This is a spectacularly beautiful hotel on the hillside of Lake Atitlan. The views are incredible, and there are lots of lovely places to hang out and enjoy the scenery. Just a quick boat ride from Panajachel, and way quieter. Great launching point to visit...More

Hello, there wasn't any organised yoga at the hotel however there are terraces where you would have room to do yoga. San Marco is a short boat ride around the lake and has lots of organised yoga. Hope this helps.

"Most (if not all) rooms have a lake view. Some are closer to the main reception and restaurant than others."

"Ask for a room close to the dining room so you will have fewer stairs to contend with."
