A boutique resort nestled between lush mountains and the warm inviting Caribbean Sea, Hamanasi is located in the south a short flight from Belize City.
Accommodation is in elegantly furnished tree-houses raised on stilts in the lush tropical gardens, or beachfront rooms with breathtaking ocean views. All feature air conditioning, an en suite bathroom and private porch. The heart of the property is the ‘Great House’, reminiscent of a plantation home, where the restaurant, bar, reception and gift shop are located. Other facilities include an infinity swimming pool, hammocks and a 19 kilometre stretch of beach on which to walk or relax. We recommend the ‘Reef & Rainforest’ package as the best value for money to enjoy diving, inland excursions and adventures.
There is much more than diving and snorkelling to be appreciated from this well-situated resort. Onshore excursions include Magical Mayan History Tour, Cockscomb Basin Wildlife & Jaguar Preserve, Mayflower Waterfall Hike, as well as opportunities for kayaking or canoeing on jungle-rivers. Alternatively go cycling or swim in the curved, freshwater, infinity pool, or simply stroll through the fishing village of Hopkins.
