Key Materials of Construction: Wood, concrete.

Artists from around the world painted stunning murals. Room walls host original art pieces, some from local artisans; and some from Doron’s collection, including art that was exhibited in shows in New York, California and Israel.
Eco-Architectural Features: All of our accommodations are new construction and built with ecological and permaculture practices in mind. They are decorated with original murals, art and textiles. From comfortable garden-enclosed shared rooms to airy, lake view suites, the accommodation here is eco-friendly and designed for utter relaxation.
The retreat center offers three types of rooms: private rooms with ensuite bathrooms, private rooms with shared bathrooms, and dormitory rooms with shared bathrooms. Most bathrooms have solar systems, and some are gas heated. We created massive septic tanks, with food forest to allow clients to have flush toilettes while still keeping eco and sustainability in mind.
Energy Sources & Energy-Saving Features: The place is built on permaculture principles, with blending in nature as priority. Natural materials are blended with new technology, with vegetation and gardens surround every corner, a vibrant river and dramatic views all around. It is a coffee farm, along with mature avocado and other fruit trees. Solar system and 4 septic systems to support a growing business.
Water Sources & Water-Saving Features: Municipality water comes from a spring up the hill, and garden water comes from the river that runs through the property. All water systems are sustainable. We process all our black water in our eco septic tanks that convert them to grey water. We then run this water through natural gravel filters and finally through an intricate system of underwater drip system, it is spread through our food forest, where it supports the growth of our trees.
We have a mini farm with many trees, and over 35 varieties of herbs and vegetables that rotate in our gardens, as well as chicken and ducks. The duck pond gets water from the river that flows though the land, and later flows into the garden. Our gardens are close to the kitchen and all around the property making it easy to access, maintain and harvest. We serve herbal tea, always from our garden, and the coffee we grow and process 100% by hand on our land.
Waste-Management Facilities: We run on almost zero-waste system. It's a permaculture based center, we do create our own compost

Description of Location: Doron Yoga & Zen Center is nestled in the lush scenery of mountains, volcanos and majestic Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. It’s an ideal location to unplug and enjoy the beauty of the nature and mysticism of ancient Mayan culture. The land itself is in a valley, along a small river which adds the charm to the property.
Guatemala is easily accessible from Europe, the US and Canada. Many inexpensive flights arrive directly from many cities in the US. We have road access, parking and are a 10-minute walk from the lake and the public dock.
Lake Atitlan is known as a center for healing and health, spirituality and permaculture. It is one of the top most beautiful lakes worldwide, and considered to have unique energy fields.
