Situated some ten minutes from the town of Panajachel on a former coffee plantation, this boutique hotel offers a truly luxurious experience in the Guatemalan highlands. With its botanical gardens, carved wood furniture, and Spanish colonial décor, the Hotel Aitlán provides an aesthetic experience that’s in keeping with its gorgeous natural surroundings.
The hotel boasts a range of luxury amenities, from the infinity pool that looks out on Lake Atitlán to balconies with views of the Toliman and San Pedro volcanoes. Here you can enjoy a drink by the fireplace, wander amidst the orchids and bougainvilleas outside, and watch the sunset from the bay windows facing the lake. With this kind of paradisiacal backdrop, it’s no wonder the hotel has won top awards from Conde Nast Traveler, Travel and Leisure, and Trip Advisor for several years running.
