Villa Sumaya – Lake Atitlan, Guatemala (

We are smitten with restorative adventures to exotic destinations, surrounded by nature where we can align with our highest selves. This eco-chic gem, located on a gorgeous lake with a view of two beautiful (inactive) volcanos was just what we were looking for, as we took part in a sacred women’s retreat with Dr. Deb Kern (

Along with Deb’s mind-blowing/heart-opening retreat program that including daily dancing, yoga, and so much more, we also partook in Mayan rituals, like a beautiful Mayan cacao ceremony led by the Villa Sumaya staff.

We enjoyed incredible vegetarian cuisine for “eco-epicureans”, served at the sound of a happy bell, three times daily. Expectations were highly exceeded with the astonishing array of fresh/flavorful Mayan-inspired cuisine – truly delicious and so lovingly prepared. And, we savored sublime spa treatments with some of the most gifted, healing practitioners anywhere in the world.

We loved it so much, we are returning for Dr. Deb’s next retreat at Villa Sumaya, this coming October.
