In the lush hills of Guatemala, you’ll find Hotel Casa Palopó, where stunning volcanic lake views and rustic architecture bring a sense of unpretentious calm in the face of magnificence.
When you think “vacation”, do you picture yourself surrounded by volcanoes, overlooking the deepest lake in Central America? Probably not. And that’s what makes Hotel Casa Palopó such an incredibly unique experience.
This stunning property is set in the steep hills surrounding Santa Catarina Palopó, a Mayan village northwest of Guatemala City. It overlooks Lake Atitlan and not one, but three volcanoes. Each of Hotel Casa Palopó′s seven modern-rustic rooms opens up to this view via private terraces. Even the bathrooms have a view. Rooms also include plush accessories like Aveda spa products and Frette linens, towels, and robes.
The unbroken view of Lake Atitlan and the three volcanoes overlooking it is stunning: from the infinity pool, the terraces or simply through the large bay windows. Built on a hillside, Casa Palopó has preserved a unique intimate atmosphere from its past as a private residence. Its decoration is warm, with a mix of intense colours, massive wood, crafted objects and fabrics and spaces designed to live in. You can stay at the library, in the loungers or in the candle light of the dining room, dreaming of the next escape to the magnificent nature or the discovery of the Maya culture.
