Hamanasi Resort

Hopkins, Belize

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 both on- and offshore. A secluded, intimate boutique resort located on the beach south of Hopkins, Hamanasi sits on hundreds of feet of Caribbean Sea beachfront surrounded by tropical flora on the finest stretch of beach. It was voted the number 1 small hotel in Belize, and ranked in the “Top 25 Hotels In The World For Service” by Tripadvisor.

Hamanasi believes that thoughtful eco-tourism can make a positive impact on the environment and our community, and can preserve our little slice of paradise for the enjoyment and education of future generations.
