The space

Find your slice of paradise at the most beautiful lake in the world in the heart of the Mayan world:

The property also can be rented just as separate ensuite rooms. Look for Sanctuary Retreat Private Ensuite 1 & 2 for availability. The house is split in 2 halves with a courtyard separating the bedrooms from the living room & kitchen.


A comfortable, bright and spacious bedroom with queen bed and divine ensuite mosaic bathroom, uniquely tiled with domed ceiling and solar-powered shower. The bedroom opens to an ample terrace with breathtaking views of the lake and volcanoes, complete with sun loungers and hammock.

A very large covered second terrace "lounge". Designed for group retreats, yoga practice, or just an outdoor lounge and dining area with hammocks.


A second larger bedroom also with an ensuite bathroom and solar-heated power shower with bath is available for larger groups upon request.

A large eat-in kitchen with all modern appliances and large 6 ring-burner stove connecting to a spacious living room with dining table to sit up to 8 and a sofa area that can sleep one other person. Everything you need to cater for yourself including a fire place.

A third separate guest toilet and sink especially for retreats or workshops is also available.

The house is set amidst a tropical garden growing a variety of medicinal plants, herbs, lettuces, berries, bananas and coffee. A new 6-person traditional Mayan temascal/sauna and outdoor shower completes the property so you can retreat under the stars.

The Sanctuary is a gorgeous space with many amenities- definitely enjoyed our time here! The property is very well kept, and there are amazing views of the lake. The kitchen is fully stocked, with all of the equipment and tools we could've possibly needed. Overall, a wonderful experience.

Lagos de Atitlan is a super beautiful place on pachamama to dream, play & rest.. Amaraminta was a warm host and very welcoming... The house has a sweet view of Volcano Pedro... It is on the main road just coming in to San Marcos from San Pablo... a 5min walk into town.. For us, the space didn't work.. the road noise was a bit too strong for us from the tuk tuks.. And the house is all separate rooms around a courtyard setting.. so you need separate keys to access each room all the time.. for us, we were wanting a different experience.. so we only stayed 2 nights of our planned 2weeks here.. We got lucky and we found alternate accomm.. that suited our needs/prayer.. Amarinta was as helpful as she could be to help us enjoy the magic of the lagos and all its medicines... and we loved this part of the world... We were wanting a place to really rest

Wie waren 3 Wochen im Haus von Araminta, es war wunderbar, tolle Aussicht, viel Platz und mit viel Liebe eingerichtet. Die Leute waren unkomplizert und sehr liebenswürdig. Ich kann dieses Haus nur weiterempfehlen. Danke für die schöne Zeit.
