Villa Sumaya

Villa Sumaya was designed to be a world-class retreat spa center.  You will be awed by its beauty.

This exotic paradise in the heart of the Guatemalan highlands is situated on the shores of the beautiful and sacred Lake Atitlán

 This elegant yoga retreat, surrounded by lush tropical flora, offers magnificent lake views and features a healing spa and pool and healthy, organic, gourmet cuisine made with fresh, locally grown ingredients.  (And, by the way, you can buy the Villa Sumaya cookbook.)

 The near-by volcanoes, sacred ground, and colorful historic Mayan villages, create a fascinating experience not found anywhere else.  Truly food for the soul

Yoga aside, come by yourself or come as a couple, this is an ideal place to be with compatible friends and to be at peace. But deepen your yoga at the same time!

When you return home you will feel more centered, more balanced and be revitalized and refreshed.

I will teach a Yoga class each morning and evening.  The evening class will also include Yoga Nidra.  There is no requirement for you to attend any of these.

In addition, enjoy the magic of each day with optional activities.  Choose from:

  • Swimming
  • Kayaking
  • Diving
  • Zip-lining
  • Waterskiing
  • Boat rides around Lake Atitlan

  • Hiking the San Pedro Volcano
  • Climbing El Pico del Cielo
  • Guided village tours
  • Healing arts including a wide variety of massage, (encouraged for deep restoration and healing. 
Meson Panza Verde (our 1st night. . . 7th)

Antigua Guatemala was the cultural, economic, religious, political and educational center for the entire region until the capital was moved in 1773. The pattern of straight lines established by the grid of north-south and east-west streets and inspired by the Italian Renaissance, is one of the best examples in Latin American town planning

Antigua Guatemala contains living traces of Spanish culture with its principal monuments, built in the Baroque style of the 18th century preserved today as ruins. The city’s Baroque-style monumental buildings and ruins have survived along with cobblestone streets, plazas with fountains, and domestic architecture. .Antigua has some magnificent examples of colonial Barroco antigueño architecture in the Americas.

In Antigua you will stay in Meson Panza, a boutique hotel established in 1986 as the first Luxury Boutique Hotel and Restaurant (European style) in Antigua.  offering unique rooms and exceptional cuisine. Meson Panza Verde has been selected as a Fodor´s Choice Establishment. The restaurant has received many awards.

If Meson Panza fills we will use another similar luxury boutique hotel nearby.
