This is an amazing location, set against a mountain of lush, green vegetation, looking out over Lake Atitlan and the three volcanoes that make up the "triangle of fire." We swam in the lake, ate delicious food prepared with skill and love, were well taken care of by Wendy and her amazing crew, and were re-centered with the help of... More

Villa Sumaya once again outdid themselves in providing a great venue for 10 days of Silent Meditation with Sensei and Catherine leading us ever deeper on the spiritual path. It is truly a blessing to be in their presence and use their guidence to move you forward. The food, rooms and service were excellent as always.
