Night view of “The Nest”Eagle’s Retreats has built a very special and unique space, to host your event, named the “Eagle’s Nest” or simply “The Nest”. This open air platform sits perched above Mayan village of San Marcos La Laguna. An immersive experience simply to be on the platform, contemplating and feeling Lake Atitlán, its energies, its volcanoes, its awe inspiring and breathtaking panoramic show that the view affords. The platform has no boundaries and metaphorically speaks to the soul about beyond… That beyond is not only possible, it is here and now, around you, before you, it is a part of you and you are a part of it. THAT is one of the unspoken components of the magic of “The Nest”.
Built in the shape of a scallop shell, symbolic of pilgrims on the Camino de Santiago (Saint James’ Way, in Spain), it measures approximately 15×9 meters and provides a workspace area of 140 m2/1500ft2. The person capacity of the platform varies according to the activity. Yoga / AcroYoga – 35 to 45 persons, Meditation / Group Circles 75 to 100, Dance Events 150 to 200.
Our unique sauna design, inspired by world travels and the Mayan sauna culture (locally called “Temascal”), is round and the entry is made from the floor. Entering it as though entering the womb again, it invites you for a rebirth.
With a capacity of 10 seated, this masterpiece will seduce you further with its colorful art in the cupola. The Sistine Chapel of saunas is heated by firewood lit outside, burning in a rocket stovedesigned to make the combustion way more efficient than a regular chimney fire, adding to the fact that there is no lateral door for the heat to escape from. When you get a little too hot, come outside and take a dip in the infinity dipping pool, with views to seduce the most well traveled of souls.
Part of hosting retreats includes an area for socializing, sitting or lounging and of course sharing meals together. It is indoors and also serves as our kitchen for preparing group meals. We call it Eagle’s Lounge and it is located under The Nest.
It is your dining room, your café space, your lounge and your hangout. This space has a calling for visionary artists to make their mark. They already have created beautifully colorful murals that hold depth in the symbols and energies they transmit. It will no doubt be part of the overall transmissions you capture from your experience at Eagle’s Retreats. Eagle’s Lounge also offers you a very impressive connection with Lake Atitlán, as its very large bay windows further invite you to indulge in panoramic lake reveries.
Eagle’s Cafe Atitlan is located on-site and provides good eats and tasty treats for weekly events happening at Eagle’s Nest as well as for retreats throughout the year.
The owner, Anna, prides herself on using local and fresh ingredients abundantly produced in the tropical climate of Guatemala including bananas, cacao, coconuts and panela.
Eagle’s Cafe incorporates balance into its offerings, and includes everything from clean green smoothies to guilty-pleasure Butch apple pie. The cafe also has a wide price range to allow for availability and accessibility to anyone that stops in for a coffee or a slice of cake.
