Loved Upachaya! It was such a tranquil, calm, and relaxing place to stay. The lodge is nestled under the trees on a hillside, and gets amazing breezes off the bay. Though there are fewer easily reachable activities away from the larger towns on the island, I really enjoyed the peace of Upachaya. You can still call a car if you want to go to a beach, go diving, go to town, etc. Or Barbara will make all of your meals, and you can kayak, snorkel, swim in the great pool, or do some yoga without leaving the retreat. Highly recommend if you want to get away from people and enjoy some peace and quiet.
Only negative was lack of a full kitchen for guests' use. Though there was a small fridge, microwave, and toaster oven in my room, it would've been nice to be able to make a full, hot meal myself- instead of relying on Barbara or going into town.
Barbara was incredibly welcoming and helpful - a wonderful host. My three closest girlfriends and I had a great time relaxing by the pool, eating delicious meals, hanging out with the friendly staff, snorkeling/kayaking, yoga, etc. everything you need you'll find at Upachaya or Barb will hook you up!
Thanks again for a wonderful birthday celebration Barb et al!

PERFECTION and exactly what we needed. Barbara is incredible. Within an hour of booking, she was already messaging us with any dietary needs we had to make sure we were comfortable. Victor picked us up from another hotel right on time. From start to finish everything was perfect. Even when my wife got stung and we had to make a run to the clinic, Barbara didn't even miss a beat making sure we were taken care of. So open and warm. The kayaking and snorkeling with Mario was one of our best snorkeling adventures to date!
We only had 4 days to stay but can't wait to go back. We chose the all inclusive option and were not disappointed. All three meals here were delicious and plenty to go around.
If you are looking for peace and calm with some adventure thrown in...you've come to the right place. Great for groups of friends and families as well!
Thanks to Barbara, Mario, Ever, Victor, Rosali, Rosario and Kelly! You were all so special and made our trip one to brag about... ;)
I spent four days at Upachaya last november and I am sure I will return very soon. Barbara is a warm, caring and sweet host. As a solo traveller, I felt safe and Barbara made everything very easy for me, including preparing delicious and healthy meals, taking care of my airport transport and my excursions. As a guest, I also enjoyed a special discount for the snorkel and kayak excursions to the amazing reefs near Upachaya that depart right from Babara´s beautiful deck next to the bay.
The property is beautiful and the rooms clean and comfortable.
If you seek for a break in a peaceful place in beautiful Roatan, far from the noise of the touristy area, Upachaya is a great choice.
Barbara is a fantastic hostess at an incredible resort. Barbara has created an oasis for people who want to get away and relax. Her cooking is delicious, the property is gorgeous, the room was perfect, the bed so comfortable! You can see that there has been a lot of attention paid to the little details when designing the property and resort. Barbara herself was lovely to chat with and was really helpful arranging a car rental for us. After 2 weeks of traveling, we couldn't have picked a better place to spend our last two days to relax before heading home.
We really enjoyed our stay at Upachaya with Barbara. She was was very accommodating with everything including dietary concerns. She even baked a cake for my friend's birthday. The lodge is very clean and peaceful with an amazing view. You will find it very relaxing for sure. Barbara will direct you to the right places/people on the island. She was able to answer all our question before and during our stay at Upachaya. I will recommend anyone in search of a peaceful stay in Roatan to stay with Barbara at the eco-lodge.
About the Host, Barbara
I would love to share Upachaya with you. I had a dream to build a wellness resort and here I am, living my dream on this beautiful island of Roatan, Honduras. I've been on Roatan, for 8 years and love every minute. We are very Eco-conscious here at Upachaya doing all we can to have minimal impact on Mother Nature. We continue to plant more and more fruits and vegetables grown organically on my property which we then use to feed our guests. Sustainable vacationing at its finest! Come enjoy our gardens, our serenity, and all that Mother Earth offers on land and in the sea just a few minutes away by kayak to the Meso-American barrier reef, the 2nd largest barrier reef in the world. If you have special dietary needs, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate those needs.
