This structure houses the lobby, reception area, gift shop, restaurant, library, and bar.

Regenerative Impact

At Hamanasi, they are actively taking steps to reduce their negative impact on the environment and actively contribute to its regeneration. Their efforts also extend to raising awareness and fostering a deeper appreciation for both nature and diverse cultures. Their overarching objective is to revitalize not only the environment but also the communities intertwined with it. Their aspiration is to bring about improvement rather than mere sustainability.

Built within nature, Hamanasi recognizes the importance of maintaing habitat for flora and fauna. Part of its efforts include conserving its littoral forest, one of the most threatened types of forests in the world as they are cleared for coastal development, and reforesting a previously denuded property it acquired.
All Hamanasi structures are sustainably designed, from the ample use of windows to maximize natural light, to the ceiling fans and screened windows that provide an alternative to air conditioning. The resort also uses earth-friendly soaps, shampoos, and cleaning supplies, which are purchased in bulk to reduce their carbon footprint from transport.
At Hamanasi, all tours are guided by Belize Tourism Board-certified guides who take the time to inform guests about all flora and fauna that they will encounter on their tours – on land and under water. Guests also learn how to minimize their impact during tours, such as following maintained trails, not touching coral or other animals, and not taking anything that they may see during their excursion.
Over 97% of Hamanasi’s employees are Belizean and from the surrounding communities, with a 41:59 women-to-men ratio. Moreover, the resort aims to groom its managers and supervisors from within.
