Anthony Webber. iGTN Editor-At-Large. New Deluxe Accommodations Offer Opportunity to Play The Black Pearl. Pristine Bay Resort — one of the western Caribbean’s most-anticipated resort communities — announces 12 new luxury villas are now available for vacation rentals on the idyllic tropical island 40 miles off the coast of Honduras.


The 2,400 square-foot, two-bedroom villas are ideal as luxury lodging when playing The Black Pearl – Roatan’s first golf course. Opened for play in January and designed by Perry and Pete Dye, the executive course features a signature island green and 14 holes with mesmerizing sea vistas. The Resort and Spa at Pristine Bay, the island’s first five-star accommodation, is slated for a “soft opening” in early 2012.

“Our new rental villas are perfect for golfers visiting Roatan to experience The Black Pearl,” says Mario Toriello, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Whether playing the extraordinary course, discovering the many splendors of the western Caribbean or simply taking a break from the hustle and bustle of life, Roatan offers vacations to savor forever.”

Long a haven for scuba aficionados, the island boasts the spectacular Meso-American Barrier Reef — the world’s second largest and a “must visit” for those seeking one of the striking seascapes on Earth. To fully enjoy Roatan, Pristine Bay Resort will customize packages that include the deluxe villa accommodations and championship golf, as well as, delicious local dining, all island transportation, zip-lining, deep sea fishing, diving, snorkeling and even swimming with dolphins in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean.

Says Toriello, “With numerous daily flights from abroad Pristine Bay Resort is an ideal home base from which to explore all Roatan offers.”
