The property is a gem with day trips for hikes and shopping to the villages a fun boat ride away. The grounds are spectacular and the staff make you feel tended to but never smoothered. Juan Carlos and the entire team are exceptional. Who knew Guatamala was such a delightful escape.

What a beautiful experience Casa Prana is! The grounds are beautiful and full of charm. The exotic flowers, birds, and trees are just beautiful. I can not say enough about how beautiful the property is. We stayed in the luxury suite and it was straight out of a magazine! :) The staff was so gracious and really attended to our every need. The general manager was the best host ever. He was always available to make our experience better. I can not say enough about this place. It is truly a gem.

I can’t say enough good things about this place. I’ll start off with how gorgeous this place is. Waking up to gorgeous Lake atitlan and the many birds, gardens and sights is indescribable. We stayed at the Prana suite which has the most amazing balcony/view. Sauna, gym, wellness center, volleyball / ping pong table / pool table ... you name it, this place has it all! Now let’s talk about the service. These guys are on point! We communicated via with Juan Carlos via WhatsApp to requests food, drinks and even a couple massage and they had everything ready in literally seconds. Greg, my fiancé asked, last minute, for surprise roses /candles to surprise me and they did not disappoint. The room was adorned with candles, red roses and multiple Red flowers. This place is definitely one of the most expensive places on Lake Atitlan but in my opinion, with every penny. Thank you to the entire staff for making us feel welcomed and pampered.

Entering the gates of Casa Prana is like entering into Paradise; It is something unique about this place. More than the beauty of the nature and the hotel itself it is also the energy there. You feel welcome and that you've entered at a place filled with love. The tropical garden with butterflies, birds and wonderfully smelling flowers leads you through the gates and up to the hotel .The hotel itself is so tastefully decorated; beautiful and elegant, but still charming and cosy, and all the candles in every room underlines this feeling. I had the pleasure of trying out several different rooms; all so unique and well decorated. One had an incredible bathtub with the view of the lake and one of the volcanoes. It was the most amazing feeling having a bath from there , while watching the sunset, after a long day in the sun. All the rooms had really good beds and I slept like a baby every night; falling a sleep to the jungle sounds and waking up to the birds singing the most beautiful serenades. The employees at Casa Prana all seem very proud to work there and they treat you with such a kindness. Even the cleaning lady gives you the most beautiful smile when you pass her, and she makes sure your room always have fresh flowers. My entire stay they all paid attention that I had everything I needed at any time. That leads me to the food; I thought maybe it would be difficult getting food that pleased me as I have a lot of allergies, but this turned out not to be a problem at all. They served me the most delicious food and facilitated every request I had. The fruit and vegetables were so fresh and tasteful, and everything was so beautifully prepared with edible flower decorations. I did also try some of the traditional food and it was so delicious I ended up ordering it several times. Everything I tried on the menu was yummy. Very yummy !! I mostly had my lunch at the pool. Sitting by the beautiful pool, surrounded by flowers and singing birds, with the view of the lake having lunch was one of my favorite moments of the day. They also have a great yoga studio and gym in the middle of the jungle, with view of the lake and the volcanoes . It was truly an amazing place to work out. Staying at Casa Prana , experiencing its beauty , the friendly people working there and feeling in harmony with the power full nature left me with such an amazing feeling inside. I am truly grateful for my experience and will for sure return shortly.

Casa Prana is in my opinion one of the best places to stay when visiting Guatemala. With a beautiful view of the lake, spacious bedrooms, a well equipped gym (and yoga studio), a wonderful pool area and tasty food (they easily accommodate for vegans like me, which I was really happy about). The staff was very helpful, and always working with a smile on their face. They take Covid seriously, and follow all the protocols, which made me as a guest feel very safe.
