It was sincerely one of the best places I have ever been in, the people, the food, the view, everything. If you want to have a relaxing and great vacations you should visit Villa Sumaya, I have no words to describe this place you have to go and see it for yourself. I didn't want to leave and definitely I... More

My partner and I work and live in Guatemala and were looking for somewhere to stay for our anniversary, and when Villa Sumaya became an option, we gladly jumped on it! Upon arrival, with our welcome drinks in hand, we were immediately at ease and felt so relaxed to finally have some time to ourselves. We rested in our gorgeous... More

I just returned home from a 6 day yoga retreat at Villa Sumaya. It is a wonderful place to relax and rejuvenate, enjoy nature and the beautiful lake setting. The owner, Wendy, has paid attention to the details of every nook in the entire retreat center and I felt like I was constantly coming upon quaint, beautiful areas to sit... More

This was my fourth trip to Villa Sumaya, and I enjoyed it as much as the ones in previous years. The place itself is magical, the rooms are beautiful, and the food delicious and healthy. The staff are kind and helpful. Additionally, I have enjoyed getting to know other guests at the hotel. As a solo traveler, I appreciated being... More

I've been to Villa Sumaya twice now. Spent a week there in 2012 and another week in April 2015. The best part about staying there is the beautiful energy that has been put into every aspect of the place. One of my favorite parts was the small orientation the owner Wendy gave us. It was clear we had arrived on... More

I travel all over the world and stay in many types of places. Villa Sumaya is one of those rare sanctuaries where the inner and the outer world are in deep harmony. There are many places where attention to detail, beautiful surroundings, good food and service can be found. There are also quite a few sacred places where the inner... More

I dive into the waters. When my head comes up, I see Volcanoes glimmering in the water. Hemmingway called this lake one of the most beautiful in the world. I know why. And the property - from the delicious food, the sweet and friendly staff and the amazing massage I had - was all inviting me into a world of... More

I recently attended a weeklong retreat at Villa Sumaya. I live on the same lake but had never been to the resort. It felt like I had been transported to a tropical paradise far away from the one I call home (just a few villages away). The space is magnificent. The staff genuinely caring not only about the high quality... More

I have hosted 3 week-long retreats at Villa Sumaya and have found the caliber of service, the quality of food and accommodation and the incredible uniqueness of the temple spaces and overall property make this by far, the most exquisite place I have ever run transformational retreats. The staff are so helpful! Personal attention is given to ensure every need... More

I was not here for a yoga retreat but there was a small retreat going on at the same time, which meant like I felt lumped into the masses. As a fairly expensive location for Guatemala, it was sad that we were relegated to the communal buffet-style meals. As a vegan, I was most excited about the food options but... More
