The last stop on a fantastic trip to Peru
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This small but incredible hotel was our last stop in Peru. What an ending to a fabulous trip. The guides the service the food the welcoming atmosphere all create a place we will never forget. We met some wonderful travelers there and shared an afternoon and lovely dinner together
The hotel is just so charming no one should go to Peru without experiencing Titilaka

Remote Seclusion
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

The lodge may (intentionally) look simple from the outside, but is very well appointed and comfortable on the inside. The staff are beyond friendly and helpful. The food is high quality and the breadth of offerings is impressive for a lodge with only 18 rooms. The activities are well developed and meaningful. For example, the lodge has an exclusive relationship with one of the Urus islands, resulting in lodge guests not being part of the typical conveyor belt to visit the floating islands. This is a very special property. It is worth noting that it is remote. It is about a two-hour drive from the airport in Juliaca, so it merits a stay longer than two nights (which is the minimum). We stayed for three nights and would have gladly stayed for a couple more had we the time.

Lake Titicaca is at about 12,500 feet, which is over 1000 more than Cusco. Most guests visit Titilaka after acclimating to altitude in Cusco, Machu Picchu, and the Sacred Valley, which makes sense. We went from sea level to Titilaka, which was a bit aggressive. The staff was quite accommodating and helped with oxygen a few times when we requested. The majority of guests fly down from Cusco as there are not many alternatives for acclimating prior to going to Lake Titicaca. Arequipa / Colca Canyon are possibilities, but there are no flights and instead involve a multi-hour drive.

Stunning location, well trained, caring and friendly staff, beautiful food.

This place has an etherial yet comforting feeling from the moment you arrive.

Try the chicken soup if you have a little altitude sickness.

There is SO much I could say about this place but I think you must go and try for yourself :)

Heavenly Hideaway
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

I spent 3 days at Titlaka to round out a whirlwind trip through Lima, Cusco, and Machu Picchu. It was an exquisite treat! The accommodations are both simple and luxurious. The service is great. The dining and cocktails are unique and delicious. The ambiance and atmosphere on property is rustic and cultured and peaceful. Titilaka does well at leaving nothing to be desired.

True luxury!!

We loved our 2 night stay at Titilaka. Every member of the staff was kind and eager to pamper us in any way possible. The room was gorgeous, with a stunning view of Lake Titicaca. We would like to especially commend Alberth, who was our guide on three separate excursions. Alberth grew up on the floating islands; he had an uncanny ability to find birds and eggs among the reeds, and great knowledge of the culture and history of the communities in and around the lake. Alberth took us on a fascinating tour of the floating islands, took us out sailing and canoeing, kept us safe and entertained, and is also a gifted photographer. We had a 6 hour flight delay on the morning of our departure, and we appreciated that Abel took us back to the hotel, where we were offered a fresh room to rest in during our delay. The food, surroundings, and service at the hotel were all first class. We hope to return some day!
