The gorgeous Laguna Lodge eco hotel is nestled amongst the beautifully abundant, vernal trees on the shores of Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, one of the most stunning lakes in the world.
The awe inspiring Lake Atitlan is 11 miles in diameter and is over 1000 feet deep. The lake’s shores are shadowed by three volcanoes and are home to sleepy villages and old-worldly coffee plantations.
Laguna Lodge is really organic-looking and there is a huge emphasis on sustainability and the environment. It is also wonderfully luxurious and the most perfect place to get away from the stresses of modern life.
There are just 6 suites in this little eco hotel, all with uninterrupted views of the lake and the volcanoes. Each one has a natural feel, luxurious finishes and a private terrace for some serious reclining.
The lodge is accessible by boat only, instantly transporting you from the hustle and bustle of the near by villages. There is as much or as little to do as you fancy. Forest walks, volcano hikes, scuba diving, mountain biking, swimming, horse riding and paragliding are just a few of the many activities available. If this already sounds like way too much, they have an indulgent spa and a terrace overlooking the lake, where you can take a seat and watch the world go by to the sounds of the forest and the gentle lapping of the sparkling waters.
Laguna Lodge’s Zotz restaurant is perched on the side of the lake. It is a vegetarian restaurant, using only organic vegetables and herbs harvested from their own gardens and local produce from nearby farmers. It also boasts a fabulous wine cellar to complete the fine dining experience.
Rates: From US $240 a night per suite.
