We love the luxury Titilaka set on a pretty peninsula on Lake Titicaca, surrounded by traditional villages yet not intruding on their bucolic way of life. Even its bold, uncompromisingly contemporary style manages to complement the rural landscape, and its emphasis on meaningful experiences represents a new concept in hospitality on the lakeshore. The property is listed in the prestigious Relais & Chateaux portfolio.
Service is faultless and highly individualised: for example, you can dine overlooking the lake on your balcony aside your own open fire. A choice of exclusive and original excursions will keep you away from the tourist crowds and give you an unsullied insight into the life and history of this ancient land. All meals, excursions and private transfers are included, leaving you completely free and at ease to soak up the timeless, mystical ambience of the lake.
There are just 18 suites, each elegantly decorated with an emphasis on the colour palette of the natural environment, and incorporating subtle indigenous motifs and handicrafts. Lake views from the vast picture windows are unparalleled. Attention has been paid to every detail, and there is no shortage of modern comforts, from under-floor heating to sumptuous linens. Bathrooms, also with lake view, have huge tubs and a massage shower.
