Ka'ana made our stay just perfect, with their touch of luxury in the jungle. The grounds are packed with wildlife, amazing gardens, helipad, pool, even their own Mayan Cooking station. The restaurant is just superb, with the most amazing meals, also the bar with its unique wine cellar (great options) and their mixologist at the bar. The Spa facilities are great and the treatment was amazing. You can book your own tours and experiences directly on site with their unique guides. Overall, just a perfect place in the middle of the jungle of San Ignacio, Cayo District.

If I could rate Ka’ana 100 stars I would! Our stay at Ka’ana was absolutely fantastic! From the moment it began to the minute we left every detail was top notch! The staff was beyond friendly and within 7 days became our family. They created an intimate experience that blew us away, making every moment of our elopement memorable. Our room was beautiful with its own private garden and plunge pool to boot! We loved how eco conscious and sustainable everything was. The grounds were perfectly manicured, showcasing all of the flora that could potentially end up on your plate or in your drink that day! The food was OUTSTANDING! Every meal prepared with care and more delicious than I could have imagined! I’m still craving the ceviche! When we weren’t eating everything in site we were enjoying the most blissful massages ever! We had a beautiful elopement ceremony at Cahal Pech Archeological Reserve in the middle of our stay. All the planning of our special day was done with ease! All of my crazy requests (within reason) were granted! The day was filled with love from the time it started until it ended with an amazing dinner in their beautiful wine cellar. Once we were married we still had a few days left for adventure! The different tour’s they have available will make you feel like you’re Indians Jones or Lara Croft Tomb Raider! They are seamlessly curated to give you once in a life time experience! ATM IS A MUST! And don’t miss out on their Mayan Cooking Class if you are any type of foodie! The entire staff contributed to our wonderful time at Ka’ana Resort. I wish I had more words to express the joy I still feel from our trip. I know we will be regular guests at the resort for years to come. If you have any doubts booking at this lovely paradise look no further. Ka’ana Resort is hands down an experience of a lifetime! Whether you want a unique wedding or just want a relaxing vacay this place is simply perfect.

I highly recommend the Hyatt Ka’ana resort for your stay in San Ignacio. It’s absolutely beautiful up in the mountain in a jungle field. Leda was so kind at check in. We got a room with a deck /outdoor area that had an outdoor private bath tub and shower! I had so much fun having a wonderful bath outside in nature with rain and the birds. That was amazing. I highly recommend those rooms. There’s nothing like a Bath or a shower outdoors and nature. Breakfast was outstanding I had an amazing vegetable eggs from fresh organic vegetables of the area the cappuccino and coffee was delicious Lily was an amazing server. My dinner of red snapper which was a belizian favorite was definitely my favorite I loved how they had tiki torches and beautiful lighting outdoors for the dinner. The manager Wolfgang was so kind when he heard that we really enjoyed The Belizean soaps that was procured from the area, he Made sure that we got a lovely sampling. Clarita taught the most amazing cooking class using a Mayan wood stove called a fugon. She made the most amazing belizian food of rice, red beans and stewed chicken meal. It was wonderful to watch her cook over this fire and make such a delicious meal. And it was lovely because she actually sit down and eat it with me since I was the only guest. What a treat! I highly recommend asking for a cooking class there’s several different ones you can get. But trust me this was amazing and now I’m gonna make it at home for my kids. Make sure to take the amazing arduous ATM cave tour. Also loved the Mayan temple ruins. And the relaxing cave tubing to her was fantastic also with nature walk.

Ka'ana was nothing short of perfection during our stay. We had a small issue when arriving regarding our room and the manager fixed it instantly. The customer service here is better than anywhere I have ever stayed. The hotel and common areas were kept pristine, the staff was nothing short of AMAZING- so attentive and accommodating, and the food was delicious. We loved the room and the outdoor shower & tub. We would definitely coming back!

I have nothing but amazing things to say about my stay at Ka'ana and all of the staff. The resort is quaint and on a well maintained property with lush foliage and fauna. The hotel has an organic garden and farm with hens (as well as some goats and lambs as pets). You're far away enough from the center of the city to make it feel private but also close enough to sites and restaurants. The food was absolutely delicious, fresh and flavorful...we loved the pork entree, fry jack and papaya protein shake! The alcoholic drinks served by Miguel were fantastic; he's friendly and easy to talk to. We booked a tour through the hotel and had Brandon as our guide. He told us about his time growing up Belize and was very knowledgeable about the ruins and market . The staff really made us feel like family - they remembered our names and were very attentive. My husband and I stayed in the Balam room (#11) and a Casita Suite (#2) in August 2021. The Balam room overlooks the pool (so it can be noisy at times but wasn't a problem for us), is close to the spa, and has a nice view of the property. You enter an enclosed sun room with a hammock, table and chairs, followed by a separate entrance for the Aircon room with queen bed. The bed and bathrooms are a good size for 2 people to move around freely and decorated with Mayan accents. The Casita Suite is more modern with a hammock on the porch and spacious bedroom with a seating area to have a meal. The outdoor patio is the highlight: a deck to enjoy the jungle and stars, as well as an outdoor tub and shower. Both rooms are equipped with bottled and filtered water, a safe to store your valuables, shampoo, conditioner, soap, general toiletries, hair dryer, comfy towels and robes. Also there are umbrellas provided to use during the rainy season...you'll need them! Our stay at Ka'ana allowed us to rest and relax . I'd definitely recommend staying here I'd your budget allows for it. You won't be disappointed!
