I had such a wonderful time at Villa Sumaya that I just want to share my experience. I’ve been several times over the years and have always enjoyed the great food, the beautiful views, magnificent gardens and the colorful attention to details. I especially appreciate the variety of homemade food specialties ranging from an amazing strawberry ginger kambucha tea to delicious fruit rolls, granola bars and a selection of raw cacao drinks and tasty treats. I even bought the Villa Sumaya e-cookbook to try some of their recipes at home.
This trip I enjoyed private yoga classes and found that the instruction was excellent and the studio space was remarkably bright and inspiring to practice in. I would also recommend the Mayan Ceremony as a very authentic and special experience. The Mayan guide really made it all make sense. Finally I found my room to be comfortable and located with a huge view of the lake. The energy in this place is uplifting and conducive to slowing down… something rather rare and precious in this fast paced world. The staff was very friendly, helpful and able to understand my mixed Spanish and English with a smile. I am looking forward to staying at the Sumaya again someday soon!
