Titilaka

An all-inclusive, Relais & Châteaux boutique hotel situated on a private peninsula of Lake Titicaca.

Overview

Titilaka sits on Lake Titicaca’s shores and has 18 rooms, each with views of the water. The sophisticated hotel is ensconced on a private peninsula which it shares with the local indigenous Aymara community, and features all the authentic yet contemporary décor and five-star service that you might expect from a member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux fellowship.

Life On The Lake

Life at Titilaka is as it should be, stress free with everything included, so you can enjoy all the meals, a selection of drinks, activities, and all the gorgeous scenery surrounding the hotel without worrying about a thing. The three-story lodge has a low carbon footprint, thanks to hydroelectric power, and employs local workers from nearby communities.

As you walk through the hotel, striking natural scenes, including the two private beaches, are visible from every angle. Sit on the outdoor wrap-around terraces, boardwalks, and floor-to-ceiling windows in the lounges and dining room offer views of the two private beaches, the lake, and the four acres of land surrounding the hotel.

For a bit of extra relaxation, schedule a massage or treatment in the spa. Every evening, enjoy a sundowner in the bar or on the beach. For families traveling with tiny explorers, cribs and nannies are available. Thrice daily housekeeping service, a boutique stocked with an eclectic collection of items, and complimentary WIFI complete the experience.

Exploratory Excursions

Titilaka Hotel serves as a hub for exploration and has various programs to help you discover the lake, the natural surroundings, and the local lifestyle. Both shared, and private excursions are available both on the lake and throughout the surrounding area. Explore the Uros communities’ floating islands and learn how skilled reed raftsmen and expert weavers keep their islands afloat.

Visit local festivals and discover colonial temples or go birdwatching near the lake. You may also cycle through the fields of Platería, kayak on the lake, or raft through reeds as you learn about the ecosystem of Lake Titicaca. It is even possible to arrange excursions into Bolivia to visit the famous Isla del Sol.

Gastronomy at Titilaka

Chef María Fé Garcia used the ethereal beauty of Titicaca as the inspiration for the menu served at Titilaka. The contemporary menu is a unique take on Peruvian cuisine, features Andean ingredients including lake trout, and is carefully created to take the high altitude into account in the cooking process. At breakfast, local breads, cheese, fruits, and eggs are served until noon, with lunch and appetizers available until three.

This flexible schedule allows you to enjoy a meal between relaxing and discovering the area. Take a seat in the dining room, or dine on the outdoor terraces where the view pairs perfectly with each dish.

Lake Titicaca was the cradle of Andean civilization, and Titilaka is an ideal base for exploring some of Peru’s most traditional communities. Everyone from bird watchers to wildlife lovers, families looking for casual explorations, and anyone seeking to rejuvenate in a unique ecosystem will love their time at Titilaka.

Islands of Lake Titicaca Excursion & Picnic

Today is a sample itinerary that includes a selection of the explorations on offer at Titilaka. This day is completely customizable.

AM: This is an active day. If you wish, get up at dawn to witness a magnificent sunrise. Whenever you do wake, enjoy a healthy breakfast in bed or on our terrace. In the morning, your guides will take you by car and boat to visit the famed Uros floating islands, near the Titicaca National Reserve. Here you will meet one of the traditional families that inhabit these unique islands. The Uro- Aymara people are a proud culture, where the men skillfully traverse the lake with rafts made from reeds, and the women are expert weavers. Calling themselves kot-suña or, “people of the lake,” the Uro-Aymara were once persecuted by other groups and forced to relocate to Lake Titicaca, where they found refuge by creating the islands out of totora reeds. Considering themselves guardians of Titicaca, the Uro-Aymara claim to have black blood that supposedly makes them impervious to the cold. A must for travelers to the area, expect to see many visitors here.

PM: You will then explore Quechua beliefs and culture through the rich weaving tradition on the island of Taquile. Declared a part of UNESCO’s Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, Taquile’s vivid textiles convey complex messages about the wearer’s social status and life. As the island enjoys a privileged microclimate, you’ll likely see men weaving wonderful pieces outdoors.You will then enjoy a picnic against the stunning backdrop of Titicaca’s deep blue skies, the lake’s sapphire waters, and on the horizon, Bolivia’s Cordillera Real, or Royal Mountain Range.

Return to the hotel around 5:30pm and enjoy cocktails from 6:30pm and an á la carte dinner around 7:30pm.

Today is a sample itinerary that includes a selection of the explorations on offer at Titilaka. This day is completely customizable.

AM: After breakfast, and depending on the timing of your departure, you may enjoy a short excursion, an en route excursion, or one of a range of activities near the lodge.

The en route excursion involves a visit to the mysterious, ancient site of Sillustani, home to the area’s best preserved chullpas, or funerary towers. Once a burial ground for the Pucara, Tiahuanaco, and Ccolla pre-Inca cultures, and then the Incas themselves, Sillustani’s chullpas offer an ideal opportunity to compare the contrasting pre-Columbian architectonic styles.

Symbolizing life and birth, these ancient tombs were used for chiefs and other dignitaries. Made of stones weighing up to six tons, the biggest tower took around 50 years to complete. Offering archaeology and history, in a stunning natural setting, Sillustani is an impressive site we strongly recommend you see.

Farewell takes place at Juliaca airport or Puno train station as you head off to your next destination.
