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. Settle in and unpack. Hamanasi offers such a wide array for fun adventures, you never need to go anywhere else.

You’ll be able to kick back and soak in the ocean air on the veranda of our Great House, reminiscent of a plantation home, which is the heart of all activity. Inside you will find the lobby, reception, gift shop, restaurant, library and bar. For incredible panoramic views of the Caribbean and the Maya Mountains climb to the Lookout on top of the Great House — perfect for sunrise and sunset.

The Great House, reminiscent of a plantation home, is home to the lobby, reception, gift shop, restaurant, bar and wrap-around veranda. Lounge beside our freshwater infinity pool with a tropical cocktail and  a good book.  Beach chairs, hammocks and beach towels are provided.  If you prefer to take your swim in the warm Caribbean waters, it’s just steps away. At Hamanasi, you can be as active or chill as you want to be.

Deluxe Treehouse Rooms

Tucked in our coastal forest are Hamanasi's most spacious accommodations, Deluxe Treehouses. Follow orchid-lined paths under the shade of the littoral forest to arrive at your Deluxe Treehouse. Each enjoys a spacious living room decorated with handcrafted Belizean furniture, most made onsite by Hamanasi's carpenters, and local art all enveloped in a cool tropical pantone. The sofa may be turned into a double bed.

The en suite bar area has a dining table, stocked mini bar, coffee maker and bottled water. Tiles adorn the commodious bathroom, which boasts double vanities, plenty of storage space and his and her robes. You will enjoy views of tropical vegetation through the expansive window in the huge shower with twin shower heads. In a separate room is a draped king bed with an organic Savvy Rest mattress. Unwind on lounge chairs or in the jacuzzi on the wrap-around veranda serenaded by tropical birds.

Belize Treehouse Rooms

As an eco resort instead of cutting trees when we needed to add rooms we built amidst the trees! The most popular rooms, these spacious, individual Treehouses provide the utmost in privacy. Each is raised approximately 12-feet and is surrounded by a variety of trees, orchids and birds.

You will slumber in a stately four poster king bed made of Belizean hardwood or two mahogany queen beds, each with a sustainable organic Savvy Rest mattress. Every treehouse has air conditioning, louvered windows, ceiling fans and full size sofa that can be made into a double bed.  The spacious bathroom has double vanities and a shower with a 5-foot window and skylight. Relax on your porch in comfortable mixed hardwood chairs or a hammock.  The primary attraction of the treehouse is privacy. Each is freestanding without a room above, below or directly beside it.  Because of the surrounding trees you may see up close a plethora of birds.

Beachfront Plus

Traveling with kids? A group of friends on vacation? The Belize beachfront plus rooms are an ideal solution for those wishing to share a room. Enter to a room with a mahogany king bed and a table and chairs. In the adjacent room there are two twin beds. You’ll slumber peacefully on the organic Savvy Rest mattresses. Both rooms have their own entrance to the shared bathroom.

Beachfront Suites

Love birds, take note! The two beachfront suites are the perfect retreat to kindle your romance! The large bedroom has a romantically draped four-poster king bed made of Belizean barba jolote wood and an organic Savvy Rest mattress. The room opens into a comfortable sitting area with a sofa and chairs.

Belize Beachfront Rooms

With magnificent sea views and plenty of space you'll love our Belizean Beachfront Rooms. These rooms have either a king bed or two queen beds handcrafted of Belizean hardwoods, each with an extremely comfortable organic Savvy Rest mattress. Additionally, all rooms have a sofa that can be made into a full size bed. You can enjoy the refreshing Caribbean cross breeze through louvered windows, or revert to using the ceiling fan or AC.

This is the perfect scenario for friends and family members with different interests. Don't worry, you can schedule your adventures after you arrive at Hamanasi. 
REEF ADVENTURES

Belize boasts the longest stretch of coral in the western hemisphere and has 3 of the 4 Caribbean atolls. Whether you are a diver, snorkeler or angler, there is a part of the Belize Barrier Reef that will appeal to you – and Hamanasi can take you there! 

Barrier Reef Diving & Snorkeling

Hamanasi dive trips explore areas in and around the South Water Caye Marine Reserve, the largest marine reserve in Belize, spanning from just north of Tobacco Caye to a cut five miles south of South Water Caye called Grand Channel. The trip out to the Southern Barrier Reef is ten miles and it takes 30-40 minutes to get to the first dive site. This pristine southern section of the reef sees few divers and is typically a wall dive that is interspersed with sand channels and spur and groove sections. With literally dozens of dive sites, Hamanasi divemasters will show you a wide variety of this area.

Lighthouse Reef & Blue Hole

Lighthouse Reef Atoll is known worldwide in scuba diving circles for its spectacular diving, but it is most famous for a site called the Great Blue Hole. Originally a cave whose roof collapsed thousands of years ago and filled with water, the Blue Hole forms a perfect 1,000 foot/300m diameter circle on the surface then plunges vertically to a depth of 412 feet/126m. At 130 feet/40m depth inside the hole are the world's largest underwater dripstones, or stalactites, ever found. Also at Lighthouse Reef, you will find Half Moon Caye, a National Park managed by the Belize Audubon Society. Half Moon Caye is home to a bird colony of rare Red Footed Boobies that can be observed up close by visitors. This Atoll is the furthest out of the Belize Atolls, approximately 66 miles from Hamanasi.

RAINFOREST ADVENTURES

Step back in time and discover ancient Mayan archeological sites. Listen to a cacophony of birds as you hike in the Jaguar Preserve. Drift past crocodiles and egrets while spotting iguanas lounging in trees. Explore mysterious caves hidden in the rainforest. With Hamanasi, experience these inland adventures and so much more.  

Mayflower Jungle Hike & Waterfalls

Just a short drive from Hamanasi is a thrilling hike through the rainforest leading to a waterfall. The Antelope Falls hike is a very rigorous, steep trek to a nearly 1000-foot waterfall with an incredible top view all the way to the Caribbean Sea. Further up the falls is a dipping pool perfect for cooling off.

Jungle River Tour

From its origin deep within the Maya Mountains the Sittee River snakes its way to the sea with its mouth just south of Hopkins. Our trip starts near the Creole village of Sittee River and slowly heads towards the ocean. You will have fun spotting green and orange iguanas lounging in trees and maybe a crocodile resting at the water's edge. Parrots, toucans, motmots, herons and egrets often can be seen and heard! We have seen stingrays, manatee and crocodiles far upriver. As we get closer to the sea the dense jungle gives way to large mangrove forests.

Cave & Jungle Adventure

Attention cave lovers, hikers and birders! You won't want to miss this adventure! Traveling past citrus orchards on the gorgeous Hummingbird Highway you will reach St. Herman's Blue Hole National Park. This park is in one of Belize's oldest jungles dense with large, hardwood trees. The main feature of this adventure is St. Herman's Cave, one of three sacred caves at the park filled with stalactites, stalagmites and ancient Mayan pottery shards.

Cockscomb Reserve

Near Hamanasi is the world's only jaguar preserve, the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary. Ringed on three sides by the Maya Mountains and towering Victoria's Peak, the Basin's 128,000 acres is also home to jaguarundi, margays, ocelots, pumas, deer, howler monkeys and tapirs.

Mayan History Tour

If you ever wanted to learn a lot about the Maya here is your chance! After a scenic drive along the Hummingbird and Western Highways, we first explore the Maya archeological site of Xunantunich (pronounced Shu-nan-tu-nitch), or Stone Maiden. Located near the Guatemalan border, a hand-cranked ferry will take you across the Mopan River to this major ceremonial center situated high on a limestone ridge with a panoramic view of the Cayo District. The main pyramid, El Castillo, has detailed stucco friezes and steps that you can climb all they way to the top.
