Secluded and tranquil lakeside lodge with stylish modern décor and decked relaxation areas overlooking the lagoon.

The secluded Villa Maya lodge is on the shores of the tranquil Lake Petén, 45 minutes' drive from the majestic Mayan site of Tikal, and 10 minutes' drive from the nearest town of Flores.

The bright and modern rooms sit within octagonal blocks or cabins, each with ceiling fan, private bathroom and small balcony with lake views. In keeping with the tranquil atmosphere, there is no phone or TV.

Facilities include an attractive swimming pool (with a smaller plunge pool), thatched restaurant and a bar overlooking the lake.

Guests can hire kayaks and mountain bikes to explore the many well-marked tracks around the property.

Our Expert's Opinion

Secluded lodge-style hotel, surrounded by vivacious birdlife and wildlife on the edge of Petenchel Lagoon. Picturesque setting. A good choice for families.
