I took a yoga retreat at the Villa Sumaya and it blew my mind! It was the most beautiful retreat center i have ever seen....and i've traveled a great deal. Laurie Ellis Young led the retreat and had lived on Lake Atitlan for many years. She is amazing and so is Wendy the owner of the Villa Sumaya. THE FOOD IS WONDERFUL, the facilities are fabulous, even the hot tub is super hot!!! I loved the dog Chongo and the beds were super comfy. I will return next year for Laurie's 2009 Breathe the Change retreat in February.
