Casa Palopó, Lake Atitlan’s exclusive micro-boutique hotel, recently announced the addition of a full-service boutique spa within its main building, something Luxury Travel Advisor got the scoop on during our visit to the property in Guatemala last summer.

Offering Balinese charm, the cozy, 130 square-foot space is located between the pool and 6.8 Palopo Restaurant. With room to accommodate just one VIP at a time, the spa offers a designated area to indulge in highly personalized experiences with a variety of unisex treatments that include full body massages, facials and beauty services, using Eminence Organic Skin Care, OPI, Masglo, L’Oreal and GiGi products.

VIPs are welcomed with a cup of green tea ice cream or warm green tea to detox and calm the body. Adding to the experience are panoramic views of the serene lake and its three majestic volcanoes, visible from Casa Palopó’s boutique spa. For VIPs still wishing to enjoy treatments outdoors, the hotel will continue to offer in-room massages on guest room private patios or balconies.
