The lake was magical and the venue of Villa Sumaya is perfect for a retreat workshop: The Dance Space was beautiful, the food was delicious, the rooms were very comfortable, and the overall setting and logistics were perfect for...

Villa Sumaya is a magical place…the lake is incredible beautiful, the food is bountiful, fresh, and delicious, and the staff is not not only professional, but also lovely to be around and full of spirit. Wendy is cool, competent, charming and funny. What struck me most about the atmosphere at Villa Sumaya is that it is set up for the... More

From my first arrival, I felt cared for. During my week's stay, I ate delicious food, drank varied and inviting teas. I experienced a friendly and attentive staff and a director whose vision offered us the best of both worlds...a retreat from the world at large and a respectful window into the real lives of the Mayan people who call...

I, and about 14 other women, went to this hotel on the banks of Lake Atitlan for a week of yoga and Art (Soul Collage). This was my first trip to Guatemala, but I had heard many great things from my friends. The staff was so helpful and friendly--the food was healthy and plentiful. I even got my "cat fix"... More

I've led an annual creativity and yoga retreat at Villa Sumaya for the past seven years. This is a magical place! I’ve also led retreats at other retreat centers and Villa Sumaya is the most beautiful, most friendly, best-run retreat center I’ve experienced anywhere. This retreat center was created by a woman who has exquisite artist sensibilities and an uncommon... More

My partner and I live in Antigua, Guatemala and this is our absolute first choice of place to escape to when we can get away for a few days to the lake. Just a few hours in this tranquil oasis and you already feel your heart rate slow down and if I don't sound too New Agey, my aura actually... More

I recently spent a week at Villa Sumaya as part of a writing and yoga retreat. The setting of this retreat center is beautiful and serene. Every room overlooks Lake Atitlan and has its own private patio or outdoor sitting area. The vegetarian meals (with a chicken or fish option for an additional cost) and are delicious and creative. The... More

An amazing retreat Center nestled in the most beautiful surroundings. The staff is there to meet and excede your needs. The accommodations are spotless and beautifully decorated. The food is amazing and plenty of it. The therapist are well rounded in each of their specialities and willing to work very hard to get everyone seen.
