Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
Built into the hills of Guatemala’s scenic Santa Catarina Palopó village, Casa Palopo overlooks the famous Lake Atitlan, “The Land of Eternal Spring,” and her 3 10,000-foot-high volcanic peaks. Intimate and quiet, the resort offers just 9 rooms, each decorated to reflect Guatemala’s unique Mayan heritage, as well as fine dining at 6.8 Palopó. VIPs book the 2-bedroom Villa Palopó, sitting 150 steps above the resort and offering a private butler, infinity-edge pool, Jacuzzi and dining room.
