When you want to feel like you’ve escaped from the world, this is where you go. With rooms overlooking both the ocean and barrier reef and rooms facing the rainforest, you can find your little slice of heaven on earth no matter where your room is.
Best way to get there
The best & fastest way to get there is by plane. Typically you will fly into Belize City. From there, you would take a Tropic Air or Maya Airlines flight to Dangriga which is about a 15 minute flight. Once you’ve landed your Hamanasi shuttle will be waiting on you to take you on about a 40 minute drive to the resort. Honestly, while you’re looking out at the ocean, homes, art and learning about the history of the area, the time flies.
Personally, I felt extremely safe on the property and in Belize as a whole. In the states were often given a certain narrative about other countries. My suggestion is to visit the places you’ve always dreamed of and make your own opinions.
I can only image the gorgeous smiles of the friendly staff at Hamanasi because they always had a mask on. They were very diligent about their role in your safety here and it shows. You are able to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before entering the main lodge that has the bar, check-in office, restaurant & small shop. Masks and hand sanitizer are placed throughout the property so you’re always prepared.
Hamanasi offers testing on site for $75 USD/person. The process to organize my testing, get tested and get my results may have been the absolute easiest it’s been for me since the mandate was put in place in January 2021. It truly was seamless, quick, efficient and stress free.
The restaurant is thoroughly cleaned. I never even saw a leaf miss placed on the balcony. Each table is sanitized and cleaned between each party and they were properly spaced for social distancing as well.
I regularly saw staff members cleaning the grounds of the property as well. Hamanasi as a whole was emaculate.
