Hamanasi wins Eco Excellence Award
NCW Magazine Honors
HOPKINS VILLAGE, Belize — Hamanasi Adventure and Dive Resort, has been named winner of the Eco Excellence Award in Eco Hotels by NCW (Natural Child World) Magazine. Hamanasi competed in the travel category. http://www.ecoexcellenceawards.com/#!2016-winners/spryv
Regarded as one of the biggest Media Awards, the Eco-Excellence are the only ones to recognize excellence in the world of sustainability and social responsibility. NCW Magazine is a project of Green Spot Media which supports the desire to inspire positive change in a new generation of parents that today are facing educational but also ecological and social challenges. The idea is to provide modern parents with a platform to learn, exchange and reflect over alternative choices and alternative ways to raise their children. This year’s contest attracted over 300,000 votes for reader’s favorite brands and products.
This honor from family-centric NCW Magazine is meaningful to Hamanasi Resort because it is a family owned and operated destination which values sustainability practices in all areas of operation. “We are committed to conservation and sustainability at Hamanasi,’ says Dana Krauskopf, co-owner; “everything from green building practices to organic gardening to community outreach activities; everything we do is with an eye towards building a healthy future for our greater Hamanasi family and the planet.”
Hamanasi has been committed to sustainability since day one. The buildings were designed allowing for plenty of natural light and airflow. It built around existing vegetation as much as possible and replaced any trees that may have been disturbed. Throughout the resort one can find eco friendly products and practices being used – from natural cleansers to Energy Star and WaterSense rated appliances to composting. The Green Team led by Hamanasi’s Sustainability Manager furthers this through on-site and community education. Both Green Globe and Sustainable Travel International have certified Hamanasi.
Families love visiting Hamanasi Adventure and Dive Resort. Kids of all ages find ocean and jungle adventures to enjoy. Couples love celebrating anniversaries and other special occasions in the romantic setting of the treehouse suites. Scuba divers find new sites to explore daily and everyone loves getting to know the local staff, learning about life in Belize and bringing home tons of new memories – and maybe a few grains of sand in their luggage!
