Why we like it
- All rooms have wonderful views of the immense lake, long sacred to the people of the Andes, whose waters seem to glow soft orange at sunrise and sunset
- Titilaka stands on a secluded private peninsula 45 minutes from Puno, on the shores of Lake Titicaca
- The restaurant serves contemporary Peruvian dishes using fresh local ingredients
- Other facilities include four acres of grounds and two beaches, wrap-around terraces, an overwater deck and boardwalks, a fully equipped media and reading room, and a small jetty or landing dock. The hotel offers a wide range of guided excursions (hiking, mountain biking, kayaking and sailing)
Titilaka is a striking modern lodge, offering a luxurious refuge from which to explore the national, cultural and historical treasures of this remote and mystical region.
Eighteen fully serviced suites with magnificent views of the lake feature under floor heating, iPods, portable oxygen tanks and excellent bathrooms with oversized bathtubs and massage showers. Contemporary lines and earthy colours reflect the peaceful and simple life of the surrounding area.
The communal areas combine modern architecture with indigenous touches - for instance integrating the vital elements of fire, air, water and earth into the cosy lounge, dining room and bar with wraparound terraces overlooking the lake.
