Utila is one of the smaller Bay Islands of Honduras but is ranked number two in the world when it comes to diving and becoming PADI certified – which is no easy feat to attain! And there are many positive things about this, there are diving resorts in Utila, I stayed at Laguna Beach Resort Utila
Utila Honduras Dive Resorts
Utila is also known for a backpacker hang-out and budget traveling, which is only marginally true! That is until you visit the private five-star Laguna Beach Resort with the only beach of Utila. And one of the best family hotels in the area.
Laguna Beach Resort Utila
The name Laguna actually means Lagoon which is what separates the resort from the main island of Utila. The separation is only a two-minute boat ride, but it definitely makes a difference and gives the place seclusion and total safety. And for a mom, this was a huge deal for me. I literally let my seven-year-old run around without worrying about safety issues.
The resort is split up into 16 private cabins, there is even one that is a 2 bedroom family cabin, that is above water with private porches looking out onto the lagoon and the Caribbean Sea.
In the center is a beautiful large Whale Shark style pool area and heading towards the restaurant is a white sanded beach with lounge chairs where the water is as calm as its surroundings. We spent a lot of time in it having fun.
My tour was conducted by the assistant manager who is fun and super attentive. By the time we arrived at the restaurant the kitchen staff had our lunch ready for us and the girl bartender was whipping up some tropical drink creations that went perfectly with the meal.
The resort is known for their great diving packages with plenty of activities to keep non-divers having plenty of fun.
But the owners of Laguna Beach Lodge also offer a first-class dive package on their Aggressor Utila Yacht. Which is part of the chain of the Aggressor Fleet that specializes in liveaboard diving in the top diving locations of the world.
Talk about diving surrounded by total luxury. The yacht is huge, it can easily accommodate 14 passengers with many private rooms and master suites to ensure privacy for everyone.
The chefs onboard were super nice and pride themselves in creating whatever food you desire on top of having a set menu. This is perfect if you are traveling with picky eaters or if you have any special dietary needs.
You can enjoy a stay at Laguna Beach Lodge before heading out on your multi-day diving adventure. In fact, I highly recommend it if you want the full experience.
Honduras is a wonderful place to visit and is a great place to rent or sell a timeshare. With many things to do in Honduras and some of the finest resorts in the world can be found in unusual places, and timeshares offer more space and value for your money.
Would you experience what this resort has to offer during your visit to Roatan? I would definitely repeat the experience.
