Plantation house turned boutique hotel on a working coffee farm in the highlands outside colonial Antigua
Eco-colonial. The Dalton family’s ancestral home was transformed and enlarged with quality materials and great taste. Gurgling fountains, rugged stone walls and red adobe roofs lend historic charm.
Bed and Bath
The 20 spacious rooms (from 240 to 1,200 square feet) have high beam ceilings, tile floors, working fireplaces and king- or queensize beds fitted with Pratesi sheets and Guatemalan throws. The luxe bathrooms include his-and-hers sinks and antique-tiled showers. Spend mornings on the patio with a cup of the hotel’s coffee prepared with your in-room grinder and French press.
The menu at the stylish Pergaminos restaurant globe-trots with international cuisine. A quarter of the hotel’s land is dedicated to an ecological reserve perfect for outdoor activities, from hiking to mountain biking, jeep trips to mule rides. Also on-site is a gym and, of course, the coffee plantation, where you can join tasters sampling different blends.
In the Area
Take a tour of the resort’s working coffee plantation or explore it via mule ride. The surrounding mountain trails can be explored on foot or mountain bike. Filadelfia’s guides will take you birdwatching to try to spot some of the 170 different species found here. Or you can get up into the trees yourself with a zipline adventure. Be sure to spend at least a day exploring the 16th- and 17th-century churches, convents, monasteries and palaces of nearby Antigua, one of the Western Hemisphere's best-preserved colonial cities. The city's fine art galleries and street markets are among Central America's best places to find locally produced textiles and crafts.
