If you know me well, you know that one of the things I love about travelling is finding hidden gems that offer unique experiences, and this time I'm excited to share about not just an Airbnb, but a whole wellness retreat with stunning views in Antigua, Guatemala.

Bosco Antigua is a mesmerizing fusion of Japanese Zen aesthetics and Scandinavian charm, just a 10-15 minutes away from the lively center of the UNESCO World Heritage Site with well-preserved Spanish Baroque-influenced architecture, Antigua. This wellness retreat offers an unparalleled experience of tranquillity, luxury, and rejuvenation in the midst of nature.

Thoughtful Design and Cozy Interiors

The space at Bosco Antigua features two cabins on two levels, each serving a unique purpose. The lower level hosts a well-equipped kitchen/lounge area with large sliding doors opening to a terrace, while the upper level is dedicated to sleeping and relaxation. The cabins seamlessly integrate indoor and outdoor spaces, creating a harmonious environment that promotes a sense of calm and well-being.

The centrepiece of Bosco Antigua is its exquisite Japanese zen-style cabins. From the moment I stepped inside, I felt like I'd entered a realm of thoughtful design and tranquility. These cabins are a unique expression of thoughtful design, combining clean lines, cozy interiors, and meticulous attention to detail. The cabins have been carefully crafted to bring comfort providing guests with a serene escape from the demands of daily life.

Wood-Burning Saunas and Signature Spa Treatments

One of the highlights of Bosco Antigua is its signature spa experience. I indulged in the ultimate relaxation with a private wood-burning Finnish sauna, a mountain-water plunge pool, and an invigorating outdoor shower. It was like being transported to a private paradise, where the stress of the world melted away, and all that remained was a sense of rejuvenation. This exclusive spa retreat can be booked during your stay, offering a one-of-a-kind experience that is both relaxing and rejuvenating.

Unwinding after the spa treatment

The cabins at Bosco Antigua are surrounded by lush greenery, allowing guests to unwind to the soothing sounds of the forest. The retreat brings the concept of inside/outside living to glorious extremes, allowing you to connect with nature on a profound level. Whether you're lounging on the terrace or practicing yoga on the elevated deck, the natural beauty of the Fuego and Acatenango volcanoes provides a breathtaking backdrop.

Eco-Friendly Property

Bosco Antigua is committed to sustainability, using fresh mountain water without chemicals or chlorine for all water on the property, including drinking water (filtered), and even the soap and shampoo were 100% organic, natural, and artisanal. The retreat's commitment to creating a green and meditative environment surrounded by nature allows visitors to experience the beneficial effects of contact with plants and the surrounding forest. Frankly, it felt good to be part of an eco-friendly escape.
