Welcome to Regis Hotel & Spa

Situated just 500 meters from the lakeshore of Lake Atitlán, one of the most breathtaking places, we welcome you to discover the essence of relaxation at Regis Hotel & Spa. Since welcoming our first guests over a half century ago, the hotel has served as a tranquil oasis in the heart of Panajachel.

Amidst our beautifully landscaped botanical gardens and enjoy panoramic views of a trio of knife-edged volcanoes - San Pedro, Toliman, and Atitlán - that drop dramatically into the crystalline waters of Lake Atitlán. Immerse yourself in the healing, volcanic mineral-enriched waters of our natural thermal Jacuzzi, the only hotel spa of its kind in Panajachel, Sololá. Just beyond our doors, diverse dining, shopping, and recreational activities beckon you to join the friendly locals at play. Take pleasure in the exhilarating pursuits and cuisine that have transformed "Pana" from an out-of-the-way backpacker’s town into an upscale vacation retreat.

La Cueva Maya, or “The Maya Cave”

Distance:: 15 kms From Hotel
Regis Hotel & Spa

From here, the view of Panajachel, Guatemala and Lake Atitlán is impossibly beautiful. The cave still serves as a ceremonial site for those who practice indigenous religions in the Maya village’s uphill from town. Smoky and filled with the fragrance of incense, the mysterious site can be reached via a short local bus ride from town, and a short scenic hike

Panajachel Marketplace

Distance:: 1 km From Hotel
Regis Hotel & Spa

While Calle Santander is lined with shops selling everything from beaded jewelry to fresh Guatemalan coffee, more authentic goods can be found in the Artisan Market. This is where you’ll find vibrantly colored hammocks, local crafts and artwork, and handmade peasant dresses, sombreros, and purses all adorned in brilliantly hued Mayan dyes. And remember that haggling is a way of life when shopping in Guatemala.

Casa Cakchiquel

Distance:: 5 blocks From Hotel
Regis Hotel & Spa

Built in 1948, Casa Cakchiquel was one of the first hotels on the lake and according to legend, Ernesto "Che" Guevara, Ingrid Bergman, and other intellectuals, artists, and writers enjoyed the house in its heyday. Today the house has been restored and features a fair trade store, rotating exhibits, and a vintage photo and postcard gallery.

Museo Lacustre

Distance:: 5 blocks From Hotel
Regis Hotel & Spa

For a brief history of Lake Atitlán and its people, head to the Museo Lacustre de Atitlán. Here you'll find a handful of informative displays tracing the history of the region back to pre-colonial times.

Reserva Natural Atitlán

Distance:: 10 kms From Hotel
Regis Hotel & Spa

Hike the trail that loops through a small river canyon, crossing suspension bridges and passing a butterfly atrium and enclosures of spider monkeys and coatimundis. For the more adventurous, the complex contains a zip-line tour, where you glide through the forest canopy courtesy of a series of cables, a helmet, and a very secure harness. There's also a private beach for a bit of post-adrenaline rush relaxation.

Boating

Distance:: 1 km From Hotel
Regis Hotel & Spa

5- to 6-hour boat tours depart in the morning and make stops in San Pedro La Laguna, Santiago de Atitlán, and San Antonio Palopó. As soon as the boat lands in each town, you'll be met by local touts and tour guides offering to show you around. For example, in Santiago de Atitlán, they offer to take you to see Maximón; in Santa Catarina Palopó, they'll take you to see some weaving.

Fishing

Distance:: 1 km From Hotel
Regis Hotel & Spa

You can experiment fishing for non-native mojarra (black bass) by contacting one of the local tour agencies, or simply heading down to the waterfront docks.

Paragliding

Distance:: 5kms From Hotel
Regis Hotel & Spa

Get a bird's-eye view of the lake and volcanoes from in a tandem rig departing from several different takeoff points on the volcanic hillsides surrounding Lake Atitlán

Scuba Diving

Distance:: 1km From Hotel
Regis Hotel & Spa

Experience the rush of high-altitude freshwater diving, which is slightly more challenging than open-water diving at sea level. Most dives take place in 30- to 35-feet of water, and on a particularly clear day, you might see underwater ruins and relics, as well as volcanic steam vents. Certification courses are also offered. Remember that because of altitude and decompression, divers must stay in the area for at least 18 hours after diving.

Off Road Tours

Distance:: 3kms From Hotel
Regis Hotel & Spa

The rugged back roads and mountain trails around Lake Atitlán are well suited to two-wheel travel, whether by mountain bike or off-road motorcycle. Several tour operators and a couple of rental agencies offer guided tours.
