It’s good to be the first…in Ka’ana Boutique Hotel’s case, they’re the first luxury boutique hotel in Belize to offer an ultra-lavish level of service and atmosphere, the first world-class resort in the center of what was once the ancient Mayan empire, and the first in this beautiful country to become a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Ka’Ana is truly the best of Belize- supreme service, absolute privacy, and authentic Belizean gourmet cuisine.

What’s most inspiring here is the omnipresent sense of tribute and respect to both local skilled craftsmen and the mystical members of the ancient past. The décor here is brilliantly Belizean- brilliant fusions of colors, textures, gracious Mayan artwork adorning the walls, even the drink coasters are hand-carved. Their hacienda and casita-style accommodations are incredibly private and majestic, with high ceilings, private terraces to lay about on and take in the aroma of the fragrant tropical fruit trees, luxurious linens to laze on, plasma TVs, iPod docking stations, and a special touch on your 4th night. We won’t tell you what it is, you’ll have to find out yourself.

Dining here is an incredible experience- eclectic Central American/European fusion dishes lining the menu created with ingredients grown in the property’s organic garden. Ka’Ana boasts the largest wine cellar in Belize, and you can even indulge in a Fantasy Dining night where you can completely customize your evening down to the location of your private table, menu, wines and table décor. Especially ideal for proposals or special occasions. http://www.kaanabelize.com/
