Most of our lives are marked by a daily rush and fast-paced decisions. Moving around cosmopolitan cities and keeping up to date with all of life’s responsibilities at breakneck speed can easily take a toll on our wellbeing and peace of mind. Often, we plan a vacation longing to get away from this turmoil, and end up tangled in the same chaotic cityscape, only a few thousand miles away from home. Choosing an adequate destination is key to properly relax and achieve some inner peace. Thus, the Caribbean has risen in the recent years as an idyllic escape location for its peaceful blue sea and tranquil climate. In the middle of the region rises the beach town of Placencia, Belize, and just a few minutes off-coast, a coral island of incomparable beauty hides in the blue sea, Kanu, your personal piece of paradise.
The private island is a safe haven for people wishing to take a rest from the day-to-day hustle, while keeping their loved ones within arm’s reach. Kanu’s 2.5-acre surface features five fully equipped villas, 1000 square feet each, to accommodate up to 10 adults and 10 children, allowing for a whole-family vacation. While the island is aimed to keep families and friends together, each villa is also spaced from each other to provide adequate privacy, while the locale itself is intimate in its location. All villas have views to the ocean, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, flatscreen TVs in all rooms, and laundry service, to help visitors be comfortable wherever and whenever. All villas share a communal kitchen and bar at the central palapa, next to the island’s own swimming pool, a perfect space for harmonious get-along among all guests. Pleasure oozes from every inch of the island, complete with an all-encompassing visual aesthetic incorporating coral stone and rose wood, shades of sea and sun fitting perfectly in the larger Caribbean landscape.
Kanu is also conveniently placed among many amenities unique to the region. Placencia, 15 minutes away from the island, is the hub of the Belizean peninsula, featuring high end restaurants, bars, and stores. The pace of life is slow, leisurely strolling along to ensure visitors leave town well-rested. For the more adventure-oriented, natural experiences area also readily available, ranging from kayak and paddleboard tours around the neighbouring islands in the range and boat trips with a personal captain around the Caribbean sea, to snorkelling and diving trips to some of the world’s richest spots, including a yearly chance from March to June to dive along a magnificent Whale Shark. Scuba diving within the Gladden Spit and Silk Cayes Marine Reserve is possible, as well as spear fishing and deep-sea fishing outside of the reserves. All equipment is provided by Kanu, as part of their all-inclusive features.
Kanu prides itself in keeping up with the guests’ every wish, and their all-inclusive fares comprehend everything from transfers to and from the island, accommodations, meals by a personal chef, beverages (sans premium alcohol, available at an additional charge), personal concierge services, a personal boat captain, fishing and snorkelling guides, the aforementioned equipment usage, and up to 4 massages per day.
Whether you are looking for a personal escape or a complete family vacation, Kanu is a prime option to take a break from the rush and hustle of cities, an ideal place for pure relaxation and leisure activities. Enjoy the drowsy sun bathing the calm waters of the Caribbean while indulging in the best of luxury food and drinks, with top-notch accommodations, and visit Kanu, a tropical paradise any time of the year.
