It's not often that you find a hotel that is so cozy and charming that you can't help but want to settle in, make it your own and never want to come home. Panza Verde, in Antigua Guatemala, basically fits every single category on my dream list: recreated Spanish Colonial ambiance, private fireplaces, luxurious bathrooms adorned with medieval candelabras, and endless gardens and terraces topped off with charming cupolas. After surveying the city it is definitely one of the best kept secrets in all of Antigua.
For a few days I was able to experience this boutique hotel firsthand and explore every charming corner and capture as much as I can on film to try to recreate the ambiance here for you. There are a few more pictures that I will put up soon and believe it or not there are even more areas to this hotel that are equally stunning.
Pretty much every corner of Antigua begs for resort clothing and I leap at any chance to wear them especially in a warm city that makes you feel transported back in time. Here, you walk around on cobblestone streets with 3 volcanos looming over you (one which was actually smoking) and you see crumbled Spanish architecture weathered from both time and a devastating earthquake.
I'm just hoping time slows down just a little more so I can delay going back to a grey and snowy New York!
