We couldn't have found a better place to stay at. While Traci and Mark make it very easy to travel to different places on the lake (even showing us around Santiago), the space is beautiful and it's not a bad idea to just stay, kayak, sit in the hammock, and eat all their good food! I was there with family...

We knew how beautiful Lake Atitlan was in its volcanic splendor, and we were intrigued by the idea of a vegan resort in such a remote and undeveloped area. We were not prepared for how gorgeous the villa was, how gently nestled it was into a beautiful hillside on the shore of the lake, how easy and fun it was...

We went on vacation to Lake Villa Guatemala to learn about plant-based cooking. We did that thanks to the kitchen wizardry of our thoughtful and engaging hosts, Traci and Mark. But we also did more – much more. We were swept away by the natural beauty of the Lake Atitlan area and learned again firsthand how important it is to...

Set in a beautiful location on lake Atitlán with lake frontage this b&b was excellent. Super comfy bed, hot tub and best of all sumptuous vegan cooking. If you're a meat eater you'll still love the food! Traci and Mark were really helpful and fabulous hosts. I will come back. The lake is an amazing experience.

This is a wonderful experience. The location is beautiful, Traci and Mark are excellent hosts, not only providing useful information but also fun conversation that helped us understand the region better, and of course the food is excellent. Traci and Mark were also very accommodating of our logistical desires, which helped us make the most of the limited time (3...

I had stayed here when this Shangri-La first opened. It was a WOW, undiscovered jewel. The memories of the hand made cashew milk that was richer than cream in my coffee...truely amazing.

I expected to have a wonderful time at Lake Villa Guatemala after viewing the website, (I actually chose to travel to Guatemala BECAUSE of this vegan bed and breakfast), but it surpassed my expectations.

If you are ready to disconnect from the stresses of a busy life, I highly recommend the Lake Villa Guatemala. It is one of the most peaceful places on the planet. Only several hours from Guatemala City, on a road that can be a little bumpy in places, the time flew by as we chatted with our driver, Mark. We...

Traci has set up an amazing vegan bnb right on the shores of Lake Atitlan. From the really great views, to the quick boat rides to local towns, to all the tours and activities you can do, everything was perfect for us. We even got to do a ceremony where a local Mayan Shaman blessed us - how cool is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On the shore of Lake Atitlan, surrounded by volcanoes in the highlands of Guatemala, lies a unique destination: Lake Villa Guatemala. A private lakefront villa/retreat with spacious guest rooms, luxurious grounds, beautiful views, thoughtfully prepared whole food (vegan) cuisine, and outstanding personalized attention. This is not a typical B&B: we work with you to create your perfect Lake Atitlan experience. We are in a private, quiet area: the ideal location for personal retreats. Rates include breakfast. Vegan lunch and dinner are available. We are about 10 minutes by car from the town of Santiago Atitlan. We can arrange private tours and excursions to introduce you to the beautiful areas around Lake Atitlan. We will also arrange your transportation to the lake. ... more   less
