South Stann Creek, Southern Belize
Voted the #1 resort in Belize in 2012 by Conde Nast Traveler, Kanantik Reef & Jungle Resort is an intimate luxury property fronting 1,300 feet of private, palm-fringed sandy beach in southern Belize and surrounded by 300 acres of jungle, for a feeling of complete seclusion. The resort's 25 private, thatched-roof cabanas all have ocean veiws and are designed to harmonize with their natural environs. The air-conditioned cabanas, constructed with an ancient Mayan flair, feature soaring thatched roofs, locally sourced hardwood floors, four-poster king-size beds (double-bedded accommodations are also available), comfortable handcrafted furnishings, large en suite bathrooms with a luxurious hot and cold rain shower, and private deck with amazing views. With some of Belize’s finest scuba diving and snorkeling just outside your door, as well as on-site wildlife sightings—jaguars occasionally visit the property!—Kanantik is an ideal location for exploring Belize's barrier reef and jungle backdrop.
