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.

Reviews for Laguna Lodge Eco-Resort & Nature Reserve
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. Itâ€™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.

This place was our anchor for the 5 days we spent on the lake. Every evening we ate at the restaurant, a communal meal at which we met very lovely people from all over the world (not the party crowd one finds in some places). Dinner reservations must be made before 3pm. The owner couple are very welcoming and helpful. Stay here if you are a young trekker. Meet fun people. Come to dinner if you are nearby. We will remember this place forever.

The resort is unique, absolutely gorgeous. The staff incredibly kind, the food delicious and the view has no comparison. We got engaged on the dock, they made everything so we could have the better place, food and service for this special ocassion, you can count with the staff any time.
