The Villa on Dunbar Rock is not just a resort. It’s a dream vacation destination in and of itself. Visits to Dunbar Rock are unique from start to finish. As you can well imagine from viewing the picture above, the “getting-here” is your first introduction to what sets it apart, literally and figuratively.
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 PADI/SSI dive center just off the docks.
A set of wide stairs leads to a roomy terrace then on to the 2 main levels which house the rooms and common areas.
There are 8 rooms at the Villa, and two new Suites for a total of 10 units.
The 2 Standard Ocean View Rooms have one queen bed and one twin bed. There are also 6 Deluxe Ocean View rooms, all with two queen beds.
The Presidential Suite includes one King Bed, a separate sitting area, cable television, section with office furnishings, refrigerator, and a hot tub on the balcony. It is located on the level just below the main level.
The Penthouse Suite features two Queen beds, a glass enclosed living room, reception area with wet bar, refrigerator and cable television. It is (naturally!) on the top level.
All rooms have an ocean view, private balcony and digital safe. They are fully air-conditioned, though ceiling fans are available for those who prefer the fresh sea air.
Part of a volcanic and coral mountain range called The Bonacca Ridge, Guanaja marks the beginning of the second largest barrier reef in the world – the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef.
Guanaja’s fringing reef is a protected marine reserve making it an ideal spot for diving and snorkeling nearly anywhere offshore the mainland. It offers a mixture of pinnacles, vertical walls, lava tunnels and wrecks including the nearby Jado Trader, one of the most sought-after wrecks in the Caribbean. It also boasts nearly every species of coral growing in the Caribbean Sea, including several species of rare black coral, and sponges of all colors, shapes and sizes.
The diving in Guanaja shares many similarities to the sister islands, however being a remote location with few visitors, the reefs have remained virtually untouched by diver impact. There is also no competition for dives sites, as with only 2 dive operators and 45+ sites, you really will feel like you have the reef system all to your own.
Dive sites ring the island, meaning finding a location to dive in the lee of the wind is nearly always possible. In addition to the sites surrounding Guanaja, the innumerable cays that encircle the island form an ideal habitat for reef creatures and virtually every known crustacean. From tiny black spotted nudibranchs to cave dwelling Caribbean lobster, the reef systems is ideal for macro and close up photography. There are also more than 300 identified fish species in Bay Island waters. Divers frequently see Angelfish, Hamlets, Butterfly fish, Creole Wrasse, Grouper, Jackfish, Moray eels, Octopus, Parrotfish, Nurse sharks and more.
Nearly all of the sites offer lively shallow terraces that are perfect for snorkelers. Separate snorkel tours are offered to ensure you are taken to a site that is guaranteed for good snorkeling. When joining the divers, they also do their best to accommodate sites that work well for divers and snorkelers.
Visibility is generally around 100 feet/30 meters. Currents are mostly mild to non-existent.
