We had an amazing trip to Kanu Private Island
“We had an amazing trip to Kanu Private Island. The island is very beautiful. I would look around each day and couldn’t believe how spectacular the views were. Every night the sunsets were gorgeous. Kanu is a little slice of heaven to be so close to the ocean and feel the breeze for a week. We stayed at Kanu with 3 families - 14 people in total. The great room is open air with a palapa roof and we loved hanging out there during the day. The pool is good sized and felt refreshing on a hot day. The bedrooms are very roomy (and air conditioned!) with comfortable beds and each one has a million dollar view of the ocean.
We loved to snorkel, kayak, and paddle board around the island. The ocean was like warm bath water. There is a beautiful healthy reef that surrounds the island. So awesome to have a private reef all to yourself. We saw lots of beautiful reef fish including a nurse shark, octopus, squid, crab, eagle ray, conch, star fish, cucumber, lots of barracuda and sting ray right around Kanu. A magical moment was when a pod of dolphins swam by at sunset while I was out paddle boarding.
Living on a private island for a week is a mind blowing vacation and made even better by such an awesome staff. They were kind, professional and very hard working. We loved the food prepared by Chef Ric. The drinks were heaven. Noe and staff did a great job making sure the island is beautiful and things work well. Jackie and Malrie were awesome with house keeping and daily massages. We had some fun fishing excursions with Kory and explored nearby Laughingbird Caye island.
We loved our vacation at Kanu and can’t wait to return. Thank you for sharing this amazing island!!”
a great place for a family reunion
Everyone had an enjoyable time on the island, it’s a great place for a family reunion with plenty of activities to meet anyone’s interests. The logistics getting from Belize City to the Island and back were excellent, we were met every step by friendly and helpful staff. On the island the facilities and staff were also excellent, the staff friendly and accommodating at all times.
The staff is incredible
We had a simply amazing time at Kanu Island! The staff is incredible and very kind as well as attentive to our every need. Anna and Jesse are absolutely the best. A great asset to your company. The island itself couldn't have been any more beautiful and well appointed. Every inch of that island was well thought out and utilized. Loved the carpet grass. The suites were superb.
