Villa Sumaya, featured in Taschen's Great Yoga Retreats, is an eco oriented, full service, retreat center, and hotel, serendipitously situated on the picturesque shores of Lake Atitlan (at 1,500 ms/4,500 ft ASL). With an uninterrupted vista punctuated only by a skyline of three perfect volcanoes, Villa Sumaya is the ultimate high for romantics and adventurers in search of rest, reflection and ageless natural beauty. Our unpretentious, thatch roofed complexes, have luxurious rooms, private baths and patios. Our property boasts spacious gardens, café/bar, gift shop, hot tub, sauna, and outdoor pergolas that are all set beautifully in the natural surroundings. We specialize in group packages that can accommodate up to 33 guests comfortably and also cater to individuals who want to create their own personal retreat. There are lots of great options! We are located in Santa Cruz la Laguna on Lake Atitlan, in Guatemala, a 15 minute boat ride from Panajachel.See more events in this venue
