Saskia and Will are here to help give you the inside track.

All of its nine casitas are strategically located around the island with breathtaking views of the lake. There's a fresh water pool, several terraces, an open kitchen next to the restaurant as well as a yoga platform and a spa.

The casitas are maisonette in style, upstairs there's a private bedroom with a king size bed with large open screen windows with wonderful views of the lake. Downstairs there's the bathroom as well as a spacious living area that leads to the outside deck with an oversized hammock to sit and relax. The Casitas have no air conditioning, just fans but as the temperatures drops at night (being so close to the lake).

During the day, you can either sit and relax by the pool, pamper yourself with any of spa's natural spa treatments, practice yoga, or be more active and participate in any of the daily tours, including a sunrise or sunset kayaking trip, a trek to the Caldera Natural Forest, kayaking all the way to the Mombacho natural hot springs, visits to the Cacao and Plantain plantations, or a Granada City tour to experience the history of this colonial town established in 1524.

Why we love it

The lodge was built with local materials, mostly Rainforest Alliance certified wood and natural stones from the Isletas so the whole concept blends perfectly with its surroundings.
