Reef and Jungle Resort
ABOUT KANANTIK - in their own words:
Kanantik, an eco-sensitive resort on the southern coast of Belize, was built within the natural environment and makes every attempt to preserve the pristine setting established by nature.
Surround yourself...in 300 acres of natural and untouched land, full of wildlife.
Unusual and distinct birds and wildlife join together to provide a surround-sound of amazing clarity and resonance. Kanantik is the only Resort in Belize able to offer the best of two worlds; built on the seashore yet with all the fascination of the jungle.
In designing Kanantik, we set out to offer a one-of-a-kind blend of luxury and seclusion. From the interior design, styled in the Mayan tradition, and the hand crafted furnishing to the vast amounts of preserved forest, we included and preserved all that is beautiful from the area and added superb service and excellent cuisine. We have an Italian fire wood pizza oven, an authentic gelato machine, and of course our bar is equipped with espresso machine!
Each one of our 25 thatched-roof cabaņas is indulgently spacious and luxurious, all with air conditioning. Each is set apart for maximum privacy. Designed with a unique blend of Mayan tradition and contemporary style. Choose king or double-bedded cabaņas, all with handcrafted furnishings and a large deck for relaxing.
Do it all, or nothing...
THE NATURAL BEAUTY OF KANANTIK
You're here. What to do? Our Mayan tour guides will take you deep in the forest, canoeing in scenic, nearly uncharted rivers, to the adjacent Sapodilla Lagoon where manatee can be seen, or to the Cockscomb Basin, the world's first jaguar sanctuary - all 150,000 acres of it. Scenic hikes led by Kanantik guides take guests to dazzling waterfalls. Hummingbirds and butterflies flock to the flowering plants that line the trail while several of the 500 species of birds that call Belize home can be spotted in the towering trees above.
There is a complete dive shop with a Newton 42' dive boat; a Newton 32' deep sea fishing boat; 1300 feet of palm shaded private beach; swimming in our freshwater pool; sailing on our Hobie Cat sailboat; sea kayaking; snorkeling; excursions to nearby Sapodilla Lagoon where you may see manatee; river canoeing; birding; forest and jungle hiking; or just lazing in your hammock. Every day is exactly as you want it to be.
