Kanantik Reef & Jungle Resort in Sittee, Belize

Kanantik Reef & Jungle Resort is a combination of a beach resort and a jungle resort. It is located in the Sanctuary Belize in the Stann Creek District of Belize, next to the Cockscomb Basic Wildlife Sanctuary, a jaguar preserve. The resort is used by the Sanctuary Belize to accommodate their potential investors.

Kanantik Reef & Jungle Resort has a total of 25 cabanas on the beach with the jungle of Belize in your backyard. All cabanas have a private deck including a hammock. Rates for a stay in a cabana start at BZD 684 (USD 342) per night for double occupancy. The cabanas do have airconditioning, but no television. The resort is warning that you probably will share your cabana some time with one or more insects. Something that is not uncommon in Belize, especially while Kanantik Lodge is not using chemical ways to get the insects away. 
 
Amenities of the Kanantik Lodge include an oceanfront salt-water pool and whirlpool, a private 1300-foot stretch of beach with hammocks on the beach and a Mayan-inspired restaurant, which is using the produce of the garden of the resort. The restaurant is actually you're only option for dinner due to the secluded location of Kanantik and it offers some options everyday depending on the available fresh ingredients.


Activities which Kanantik Reef & Jungle Resort is offering include snorkeling, scuba diving, sea kayaking, sailing, fishing, river canoeing on the Cabbage Haul Creek, Hobie Cat sailing, trekking through the jungle, bird-watching tours, horseback riding, a visit to the Cockscomb Basin Jaguar Preserve with the possibility to see a jaguar, and tours to cultural and ecological sites as Xunantunich. Occasionally at night at the resort their is a performance from the local Garifuna community. 
 
Kanantik Reef & Jungle Resort is promoting their dive options including their onsite dive shop, but from reviews is clear that this option has not been available for some time. The guests who reviewed had to make appointments with a dive shop in Hopkins, which added two times an one hour drive to their day. If the diving is available, the location of the resort is absolutely perfect with a short distance to the second Barrier Reef in the world. The Barrier Reef is 12 miles east of Kanantik Lodge, a 45 minutes boat ride. 
 
The location of this resort, makes it as more resorts in Belize, a nice location for a honeymoon. This resort also offers the option for a Belizean wedding
 
The reviews of Kanantik Reef & Jungle Resort are mostly very good to excellent with complements for the staff, but there are some complaints. Most of the complaints are from before the redecoration in 2012. Some comments to pay attention to are that it is a remote resort, so no other facilities in the direct neighborhood and the resort is used to accommodate the people who are looking in investing in Sanctuary Belize, so it can be busy sometimes.
