Inspired by nature and built from volcanic stone, adobe and palm, Laguna Lodge is a fitting part of the landscape along the shore of Lake Atitlan. We arrived under the cover of darkness and the veil of heavy rain, and even in these conditions the lodge looked simply spectacular. Guests are welcomed with warm Mayan hospitality, a friendly face, and a glass of freshly squeezed papaya juice. Stepping into the building, the Mayan art and décor, natural materials and circulating fresh air immediately excite the senses.
Spacious Suites and Volcanic Views
Exploring the grand suite, it’s clear that the bedroom is a dream. It’s a peaceful place to disconnect from the outside world. The bathroom is a further extension of this tranquil theme. Spacious, airy and relaxing, the entire space masterfully created. It’s a miracle guests manage to do anything aside from sleep and soak in the bathtub throughout their entire stay at Laguna Lodge.
When you do extend your gaze outside, wall to wall windows reveal the magnificent dual volcanoes across the mystical lake. To the left stands the vague silhouette of Volcan Toliman, and directly across the water lies the formidable shadow of Volcan San Pedro. Each suite invites you to take in the views, and to soak up the energy of Lake Atitlan.
Reconnect with Nature
Wake up with the sun and sip freshly brewed coffee on the terrace, as you invite the natural masterpiece of the lake to be unveiled before your eyes. Watch as the low morning clouds part and the towns that dot the lake start to come alive. One by one, the early morning fishermen are replaced by water taxis shuttling visitors and locals from one point to the next.
Make your way to the restaurant for a delicious breakfast of locally sourced vegetarian food that is rich in flavours and nourishment. Flow from breakfast to the front deck with a fresh fruit juice in hand, as you think about how you might want to spend your day. The pool and lake await you for a refreshing swim, whilst kayaks and canoes are readily available for those who wish to explore further. The land around Laguna Lodge is also rich in hiking trails, an asset we strongly advise you make use of.
The lake has a way of drawing you deeper into nature. At Laguna Lodge, the days seem a little longer, and the rest feels a little more rejuvenating. Allow your circadian rhythm to reset. Wake up with the sun, and wind down with the sunset, with a siesta in between. This is the much needed break you’ve been craving.
