The recent trend of ultimate luxury has expanded beyond just cushy accommodations and stunning views. The new definition of ultimate luxury now includes a sense of environmentalism, hence the new hybrid model of “eco-luxury.” As implied in its name, eco-luxury gives guests comfort and pamper of luxury with minimal burden on the environment.
Oftentimes, these eco-luxury resorts incorporate nature into their overall architecture and resort experience. Ka’ana Belize, a boutique, eco-luxury resort on the Western border of Belize does just that.
Earlier this month, Ka’ana Belize introduced the opening of two new Private Pool Villas. Staying true to its commitment to culture and the environment, the villas combine the vision of designer, Eric Ledoit’s Parisian-Guatemalan elements, and its vision to promote what is local and authentic through global influences.
Known for its culturally diverse and authentic designs, Ledoit’s has designed hotels from around the world, from Bali and Botswana to Thailand and St. Barths, all infused with locally-sourced materials, craftsmen, carpenters, and builders.
Upholding one of the pivotal features of an eco-luxury resort, Ka’ana Belize successfully blended the indoor-outdoor feel of the villas to mirror Ka’ana’s ethos of balancing adventure with luxury, and paves the way for luxury accommodations in Belize. The villas come in one-bedroom and two-bedrooms. The one-bedroom villa is situated off a secluded garden pathway. The 1,250 square-foot space boasts the most current amenities while embracing the culture and history of inland Belize.
The Villa hosts a private plunge pool, an expansive outdoor terrace and gardens, an outdoor shower, a pre-stocked personalized mini bar and, of course, a private butler and housekeeper. After an active day of exploring the Mayan ruins of Belize, guests can rest in the California King bed with 500 thread count sheets in the air-conditioned villa. Though guests may not opt to check emails in a paradise setting, but the option of complimentary wireless is available.
The only thing more impressive than the one-bedroom villa is the two-bedroom villa at the Ka’ana. With handmade bamboo headboards, custom-built antique iron doors and 2,400 square feet of private sanctuary, the villa features a master bedroom and a spacious guest room, as well as a private plunge pool, private outdoor gardens and living and dining areas. Private outdoor showers, a pre-stocked private outdoor wet bar also all come with the two-bedroom villa. And of course, you can’t forget the private butler and housekeeper.
Lush Maya Mountains, famed cultural and historical exploration sites, Ka’ana is one of the most easily accessible inland havens for adventurers or just ones with a taste for fine dining and world-class relaxation.
