Hamanasi is a beautiful luxury resort located outside the town of Hopkins along the ocean shores of Belize. Sacrificing romance, cuisine, hospitality, or comfort is not a decision you’ll need to make in order to enjoy this fantastic adventure and dive resort in Belize. Hamanasi has combined all of these elements into one world-class destination that makes it the best choice in Belize resorts.
An Adventurous Arrival to your Belize Resort
Getting to this all inclusive adventure and dive resort is an adventure in itself due to its remote location. After you arrive in Belize, you have the privilege of jumping in a prop plane from Maya Island Air to bring you to Hamanasi. Flights run consistently throughout the day and Maya Island Air makes it simple and easy, all that’s left to do is enjoy the sights over Belize. After a scenic and Caribbean style bumpy drive through the countryside of Belize and the local town of Hopkins, you will arrive at your home away from home.
The Best Belize Resort’s Accommodations
There’s a variety of luxurious accommodations available at Hamanasi. Every room makes you feel a part of the wild nature of Belize and yet surrounded in luxury. It is tough to choose between the different rooms because each one is so unique and enticing.
The Treehouse style rooms are suspended above the jungle floor and nestled in right amongst the tree canopy. Nature will be all around you in every direction. The sights and sounds of the forest will have you intrigued as you relax in your hammock or the hot tub located right on your deck. Each Treehouse room is its own separate structure so you can enjoy a completely private experience, whether you’re inside or outside the treehouse.
Similar in style and comfort are the Beachfront Rooms. Here you will be near the ocean and just steps away from getting your feet in the sand. Each room makes you feel right at home as if you were living in a private vacation home. Catch a beautiful sunset from your front porch or take a nap in the hammock. However you choose to relax, you won’t want to leave your room.
Once you venture out on the main property, you’ll find a beautiful freshwater pool and The Great House in the center. Here you will find the reception area, a full bar, restaurant, library, and observation deck on the roof. The Great House is an extension of the beautiful room accommodations on a grander scale. Despite it being the resort’s main building of operations, you’ll feel like you’re visiting a friend’s home every time you walk in. One of the most breathtaking assets of The Great House is the observation deck. From here you can see for miles high above the tree tops, a perfect place to enjoy a cocktail with your loved one beside you. This spot is one of the reasons Hamanasi stands out over other Belize Resorts.
