Laguna Lodge Eco-Resort & Nature Reserve in Soloa, Guatemala

The eruption of green tourism is most evident at Laguna Lodge Eco-Resort & Nature Reserve, located in a lush region of Guatamala. Built from volcanic stone and textured adobe and palms, this eco-chic retreat is nestled along placid shores in Lake Atitlan National Park and features just seven intimate suites. Each guest abode has an indigenous feel with roomy beds crafted from chunky woods, warm hues that cling to walls, and ornate chandeliers suspended from overhead. Woven textiles and rustic touches complete the eclectic tapestry. Not only can you enjoy a massage and a warm Jacuzzi, but the resort also offers enrichment opportunities such as Spanish lessons and water sports.

Zotz, the intimate restaurant housed on-premises, features outstanding lakeside views with a menu of regional favorites to be enjoyed by candlelight. On chilly evenings a cozy ambiance is ignited by the massive fireplace crafted from river stone and jasper. The sultry Lava Bar oozes with character, and offers a selection of fine wines, beer and spirits including a signature cocktail mixture made with white rum. The zen-like spa is designed to relax and rejuvenate, or you can choose to be more adventurous with activities such as cliff jumping. Enjoy an invigorating swim in the plunge pool or admire the abundance of flora belonging to this incredible region. Mayan highlands conceal a labyrinth of hiking trails where you may stumble across some long-lost artifact. Inhale the fresh air in this remote part of the world, or try to spot some mojarra from the shore, a fish native to the surrounding lake. Life proves to be naturally good at Laguna Lodge Eco-Resort & Nature Reserve.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My wife and I stayed here a couple weeks ago and loved it. It's a gorgeous, award winning boutique hotel right on the shores of Lake Atitlan. The thatch roof style hotel sets the tone for it being an eco lodge, but the rooms are surprisingly spacious and luxurious. All feature big private bathrooms with hot water, king bed, and a private balcony overlooking the lake and volcanoes. On the property they have a small pool, a great deck area for swimming & lounging, a small library/TV room, and an open-air restaurant. They whole most of the mountain side so they built a nice trail to a lookout point/mirador where you can take amazing panoramic pics of the lake and all the volcanoes. Only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 was the dinner menu was very limited. It's vegetarian only and we didn't get a choice of meals, it would have been nice to at least be able to choose what we wanted - and even nicer if you could eat chicken or fish! Food was good, but I wasn't interested in being forced into vegetarian food for the entire stay.

If Lake Maggiore and Bali had a baby, it would be Lake Atitlan. Breathtaking views. And Laguna Lodge is situated right in front of the three iconic volcanoes surrounding the deepest lake in Central America. Beautifully appointed rooms, stunning setting. So peaceful. And we had extraordinary service and attention by the manager when I had a little accident on one of the launches. He stayed with us the entire day while my finger was being attended to. Above and beyond attention and service. Our best advice when visiting Lake Atitlan - WATCH YOUR FINGERS WHEN GETTING OUT OF THE LANCHAS! Do not miss. A wonderful experience.

Everything about this property was's in it's own peaceful part of the lake away from all the crazy but yet just a quick boat ride to the action. Excellent wifi, food, and attentive service. Sometimes communication is a little funny, but they mean well.

Laguna Lodge is one of the most (if not the most) beautiful accommodation located directly on Lake Atitlan. It's located on the north side of the lake in Santa Cruz. A quick, 10-minute boat ride from Laguna Lodge will bring you to any of the popular towns/villages around the lake. This can be done by waving down a public, shared boat for under $5 per person (they can get crowded and timing can be unpredictable) or on a more comfortable, private transfer offered by Laguna Lodge for $20 per person (energy efficient 4 stroke motors). Boat pick-up and drop-off at Panajachel are included with your stay between 7am-5pm, otherwise you'll have to allow the lodge fair warning to accommodate an earlier or later pick-up/drop-off at the per person rate (boat only arrival/departure). Once we arrived to Laguna Lodge, we were given a quick tour of the property. We were shown the restaurant and bar area, a cozy lounge air, and another larger lounge area upstairs where coffee and tea are served all evening (this is a great feature for those ambitious enough to do the Mirador hike in the early morning before sunrise). We stayed in the Quetzal Suite, which was very spacious, bright, and comfortable. Peaking over the edge of our balcony, we noticed a pool down at the dock area, which we hadn't been shown initially. We also didn't learn of the outdoor jacuzzi until the next day, but it looked like a lovely place to soak after a day of touring/hiking (I believe you need to notify the staff an hour or so before use so they can start warming the water). Our Quetzal Suite was comfortably cool at night for sleeping (no need for A/C in this region) and featured a king bed, spacious balcony with outdoor seating (we wish there would have been a hammock), bath robes, a large bathroom and bar station with filtered water and snacks. After settling in we read the Laguna Lodge book in our room and learned much more about the hotel's exhausting endeavors to maintain their eco-sustainable hotel, which is quite impressive! Every single inch of the hotel's accommodations as well as their service/staff reflects their award-winning endeavors for sustainable tourism....the walls are handmade from adobe, the textiles are all local and handmade (towels, blankets, bedding, pillows, robes, etc), the staff are all local, they recycle water, they use solar electricity, organic toiletries are used in the bathrooms, and the list goes on and on. The most notable eco-practice Laguna Lodge offers is vegetarian-only menu (no fish) made from locally sourced, organic ingredients whenever possible. These vegetarian meals are expertly prepared and presented. However, if you prefer to have meat options on the menu, then Laguna Lodge may not be for you. With that said, they do offer boat taxis into Panajachel to explore other restaurants (use their recommendations for the safest options). Since the lodge employees 100% indigenous Kaqchikel staff, there may instances when English communication is more limited to basic requests as the staff is continually learning/studying English. However, this is part of beauty in traveling to new countries and exploring new cultures. We were able to hike up to the Mirador to enjoy the sprawling Lake Atitlan and volcano views. This is not to be missed! The uphill hike only took about 20-30 minutes. If we had had more time, I would have taken a good book and some snacks up with me to enjoy the view for a couple of hours. It would be a wonderful place to practice yoga as well as catch the sunrise. Afterwards, we hiked back down and jumped in the lake to cool off. We then refueled with a cold beer, chips, and guacamole overlooking the lake. Laguna Lodge is an eco-lover's paradise recommended for couples or adult groups that enjoy quality, gourmet vegetarian food. Call us to plan your next trip to Central America!

My boyfriend and I saw a great price on Gilt, thought the grounds looked amazing and booked with out even looking at reviews or researching Lake Atitlan, or Guatemala for that matter. I saw some reviews that definitely made me worried, but we left beyond satisfied and definitely looking forward to another stay. If you're looking for a gorgeous, romantic, effortless and relaxed stay and willing to pay, this is perfection. ($250-300USD/night) The staff is extremely accommodating, the rooms are clean and gorgeous, the grounds are tucked away in it's own little area, and the restaurant (yes more expensive than others on Lake Atitlan) is spectacular. If you're a backpacker looking for a cheap stay, this isn't for you. It's on the more expensive side, but cheap if you're a world traveler who likes to stay in more boutique style hotels. (Yes there was a spider, but if you've ever traveled to an exotic destination, SE Asia... you're in nature, and nature will find a way in!) We paid the hotel $145 USD for a private shuttle to pick us up from Guatemala City. On the way back we opted for a water taxi 15Q and a private shuttle through Atitrans $100usd. The hotel is only accessible by boat (if you don't like bumpy boats this may not be the destination for you), but there are water taxis passing by every 20 minutes or so, you just wave one down and head to your destination. Lake Atitlan is very sleepy and the last water taxi leaves Panajachel at 7pm, San Pedro at 5pm. The hotel was wonderful at helping us book private boats for our early morning hikes and tours. I really only have 2 negatives... everyone who deals with tourists speak English pretty fluently, one of our tour guides had to speak with our desk, and was surprised that a first class hotel didn't have anyone who spoke English. In reality, my boyfriend and I needed to refresh our Spanish skills... but would have been helpful. Second, the website says no children under 12, originally we were planning a trip with our 10 y/o daughter who is pretty chill, so we planned a trip to Mexico with her instead and this was our romantic trip. When we arrived found there were 2 young children staying at the hotel (who were pretty loud, but they're young) Again, it's a pretty sleepy place so not many activities or much to entertain young kids and definitely more relaxed. Overall, I loved it and cannot speak highly enough. Every room, every inch is a picturesque. Thank you!!!
