A charming boutique hotel that caters to those who love relaxing in beautiful places. There are activities as well; hikes, yoga, massages and kayaking for example. You can also visit the other pueblos on the lake where there is amazing shopping! I will definitely be back!

I recently attended a retreat at Villa Sumaya, and it was fantastic! Wendy and her staff are professional, friendly, and helpful, and the property is full of gorgeous nooks and crannies that provide perfect opportunites to embrace the present moment. I especially enjoyed the yoga studio, which is tastefully decorated and overlooks that lake. I highly recommend a personal retreat... More

This was basically like staying at my grandma's house where when I was sad, people would tell me I was made of light and joy, and when there were bugs, someone would come get rid of them for me. What more could you want? But really, it's wonderful. The accommodations are beautiful, the labyrinth of paths and nooks feels like... More

This is not an ordinary hotel or resort property. It is a complete labor of love by its owner to create a healing space on the shore of lake atitlan. The setting draws you into stillness. The fresh, delicious food sites just right. I think it would be nearly impossible to not let your ordinary concerns fall away and settle... More

This was an experience of a life time. Wendy and her staff ensured that my every need was met. They polished and shined me into a new person, and I am leaving this magical world a much more beautiful and nourished soul. I received many body and spirit treatments that were not only wonderful to experience but effective with numerous... More

It was love at 1st sight. When the lancha left my daughter and I off at the dock we were elated. My daughter said to me, ". Mami can you feel it? Is this real or is this a dream? I responded, it's our dream come true. As we stepped on property everything was nothing short of perfect.

I stayed at Villa Sumaya for three days in March as part of a non-profit organization from the US which provides nutritional programs to the indigenous women and children in the surrounding mountainside areas. It was lovely to come "home" to an awesome smoothie, hang time in a hammock, a spa treatment, or just to listen to the waves lapping... More

This is my third year bringing groups to Villa Sumaya for Yoga, meditation, and personal renewal retreats. Once again we were blown away by the beauty, personal attention and fantastic food. From the moment we walked off the boat we were deeply cared for by Wendy and her crew. The rooms were ready with flowers, fresh water and fruit. Wendy... More
