Dining at Hamanasi

At Hamanasi tantalize your taste buds in our Singanga* restaurant. Choose to dine in casually elegant surroundings either under the magnificent trusses inside the Great House, on the veranda or al fresco on the deck. The many cultures of Belize inspire our cuisine. Every effort is made to source the finest local ingredients and have them delivered from the farm to your table, pure and fresh. Organic produce is used from our edible garden, which you are welcome to tour.

Discover Singanga*

Fresh meets fusion with our mouth-watering Belizean and international cuisine with a Caribbean twist. Seasonality and freshness inform our award-winning chefs with their modern-creative and traditional Belizean styles of cooking. If you are vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, lactose intolerant or have any other special dietary requests be sure to let us know, as we can cater to almost all needs. Our friendly staff will welcome you with warm smiles and professional service. *And just what does “Singanga” mean? It means dragonfly in Garifuna. Dragonflies can be seen year round at Hamanasi. But in September, October and November, they often can be seen feeding in the air in swarms. We hope you, too, will enjoy our delicious fare!
