This is a beautiful place with fantastic organic food and a kind and responsive staff. It overlooks Lake Atitlan and volcanos. it is NOT warm - we often had fleeces on as it is 5K feet. I had an mnazing suite that was sumptuous. Lovely side trips, great leaders, especially the Fire Ceremonny with Tomas - don't miss it. Others enjoyed the sweat lodge too.

I stayed at Villa Sumaya for a week with a private tour. The rooms were very comfortable, the food was amazing - every day, every meal. The staff were all chill and helpful and the amenities were so unique from a Mayan fire ceremony to ancestral massage. I highly recommend this spot for your next spiritual retreat.

I stayed at Villa Sumaya for a solo trip (initially, then a friend joined me because I raved about the beauty of the place so much!). The place is beautiful and peaceful, the staff are incredibly kind and helpful, the garden is magical, the pool and hot tub help unwind and the access and view of the lake makes you feel very special. It is a perfect secluded place to relax, I would go back in a heartbeat.

Setting: Absolutely paradisiacal. Went in March, the dry season, on the altoplano, no mosquitos! Yet with all the feeling of a lush tropical place with ample greenery, flowers, and birdsong. Perfect temperature, almost bizarrely perfect temperature, never sweated, never needed a jacket. Actually presents better than it photographs. Absolutely gorgeous and meticulously maintained gardens. Lovely rooms, many had their unique flavor, all well sited to give you privacy. All yoga areas had amazing views and just felt relaxing and beautiful. Lots of little seating areas scattered around, you will always find a serene private place for yourself. Lovely resident dogs and cat. Santa Cruz is a little sleepy down-to-earth town with great views, a nice, reasonable, scenic walk away (2 methods: seaside or gardenside) Wifi (if necessary): Perfectly fine if you stay close to the office, there is a lovely seating area at the Apothecary for that, though I will admit most people weren't using it which may have made it faster for me. Enough to listen in on a Zoom if not participate in it with video. Not being very strong in the rooms is good for digital detox. Food: Excellent, and inspiring to those considering vegetarianism. Service: Outstanding, each and every staff person encountered. For the contractors, I did a solo retreat so only had personal yoga classes and bodywork, cannot speak about the ceremonies, and had good experiences with all. Very much enjoyed deep tissue massage with Robert. I've travelled a lot and like variety and novelty, but I said to myself at the end of the week, I need to come back here. It is a very special place. Rm 10: Topmost bunglalow, you'll get a daily calf exercises getting up there, but nice view and feels very private, no one can see you up there. After walking around, I don't really think there are any bad rooms and that they are accurately in the website.

Very special place with stunning views of the volcanos. Friendly, helpful , bilingual staff. The rooms are very unique . Our bed was so comfortable, I had a hard time leaving it. After having a deep tissue massage with Dina I felt like a new person. We had a chance to meet the owner who is a beautiful person inside out. Can't wait to be back!

My partner and I visited Villa Sumaya over the New Year and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. When it was time to check out, I tried to think of any suggestion of improvement or complaint I might have, but I honestly could not come up with anything. The location was exactly what we had been looking for. Close enough to walk to Santa Cruz, but still quiet and serene, right on the water. The staff was wonderful - incredibly communicative before we arrived and beyond helpful the entire time we were there. Gorgeous views and community spaces. Perhaps the biggest highlight, however, was the food. Absolutely delicious! I looked forward to every single meal. I cannot recommend Villa Sumaya enough. I would love to return one day for another retreat.

Perfect hotel and venue for a yoga retreat. The hotel has all the amenities needed for yoga and meditation, plus the food was delicious! The Atitlan setting is gorgeous, the volcanos and the lake are beautiful. The hotel staff is really great.

We first visited VIlla Sumaya in Nov 2019 for a lunch and afternoon visit. We reserved a week for 2020 on the spot and after delaying our trip last year, Were able to finally experience this beautiful place last week for private retreat. As we settled in and explored, we were quite taken by the exquisite attention given to every detail from the beautiful stonework to the lighting throughout and so much more. the meals were the highest quality in the vegetarian culinary world. my partner and I have both participated in numerous retreats through the years and we've never tasted fruit like this. cannot wait to use the recipes in the cookbook. I loved getting up first thing and going to the yoga platform overlooking the lake for my morning practice and my partner found various beautiful spots for his morning meditation. at least three or four nights here will certainly be a part of our future travels to this beautiful part of the world.

It is a gorgeous property. Very well maintained. The employees and helpful and friendly. They go out of their way to make your stay special. I don't eat vegan or vegetarian, but i always found something I enjoyed. I was on a retreat, so yoga was provided. I am not into "star reading" or some of their treatments, but I didn't have to take them. I did a seat lodge and cocoa ceremony< I wasn't into the "higher order" of them but liked the experience. The location is wonderful. The lake spectacular. I particularly enjoyed visiting the villages, and trying the hot chocolate.

I chose to book a personal 1:1 retreat with one of the healers. My experience was so incredible from start to finish. I have never stayed at a retreat center or done anything like this before, and I felt so comfortable and welcomed here as a solo female traveler. The wonderful booking staff helped me customize my entire trip over email by recommending the perfect room for me, arranging my shuttle from the airport, and keeping me up to date on covid rules and restrictions. Due to visiting during the low season (September) and during the pandemic, it turned out that I was their only guest for the week! The staff made me feel so welcome and safe, and completely open to use all of the facilities on site. I spent my retreat week doing 2 sound healings and/or meditations per day. During my off time, I simply wandered the beautiful grounds, used the pool and solar hot tub, paddleboarded on the lake, and hung out with the cute dogs and cats on the property. I only left the property twice in my 9 days there. The serenity and peace that I found during this visit was remarkable. I am rather afraid of insects and should mention that while some insects are around at night, I did not have issues with any entering my room. The staff does make themselves available to remove any insects as needed! I also ate all of my meals at Villa Sumaya, and did not have any stomach issues at all during or after my trip - which as I understand is not common for visitors to Guatemala ;) So much love and care has been put into this retreat center, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I am already dreaming of returning with friends or a retreat group. Thank you Villa Sumaya!
