Posada del Angel, Antigua

Renowned for its private ambience, the boutique hideaway of Posada del Ángel has long been a favourite of some of the world’s biggest names, hosting Presidents and celebrities alike. Flawless service and a homely charm have created a space bursting in character and elegance whilst the seven suites, allow it all at once to be exclusive – yet never pretentious. Handwoven textiles and winding flagstone staircases bring that hint of tradition from the city, whilst fragrances individually crafted by a local alchemist add that all-important sense of wonder to make a stay at Posada del Angel truly irresistible.


Amid the historical charm of La Antigua, the Guatemalan capital that doubles as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its well-preserved Spanish Baroque-influenced architecture, Posada del Angel perfectly captures the city in a hotel. Just an hour’s drive from La Aurora Airport, you’ll be stepping into this cultural city in no time.


Each of the seven rooms is decorated with the colourful textiles and hand-carved hardwood furniture typical of Guatemala and are arranged to sit around the Posada’s colonial courtyard and library. The Rose Master Suite is our pick of the pack with stunning views of the city’s rooftops and surrounding volcanoes from its private roof terrace. Every room offers welcome respite though, with wood burning fireplaces and antique four-poster beds, perfect for falling back into at the end of a busy day.


Whilst Guatemala may not be an obvious pick for honeymooners, the bouquets and flickering candles placed of Posada del Angel go to show just how romantic a destination it can be. Retreat to the open-air courtyard living room for a fireside hot chocolate or hideaway on the rooftop patio to await spectacular sunrise breakfasts and we’re sure it’ll convince you too.
