Rejuvenate your mind, body and spirit with a spa service, or sample sumptuous fare at Elù Restaurant and Lounge, with its imaginative cuisine, impressive wine list, and awe-inspiring outdoor terrace.


El Convento Boutique Hotel’s 26 suites are in honor of notable colonial characters from Guatemala’s rich history and nearby picturesque towns. Most suites flow from a central courtyard graced by a hundred year old Tempixque tree. No two suites are exactly the same; all are lovingly appointed with relaxing neutral tones, meticulously chosen furnishings and unique local touches including fine art, sculpture, and hand-woven textiles. Some boast private gardens, cedar-beamed ceilings, and outdoor Jacuzzis, and even the smallest suite offers more than 570 square feet of space.

Bathrooms are elegant and marble-accented; many include rain showerheads, exposed stone walls, and natural skylights. Towel warmers and deluxe L’Occitane bath products complete the luxurious atmosphere. Natural décor, fireplaces, and handcrafted doors are balanced with modern touches including Wi-Fi and 42-inch flat-screen TVs with cable.
