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.

The location of the hotel - right on the water of Lago de Atitlan, facing San Pedro volcano - is stunning, but you can only get there by boat from Panajachel. As you approach it, the hotel looks like a giant multi-tiered palapa. Our room on the ground floor was beautifully designed and very comfortable, and it was one of the "cheaper" rooms. We had our own patio, carefully screened to preserve privacy while not blocking the view of the lake. You do have to climb stairs to get to the bar and restaurant and even more if you want to get to one of the lounges on the top floor. The place is staffed by young people from the adjacent village of Santa Cruz; most of them speak a reasonable English and they are very helpful and attentive. I had difficulty communicating with the hotel before we got there - we booked it just the day before - and there seems to be a lack of on site management personnel. The food in the restaurant is all vegetarian, which for us was a boon, and was good, although not up to the "haute cuisine" standards that the website seems to promise. The walk (climb) around the nature reserve - we only did the "short" one to the palapa - is fun, but if you are no longer in the first flush of youth, do not believe the time estimates they give. It was worth the effort to rock gently in the hammock high above the lake with just the sky and the mesmerizing bulk of the volcano to entertain your eyes; just remember to take water with you.

The Laguna Lodge is a magical place in a magical setting. The rooms are beautifully appointed with mind boggling views of volcanos. Frankly, we just loved sitting in our balcony watching the light change on the volcanos. The staff are warm and helpful. This is definitely a spot if you plan to "chill" for a few days - which is exactly what we wanted to do. The Lodge is a bit remote, so there's a couple things to note. First, as many reviewers have noted the food is vegetarian. We figured this out only a couple days before we arrived! My fiancé freaked out a little bit, but in truth, we had the BEST food we had in all of Guatemala there. The prix fixe menu we had the first night was phenomenal vegetarian food. The breakfasts were yummy, too. We adventured further afield for lunch, walking on the lakeside path to the town for lunch on two days. One day we trekked up to the Mayan village to have lunch and the other day we had lunch in the lakeside town. We also enjoyed the Nature Reserve, hiking along to the platform where you can see amazing views of the whole lake. The Laguna Lodge is a very special place. And, OMG, I could just stare at those volcanos all day long!!

Welcome to paradise - Laguna We Lodge was a wonderful place to spend Christmas and New Year. Arriving by boat locks you into the secret that lies within. It’s a tiny hotel but there is plenty to do - enormous rooms with spacious balconies (we had Quetzal) - two lounges and a bar/restaurant - a large sun deck by the lake and pool and acres of hillside to climb. We loved lazing on the jetty with those amazing volcano views. The food is all vegetarian, innovative and well-prepared with a choice of a fixed menu or A la Carte every evening. The staff are amazing - proud of their background and always helpful. It would have been helpful if I had better Spanish - but Lesley and I found common ground to communicate changes to our stay, Francisco and Glenda helped us learn and Benjamin enjoyed practising his stellar English. We explored the local villages, an easy walk to Santa Cruz or public boats to Panajachel, San Juan and San Marco. Private boats including the hotel are a more expensive option for those focused on safety over economy (late afternoon trips across the lake as the wind picks up are uncomfortable). The nature reserve has some challenging and rewarding walks and the easy 30 minutes to the hammocks is well worth it for the views and the solitude. There is always room to improve - room changeovers were late some days and the menu could be simplified - the specials are on a set menu and it is hard to pick out starters and mains from the snacks. Nightlife is very relaxed with the bar closing at 9:30 most evenings. We did however finish New Year at 1 am with charming and committed owners Jethro and Maya, and champagne and sparklers with our fellow guests. Must do.

We were stunned by the volcano view when we walked into our Tecun Uman suite. Absolutely breathtaking! The bed was very comfortable and we spent a good amount of time reading on the veranda and taking in the beauty of it all. The decor around the Lodge was very tasteful and represented the local textile traditions. Happy to see that La Laguna hires local staff. We can't say enough about the wonderful service these individuals provided us with each day. Some tips for owner/management: We would have liked a tour of the facility upon arrival. We were greeted with a glass of watermelon juice (a nice touch) and shown to our room. However, we were left to walk around the property on our own to see what amenities were available. Yes, there was a document in the room which outlined these, but still... Also, this was the only accommodation on our Guatemalan journey where we had to pay for breakfast. Including $10 per head into the (already too) high room cost for breakfast just makes sense.

The facilities are enchanting and luxurious. The all-vegetarian restaurant suited our family of four adults. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed hiking in the nature reserve. The lodge is well-located, an easy boat ride from Pana and walking distance from Santa Cruz.
