Set just down the road from the Mayan ruins at Xunantunich and the Guatemalan border, Ka’ana—Mayan for “heavenly place”—opened in 2007 as the first luxury resort in Western Belize. The resort’s main hacienda has five Balam rooms overlooking the infinity pool; 15 larger, semi-independent casitas are tucked among the property’s shade palms and lush tropical foliage. All have interiors that combine local craftsmanship with contemporary cool—furnishings made from indigenous wood and stone share space with plasma flat-screens, iPod docking stations, and personal espresso machines (in a unique twist, the Mayan-inspired wall art from local painter Jorge Landero is switched every four days). The restaurant makes use of local ingredients, many from the resort’s own organic garden.
