Designed to satisfy the needs and desires of the most discerning traveler to Lake Atitlan, B´alam Ya is located between Panajachel and Santa Catarina Palopo. Each of the four villas nestles the lakeside or the hillside among tropical gardens and offer unobstructed views of the lake and surrounding volcanoes. Each villa is equipped with cooking and dining appliances, allowing guests to bring and prepare their own food. Alternatively, a personal shopping service is available where B’alam Ya staff will fully stock your refrigerator before check-in. Guests can also choose to enjoy the luxury of a private chef who will prepare a gourmet meal in the comfort of their villa. Guests are encouraged to enjoy the complimentary kayaks, canoes, sculling shells, numerous outdoor lounge areas and swimming and snorkeling areas. Take a siesta in a secluded hammock, experience the sunset from your private dock, watch the abundant bird life from a private corner in the tropical garden, meditate on the lakeside, do yoga while listening to rhythmic waves, or enjoy a relaxing outdoor massage on your private terrace. The magic of the lake is everywhere.
