Earth Lodge is an eco-friendly hotel, restaurant, yoga retreat center and organic avocado farm located 7km outside of the UNESCO world heritage city of Antigua, Guatemala. We are an established and popular 10-unit hotel and restaurant that opened in 2004. We host local and international families, couples and groups and we receive many daily restaurant patrons. The lodge is tucked into the side of a hill in the small village of Aldea El Hato, boasting amazing volcano views and a tranquil atmosphere. Earth Lodge holds up-to-date licenses with all local tax, health and environmental agencies. The lodge infrastructure is also fully insured. The total land area is 59,000 meters squared/84,000 varas squared or about 14.5 acres. Asking price is $20.38 USD/vara squared or 1,750,000USD negotiable.
In December 2018 we completed construction on a 1000 square foot, fully equipped yoga studio and have now begun hosting wellness retreats. The studio is by far the largest in the Antigua area and the only retreat center in this area of Guatemala with a fully functioning hotel and restaurant. The Antigua area is an increasingly popular destination for wellness tourism, especially due to its close proximity to Guatemala City and La Aurora International Airport (roughly a 1 hour drive).
We currently have 10 private rooms (all except 1 with private bathrooms) and 3 deluxe camping areas, with space for about 40 hotel guests. Our rooms are comfortable and rustic with amazing views. We are well known for our wood cabins and treehouses, and have reservations months in advance. Some of our rooms are solar powered and we have back- up solar power for the main lodge area in case of a power outage (very rare). We also have a solar panel system set up to sell back to the grid. The lodge has a large green area and playground for kids and visiting families. Because the land is so large, expansion opportunities are endless!!
Our organic avocado orchard has roughly 400 Hass Avocado trees plus there are various fruit trees spread throughout the property. We harvest about 18,000-20,000 pounds of avocados throughout the year, and use them in our restaurant to make our famous guacamole. Earth Lodge's restaurant can seat up to 90 people for retreats or special events, and the kitchen is equipped with industrial stoves, fridges and ovens plus a fully trained local staff. We have hosted several weddings, large retreats and meetings. We hire local workers from the neighboring village of El Hato, which has facilitated a friendly relationship with the villagers
The owner’s residence is a beautiful and private 3-bedroom house perfect for a family or couple. The house has 2 levels, amazing views of the volcanos and valley behind, easy access to the lodge, and a fully equipped kitchen. There are 5 separate staff rooms located behind the kitchen area, and a small 4-bedroom guardian house located above the lodge area. All hotel and staff buildings have been well maintained and recently updated.
