Perched in a spectacular fashion above beautiful Lake Atitlán in the Guatemalan Highlands. Casa Palopó is a place for relaxation on the banks of one of the country’s greatest draws. An especially noteworthy feature is the helipad on-site; many visitors skip the three-hour drive from Guatemala City and arrive via helicopter – which is not only a luxury amenity available to book through the hotel, but also an unforgettable sightseeing experience for the views.
Fifteen private guest rooms evoke Mayan heritage with their furnishings, indigenous artefacts and décor. Wooden beams overhead and polished wooden floors complement the vibrant walls and furniture. Comfortable beds are made with top-quality Italian linens. Private terraces are furnished with small tables and cushioned lounge chairs to soak up the amazing views.
Villa Palopó is contemporary, decorated with African tribal relics and Indonesian wood furniture. The very private villa is perched 150 cobblestone steps above the main hotel and offers three guest rooms, along with a large living area with fireplace and full kitchen with open dining room. Floor-to-ceiling windows and huge open terraces showcase both the views and the villa’s infinity pool. Golf cart service is available within minutes to whisk guests between the villa and main building. Guests can rent a room here individually, or book the entire villa — in which case, butler service is provided.
