As a Villa built on a rock off the coast of Guanaja, which is off the coast of Honduras, social distancing comes naturally. Avoiding crowds comes easy as well, since we have only nine rooms and 2 suites on property. All of the rooms and suites have a separate outdoor entrance, and more than ample air circulation options with air-conditioning, ceiling fans and windows. Most of our public spaces are also open to the fresh air. During the months we have been closed, we have studied the many operational protocols suggested for the "new normal" for the hospitality industry, and have trained our staff to ensure that they deliver a safe experience for our guests and themselves. The Global Safety Stamp of Approval on the right signifies we have adopted the health and hygiene global standardized protocols outlined by the World Travel & Tourism Council.

Enjoy uncrowded diving on some of the most virgin reefs in the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System.  

With few dive operators on the island, guests always get their pick of the best, rarely visited dive sites. Concierge dive services guarantee a relaxed experience on each of the three daily dives. 

The friendly and professional staff pride themselves on not just being your guides but your dive concierges, so please plan on leaving the lifting, hauling and packing of all the diving gear to them!

The team will carry your gear onto the boats, prepare it for the dive, change it over for the second dive, and rinse and store it at the end of the day. Your only task while on board is to do your buddy checks, then sit back and enjoy the ride.
