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.

Important Bits

  • Type

    An all-inclusive, luxury boutique hotel.

  • Vibe

    Like staying at Ralph Lauren’s lake house…Intimate. Stylish. Tranquil.

  • Location

    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.

  • Rooms

    18

  • Music

    Andean music.

  • Year Opened

    2008

    Not sure...but it's beautiful.

    No pool or gym, but a spa and pool are coming soon.

  • Restaurant

    Yes, a Peruvian-inspired restaurant, with a few international items (think pizza) that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.

  • Bar

    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.

  • Minibar

    Yes…complimentary wine, water and sweet/savory snacks.

  • Children

    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.

  • Price

    It’s pricey…but for all activities, luxe hotel room, food and drinks—it’s reasonable.
