Infinity Rises With Roatan

Roatan Island, Honduras – Roatan, emerging as the Caribbean’s newest vacation hotspot, is now home to its largest and most bio-sensitive and upscale resort.

Located in the heart of West Bay Beach, Infinity Bay, the island’s greenest resort has been designed to protect the coral reef system that curls around Roatan’s shores. The barrier reef, second in size only to Australia’s, is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.

“The reef is by far the most precious resource we have and we now know it is a lot easier to destroy than it is to preserve,” says Scott Bocci of Infinity Bay Spa and Beach Resort. “We are keenly aware of that and we have taken every possible measure we can to protect the reef.”

Infinity Bay’s state-of-the-art septic facilities put 0 pollutants into the ocean and emit no odors.

For their guests’ comfort, the resort has also installed a reverse osmosis water purification system making all the tap water throughout the resort and in all its rooms 100% potable. The resort’s water will also soon be heated by solar panels.

“Everything they have said they would do – they have done, and I respect that,” says Julio Galindo, former Roatan mayor and owner of the iconic Anthony’s Key Resort. “I am very happy with what they have built – they have taken things to a new level.”

Roatan’s coral reef system is one of the region’s most biologically diverse marine habitats. The area is considered by many to be the best spot for scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing in the world, and has been a diver’s paradise for years.

Phase I of Infinity Bay includes 55 studio, one, two and three bedroom extravagant suites, a beachfront restaurant, a fresh water pool complete with 3 waterfalls, a bridge and an infinity edge, and a private dock with water taxi.

Phase II, has 90 units, a full service restaurant, a spa and health club complex, and conference facilities. The resort will serve both business and leisure travelers.

“It is by far the most luxurious resort on Roatan,” says Bocci. “In all aspects they are great accommodations.”

Infinity Bay offers both vacation and ownership opportunities. Prices for completed units range from $260,000 for a studio to $575,000 for a premium two bedroom villa. Preconstruction prices begin at $215,000.

Roatan is the largest of the Bay Islands off the coast of Honduras, just a 2 ½ hour direct flight from Houston, Texas. The island is 35 miles (58 km) long and 1-3 miles (2-4 km) across. Its topography ranges from sandy beach and iron shoreline to mangroves, lush valleys and tropical hilltops.

Top Picks in Leather Shoes

I’m sure all of us have had a pair of leather shoes in our lifetime’which is why leather shoes are a must-have in any woman’s wardrobe. There are tons of fabulous designs out there in the market that any woman can appreciate. So here are my top picks in leather shoes.

1. Athletic Shoes: Pastry Glam Pie Sneakers

The Pastry sneaker line, by Vanessa and Angela Simmons, is definitely a fierce line of athletic shoes for women. Personally, I’m ecstatic that there is finally a line of girly athletic footwear. That’s why the Glam Pie hi-top sneaker for $50 is my pick for best leather sneaker. It comes in a variety of adorable color combinations like brown and baby blue or pink and purple. But what I love most about this leather sneaker is its eyelet leather panel that’s displayed on the sides of the shoe; which is something rarely seen in sneaker designs. Also its retro 80′s hi-top look makes it feel young and hip.

2. Boots: Pour La Victoire Jeana Patent Granny Boot

Remember the story about the old woman who lived in a shoe? Well, this Pour La Victoire Jeana leather boot reminds me of that’only much chicer. These beautiful granny boots with yellow patent leather is an awesome choice for any fashion risk-taker. With its lace-ups and high heels’not to mention its fabulous color’this boot definitely has a 60′s mod look to it. So for those women looking for a fabulous and unique leather boot, look no further, because these boots are the perfect choice.

3. Pumps: Miss Sixty Jess Peep Toe Pump

Everybody always go back to the basics. And the Miss Sixty Jess Pump is definitely a classic staple that every woman should have. From the boardroom to the club, a good pair of black leather peep toe pumps always deliver. These particular leather pumps are great because of its simple design, playful peep toe and ultra high heel. Plus with a price tag of only $70, who wouldn’t want these shoes?

4. High Heel Sandals: Balmain Giuseppe Zanotti for Balmain Gladiator Sandals

From the runways to the soles of the hottest celebrities, we all know that an ultra high, ultra sexy, pair of gladiator sandals are in. But these fierce Balmain Gladiator Sandals’take the cake. Costing at a whopping $1,200, I doubt that the average Joe (or in this case Joanne) could afford this hot leather shoe’but a girl can dream. The sandal comes in unique pebbled leather, a sexy 4-inch stiletto, dozen of straps that come up to your calves, and edgy silver studs that are meticulously placed throughout the sandal. With all this going on in one shoe, what isn’t there to love?

5. Flat Sandals: Pour La Victoire Ella Sandal

here are a lot of flat sandals in the stores, but I have to say the Ella Sandal by Pour La Victoire ranks up there on the top of my list. These leather sandals (which come in an adorable pink snakeskin print), definitely combines soft’almost romantic designs’with hard material elements. One of the most striking features has to be the beautifully constructed leather ruffle with zipper trim, adhered on the top of the sandal. Although it might be pricey for some at $215, it is still a great pick for summer.

Leather shoes are always a staple in any woman’s closet. So, if you don’t have a leather sandal or a pair of leather pumps, what are you waiting for?
