The Laguna Lodge is on the lakeshore of the legendary Lake Atitlan and exclusively nestled in its own nature reserve. Entry into this Mayan world begins by boat. In a privileged setting our luxuriously natural 5 star boutique hotel commands sweeping views over azure waters to a trio of dramatic volcanoes. Inspired by nature and created from volcanic stone, adobe and palm our spacious lakeside suites are individually appointed with comfortable hand hewn king beds, fine linens, intricate woven textiles and indigenous antiques. In the evenings our award winning Zotz restaurant is bathed in golden hues from a large stone fireplace and antique candelabras, a romantic ambiance for a fine dining experience. After the days tours and adventures enjoy a dip in the hot river rock spa pool and be pampered with a relaxing body treatment offered at our Hummingbird spa. Relax at the lava bar or lakeside pavilion and watch the surreal sunset turn into a star studded night. The Mayan highlands are rich in culture and the lodge’s indigenous staff look forward to offering you a unique and memorable experience! - Utz Ipetik! Welcome! Come and explore, discover and experience with us and see why Time magazine says – Laguna Lodge is pure Maya magic!

My boyfriend and I visited Laguna Lodge for the first time this summer and the stay did not disappoint! The views of the lake and the surrounding volcanoes are absolutely stunning. The service is incredible as well and there are many activities to do (we greatly enjoyed kayaking on the lake from the hotel). The resort is also on a nature reserve and has a private trail head entrance. Maps are available at the front desk. Breakfast is included with the stay however dinner is not. They also serve tea and cookies every evening and morning. Just to be aware, only vegetarian food is served. The resort is also a short boat ride away from the surrounding towns. You can rent either a private boat or take the public boat (which is 25 quetzales/person one way). It is very easy to flag down a boat, we just stood on the dock and waved and were easily able to obtain a ride. We also visited San Pedro for the day to hike up Volcan San Pedro (which we were easily able to book with a guide through the hotel) and the next day for a stroll around town. There are NO ATMS in town to take out money. However you are able to exchange cash at many of the activity shops in town right off the main dock. We had a wonderful stay and already look forward to visiting Lake Atitlan again!

Laguna Lodge is the most perfect getaway. The staff is so welcoming and accommodating, the rooms are absolutely gorgeous, and the food is to die for. If you are staying in the Lake Atitlan area the Laguna Lodge is a must. This is the best hotel we have ever stayed at - no exaggeration! They take great care in every detail of your stay and make it a vacation you can’t forget!

The property has the most stunning views ever! My room was gorgeous. authentic, and had amazing views. The food was very good and healthy and had Gluten free options which was helpful. Some of the outside could be updated but it kind of goes along with the shabby chic look. I would def stay here again. The views really are incredible.

We visited Laguna lodge for our first time this spring, and had the most incredible time. This hotel is tucked into the hillside on the shores of lake atitlan and offers the most incredible views!!! Here are a few reasons why we fell in love with this special spot: First and most importantly, Laguna is a an eco lodge that prioritizes sustainability over profit 100% of the time. If you value our planet, seeking out locations that practice sustainable hospitality should be important to you. Sustainable travel is the ONLY way to go moving forward - our planet depends on it. Laguna uses solar energy to power their hotel, serves a vegetarian menu (evidence shows that a plant based diet drastically decreases our carbon footprint), and has locally sourced every item in their hotel! Their eggs are from the village near by, their produce is grown locally, the bed runners were woven by local Mayan women, their staff (who is more like family) are all local and have been a part of their team for decades. Every little detail has been thought of and it is all part of their sustainable design. 🌅 The views. San Pedro volcano towers in the distance along with Atitlan and Toliman. We had coffee every morning over looking the lake, and sat on our deck to soak in the sunset every evening. I never once tired of the jaw dropping views. 🥾 The hiking. Laguna lodge is home to its very own nature preserve. A network of safe hiking trails are accessible right from the lodge. We enjoyed hiking up over the ridge, and lounging in the hammocks they have set up. Additionally, you can arrange a guided hike up the volcanoes or several other hikes right from the front desk. 🚣 The water activities. Kayaking or paddle boarding this lake is an incredible experience. The water is calmest in the mornings, and the quiet that covers the lake is therapeutic. 💫The amenities. After a day of hiking nothing feels better than a dip in their gorgeous infinity pool, followed by a soak in the river rock hot tub. Laguna Lodge was one of our very favorite locations - I know you will just love it too!

We had not seen Guatemala before and found the laguna lodge in a NatGeo magazine, so got our covid test and flew down....What a wonderful week! Exploring the local culture in the surrounding villages and hiking san pedro volcano with Pablo, which was an amazing experience with views to further volcanos and the coast! The lodge is made from adobe in a hacienda style and furnished with a unique eco-lux ambience. The restaurant was extraordinary and the menus varied and to top it off were served by lovely Glenda and Francisco. Our suite the quetzal was spacious and immaculately presented with views directly over the water to the volcanos, magical sunsets included! We will be back and recommending this special place to our friends and fam, 5 star service from a 5 star eco-lodge!!!
