Ka’ana Boutique Resort

Conveniently located near all major touring attractions in the Cayo District of Belize, Ka’ana Boutique Luxury Resort is Belize’s first Small Luxury Hotel Of The World and the only choice for discerning travelers. With nearby cultural, historical and eco-adventure attractions, guests can utilize Ka’ana as an ultra-luxurious and exclusive out-post. Adventure seekers can experience what was once the center of the Mayan Empire, while our team of culinary artisans immerse you in authentic Belizean gourmet cuisine. Enjoy the best of Belize – its people, its food, and its attractions at a world class resort that pays respectful homage to this truly spectacular destination.


Ka’ana was created for those who appreciate the elegant luxuries of a world class resort, yet yearn to experience new frontiers. Perfectly located in the midst of everything a Central American vacation could possibly offer, Ka’ana is a haven of understated luxury with a considered design style, distinguished culinary experiences and an extensive wine cellar adjacent to pristine jungle.

At Ka’ana, we value authenticity. We want you to truly experience the raw, natural beauty this destination offers. We brought together an abundance of local materials and worked with the best local carpenters, artists, artisans and musicians to create a sanctuary that is authentic in nature, while world-class in stature.

We take passion and pride in our design and our personalised service, in working sustainably with our local partners and in caring for our environment. We strive to deliver the ultimate in luxury whilst nurturing the very environment that drew you to this region. We believe that luxury and sustainability can co-exist and we have created something progressive and subtle, luxurious and simple, international and local, all at once.


Ka’ana Boutique Resort and Spa was built with a specific philosophy and design. This philosophy and design speak to the traveller who desires to experience the culture, history, and geography of an unknown region without having to sacrifice the comforts and amenities they are accustomed to.

From the modern, luxury amenities framed by local art and woodwork to a modern, clean design scheme that showcases the outside without allowing it inside, Ka’ana introduces inland Belize to the experiential traveler with an appreciation for comfort and luxury.


At Ka’ana it is all about you, not us! However, in order to successfully cater to our clients we first had to select a winning team of professionals who will care for you during your stay. And as an extension of that, ownership and management are very committed to the community and we remain committed to outreach work in Western Belize.

In 2008, it’s first year of business, Ka’ana became the first recipient of a new award given by the Chamber of Commerce and Rotary of Belize. From over 600 tourism businesses we were chosen as the Tourism Employer of the Year, and we take that as a direct credit to the hard work and dedication put in by our team.

The ultimate result is to ensure that your Belizean Holiday is as seamless as possible and it is with this in mind we open our doors, our hearts, our minds, and more importantly our ears before we welcome you to our little corner of the world. By opening our ears and listening to you and our past guests, we are consistently refining our product to ensure the highest possible level of customer satisfaction.



An enormous amount of care and attention went into the planning and design of our Belize accommodations. Our designers were conscious of the fact that our guests, while here to enjoy inland adventure and the cultural diversity of Belize, appreciate the conveniences they have come to expect in the world’s premier resorts.

Ka’ana is truly Belizean inspired in its décor and there are tributes to local craftsmen in all areas of the resort. Local artist, Jorge Landero, was commissioned to convey the spirit of the Maya in the wall art. The Art in your room will be changed on the 4th night of your stay in an attempt to expose you to even more of these local masterpieces. Elmer Panti hand crafted all the slate work, including the restaurant coasters, which are yet another example of how skilled the local craftsmen truly are.

We are confident that you will enjoy being immersed in the colors, textures, fabrics, and creations of Belize’s most skilled artisans and that you will appreciate the subtle homage we pay to our history and culture. Come join us soon to experience the best Belize accommodations that San Ignacio resorts or hotels have to offer.

La Ceiba Restaurant

The La Ceiba Restaurant and its team of culinary artisans take cuisine very seriously. Our mandate is to actively define authentic Belizean Gourmet Cuisine reflective of the multiple regions and cultures of Belize. Fresh ingredients from the resort’s organic garden and an extensive selection from the private cellar help define Belize’s premier dining experience.

Frieze Lounge

With spacious indoor seating and inviting outdoor terraces, the Frieze Lounge offers both a relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere. Arguably one of the best mixologists in Belize, “Polo” Arguelles presents a unique blend of local offerings, refreshing versions of classic favorites and signature cocktails paired with “Pedasitos” – a small taste of authentic Belizean and Central American cuisine.

Wine Cellar

Ka’ana boasts the largest wine cellar in Western Belize.

We are constantly on the lookout for unusual and fine wines and the cellar selection never stands still for long. Supply lines to Belize are somewhat challenging and we are careful to use shippers and handlers who we know are storing and handling bottles with “baby like” care.

To ensure guests are exposed to the cellar, our management team welcomes all new guests on their first night of arrival with a “Craboo” tasting. Craboo is a quality Belizean liqueur and whilst Belize does not make world-class wines it does make other highly palatable and memorable beverage products.

Organic Garden

The Ka’ana Organic Garden, located on the grounds of the resort, is a labour of love. Don Oscar, our local gardener guarantees that the culinary team uses only the freshest vegetables and herbs. Don Oscar knows when each ingredient is just ripe and ready to be picked – then he hand delivers it to the culinary team.

Private Dining Experience

What is a private dining experience?

It is a custom dining experience. Our team of service professionals set your table in a unique location around the property where yours will be the only table in that location for the evening. Choices of locations vary depending on the weather but currently include: Upper Deck Poolside, Lower Deck Poolside, Stargazing Terrace, Wine Cellar*

You can consult with your chef to design your menu for the evening or simply allow it to be a culinary surprise. The dinner is four-course and your private dining room will be adorned with candles or torches as well as a private local musician.



The Spa at Ka’ana is an intimate escape from the stresses of the outside world. It is our mission to deliver spa experiences that are both unique and memorable, and very much beyond expectations. The signature ingredients infused in all our spa treatments are carefully selected from our organic garden as well as the surrounding regions. The earth’s natural minerals and botanicals help the skin’s impurities, improve natural appearance, and restore well-being.

Energy Work

Ka’ana is proud to be working exclusively with the last Mayan Shaman in the region, Dr. Rosario Panti (Doña Rosa). Rosario started her training at the tender age of 7, when she spent 3 years learning about the healing powers of the rainforest from her grandfather, the world-renowned healer Elijio Panti.

When Elijio passed away at 103 years of age, he left his knowledge and experience behind in the hands of Rosario who had at this stage worked with him for over 20 years.

Mayan Healing methods date back almost 4,500 years, and are based largely off clearing any blockages within a persons energy flow, and in some cases herbal rainforest remedies. Similar to Eastern medicines, the Mayan Healing is structured in an holistic way, to address health concerns in body, mind and spirit.



ka’ana Boutique Resort and Spa with its intimate settings, lush landscaping, and highly personalized service can also be booked exclusively for a private event or retreat. The entire resort and its on-site amenities can be yours as well as the help and organization of our event planners and experienced staff.

Year round availability allows for weddings, retirement parties, business meetings, anniversaries, women’s retreats & more. Enjoy the culture, history, and geography of inland Belize in a luxury outpost dedicated to anticipating your every need.

The lush tropical landscape creates the natural backdrop for your special event.

Conferences and Retreats

Often the best results from any meeting are closely attached to the location, comfort of the delegates during the meeting, a peaceful slumber at night and the level of service afforded delegates through out their stay.

We tick all the above boxes ensuring that any meeting or event is well planned, well serviced and the only end result to be expected is a successful one!

Our small but well set out meeting room allows for 14 boardroom style or 20 theatre style and we have modern AV equipment for hire.
