Did you know that Guatemala is neighbor to Belize? We’ve had a number of couples marry in Belize and continue on to Guatemala for their honeymoon! I’ve visited many beautiful places in Guatemala and was looking forward to finally checking out Antigua after hearing so many rave reviews!
Shannon and I were fortunate to take a beautiful trip to Antigua, Guatemala last weekend.
Casa Encantada, just a few blocks south of Antigua’s Central Plaza, offers charming luxury boutique style accommodation with exceptional service. The hotel is surrounded by breathtaking volcano views. Upon entering Casa Encanda at 11:00 we walked through traditional iron and timber Guatemalan door where we were welcomed by Carlos. The entrance is a beautiful and romantic courtyard lit with candles from the entrance to the front front desk. The courtyard which offers a sitting area outside is also glowing with candles. Arriving by day you will enter from the cobblestone streets through the same door and walk through the green garden courtyard accented with Guatemalan white calla lilles . It was easy to relax with the beautiful setting and friendly hospitable staff who speak both English and Spanish. The cozy sitting area with sofas and a fireplace is perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee . The roof top terrace bar is a romantic spot to enjoy a cappuccino or glass of wine watching the sun set or rise.
Casa Encantada is perfect for couples preferring a small, quiet, cozy and intimate setting. Each of the ten rooms is gorgeously decorated with traditional Guatemalan art work, local fabrics, hand carved wood furnishings and wrought-iron beds. Upon check signature bathrobes with handmade Guatemalan Chocolate were placed on the bed. We stayed in the roof top suite our second night. What a special treat! Even the ceiling featured incredible wood working details. The views and privacy were something everyone will appreciate. There is also a room downstairs with stepping stones over a lily pond leading to the room door. At night it’s lite up beautifully with candles around the stones. Check out Casa Encantada online, guests are raving about them and so are we!!
