Located on the shores of Lake Atitlán under the San Pedro, Atitlán, and Toliman volcanoes, La Fortuna at Atitlan is tucked into the private bay of Patzisotz, only a 5 minute boat ride from Panajachel. Here you can relax in our lush jungle and gardens, and take in the view of Central America’s most spectacular lake. We have two bungalow suites with king size beds, and luxurious private spa like outdoor garden bathrooms with hot tubs, and two regular bungalows with a queen bed and single, and private luxurious garden bathrooms. Breakfast and dinner is available. Hiking, kayaking, scuba diving, and exploring the indigenous villages around the lake can be organized through the lodge. Come and experience the natural and cultural wonder of Lago Atitlán at La Fortuna in Guatemala's most beautiful tourist destination. Suites are $99 a night, and regular rooms are $66. High season rates may be slightly higher (December and Holy Week). We are the only hotel on a private bay - and attract lots of birds including nesting herons because of the tranquility and being off the beaten track.
We have a lake front hot tub and free wi-fi on the property for all guests to enjoy.
Please note that this location is not ideal for those with mobility issues or small children.
This place is paradise on earth! We really loved to stay here, Kat and Steve are so welcoming and we where amazed how they build such a beautiful place and thought about all the small details which made everything perfect. They where caring and friendly and you can use the jacuzzi, the kayaks and enjoy the wonderful environment.
We hope to come back! :)
We absolutely loved La Fortuna!!!!!!
We stayed in bungalow no. 3. We felt like we were in a tree house for adults. We didn't expect to love it as much as we did.
The staff was great, food was fantastic... Loved the dock and going for a swim.
Kat went above and beyond for us. My husband was sick with a local infection. She knew what it was and picked up the medication for him. We very much appreciated her assistance in this regard.
If we are ever in Guatemala again, we will be staying there but for longer next time!!!!!!!!
Don't think, just book!!!! It'll be a great experience!!!!! Guaranteed!!
This was only my second AirBnb experience and I feel like I struck gold again at La Fortuna. Steve and Kat's slice of paradise is a total delight. It is very apparent they have lovingly poured themselves into creating a true haven that can accurately be spoken of as "muy tranquilo"! The cabana in which we stayed was a dream-like setting - one of which I have always desired to experience tucked back in the jungle-like setting; my favorite without a doubt was the outdoor bathroom and shower - ok, WOW! The food was exceptionally good, coffee grown on their property was muy rico; Ana y Magdalena (on staff) were so friendly and we and enjoyed a delightful chat. My only regret is that we were only able to fit in one night at La Fortuna in our journey to Lago Atitlan! If you treat yourself to this enchanting retreat be sure and let Sasha and Sydney, the family dogs, be your escorts on a hike up to the mirador (overlook up the hill) -- also this trail is where I saw my first coffee plants growing in the wild - for whatever reason I will always remember that, I'm a coffee fiend (and btw I brought home a bean in my pocket) :-) Don't miss out on La Fortuna !!!
Absolutely amazing stay! beautiful. Food was great. Kat and Steve are lovely hosts with tons of good intel. Amazing outdoor shower. Great hikes and great swimming spot. It was the perfect romantic place to spend our honeymoon and we plan to return as soon as we can. Thank you so much for such a lovely stay!
Where to start.... Well let's say that it was SO GOOD that we were delighted that Katharine and Steve could arrange for us to stay for an extra night.
The place is a dream, the bungalow is beautiful, the outside bathroom is amazing. The view, I can't even describe... Down to every detail (super nice macadamia soaps, soft bedsheets, etc.), it was perfect!
We ate the dinners cooked by Steve every night, it's fresh, well prepared and totally delicious.
The whole thing felt like a honeymoon and if I was planning one I would not have a better idea than going there! Highly recommended!
La Fortuna is PARADISE. Steve and Kat deliver hospitality at its finest, making sure your every need is taken care of and your stay luxurious. The property is secluded in a private bay with some of the best views on the lake. The bungalows are beautifully crafted with careful attention to detail, the food cooked to perfection each morning and night, and the locally grown coffee some of the best I've ever had. I hope to visit again soon and absolutely recommend La Fortuna as one of the most special places on Atitlan!
Staying at La Fortuna was an isolated paradise. A 5-10 min boat ride from Pana., it was close enough to explore beyond the jungle, yet with Steve's efficiency/attentiveness you didn't have to leave LF. We very much enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.
A really great getaway. This is more of an "eco hotel" than a house rental, which was great because we had Steve on site to tend to our every need: beers and wine by the lake, recommendations on where to go and what to see on the lake, etc. It was really private, but other guests are around so you could be social if you wanted to. We would definitely come back and recommend to friends. They provided delicious breakfast and dinner options for additional charges, so we didn´t have to leave the cove. Loved it!!
