Time magazine describes Laguna Lodge as ‘pure Maya magic’. Lean on the rail of your balcony, glass of wine in hand, and stare out at the turquoise waters of Lake Atitlan towards a trio of distant volcanoes and you’ll understand why.
This five star, boutique hotel stands on the edge of the lake, and is surrounded by a private nature reserve full of Guatemala’s rich flora and fauna – a natural expression of Laguna Lodge’s eco credentials and a gorgeous region to explore.
So luxury is sustainable. Your suite, for example, was inspired by nature, using indigenous materials like volcanic stone, slate, palm thatching and adobe. There’s a hot river rock pool, and a spa featuring a whole range of naturally relaxing and restorative treatments and techniques.
