A visit to Dunbar Rock offers a unique dive vacation experience from start to finish. As you can well imagine from viewing the picture on your left, the “getting-here” is your first introduction to what sets us apart, literally and figuratively.
Guests arriving at the Guanaja Airport are warmly greeted by our staff and escorted not to a parking lot and shuttle van, (no parking lot, no road!) but to a dock and transfer boat for the 10 minute boat transfer to the cay. Time to sit back and relax and enjoy the scenery.
Before you know it the Villa is in view, and thank your lucky stars you get to call this amazing place “HOME” for the next week. Once docked you can leave all your luggage behind for our delivery to your room, and focus your attention on winding your way up the stairs, or take the ramp-way around the circumference.
Perched on a cay with 360° views of Sandy Bay, Guanaja and surrounding cays, this unique resort blends beauty, serenity and something unidentifiably special in a laid-back, inviting atmosphere.
The 15,000 square foot property is spread across 4 floors. The ground level provides access to a private white sand beach for lounging, swimming and snorkeling and our PADI/SSI dive center just off the docks.
A set of wide stairs leads to a roomy terrace (perhaps for our future herb garden?) before passing a landing area with a central courtyard and our gift shop, then on to the 2 main levels which house our rooms and common areas.
There are any number of different areas to which one can “escape” if seeking isolation or congregate if feeling social.
Most of our guests tend to spend their time on the Villa’s fourth-level, which includes the Great Room with a flat screen TV/living area and inside dining room.
This is also the location of the infinity pool and pool bar, a favorite location for happy hour and to watch the sun set.
Not to be missed is a bit of pampering with our on-call masseur. Guests who are concerned that the invigorating stair climbing won’t be quite enough to work off the homemade breakfast tortilla’s will be pleased to hear that we now have a cardio room available with a treadmill and universal gym. Like all rooms at the Villa, it too has a view, overlooking the ocean.
