by Larry Waight

Belize has so much to offer anyone who comes to its shores. If you are wanting to visit this hidden treasure of Central America, you might be looking for a place to stay. To experience all Belize has to offer, plan to book your stay at the Hamanasi Adventure and Dive Resort. Located on the southern coast of Belize between the Maya Mountains and the Caribbean Sea, Hamanasi has positioned itself as a world-class luxury eco-resort. A large part of the resort’s property is covered in forest, and with the resort itself situated on the Caribbean Sea, you will feel as though you have become one with nature.

A Little Background on Hamanasi

Hamanasi, which is the Garifuna word meaning “almond,” is among the top luxury resorts in Belize. This breathtaking resort is a passion project by a couple, Dana and Dave, who wanted to run a seaside hotel and make their dream come true. In the 2021 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards, Hamanasi was awarded the prestigious honor of being named one of the top 25 hotels in the world. The resort has consistently ranked in TripAdvisor’s Hall of Fame since 2011 and remains a favorite of Condé Nast Traveler’s readers. Hamanasi is proud of its reputation as a leading resort in the sustainable tourism industry.

Hamanasi takes its commitment to environmental sustainability seriously. The resort’s owners and staff firmly believe that the future of Belize is in its eco-tourism, and they are committed to preserving it for future generations. In addition to environmental sustainability, Hamanasi considers its mission to be sustaining the local community too. Local drummers, dancers, and musicians frequently perform at the resort, and the resort encourages its guests to experience the local culture while visiting.

What Accommodations and Amenities Does Hamanasi Provide?

Hamanasi offers guests a variety of complementary and extra amenities, including continental breakfast, concierge service, top-notch housekeeping, a pool, beachside massages, yoga, babysitting service, and more. Bicycles, kayaks, and paddleboards are all free to borrow and use in the area around the resort.

Another highlight of Hamanasi is its dining amenities, which have outdoor seating and face the Caribbean Sea. The on-site Singanga restaurant serves fresh Belizean, the Caribbean, and international cuisine, with a particular emphasis on delicious seafood. The resort also promotes and supports local artists by offering local arts and crafts for sale in its gift shop. Perhaps Hamanasi’s most unique and popular attraction is the treehouse rooms, which are built on stilts among mangroves and other trees that grow by the ocean. These afford guests the unique opportunity to feel as though they’re sleeping in the jungle canopy with the ambiance of the waves lapping at the shore.

While sometimes you just want a vacation to relax on the beach, Hamanasi knows some people want more out of their travels. They want to go on an adventure, experiencing as much of their destination as they can. To facilitate this, Hamanasi offers several all-inclusive vacation packages to visitors.
