A Picturesque Retreat Center Located on the Shores of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala




"Villa Sumaya is one of those few places that you can go and finally let go of trying to get more of what you don't need. It is in this oasis of calm that I find I can use all the surrendered energy to make a difference with what I do have and with what I am. I find that there is a moment when I can just get a glimpse of Lake Atitlan as you head toward Panajchel that I start to get really excited, joy-full, like a little kid!!! The whole time there is an experience that you'll never forget or regret."
