Utopia Village is a Utila resort that is an “off the beaten path vacation retreat”. It is remote, it is casual, it is friendly, it is beautifully designed and it is adventure set in unchoreographed natural surroundings. The Utila beach resort hotel is built on the edge of an abundant reef, a twenty-minute boat ride from the nearest and only town on the tiny island of Utila, off the coast of Honduras. There are no roads at our Utila dive resort, no fast food joints and no nightclubs. The nightlife includes the grass thatched beach bar with sounds of the ocean rolling in, footsteps crackling down the coral paths and the rustle of palm leaves in the breeze.
On Utila Island, the clear leader in dedicated dive vacations is the little over-water lodge located down a Victorian street lined with citrus and mango and garnished with spicy English accents. Utila Lodge offers the friendliest and most casual of vacation experiences. Utila Lodge is base station to WSORC (Whale Shark and Oceanic Research Center) and guests often participate in projects involving the study and preservation of the “biggest fish in the sea.”
