Went on a tour with Cox & Kings to Peru and Bolivia researching stories.
Me and friend + travel writer Jenny Adams.
Muna (Peruvian mint) tea on Taquila Island.
Views from the bathroom in the Premium Corner room (sunrise facing).
Best bathroom views ever. And notice the cute hot pink wrapped amenities? Love.
Copy that. Cabana time out on the hotel’s deck overlooking Lake Titicaca.
The lounge area next to the dining room—perfect for happy hour or reading a book with a cup of muna (Peruvian mint) tea.
The view of the hotel’s dock from the dining room.
When I grow up, I want my living room/bar to look just like Titilaka’s!
I spent much of my time here after dinner due to the roaring fireplace.
The women of Taquila Island weave intricate patterns and the men knit.
Arriving on the floating island made entirely of reeds via a cool boat made of the same reeds stuffed with recycled plastic bottles.
The view of the hotel you see upon entering the front door. Yep. Gasp-worthy.
Highs + Lows
The guided excursions…from hiking to sailing to visiting the indigenous tribes on the lake’s islands, all excursions are well organized and truly immersive.
The attentive, humble hotel staff makes you feel like the queen or king of the lake!
Every room has a stunning view of the lake. For the best views, request a Premium Corner Room suite.
The nightly cocktail hour on the waterfront around a roaring fire is sublime—especially with one of their signature pisco sours made with pisco infused with local herbs and fruits.
The dinner menu is hit or miss and should focus on local cuisine only.

An all-inclusive, luxury boutique hotel.
Like staying at Ralph Lauren’s lake house…Intimate. Stylish. Tranquil.
Located on a private peninsula on Lake Titicaca, it’s blissfully remote—roughly a two-hour drive from the nearest airport and an hour from the closest city of Puno.

Not sure...but it's beautiful.
No pool or gym, but a spa and pool are coming soon.
Yes, a Peruvian-inspired restaurant, with a few international items (think pizza) that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
Yes, there is daily complimentary cocktail hour with tasty nibbles and wine, beer and booze at the bar. Most beverages are included, except for a few high-end spirits and wines.
Yes…complimentary wine, water and sweet/savory snacks.
Yes, free Wifi.
Leave them. It feels like a retreat—stunning views, soothing décor and sublime outdoor cabanas to laze the day away in. However, kids are allowed.
It’s pricey…but for all activities, luxe hotel room, food and drinks—it’s reasonable.
