5 nights in Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
Mon Jan 04 - Sat Jan 09, 2016
Eco-chic Hotel, Slow Food Restaurant & Lodge - Isla Verde is a garden of delights that features yoga & massage facilities and a big space for events on the lake front with hammocks and bean bags to relax. Come and enjoy what according to many - Rough Guide amongst others- is some of the best food you can find in Guatemala.
Sunrise, sunset, midday, or midnight, Isla Verde's lakeside lounge is the perfect place to sunbathe, go swimming, sip on a cocktail or a fresh fruit smoothie, or just take in the majestic beauty of Lake Atitlan. Prefer a more secluded private spot? You´ll find hammocks and loungers tucked into lush nooks all throughout this beautiful tropical garden, and a wonderful yoga studio overlooking the lake which is free for guests to enjoy.
Isla Verde's cabins are set on a hillside, which ensures every single one has a breathtaking view of Lake Atitlan, while being hidden and private from the rest of the hotel. Rooms are decorated in a simple, yet hip style with Mayan woven materials and naif paintings. The bathrooms will seduce you with their natural feel; bamboo, stone and a variety of tropical plants growing up through the ceilings.

Lacey was born and raised in a small quaint town on the eastern most tip of Long Island; Montauk. Living within a 5 minute walk from the ocean stemmed her irresistible love for the water (Surfing and free-diving are among some of her favorite water sports.) The cold winters in Montauk ultimately forced her away to a more tropical paradise; Hawaii.
Currently, she resides on the small island of Oahu. Being surrounded by fresh fruits and vegetables that are grown locally makes her vegan lifestyle simple. Lacey is passionate about consuming a plant based diet without the use of any animal products. She spends her time running a blog intended to educate others on food and lifestyle choices and how they affect our health, other beings and our planet.
Along with the ocean and mother nature, Lacey had always had a love for holistic healing, energy and exercise. In 2012, she went through intensive training to become a certified Pilates instructor via Power Pilates, NYC. In 2013, she attended the largest holistic nutrition school in the country, Institute for Integrative nutrition, where she was taught over hundreds of dietary theories and life methods. With her Health Coaching degree and Pilates certification she began taking on clients personally and globally via e-mail. During this time, she came across yoga. With Shirshasana (headstands) being what sparked her yoga love affair, she decided to give the entire sequence a try. It was love as first asana. Lacey began to dive deep into spirituality through yoga, which only enhanced her practice and daily life.
One year later, she decided to follow her passions on another healing journey to Bali, Indonesia to become a certified yoga instructor. During this course, she was taught the true foundation of yoga that extends beyond the physical practice. She developed an understanding of the mind-body connection, meditation and enlightenment - a learning journey that made the trip a life-changing experience. After completing her 200 hour YTT in Bali, she returned back to her home in Hawaii. Lacey has now added yoga to her healing practice. She teaches all classes from static yin, to hatha, to fast paced vinyasa flows. She specializes in private lessons by creating personal sequences for individuals. Lacey has always held bio-individuality - the concept that every person is uniquely different - above all. She personalizes her 1:1 health coaching, pilates lessons and yoga lessons to fit the individual at hand.
Isla Verde is set in one of the most quiet, safest, and well-preserved corners of Lake Atitlan, in Santa Cruz La Laguna. While lounging in our lakeside garden you will feel worlds away from the commotion of everyday life. There are no roads, no traffic, and no public dock near us, only lake breezes, birds singing, and occasional hikers passing by on the footpath. Our location affords you the classic lake vista of volcanoes looming over the water, plus direct access to one of the safest, most scenic walks around the lake. Isla Verde offers the perfect mix of seclusion and accessibility. Stay here in our sanctuary and enjoy the activities offered at Isla Verde, or use it as a great jumping-off place to explore the lake. There is frequent boat service to the other lake communities, and the hotel is easily-reached from the main transportation hub of Panajachel.
