Guatemala’s Casa Palopo has compeletely redone it pool deck and here's the scoop. In keeping with the property's rustic chic vibe, the re-do involved new custom mosaic tiling inside the solar-heated pool and the addition of a wooden deck and backsplash. In fact, there's been an overall expansion of the entire space, where VIPs can now catch rays and take in the views of Lake Atitlan and its volcanoes from outdoor daybeds and lounge chairs. Sweet!

Casa Palopo’s pool is adjacent to the hotel’s Balinese-inspired boutique spa, opened earlier this year, and the 6.8 Palopo restaurant.

Located 90 miles from Guatemala City, Casa Palopo is a "modern chic" villa resort on the hills surrounding Santa Catarina Palopó village, on the shores of Lake Atitlan.

Exclusive Touch: There are only nine rooms here. Seven of the rooms are located in one building while a two-bedroom villa is located in the hills. The rooms all come with either a patio or a balcony, depending on whether the room is located on the first floor or not.
