Guatemala attracts a lot of backpackers, but there are also some amazing luxury hotels for when you want to treat yourself. Here are the best ones in the country.

Ideally located on the more peaceful side of Antigua’s bustling Fifth Avenue, Meson Panza Verde began life as one of the first European-style B&Bs in town, and since then has gone from strength to strength. With only 12 bedrooms and a pretty jasmine-scented veranda, Meson Panza Verde is ideal for travellers who prefer a more intimate hotel experience, but foodies will also be in their element here. The onsite restaurant is considered one of the best in Guatemala, and you can feast upon sumptuous cuisine in a uniquely artistic environment, as the hotel is also an art gallery.

Santa Catarina Palopó isn’t a normal stop on the Lake Atitlan tourist trail, which means you’ll be able to relax, away from the backpackers. The lakeside property is the epitome of laid-back luxury, and there is an amazing pool looking over the water.
