We had the good fortune to stumble across Laguna Lodge just as they were opening their doors. The position overlooking Lake Atitlan is stupendous as is the Lodge itself. The owners, Mayah and Jeffro have created a cozy hideaway easily accessed by boat from nearby Panachel. The private dock leads you up to a gazebo where you can perch to enjoy the Lake scenery. We sat here for a sunset pre dinner cocktail in total contentment.
The interior spaces - rooms, dining area, and public areas are decorated with an earthy luxuriousness combining stone, wood, and artwork with subtle lighting for mood ambiance. The attention to detail was apparent throughout. Their chef Raul prepared us an exquisite four course vegetarian dinner. I do not believe I have ever had such a gourmet vegetarian feast. The majority of the produce comes from the Lodges own organic garden.
Next time we hope to stay longer and have the chance to explore the Lodge’s 100 acre nature reserve. Lake Atitlan is a special place on the planet and staying at Laguna Lodge provides a perfect marriage for a heavenly experience.
