Spa consultant Diana Mestre and design firm Saballos Architects have co-created a new wellness temple concept for five-star boutique resort Ka'ana in San Ignacio, Belize.

Mestre – of Mestre & Mestre Spa & Wellness Consultants – says the spa will open at the end of 2024 and showcase ancient Mayan traditions in an indoor-outdoor setting.

True to its Mayan name, Ka'ana meaning, 'heavenly place', the resort is nestled in the heart of the tropical jungle of western Belize.

“The spa will bring the spirit and wisdom of the jungle to the heart of Ka’ana´s guests,” explained Mestre, “the facility will be woven into temple-like structures and constructed using light wood and bamboo materials that blend in with the tropical surroundings.”

The upcoming 1,800sq m spa will feature two couple’s treatment rooms, two individual treatment rooms and one VIP Suite with a private pool. Each one will be named after Mayan Gods and accommodate treatments inspired by ancestral traditions from Mayan culture.

In addition, guests will have access to a sensory relaxation room surrounded by an organic herbal garden, an outdoor experience area for steam and sauna experiences and a traditional Temazcal, as well as a Fire Circle, a Yoga Deck, rain showers and outdoor cenote-like pools of varying temperatures.

To complete the offering, the spa will also be home to a Sana-Healthy Bar and a Botíca – an apothecary-style boutique for guests to participate in the creation of their own personalised potions and elixirs.
