COVID-19 Update

The Belize International Airport reopened on October 1 and Hamanasi on October 30, 2020, after being closed since March due to COVID-19.  This is a big step for the country and the many people who rely upon tourism for income.  It also recognizes the great strides made by the Government of Belize and the tourism sector to ensure travelers, employees and communities are safe.

We do recognize that cases of COVID-19 are still increasing worldwide with devastating consequences.  Our team shares the deepest concern for those affected either directly or indirectly by the ongoing threat of COVID-19. We hope that you and your family are safe and well.  News of vaccines makes us hopeful.  When you are ready to travel again, everyone at Hamanasi will do our upmost to ensure your safety and health and to provide a much needed respite.

At Hamanasi, we provide authentic connections to nature, starting with our design. As a boutique hotel, we practice social distancing naturally with just 30 rooms on a large property. Our many private treehouses are spaced out within the coastal forest and our beachfront rooms all have separate outdoor entrances. Most of our public spaces are open to fresh air and warm Caribbean breezes. Our first priority, as it has always been, is the continued wellness and safety of our guests and employees. Since reopening we are taking a number of additional health and safety measures including mask wearing, enhanced cleaning, social distancing and more.  We abide by the Belize Government’s guidelines and COVID-19 protocols.

The Government of Belize has implemented new procedures for travel in Belize.
