hardwood furniture is commissioned from local artisans.
