"My time at Villa Sumaya was the highlight of my trip to Guatemala. Although it was not my first time traveling alone, I never have felt more welcomed by staff and guest. When I feel my patience fading during times of stress, now I close my eyes, picture Villa Sumaya, and remember all that I learned while I was there."

In addition to our majestic location which offers panoramic views of three volcanoes and beautiful Lake Atitlan, we have an experienced and friendly staff that will lovingly cater to you and your students needs. Once you’ve reserved space, we will help you prepare for your retreat with our Welcome Kits.  We can organize your ground transportation to our center,  tours of local villages, Mayan shamanic ceremonies,  a fair-trade market with local artists and fabulous spa treatments. We can even help you register your students for an additional charge.

Villa Sumaya partners with its group leaders by putting your retreat’s description on our website, sending monthly newsletters to our mailing list which will highlight your retreat, posting google ads  listing our center with on-line directories and publicize in Yoga Journal and other trade magazines.

Our efforts to become a “green” center further enhance your experience. We have solar heated pool and hot tub and solar assisted hot-water  for your rooms, vegetable and herb gardens, organic composting and recycling program, as well as a new fruit orchard and food forest in the works.  Villa Sumaya uses as many organic products as possible and participate in local efforts to keep our community clean and green.

Please check out our “Upcoming Retreats” page to view groups coming. We still have openings and one may be just right for you.
