Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Xbalanque has been a family project.
My background is Interior Design and I am a builder. My husbands also builds and designs and built all the stainless railings.My son designed and hand made the firepit on the rooftop. My daughter is in charge of marketing. Building on a tropical island has been my most rewarding endeavor. I have put my heart and soul into Xbalanque and hope to create a memorable place for a lot of people. My favorite thing to do in Roatan, aside from building, is to explore the island. The island is so beautiful and fun to explore. I also love to be on and in the water. The diving here is spectacular and with having our own boat, we can explore unspoiled sites.
The name Xbalanque comes from Mayan mythology. Xbalanque and Hunaphu were
sports twins. They conquered the underworld and became the sun and the moon. My son and daughter are twins and are very competitive runners. So Xbalanque has a very personal meaning for me.
Why the Owner Chose West Bay Beach: We first visited Roatan in 2000 and fell in love with the beauty and the wonderful people.Roatan is a diving mecca and we went there to dive. We chose Roatan because of it is off the beaten path and is not as commercialized as many other islands. It still has a unique island charm.
There are many activities and opportunities in Roatan. The tropical beauty and the wonderful climate was appealing to us.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast: Xbalanque guests can dine at our private restaurant and bar.
We can cater to your individual dietary needs and desires, birthday
or any celebration. We can serve you under the stars, on the rooftop deck or on the water. Our private chef serves fresh cuisine.
Being a boutique hotel we offer you personal service. You can have a massage, practice yoga, go on a fishing trip, have a pedicure/manicure, private jewelry show, exercise in our facility,
play golf, zipline, swim with dolphins, kayak and snorkel the reef.
Whatever your desire is we can make it happen.
