I am starting a series of posts about destinations and hotels in order to prepare a nice Summer 2019.
Here is the Swell Surf & Lifestyle boutique hotel in El Paredón, a coastal village in Guatemala. A surfing paradise nestled upon the untouched volcanic black sand beach of the Guatemalan Pacific Coast, this 8-suite hotel is an inspired “barefoot boho-chic” retreat, elegantly designed for laid back travellers with discriminating taste.
Architect Elan Ibghy and designer Marie Bonnefond blend contemporary with rustic, contrasting polished concrete geometry with local craftsmanship, natural wood textures and colourful Guatemalan textiles.
The combination of endless authentic black sand beach, untouched tropical landscapes, and traditional palm thatched architecture, makes El-Paredon possibly one of Guatemala’s most interesting, and least well known, travel destinations.
The early risers might be rewarded by the view of up to 5 inland volcanoes, including the active Fuego volcano.
The contemporary aesthetic of the furniture, designed by the owners themselves and handcrafted by a talented local carpenter, exudes a modern elegance to this main space.
