Spectacularly secluded on Peru’s Lake Titicaca, sits the tranquil Titilaka Lodge, featuring an exclusive 18 rooms, where you’ll be immersed in rustic Peruvian culture.

Also boasting a modern edge, Titilaka provides outdoor verandas for you to absorb the region’s truly breath-taking scenery. Whether relaxing in remoteness, cramming in some culture or undertaking exciting excursions, Titilaka is sure to impress.
Located a short half an hour drive from Puno domestic airport, Titilaka is no great distance but also gives you that far away feel. Titilaka plays host to infinite, unforgettable outdoor activities, from trekking the Colla Trail and cycling the Plateria fields to rowing and kayaking Lake Titicaca. Just a stone’s throw away, you’ll be able to visit the ‘Pink City’ of Lampa, the Chullpas of Sillustani and the Copamaya weaving community for that exhilarating slice of culture; not to mention all the beautiful birdlife you’ll observe around the area.
Thanks to being settled on a private peninsula, Titilaka is pleasantly positioned in view of the peaceful Lake Titicaca, a fact of which the 18 rooms take full advantage. In airy, clean comfort, with heated floors and huge windows boasting a picturesque panorama of the Peruvian landscape, you’ll wake up to the stunning sunrise, shimmering on the lake’s surface. Come night-time, this hotel also allows for jaw-dropping, starlit skies, so before you hit out the lights, gaze out in wonder at the legendary star constellations.
Why we like it
Aside from the astounding Latin American vistas, we love the breadth of incredible experiences offered here. Notably, we love visiting the Lake’s islands and learning about their age-old heritage, from the stone structures on Amantani and the villages on Taquile to the birthplace of the Inca Empire on the ‘Island of the Sun’. Additionally, time your stay right for a true taste of tradition as you head to Puno for its local festival, where you’ll see a vibrant stream of colourful dancing, embellished with the extravagant dress and fascinating rituals.
