Hamanasi Adventure & Dive Resort

Hamanasi is a secluded, casually elegant eco-resort located along the coastline near Hopkins Village. Nestled between the lush Maya Mountains and the turquoise Caribbean Sea, Hamanasi is a special place from which you can explore the best of Belize on and offshore. Hamanasi sits on a long stretch of the finest beach in Belize. Getting to Hamanasi is easy. You hop a quick flight to the Dangriga Airstrip and from there the resort will transfer you to Hamanasi, approximately 40 minutes. Settle in and unpack. Hamanasi offers such a wide array for fun adventures, you never need to go anywhere else.

The resort features 23 spacious tree houses, beach front rooms and suites with private porches and gorgeous hardwood furnishings. All rooms are spacious and comfortable with a casually elegant décor of Central American folk art.  There are 9 intimate, private treehouses raised on stilts and set in the coast forest surrounded by orchids and birdlife. There are also two honeymoon suites, 8 beachfront rooms and 2 beachfront deluxe rooms boasting breathtaking ocean views. Each room offers king or double queen beds with comfortable mattresses, plush linens, air conditioning, ceiling fans, private porches and colorful Mexican tiled bathrooms. The Great House, reminiscent of a plantation home, is home to the lobby, reception, gift shop, restaurant, bar and wrap-around veranda. You will dine indoors or on the veranda overlooking the Caribbean Sea.  There’s a cozy bar with comfortable furnishings ideal for relaxing. The freshwater infinity pool is a big draw plus there’s plenty of beach chairs and hammocks to chill.

There’s a boatload of activities to join at Hamanasi. The on-site 5-star PADI Dive & Snorkeling Center has certified staff to take you to all the best sites in Belize. You’ll be able to explore miles of the pristine Southern Barrier Reef, plus Glover’s Reef Atoll, Turneffe Islands Atoll, the Elbow, Lighthouse Reef Atoll, the Blue Hole, Half Moon Caye and more. Seasonally, you may hang with the largest, perhaps most awesome, fish of the sea – whale sharks (March – June)!  When you head in from the reef, there’s plenty of rainforest adventures awaiting. Step back in time and discover ancient magical Mayan archeological sites and caves. Listen to a cacophony of birds as you hike in the Jaguar Preserve. Hop in a jungle river canoe and drift past crocodiles and egrets while spotting iguanas lounging in trees. Explore mysterious caves hidden in the rainforest on foot and tubing. There’s also waterfall hikes & rappelling, jungle zip lining, horseback riding, cooking classes and even a chocolate tour. You can experience this and more at Hamanasi!
