Xbalanque Resort, Roatan, Honduras

Xbalanque is pronounced: X-bal-ank

Riding down the winded road of Tamarind Drive, I pull up to this magnificent looking hacienda styled tropical resort. Greeted with a warm friendly smile from the sweetest concierge ever, Genesis, I knew I was in the right place. Nestled in between West Bay and West End, Xbalanque is a modern fusion of untamed luxury.

Xbalanque is surrounded by lush natural jungle providing guests with a private beach and pier, it is pure tranquility at its best. If you don’t believe me, the sunset says it all.


The modern decor and high-end furnishings provide pampering accommodations to all guest. The interior designer and owner, Patsy Bracy, sets the bar for boutique luxury on the island of Roatan, especially in the Caribbean.

The resort comes complete with an on-site restaurant and bar. The bartenders, Clinton and Randy, along with Chef Josue helps make your stay much more remarkable by serving up the best dishes and drinks on the island. They also have a second floor lounge allowing splendid sunset views.

The rooms are magnificently designed with tasteful, modern decor. They offer a cooking and seating area with tall ceilings, one of the most comfortable beds you could sleep on and a spacious shower.

This is a quiet gem on the island of Roatan. It offers great snorkeling, paddle boarding and kayaking for guest who love adventure. If you want the liveliness of the other major resorts, it is walking distance on the beach. The resort is family friendly, and very exceptional. The staff greet you by first name and always have amazing stories to tell. Staying at Xbalanque you will find that it is unparalleled to anything you have ever experienced and you will fall in love, literally.
