Hotel Casa Palopó


Set in the village of Santa Catarina Palopo, not far from Panajachel town, Hotel Casa Palopó is a small boutique hotel offering a lounge, bar and garden terrace affording fine views over the lake. There is also an outdoor pool. It is the only Relais & Chateau hotel in Guatemala.

Each of the original nine unique, individually decorated rooms benefits from a balcony, en-suite bathroom with a bath and free toiletries, and a private seating area. There is also a recently added extension wing with six new, modern rooms and suites which keep to the original vision, making a total of 15 rooms.

Casa Palopó has a restaurant offering American or continental breakfasts, and for lunch and dinner a variety of delicious local and French dishes, and vegetarian and vegan options too.

The highly regarded hotel, situated on a hillside, is one of the premier accommodation options in the vicinity of Lake Atitlan, with discreet and attentive service. Plans afoot include a new wellness centre featuring a fitness studio and spa.

For those wanting more exclusivity, Casa Palopo has a private two-bedroom villa set just above the hotel, with its own pool and a kitchen, living room and Jacuzzi.


This no-smoking hotel features a restaurant, an outdoor pool and a bar cum lounge. There is free WiFi in public areas and spa treatments are available.
All nine individually decorated properties feature thoughtful touches including bathrobes and slippers, and guests will also find balconies and room service (during limited hours).
