Sophisticated beachfront getaway, with plenty of friendly Belizean charm
Balancing modern conveniences with charming local touches, Hopkins Bay Resort nails the “family getaway” vibe. There’s something for everyone here, and the activities and amenities promote a warm sense of friendliness and community. You’ll enjoy authentic Caribbean relaxation and hospitality on property. You have easy access world-class activities and sightseeing, all in close proximity.
As you arrive to Garifuna fishing village via commuter flight, road transfer, or rental car--you’ll feel a sense of relaxation that’s as refreshing as the ocean breezes. Once on property, you’ll notice the variety of complimentary, community-promoting activities, like impromptu beach games, volleyball, and bike and kayak rentals. You’ll stay in a house for the ultimate in homey vibes. Rooms are expansive and inspiring, featuring locally made wood furniture as well as air conditioning and beautiful sea views.
A restful, comfortable home base amidst bountiful outdoor activity options.
Immerse yourself in the rich local culture through resort-sponsored activities like Garifuna drumming lessons, beach bonfires, and dance demonstrations. Seek out either activity or tranquility while you’re on property: the choice is yours. (Organized activities for children and families--including tug-of-war, Bocce, and Limbo--happen daily.) From zip-lining to rappelling to exploring ancient Mayan ruins--there’s no shortage of memorable moments to enjoy.
All food available on-property is tasty, Garifuna-inspired, and produced in the village and surrounding farms. Fresh fish, tropical fruits, and Caribbean flavors are the focus at the beach side restaurant, The Rhum Shack. (The signature menu item — called Rhum Shack’s World’s Best Pina Colada — is exactly what its name promises. Don’t just take their word for it, try one… or two.)
