Resort Description

Converted from a private residence, Villa on Dunbar Rock is an intimate resort perched on a private cay and offering glorious views of Guanaja, the open ocean and nearby Cays. 

Located off the mainland island of Guanaja, this resort offers access to 50+ dive sites offering a diverse mix of vertical walls, pinnacles, lava tunnels and wrecks. The on-site dive center is one of only two active PADI-affiliated dive center on the island, so guests can explore the best, rarely-visited sites at their leisure.

Accommodation is split across four floors, with all rooms featuring air conditioning, private bathrooms, balconies and free WiFi. Those looking to lounge by the sea or pool will love the private white sand beach and elevated infinity pool. The Great Room offers a spacious seating area with comfy sofas and a flat screen TV, as well as an indoor dining area. For those seeking a bit of peace and quiet, there are plenty of relaxation areas to escape to, away from other guests. 

Receive three gourmet, locally-sourced meals per day as well as snacks. Some highlights include homemade breakfast tortillas and freshly-caught fish for dinner. Happy Hour runs every evening, just around sunset giving you the perfect opportunity to sip on the drink of the day (new flavour combinations offered each day) and watch as the horizon blends into shades of red, pink and orange.

Dive Center

Highlights

  • Explore the local protected marine reserve, part of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef
  • Diving in Guanaja offers a great deal of variety - pinnacles, walls, shallow coral reefs and wrecks
  • Experience a dive concierge service- leave the lifting, hauling and packing to the dive team
  • Guanaja’s fringing reef is an ideal spot snorkelers as well as divers
  • Boat rides vary from 20 – 30 minutes for dives along the south to up to 45 minutes for dives along the northern coast
  • There are 50+ named Guanaja dive sites, another six or so “kept secret” by the dive staff for their guests only

Description

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.
