Hip Rustic Decor and Cool Surf Vibes Flood This Barefoot-Chic Hotel in Guatemala
Designed by its architect owner, Swell is a fresh take on the area’s traditional aesthetic, with thatched palm roofs, tropical outdoor showers, and colorful textiles handmade by local artisans. It sits on a volcanic black sand beach in El Paredón, the nation’s secret surfing paradise, and oozes bohemian sophistication through every square foot.
Set amidst lush tropical gardens, the hotel’s charming rooms range from a contemporary concrete abode to a delightfully cozy cabanita surrounded by lemon trees. Swim-up suites and thatched bungalows on stilts complete the accommodation choices, while thoughtfully designed communal spaces invite guests to kick back, relax, and socialize in laid-back, creatively styled surroundings.
