Come play I Spy!

Many of our previous guests with young children tell us that our hotel not only provided a wonderful and creative space for their small kids, but also the vast amount of objects that entertained them during their stay with us as well.  Roam our gardens, and explore the funky unique pieces that decorate and add to this beautiful property.   We would also like to take this opportunity to remind our guests and future visitors to exercise mindfulness when interacting with the art. It is important that we ask for your help in ensuring you do your part in helping us preserve its optimal state.

Neil and Julia Keller, owners of the Jade Seahorse, have spent over twenty years expanding their business from the original Fruit Shake Village and Treetanic Bar to include a gourmet restaurant and private cabin for overnight accommodations.  Originally, Neil split his time between Los Angeles, where he taught school, and Utila.  Upon his return to the island every spring, he would immediately dive into the construction and landscaping of the property.  

What has revolved is an almost psychedelic array of meticulous designs utilizing everything in the garden both natural and manmade.

 We feel obliged to remind our guests that when you are visiting us at Jade Seahorse, Utila, you are visiting the inland tropics and you may encounter the harmless and beautiful Silk Golden Orb "banana spiders" that carefully spin their webs, high above the mango trees. Nonetheless, if you are someone who experiences fear of arthropods, we kindly suggest you reconsider your visit or come with an open heart.

 Whole plates and bottles stack one upon the other to create the illusion of  gingerbread Christmas trees.  Conch and other seashells accent the eclectic shapes that colorfully spill out from everywhere.
