I’ve been fortunate to travel a number of places around the world and Utopia Village is by far the best! The owners care of detail made the stay over the top. The diving masters were incredible as was the sites they took us to! I’ve gone diving at eight places in the Caribbean and this was the most scenic. Can’t... More

Best vacation ever. Pros / favorite things about Utopia Village: - The owners, Paul and Crisna, are gracious, humble and caring; I appreciate what they’ve brought to Utila, and made us feel special to be a part of it. - They’ve assembled the top team in Utila to make Utopia Village the dream getaway - valet diving is an indulgence...

Thank you so much for your kind review. We truly appreciate it. The first line "Best vacation ever" made us smile as we thought of Hunter and Stephanie doing their dance on the dive staging area dock :-) Your group was one of the first large groups we hosted last year after just buying the resort.

This is the third resort in the Bay Islands that I have visited with my scuba buddies, and the nicest. It may be the only "dive resort" that non divers would really enjoy, at least of the ones I have visited. Utopia Village is on the west end of Utila Island in the Bay Islands of Honduras. It's very isolated... More

We have always tried to give potential guests an accurate and realistic sense of what our resort is like (on our website and Facebook page). But as a potential guests, nothing is better than hearing from other guests that have already visited. That is why we so appreciate when our guests take the time to write reviews on TripAdvisor.

I spent last week at Utopia Village with a group of friends, and it was one of the best vacations I have ever had. Everything - accommodations, food, and diving - was close to perfect. Utila is a little tricky to get to, but Utopia Village more than makes up for it. The resort is under new ownership. Amazingly, Paul... More

I can't write a review good enough to convey the extraordinary experience at Utopia Village. I'm saying this up front: book now.

My wife and I had such a wonderful time at Utopia Village. The staff, chef, dive team and owners were so great to us. I couldn't have asked for a better way to start scuba diving.

I visited Utopia Village with my son.

This completely renewed resort is owner managed and they personally lead staff by example to treat guests as though they were friends visiting their home.
