The town of Senahu is the administrative center of the Municipio of Senahu in the Department of Alta Verapaz in Guatemala.

The community was founded by Kekchi Mayan refugees from a series of 19th century conflicts in the Ishi Mountains of Central Guatemala. By the mid 1870s, it had become a center of German settlement in Guatemala and a major source of coffee for the European market. In 2000 the estimated population was 3,000. Senahu is at the center of a region growing fine coffee.

Each year at the end of August a festival of San Antonio de Padua celebrating native peoples is held here. The festivities include a beauty contest for Kekchi Native American women, the winner of which is crowned with the title "Miss Senahuk'".
