La Fortuna at Lake Atitlan is unlike any other place I've ever stayed. Every detail of this gorgeous property was unique and embraced the amazing setting of the location. Greeted by a warm, smiling staff, a couple of friendly dogs, a cocktail and a dip in a hot tub by a fireplace overlooking the lake-- I couldn't dream up a more perfect place.
I stayed alone in bungalow 3 (traveling with a group of friends) and felt completely relaxed- the bed was so comfortable and there was even an outdoor loft that i climbed into and read, enjoying the views and the breeze in the privacy of my own "treehouse".
The outdoor bathroom and shower was my favorite part, showering under the stars and surrounded by trees and the beautiful design of the space. I felt so cared for, having both privacy and comfort.
The food was amazing and the staff was over the top helpful- carrying my heavy bags up and down the stairs, making sure my water was refilled, that I had clean towels and making sure everything easy for me. Not only that- Kat and Steve, the owners, have incredible knowledge of the area and made it easy to plan a perfect trip around the lake and beyond.
If you want an experience that bridges eco-luxury to an authentic experience with Guatemala, then stay at La Fotuna at Lake Atitlan.
