It was beautiful. The staff was very helpful at all times of the day. The food was amazing and plentiful. Our yoga room was quiet, restful and just...

But luckily Villa Sumaya had...

I learned very quickly at Villa Sumaya how to slow down and relax, and it was just what I needed. No worries, no stress, no decisions to make- except maybe what to wear for dinner! I so appreciated all the well thought out tours that were made available and the knowledgeable local guides provided along with the tour. My intention...

I just got back from a 1-week stay at Villa Sumaya and cannot recommend it highly enough. Villa Sumaya is a gem; the setting in Lake Atitlan is breathtaking, the accommodations are beautiful and the food is amazing - the only downside is that the food is so good that you eat too much of it :) I had massages...
