Green Resort of the Year: Hamanasi Adventure and Dive Resort, Belize Being green is one thing. But channeling green practices into the entire guest experience is quite another. But that’s exactly what the team at the Hamanasi Adventure and Dive Resort in Belize have achieved. The Green Globe-certified beachfront resort has an aggressive eco-friendly program covering everything from energy-efficient lighting to green purchasing policies to sustainable construction and, most recently, eliminating the use of single-use plastics. But that’s just the beginning. Hamanasi has its own “Green Team” at the resort, encourages its guests on how they, too, can be greener, and the resort’s signature programming is all about experiencing, protecting and understanding the natural world. It’s a hotel philosophy we hope turns into a movement.
