Hamanasi Restaurant

The resort makes every effort to find high-quality ingredients to create international favorites prepared with a Caribbean twist. Hamanasi believes in serving fresh, local fare prepared in a healthy, balanced and flavorful way. Traditional ingredients such as cocoa, cassava and yampie are staples in the kitchen’s “Fresh Meets Fusion” culinary philosophy. All meals are carefully prepared with your individual needs in mind.

Each morning, enjoy a continental breakfast of assorted fresh breads, eggs, fruit, yogurt, and granola along with fresh-squeezed juices, coffee and hot tea. If you’re seeking a heartier meal, try the filling breakfast burritos, Belizean omelets, stuffed jacks or French Toast. For lunch, sit down for a light meal of sandwich wraps, barbecue favorites, seafood, or quesadillas. At dinner, enjoy a fine dining experience featuring a rotational menu, ensuring a wide selection of choices throughout your stay. Also ask about special meal arrangements for romantic beach dining, poolside or even on your private veranda.

Among other options, the menu features seafood, and a variety of diverse flavors, including influences from both Caribbean and Fusion cuisines. As far as the style of dining and food goes, the setting is informal. The option to eat here is on the table during breakfast, lunch, and dinner, allowing you and your group to sample their cuisine at almost any meal.


This restaurant is on the premises of Hamanasi Adventure and Dive Resort, which is found in Hopkins, a village in Stann Creek District; it's nine miles (15 kilometers) to the south-southwest of Dangriga.

Set just outside Hopkins Village, the restaurant is located in Hamanasi’s Great House, steps away from the Caribbean Sea. The resort property spans nearly 30 acres of land along 900 feet of stunning beach and littoral forest. Getting here is easiest is you fly into Dangriga Airstrip on Mayan Air or Tropic Air. The staff can pick you up and drive you approximately 40 minutes to the resort. If you would rather drive from Belize International Airport, it will take approximately three hours. Hopkins Village is a traditional fishing village inhabited by fewer than 3,000 Garinagu (often referred to as Garifuna), Mayans and other ethnicities. This is a friendly community with a rich culture of drumming, dancing, music and their own language. Hamanasi is a central location for discovering the Best of Belize, whether you want to hike, dive, cave, snorkel, zip line or fish.

Something else to try besides the food this neighborhood is Sittee Marina Beach, the closest beach, where you can give your feet a well-deserved break.
