The Lighthouse

Lighthouse Hotel - Click to enlargeLighthouse Hotel - Logo

Welcome to Utila. Come enjoy your stay on the island at one of its newest Hotels. Construction on The Lighthouse began in 2005 and the Hotel welcomed its first guests in April 2006. This two storied Hotel, with its wide wraparound balconies, stands over the waters of Eastern Harbor at the entrance to the Upper Lagoon. Its unique location offers guests gentle cooling by easterly trade winds and panoramic views of the harbor and of the western Caribbean Sea. On clear days, on the near horizon, guests can see the mountains of mainland Honduras and - most especially - Pico Bonito. The Lighthouse is undoubtedly one of Utila's most picturesque settings.

All rooms share the same amenities: A/C, ceiling fan, private bathroom with on-demand hot water shower, kitchenette with microwave and microwavable dishes, 14 cu. inch refrigerator, coffee maker, cable TV, internet access using the wireless hotspot on the premises,  standby emergency generator.

Five of Utila's top scuba dive shops are within a 5 minute walking distance - with Alton's Dive Shop being the closest. All other Dive Shops are no more than a 10-25 minute walking distance - with Coral View Dive Center being the farthest.

The Lighthouse is ideally situated near Utila's great bone fishing flats. The hotel's lower deck provides convenient pickup/drop off access for guided fishing and snorkeling day activities.

Welcome. Stay a while....
