Off the coast of Placencia, Belize sits a rare coral island of incomparable beauty, its white sands sloping gently into the Caribbean Sea. After creating the ultimate escape for just one or two couples at a time with Gladden Private Island, Private Islands CEO Chris Krolow and his development partner David Keener have returned to this Central American vacation hotspot to deliver another stylish hideaway. Kanu Private Island, opened in the summer of 2019, is only 15 minutes by boat from the mainland, but offers a one-of-a-kind sanctuary.

The 2.5-acre island ensures privacy with five individual 1,000-square-foot sleeping structures, each containing a breezily chic master bedroom suite with family-friendly loft and bamboo ceilings. A central palapa flanked by a swimming pool and sun loungers houses the communal kitchen, bar, and living area to bring everyone together. The soothing design palette incorporates coral stone and reclaimed wood, complemented with accent shades of the sea and sun.

But the real star at Kanu is the dazzling ocean, visible at every turn. The underwater sights are equally impressive, thanks to fish-filled coral heads just offshore. A 20-minute boat ride transports visitors to the Belize Barrier Reef for an even more expansive look at the region’s famous aquatic ecosystem.

Paradise Island

We did a girls trip to Kanu private island in September. It was amazing! We had a group of 10 moms and we were able to get some much needed relaxation and fun in. Massages and hanging by the pool everyday. The food was so good! Three meals a day plus snacks and drinks! It was the getaway we all needed to recharge! Everything was taken care of from the moment we got off the plane. 7 days in a true paradise!

We had a girls trip to the beautiful private island of Kanu. The staff was so helpful preparing fresh delicious meals, captaining the boat rides to see sharks, stingrays and turtles as well as being excellent fishing guides. We laughed around the big dining room table, told jokes on the outdoor couches, played volleyball and basketball in the pool and read books while enjoying our privacy. The kayaking, snorkeling and paddle boarding was amazing. The sunrise and sunset views were incredible. Each unique cottage had comfy beds and outdoor showers. The off site hiking, rappelling and ziplining was exciting. It was an adventure of a lifetime with dear friends. Highly recommended vacation to refresh, relax and enjoy!

Add this to your bucket list!

What an amazing experience! It is everything you envision when you think about staying on a tropical island. The accommodations were wonderful, spacious private rooms just steps from the ocean with everything you could need, as well as a great common area for gathering. Food Each meal was prepared with a local flair, good sized portions and everything tasted amazing. Activities There is something for everyone both on the island (swimming pool, paddle board, kayaking, ping-pong, billiards, games) and in the surrounding area (fishing, snorkeling, hiking, zip lining, shopping). The oceanside massage is a must! Weather We visited in September, temps were in the low to mid 80s with a little rain every day but never lasted long. Perfect weather! Highly recommend Kanu island, we will be back again!

Highly Recommend

Our family recently took our summer vacation to Kanu Private Island and it lived up to our expectations and then some! We had a great time spending a week on the beautiful tropical island. From the time we stepped foot on the island all of the staff was very nice and helpful and we enjoyed their company the whole time. The amenities were very nice including the pool, bar/ dining area, private suites, beach, dock, and so much more. We enjoyed fantastic food cooked by the staff for every meal and trips out fishing and snorkeling with our own boat captain. If you are looking for an experience where you get to spend an entire week on your own private island, I would Highly Recommend looking at Kanu Private Island!
