democracy of music

Music is a very important part of the Paya Bay experience. We play a lot of chillout and ambient music at the restaurant/bar. This is the music that best complements the natural beauty that surrounds you. It helps with relaxation and helps raise your awareness of the specialness of place you are staying at. Since it's the music you would hear at a sophisticated South Beach bar or lounge, it really gives Paya Bay a chic edge not found elsewhere on Roatan. When it's time to ramp things up we play 'island music': a compilation of reggae, calypso, soca, and reggaeton tunes that local Roatanians love to get down to. And, of course, on Thursday nights there is the incomparable music of the Garifunas. Their instruments are African drums, conch shell trumpets, empty turtle shell, maracas, and an electric guitar. It's really, really awesome music!

That being said, however, if you book a group of friends at Paya Bay, and you want to play YOUR music, we will give you 100% control. Whatever makes you and your friends feel good and be happy!
