Las Lagunas Boutique Hotel
Las Lagunas is an exclusive boutique hotel nestled in one of northern Guatemala’s pristine nature reserves, a place of real outdoor action and adventure.
The UNESCO-stamped archaeological site of Tikal lies just an hour’s drive away and on top of family-friendly packages including bespoke kids activities, there are varied jungle treks, tours and wildlife-watching all within touching distance of the hotel. This is due to the property’s location, sitting amidst the rainforest on the shores of Quexil Lagoon and, with its floor-to-ceiling windows and lakeside bungalows - the hotel certainly makes the most of this glorious setting – in addition to the catalogue of available excursions of course.
The décor nods toward these all-natural surroundings with its locally-sourced materials and dark wood finishes, yet the facilities are decidedly modern; free Wi-Fi in each bungalow, a spa and infinity pool overlooking the water, to name a few. Best of all is the hotel’s very own museum, which showcases a range of historical artefacts and pieces from across the region.
Dine at Las Lagunas’ scenic restaurant, Shultun, where typical Guatemalan cuisine meets international fare, using fish caught straight from the lagoon itself – to be enjoyed on either the outdoor terrace or a private meal on the dock, something extra special before retiring to your intimate bungalow for a blissful night’s sleep in the jungle.
