About This Event

Join us on the adventure of a lifetime, as we journey on a 9 day Mayan Discovery Retreat, to one of the world's most beautiful lakes. You will fall in love with the natural beauty of the breathtaking Lake Atitlan and the three majestic volcanoes that surround it.
Our Mayan adventure will begin in gorgeous UNESCO World Heritage city of Antigua. We will spend two nights here. This is a must see destination, full of colonial architecture, cobblestone streets and picturesque surroundings. Our exquisite hotel is close to the city centre, allowing plenty of opportunities for visiting museums, browsing the markets and immersing ourselves in Mayan culture.
For the following seven nights, our home will be a serene wellness eco resort. The resort offers beautifully decorated private rooms, natural lush gardens, sauna, solar heated pool and hot tub and many relaxing places to hide with a good book or just soak in the stunning views from one of the many hammocks.
During our stay we will take part in daily meditation session with Frans from Star Meditations, Australia. We will participate in traditional Mayan ceremonies and explore the culture of the Mayan people. We have a full day tour to Chichicastenango, known for its colourful markets.
This is a very special retreat guaranteed to captivate the imagination and soothe the spirit.

      The Mirror of the Gods

    The mirror of the Gods I have been coming to Villa Sumaya for the past 10 years. I have gotten to know the owner and the employees quite well. Sometime I come with groups two times a year and I will continue coming again and again. Guatemala and Lake Atitlan are magical, the indigenous culture is strong and beautiful, that adds a lot for my group experience. Lake Atitlan is nicknamed The Mirror of the Gods, the name I give it is The Playground of the Gods. It is simply a magnificent location, a slice of paradise that you will fall in love with. Villa Sumaya is a refection of the spirituality and love of the owner for the land and the people. She has created a beautiful retreat center that nurtures your soul and your body. The Tara and Tiger temples are beautiful for any spiritual, yoga practice, The food is vegetarian and delicious, the rooms are perfect for a retreat place, many of them with majestic views of the lake and the volcanoes. The staff is friendly and always ready to help, it is uncommon to find one without a smile on their face. I highly recommend Villa Sumaya for a personal or a group retreat. You will absolutely love it. Ernesto Ortiz

      Villa Sumaya Review

    Villa Sumaya is an incredibly beautiful & unique retreat space . It has been a delight to study and teach here. The staff are incredibly warm, helpful and talented and the temple spaces are inspiring and provide powerful containers for deep work. The rooms and bathrooms and all the spa features, gardens - EVERYTHING is brimming with attention to detail and love of beauty, elegance and colour. It is always such a joy to be at this magical lake!

Thank you!
