Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Las Lagunas is surrounded by the natural beauty characteristic of the Peten region, set in thick jungle and boasting no fewer than five lagoons on the grounds. Monkeys, margay tigers, ocelots and wild pigs are among the animals that roam the private reserve, and you can spot them on expert-led wildlife tours every day. 

Rooms at Las Lagunas

Las Lagunas’ luxurious suites have an organic aesthetic designed to help them blend in with the jungle, with wood-panelled walls and ceilings and stunning views through large floor-to-ceiling windows. Waterfront Suites overlook the peaceful Quexil Lagoon, while Master Suites feature their own enclosed decks, where you can enjoy lazing in a Jacuzzi while looking out over the lagoon and jungle below.

Food & Drink

The hotel restaurant, Shultun, combines fresh local ingredients with gourmet presentation and a sophisticated setting. Dishes encompass Guatemalan and international options, with the speciality being white fish from the adjacent lake; tuna, beef tenderloin and entrecote are other examples of dishes on offer. The well-stocked bar offers a variety of beers, wines, spirits and signature cocktails.


The hotel’s spa features a range of indulgent wellness treatments, ranging from traditional massage to aromatherapy, facials and manicures. The hotel’s crescent-shaped infinity pool melts away into the lagoon, and is a lovely place to relax after an afternoon’s wilderness adventures.

Activities at Las Lagunas

The Peten region is home to a large number of Mayan archaeological sites, including Tikal, Uaxactun, and Yaxha. Compared to better-known Mayan sites such as Mexico’s Chichen Itza, these attractions are largely free from tourist crowds, so you can really enjoy getting lost in the ruins. A range of nature experiences are also on offer at the hotel, with the most popular being trips to visit the monkeys who live on islands in the lagoon.
