What I liked:

The setting is magnificent. I appreciated the hotel was unassuming from the outside yet combined a luxurious and tasteful local feel inside. The hotel also does a lot for the local community. The food and day trips were excellent. It was overall a special and unique experience off the beaten path.

What the hotel could do better:

Nothing, had a wonderful stay!

Hotel Description

Split between Peru and Bolivia, the magnificent Lake Titicaca, considered by Incas to be the sacred birthplace of human civilization, is one of the largest, deepest, and highest bodies of water on the globe. Backpackers have long made the pilgrimage to the water’s edge; this, by contrast, is a high-end luxury boutique hotel that’s set to bring a whole new audience to these shores.

Despite the uncluttered design and contemporary amenities — heated floors, iPod docks, black-out curtains, and wireless internet — Titilaka isn’t a generic five-star. The simple structure, standing solitary on the grassy edge of the lake, is a forward-looking and eco-friendly hotel, with 18 plush suites decorated in earthy hues. The high-end linens, handcrafted bath products, and oversized tubs are pleasant, to be sure, but the real attraction is the jaw-dropping view of the deep blue water through the huge picture windows. It’s fitting, as nearly every activity at Titilaka centers around the lake — cocktail hour on the waterfront terrace, kayak excursions, gourmet dinners of freshly caught trout.

It’s worth noting that the indulgent service is half the fun: a private tour guide and driver meet guests at the airport, escorting you by Land Rover and speedboat to the secluded hotel. The star treatment continues during your stay, with personalized options ranging from breakfast in bed to customized archaeological tours of the region. It’s lavishly equipped, it’s contemporary, but at its heart, Titilaka is appealing in a down-to-earth way that’s faithful to its natural environment.

How to get there:

From the Juliaca airport or Puno Train Station, a Land Rover or similar transports guests for an hour and a half to a picturesque wharf, bypassing the congestion of Puno. The half hour approach via private speedboat is completely serene, a fitting beginning for an authentic Titicaca experience. Titilaka can also be reached in about five hours by car or train from Cusco, and six hours by car from Arequipa. It is also possible to arrive at Titilaka via Bolivia.
