About the Property

Xbalanque is a serene luxurious retreat dedicated to revitalizing your spirit and soul. Xbalanque is located on Roatan's north shore beach between West Bay, one of the top ten beaches in the world and West End village, hubbub for shopping and dining. Whether you are looking to bask in the sun and relax or to shop and enjoy vibrant nightlife, Xbalanque is only a stroll away.
Xbalanque offers the elegance of a private home with the conveniences of a luxury resort. Xbalanque is new construction, just completed with all the finest materials used. It is solid concrete construction with vast expanses of glass for the most modern appeal. I am an Interior Designer and builder and took great care in selecting unique materials and using local woods and craftsmen. Stone sinks , tiles and furnishings were brought from Indonesia to create a unique resort.

Xbalanque has three levels.
The first level offers a comfortable lounge area, a library/conference room and an exercise room all connecting to a private dining area beside an infinity pool. A treadmiil, elliptical and free weights are provided to give you a great workout while enjoying the ocean views. Yoga mats are supplied for those who want to exercise on the rooftop or the beach. Xbalanque is a great place for a fitness retreat.
Each unit is immaculately design with a sleek modern interior and private deck. There are four unique units.The space is designed for open living with a full kitchen equipped with a Jennair cooktop, stainless steel appliances and granite tops. The cabinets are solid mahogany built by a local craftsman. A pantry with a washer/dryer is provided for your convenience. The living area is seperated from the kitchen by an island which also has a wine cooler. Large expanses of glass give optimum views and light. Large sectional seating offers comfort while viewing TV or a beautiful sunset.

The private deck faces West for fantastic sunsets. Deck dining and lounging furniture offers a great place to relax.
Two bedrooms have king beds with custom built cabinets for storage. Each bedroom has a private bath. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub and a tiled walk in shower. Travertine tile is used for the floors and walls. Luxurious towels and bath amenities are provided.
The gourmet restaurant by the main poolside features a kitchen that gently awakens guests with smells of fresh coffee and baked goods for breakfast and offers high quality seafood and local cuisine for dinner upon request. Many fruits and vegetables are grown on our own property.

Xbalanque provides guests kayaks to explore the reef in front or to snorkel the beautiful waters. Snorkel gear is provided and private boat trips are available for island exploring. The private pier is an excellent place to fish or just to relax. It has a covered palapa roof and is a great place to lie in a hammock. We can offer dive excursions, fishing excursions or any activity you desire. We cater to help with private parties for birthdays, weddings or any occasion or for corporate retreats.
Xbalanque offers you the chance to relax and revitalize in style. Come and experience its magic. You deserve it!

Owner info

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 Roatan Municipality, Honduras:
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 Hotel:
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!
