Placencia, Belize (PRWEB) November 18, 2007
The owners of Kanantik Reef & Jungle Resort (http://www.kanantik.net), an exclusive eco-sensitive resort on the southern coast of beautiful Belize, announce the sale of this one-of-kind property for the stated bid of $7.9 million (U.S.).
Kanantik, a Maya Mopan word which means "to take care of", has more than lived up its name among discerning travelers from around the world. After building the resort into a premier Belize destination for adventure seekers and honeymooners alike, its co-owners are retiring and seeking out a new caretaker who will continue the proud tradition of combining ecological sensitivity with first-rate luxury.
"Although it's time for me to move on", said co-owner Roberto Fabbri, "Kanantik holds a special place in my heart and I hope to find someone who agrees that this tropical paradise is like no other place in the Caribbean."
Sensitively built within its natural environment, Kanantik indeed features a unique blend of luxury and seclusion rarely found in Caribbean resorts - and rarer still among Belize resorts for sale. Of the property's 300 acres, the majority has been preserved in its pristine natural state. The private beachfront features native tropical plants throughout the landscape and the 25 thatched-roof cabanas all feature handcrafted furnishings and local art.
Nestled amid 1,300 feet of palm-shaded coastline, the 25 exquisitely handcrafted cabanas boast a Maya-inspired style that has garnered glowing reviews in Architectural Digest, Travel & Leisure and Delicious Living.
Additional write-ups about the resort have poured in from publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Outside Traveler, National Geographic Traveler and American Way, reaffirming Kanantik's status as a spectacular destination that one guest has described as "Gilligan's Island meets the Ritz."
On the property, a central building hosts the reservation desk and open-air thatched-roof bar, a separate thatched-roof dining hall boasts a wood-burning pizza oven and an on-site dive shop fully stocked with diving gear. In addition, the self-sufficient resort includes accommodations for up to 45 staff, a private 3,000-foot paved airstrip, two large Newton dive boats and other land and sea vehicles and equipment.
Thanks to its breathtaking setting, resort guests have unparalleled opportunities to view exotic birds and wildlife through observation towers that feature panoramic mountain and jungle canopy vistas. Kanantik also offers popular tourist activities such as canoeing down a jungle river, sailing on its Hobie Cat sailboat, kayaking in the Caribbean, snorkeling along the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere, or just taking a refreshing swim in Kanantik's freshwater pool.
Unsurprisingly, Kanantik has made a name for itself on the Internet as well, with an eye-catching home page (http://www.kanantik.com) and the top position on Google for "Belize resorts", "all inclusive Belize", and "luxury Belize resorts."
Because this is an unusual offering of both land and a profitable resort, special consideration must be taken to maintain confidentiality for both buyer and seller. Any inquiries for operational information will require a signed non-disclosure agreement and reasonable proof of ability to purchase the property and resort. The property will be sold subject to the terms of the Purchase and Sale Agreement. Inspections of the grounds and property can be arranged upon request.
