Definitely the best place to stay in Petén when visiting the local destinations. Rooms are very comfy and spacious. The food, which happen to be amazing, is catered upon guest preferences. Lorena the owner, the staff and everyone involved in the hotel are super friendly and kind. I can´t stress enough about how nice and peaceful Nitun is.

Nitun is a lodge like no other and we have been to a few! Great homely hospitality, great mix with the jungle nature, great food yet local food and cuisine, surrounded by great birds (colibris...) and pets, also a nice touch of civilization although not too much to rest and mingle with guests. To a certain extent, Nitun has quite...

Upon entering the game premises I felt as though I had always known the proprietors. I can't explain what it is -- perhaps it's the chef who caters the meals to my preferences or the welcoming, spotless accommodations. Lounging in he dining area when the downpour hits is one of the most peaceful memories I have. I am definitely returning!

We had the privilege of meeting Lorena (the owner) and Arturo and eating dinner at Ni'tun for two nights while we stayed at the adjacent property of Bolontiku resort. At the time we booked at Bolontiku, we were unaware of Ni'tun and very much regret that we did not stay at this property instead. We were lucky to stumble upon...

We had a tremendous stay at N'tun. From the welcome by Lorena and her great vegetarian meals to the tours she arranged including one by Bernie, we had a great time. Swimming in the lake was fantastic and it is just a boat ride across the lake to Flores. The rooms were good and in all a unique place to...

How fortunate we were to discover this fantastic place! Upon our arrival, my husband and I were cheerfully greeted by the owner Lorena, and escorted to our quarters by Arturo who was so helpful and accommodating throughout our 4-night stay at Nitun. The Hummingbird Suite was just what we had hoped for . . . close contact with the outdoors...

We stayed at Ni'tun before going to Tikal, which was perfect as we were taught so much more about the culture and history of Guatemala at Ni'tun. The staff cooked us spectacular meals which were served with style. We stayed in the lovely Hummingbird Suite - a cottage with beautiful floors, weavings, furniture, bathroom, and view of the lake. The...

We spent 3 nights at Nitun and really enjoyed it. It's in breathtaking surroundings on the lake in the jungle and is incredibly peaceful. It's best accessed by boat - return transfer by boat to Flores is included in the price - and it's really magic approaching it from the lake. The room was spacious and very comfortable and the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ni'tun is a small Guatemalan boutique lodge located within our own private reserve on the shores of beautiful Lake Peten Itza. We offer personal service, friendly staff, knowledgeable guides, drivers and tour operators. Kayaking is a must. We pride ourselves as being passionate about our cuisine. Local ingredients are used in our fusion meals. All itineraries are tailored and many destinations in the area can be visited. It is a peaceful spot to relax and be immersed in nature. Favorite amongst guests is chatting over dinner with other travelers and us, the owners. We are far away and near enough Flores island and we operate our tours and expeditions privately to the main sites, both for one-day tours as for longer camping expeditions throughout Peten, Belize, Honduras and Mexico. Collective tours to Tikal also available. Our main aim is to share our culture with travelers and to support sustainable activities that involve local communites as well as protected areas. Through low impact eco tourism, we are able to support our conservation projects. ... more   less
