I initially discovered Hamanasi right here on Trip Advisor and was very impressed by the wonderful reviews. It's hard to imagine how a resort can get it all so right, but Hamanasi does! We booked the romance package for 7 days, 6 nights, 5 excursions and stayed in a treehouse. The accommodations are beautiful with not a detail left behind. I've never slept so good in my life! The staff treat you like family (maybe even better than family) from the moment you arrive (actually at the airport) to the moment you depart. In our case the love continued even after we left and went on to a second week at another place which did not meet our expectations. The staff helped us get back to Hopkins, found us a place to stay as they were at full capacity, and welcomed us back with open arms for another 1/2 week of diving, fabulous food, and great people.
My husband and I are both divers which was our main motivation of this trip. The dive crew are fun, professional, and experts in what they do. We enjoyed 7 days of diving and were very glad to take part in the Ultimate Dive which is one of their special excursions.
The meals are served in the restaurant at the main house and every server takes the time to chat with you, know a little about you, and share their own personal stories. Breakfast is a great buffet, and lunch and dinner are both table service. We enjoyed every dish and had great variety as they have a rotation of the menu. Dinner is a 3 course meal with an appetizer, entree, and dessert. The food is delicious and well presented.
This is not a resort that is constantly trying to make money off of you. We were fortunate to meet the owners who were at the resort during our stay and the amazing service based culture starts with them. If there is any doubt in your mind, put it away and book this resort immediately. We are already discussing our plans to return.
