Aldous Huxley was absolutely rightHuxley considered Atitlan the most beautiful lake in the world. When you find yourself perched on the terrace of Casa Palopo, there is no way you won't agree.
Facing three volcanos and a setting sun, the resort feels unworldly - and with a glass of wine and some french cheese it becomes my idea of heaven. The stunning resort offers many perks you won't find anywhere else on the lake, such as Egyptian cotton sheets and superior bath products. The rooms are large and tasteful with colorful and quirky details, the staff is personable and attentive, and the menu is delicious. Didier and Isabelle, the French couple who run Casa Palopo make you feel at home - as if you are sitting in your own living room -- one with an incredible view. There is a pool and sun deck, even a small gym that all have that view.
Dinner at 6.8 Palopo makes for a wonderfully romantic splurge, whether you are staying at the resort or not. And if you are with a group, make sure you look into the Villa Palopo
