Lush, lavish, green, blossoming…these words all describe this abundant accommodation in the captivating village of San Marcos La Laguna, on Lake Atitlan. Carved into a hillside on the Lake AtitlÃ¡n’s shores, this hotel has 10 one of a kind rooms and suites, designed with vibrant local art, textiles, and carvings, plus private terraces and balconies. Families will revel in the treehouse feel, and the tropical flora and fauna setting. Attentive staff help guests sign up for hikes with local guides and book transportation around the village, lake, and all the way to the airport in Guatemala City. It’s the perfect spot to explore the lake away from the hubbub of Panajachel.

- Treehouse vibe
- Picturesque and authentic Maya village location
- Matchless views of Lake Atitlan and its volcanoes
I stayed one night at Lush in a double room with shared shower but with private bathroom.
The hotel is beautiful and right next to Cerro Tzankujil. Very quiet but near the main street.
The rooms and common areas are very clean and beautiful and the staff is very helpful.
Totally recommend especially for a romantic getaway or just for a relaxed stay.
The breakfast is also very good.

Lush is a unique boutique hotel set in a stunning location it is surrounded by beautiful gardens filled with hummingbirds and set on the shores of a crystal clear lake with stunning views of a volcano. I was lucky enough to stay there and immediately felt the stress fall away a must see and do if your visiting Guatemala the villages surrounding the lake are colourful and each village has something beautiful to offer from coffee to chocolate and beautifully hand made coloured textiles. This is a magical place and well worth checking out.
