What I liked:

Our room was large and its setting in a lush garden, lit by candles at night was nice.

The tour to Tikal lead by Hugo was wonderful.

What the hotel could do better:

It is difficult to put a finger on why we were disappointed by our stay. The style of service seemed geared towards older americans. The bar and restaurant staff were charming but we found the attitude of the tour organiser off putting.

The prices in the restaurant were high given the quality of the food - paying $32 for a fillet steak that was neither a fillet or cooked rare as requested was irritating.

We felt like we were being ripped off more than once, for example the hotel proposed a charge of $370 to drive us to the border with Mexico - in the end we arranged the transfer ourselves with an excellent local provider for $250.

Hotel Description

From a trip to San Ignacio, in western Belize’s Mayan country, one expects ancient culture, stunning scenery, and a bit of outdoor adventure. Less common is the sort of small-scale full-service luxury experience that’s on offer at the Ka’ana Boutique Resort & Spa, a hotel which combines the typical Belizean tropical escape with all the style (and all the trappings) of a cosmopolitan city-boutique stay.

It’s by some distance the most upscale lodging in the area, its seventeen rooms understated yet plush, and divided into four categories: the standard “Balam” rooms around the pool, with their queen beds and plasma televisions, the free-standing queen casitas flanking the garden path, the master casitas with their private gardens and outdoor showers, and the private pool villas, complete with dedicated housemen.

The move toward the high end of the market doesn’t compromise Ka’ana’s relationship with its environment. Environmental sustainability is a top concern, along with cultural preservation; the spa employs the services of Cayo’s last remaining Mayan shaman. The cuisine is similarly local and sustainable, much of it drawn from the hotel’s organic garden. And it’s in the interface with its surroundings that Ka’ana truly shines — a top-quality hotel experience is worth remarking upon, but it’s the archaeological expeditions, the rainforest canopy tours, the river kayak or horseback treks, that make the experience truly extraordinary.

How to get there:

Ka’ana Boutique Resort & Spa is located 116 kilometers from Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport (BZE). Airport transfers are available for $175, plus tax for up to 4 guests, each way. Please contact customerservice@tablethotels.com to arrange airport transfers.
