An innovative model of eco-sensitive design, Kanantik blends organically with its breathtaking natural surroundings while bringing you the modern comforts and amenities of the world’s best resorts.

Your backyard: the lush jungle. Your playground: the blue Caribbean and barrier reef waiting to be explored. Your retreat: a sumptuously appointed cabana mere steps from the sea. And your Kanantik guides are ready to lead you on unforgettable new adventures just outside your cabana door.

Location

As close as you’ll ever come to the Garden of Eden. More than where we are, Belize is who we are. Kanantik offers the country’s most authentic Belizean experience, located on the most coveted acreage of countryside. Only Kanantik brings you the very best of Belize’s mysterious jungle, gorgeous sandy beaches, ancient Mayan ruins, cascading waterfalls, and one of the Western Hemisphere’s premier diving reefs.
All in one extraordinary destination.

Sheltered by palm trees on 1300 lush acres in Southern Belize, Kanantik kisses the edges of the nearby Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, a jaguar preserve and bird-watcher’s paradise. Our 25 private stand-alone cabanas open onto the clear azure waters of the Caribbean, with only a small stretch of sandy beach between you and the ocean.

On any given day, you can hike to the top of a waterfall overlooking the jungle canopy, dive a reef site you’ll most likely have all to yourself, attempt to decipher the markings on an ancient Mayan ruin, and still have time to watch the sun set over the mountains from your hammock on your personal cabana deck. The area surrounding Kanantik is filled with secret finds waiting to be discovered, and our knowledgeable guides know the most scenic routes to them all.

Yes, Kanantik is about as far from ordinary as you can travel. But getting here is a quick and easy direct flight to our private airstrip located right here on resort grounds. How to Get to Kanantik.

About

Can luxury and nature live together? We believe they can. Kanantik Reef & Jungle Resort is a model of success in sustainable, eco-sensitive and low-impact design that preserves the natural surroundings while providing a superior resort experience. Located in a secluded and untouched region of Southern Belize, Kanantik is as rare and extraordinary as the land around us. We are committed to protecting
this land so that our guests may continue to enjoy and experience
it just as Mother Nature intended.

Kanantik’s 25 luxurious private cabanas, salt-water pool and world-class restaurant are found on 1300 acres of untouched jungle, home to a menagerie of wildlife and flora. Neighboring the resort is the acclaimed Cockscomb Basic Wildlife Sanctuary, a preserve for the elusive jaguar. In their natural journeys across the jungle, tropical birds and animals, including jaguars, make occasional appearances at our resort. Sharing these rare and unforgettable sightings with our guests is one of our most pleasurable rewards.

With the jungle and mountains behind us, Kanantik looks out over the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. No other resort in Belize offers this magical blend of jungle refuge and tropical beach — all yours to enjoy right outside your cabana door. This unique and secluded setting makes Kanantik the ideal destination for divers, trekkers, honeymooners and eco-adventurers who appreciate Belize’s natural beauty and wilderness as much as we do.

Getting Here

Your spirits soar the moment you land. Getting to paradise is easier than you think. Kanantik owns and operates an exclusive private airstrip located right on the resort property, so that our guests can begin enjoying their exceptional experience
the instant they touch the ground.

The country of Belize is short flight away from the continental US. Nonstop flights arrive at the main International Airport in Belize City (BZE) from major US cities including Miami, New York, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston and Charlotte. Major airlines flying to Belize include American Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways and Delta Airlines. After arriving at the airport in Belize City, you’ll be asked to go through Immigration and Customs.

From there, it’s a 20-minute direct flight over breathtaking countryside to Kanantik’s private airstrip. Maya Island Air offers regularly scheduled direct flights daily. Waiting for you when you land, your personal Kanantik guides greet you at the airstrip to assist with luggage and escort you to check-in. You’ll arrive refreshed and relaxed — two states of mind you’ll soon become intimately familiar with.

Awards

Our guests might prefer to keep Kanantik Reef & Jungle Resort their secret slice of paradise. But while we’re definitely located off the beaten path — and on Belize’s most beautiful stretch of beach-front wilderness — we’ve been getting plenty of recognition from our industry’s most prestigious publications including Condé Nast Traveler and Trip Advisor. Award-winning Kanatik has been ranked the #1 Resort in Belize, the #1 resort in Central and South America, and among the world’s Top 100 Resorts and Hotels for 2012 according to Condé Nast.
