In the Area
Set in the heart of Honduras, there is no shortage of outdoor activities and natural beauty to see in the area. Indura’s in-house excursion center offers a unique experience for adventure seekers looking to tour Honduras from the seas to the skies. Looking to stay on land? Nature tours at the Americas’ largest botanical garden Lancetilla Botanical Garden, 10 minutes from the resort, and Bird Watching at the Pico Bonito National Park, only an hour away by car, are some of the best in the world. Alternatively, the hotel offers a wide array of activities for beach-lovers, from paddle boarding and snorkeling in the coral reefs to early morning monkey tours.
How to Get There
Loved everything! The pool, the beaches, the food. The staff needs a little training to better know the menu of drinks, available desserts and food. Also a little greeting would be appreciated as the supervisors and some staff walked by totally ignoring the guests. The service in general is ok. Will come back!
we can not say enough good things about our stay here. the grounds are beautiful and the staff are wonderful. the chef Fabio is back and his creations are exquisite to see and to your pallet. We have been staying here whenever we come Honduras from the 1st. year it opened. it is our treat once or twice a year. we are from the states and have stayed in luxury hotels in Paris Hong Kong Tokyo Orlando.and Indura is our favorite stay. safe and easy to get to they will pick you up at the airport and return.
I booked my trip and emailed the hotel regarding transportation to the property. I emailed back and forth with Dacyl Prieto who responded very quickly and answered all my questions. Dacyl kindly arranged for an airport pick up and I was picked up at the San Pedro Sula international airport. The price was $150USD for two passengers (round trip). The ride was about an hour and thirty minutes but the vehicle was very comfortable. The driver also picked up another couple traveling there from Chicago so it was nice to have some to converse with during the ride.
As the vehicle pulled in to the hotel, I immediately was impressed by the beauty and cleanliness. The lobby is absolutely gorgeous and you right away get a feeling of peace and tranquility.
Georgyana and Giselle, the two front desk agents who greeted us were friendly, informative, and welcoming. They were able to answer all questions we had about the hotel and provided information about excursions. Giselle also called the bartender who made us a very refreshing welcoming cocktail and brought it to the desk. We were asked for our passport which is very common in international hotels and the agents noticed that my birthday was coming up (will comment about this later on in the review).
We then proceeded to our room which was very spacious and clean. This was an ocean view room with a very large balcony. It was wonderful being able to step out to the balcony and sit with a cup of coffee in the morning and a cocktail in the afternoon just to listen to the ocean waves. The bed of the room was very comfortable, very large closet, and a very large tub for a good bath. The room also had a very good shower with great water pressure.
After relaxing a little, we went to the lobby bar and had a cocktail before dinner. Raul the bartender was very nice. We are wine drinkers and were a bit disappointed that the hotel did not have a better wine selection. I ended up having Grey Goose and my traveling partner had the red wine they offered which was a Santa Helena Merlot.
We then went to the restaurant, where we were greeted by the hostess, Brenda. She was very gracious, friendly and immediately made us feel as if we were in the dining room of our own home. She introduced us to Jonathan, our server. Jonathan was kind, friendly, and very professional. He asked if we were interested in taking a look at the local menu to which we immediately said yes. I had a snail soup and my partner had a seafood soup (we both think it is the best we have ever had). We also ordered a Ceviche which we shared and it was out of this world. We then told Jonathan that we had a little space for an entree but couldn't eat one each. He suggested we shared the Seafood Linguini. He brought it to us already in two separate plates which we appreciated. The taste of it was exquisite - very fresh. The tomato sauce tasted as if the tomatoes had just been picked from a garden. For dessert we shared a pecan pie which was delicious. There is only one restaurant in the hotel.
On day #2, we spent most of the day at the beach - it is a small resort so the beach was not overcrowded. There were plenty of chairs for everyone. There is food service at the beach. We enjoyed the Ceviche so much that we ordered another one at the beach. Ever the beach server took very good care of us. There is also a bar at the beach which only opens on the weekends as it was closed on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. After a while, we decided to sit a the bar. Cristian the bartender made us some really good cocktails and was very friendly. We learned a lot from him about the Honduran culture - He was very engaging and made us feel welcome. In addition to the beach, the hotel has a very large swimming pool. We used it once and it was nice and relaxing.
On my birthday, I ran into a front desk agent Jacquelyn who said Happy Birthday to me. That was so nice - they took note of that when I checked in. Later on that morning, Moises (restaurant server) ran into me in the lobby and asked me to accompany him to the restaurant where he had something special for me. I went with him and they had a complimentary cheese and cracker tray, a bottle of champagne, and two pieces of the most awesome tiramisu I have ever tasted. They also played birthday music. That was a very touching and unforgettable experience.
One night we decided to explore Tela which is the closest town to the hotel. Tela is safe and the hotel will arrange a taxi to bring you to Tela and wait for you there. We had dinner at Maya Vista where we got excellent service and the food was good and reasonably price ($45 USD for two entrees, an appetizer, and two cocktails).
The breakfast at the hotel is very good.... When occupancy is high, a buffet is offered, otherwise, it is a la carte. The menu has a little bit for every taste. You can get eggs benedict, pancakes, waffles in addition to some traditional honduran items. Prices in the restaurant are extremely reasonable for all meals. Moises and Daniel were our servers every morning and took such great care of us. One day, Daniel told us that he wanted us to try Coconut Bread which was not available at the hotel and he brought it from town the next morning for us. Talk about outstanding customer service. The coconut bread was delicious and we were so appreciative. Both Daniel and Moises made us a Papaya juice every morning which was so good.... The refried beans for breakfast are a must try..... so good!!
The spa is a must try. We both had a 30-minute coffee body scrub which leaves your skin like "baby skin". It was only $35USD each...... so reasonable!!!
On our last night there, chef Fabio was told that it was our last dinner there and he came to the table and asked if we would give him the pleasure of cooking a special meal for us that evening. We immediately said yes. My partner was not feeling very well that night so the chef made a delicious chicken soup for him to start. He then brought our entrees which consisted of seafood on a bed of mushroom risotto. It was scrumptious. Claudia the server that night was so friendly and polite.
If you are looking for a place to disconnect from the world and relax, this is the hotel to go. Every single employee is extremely friendly and they will go out of their way to make you have a good experience.
I cannot wait to go back!
What an amazing hotel. It was paradise. My husband and I recently stayed at Indura and enjoyed every single minute that we were there. We visited in early Nov (during low season) and enjoyed complete solitude.
Our room was huge! We loved the decor and layout of our room. We were quite surprised with the spacious lanai. What a bonus! It was really nice to look/listen at/to the ocean and drink our coffee in the morning from the lanai. (On a side note, this is the first hotel we've ever stayed at where the coffee was excellent from the hotel room.)
The hotel is walking distance from the beach. We went to the beach and used the pool daily!!! It's a definite must :)
The food and drinks were all so delicious. There are fresh juices all day long and fresh seafood. For drinks - their pina colada is a must!
The service was excellent. Everyone was friendly and helpful.
We would definitely want to go back.
What an experience! The hotel is fantastic, the staff are so friendly and helpful. Every meal we had was delicious. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. As a diamond member we have travelled the worlds best Hilton’s including Tahiti, Rome and London. The Indura is right up there as one of the best. What a hidden gem. We have done the trip out to the zip wires so far and loved it. I even overcame my sudden fear of heights up in the canopy!! Can’t wait for Cayos Cochinos tomorrow.
