A Memorial Day Sale To Jump On for a Belize Getaway

by Carolee Chanona

With spring travel in full swing, it’s time for us to think ahead: travel is returning, and summer is around the corner. On the last Monday of May, Americans pause to observe Memorial Day, a national holiday that honors those that have died during their service in the United States armed forces. As the United States of America reflects, it also celebrates: the three-day holiday weekend next month is what typically marks the start of summer. And according to the AAA, more than 36 million Americans travel during this weekend every year, bound for sunny escapes like Belize. Long story short, if you’re even thinking about making Memorial Day weekend plans, now’s the time to do it before everything gets booked up — and we’ve got a sunny sale in Belize with two sister properties to jump on now.

Itz’ana Resort

A quick escape—solo, with your partner, girlfriends, or even family—awaits at Itz’ana Resort & Residencies in Belize this President’s Day weekend. From a walk through the village’s interior sidewalks to an evening of fine beach dining and mixology, here are some ideas on how to spend a perfect long weekend at Itz’ana Resort. Besides, you’re steps away from one of the world’s most famous beaches, the Placencia Peninsula ranked by Lonely Planet as “the best for peace and quiet.” 

head into either your Deluxe Room, Beachfront Suite, or Villa to get acquainted with your new accommodations. That is, after getting your welcome drink (rum-spiked or on the healthier side, with local sea moss) to be an aperitif before your on-property Mixology Class. On day 2, head into either Placencia Village for seaside art and local gelato, or offshore to a daytripper’s paradise like Moho Caye.

Day three’s itinerary is easy: worship the sun from the likes of the beach, your veranda, or poolside until it’s time to pack up and promise to be back again soon.

Ka’ana Resort

If you’re lingering for a rainforest retreat instead, you can find it at Ka’ana Resort inside its Casita Suites, Master Suites, or Villas. Housed in a hacienda-style home on the grounds, guests can enjoy private entrances with lovely outdoor sitting areas overlooking the pool or tropical gardens in the 1- or 2-bedroom villas.

After a two-hour car ride from the Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport in Belize City, entering the resort points you in the right direction: immediately off the road, you’re welcomed into a lush oasis. There’s an organic garden, a pool with a sunbathing terrace and cocktail service, a luxury spa, and the La Ceiba Restaurant, which specializes in farm to jungle cuisine.

A Tale of Two Worlds

Traveling outside of Memorial Day to Belize? Then make the most of your Caribbean escape and experience jungle-class authenticity at both sister properties, Ka’ana Resort and Itz’ana, with their Tale of Two Worlds package. From private land transfers between both properties to curating local experiences and offering daily breakfast and dinner, this special package fuses the very best of the two sites.
