Titilaka Lodge

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

Set on a diminutive, windswept peninsula on Lake Titicaca’s western shore, this sleek Andean gem offers a break from all that Spanish colonial decor.

Just a 40-minute drive from the bustling highland city of Puno, it’s a chilled-out retreat where ambient noise consists of little more than the gentle lapping of water against the reeds. 

Public areas and rooms have wall-to-ceiling glass to bring the glorious scenery in. The best bedrooms with a view are those facing east and at the corners – positioned for sunrise over the water.

Excursions (kayaking, bird-watching, visits to floating islands) and all food are included in the price. 

Titilaka is all about the views; the high mountain air is interstellar-clear, and you could stare transfixed for hours over Titicaca – which stretches mirror flat to distant islands and mountains.

Plan to spend one evening on the hotel’s deck, watching the lake turn brilliant shades of orange and purple as the sun dips below the horizon. The sunsets on Lake Titicaca are legendary. The stars are magnificent. 

Surrounding area

The hotel crests a small cape an hour’s drive south of Puno. Situated on an agricultural peninsula, the setting couldn’t be more pristine. The hotel lies literally at the end of the road, on a small peninsula south of Puno cluttered with family farms. The only neighbours are indigenous smallholdings.

Lake Titicaca surrounds the buildings on three sides and the only noise is the call of the birds and the gentle lap of the waves.

Boat excursions begin right outside the lobby. The lodge is equipped with boats for exploring the lake. There are kayaks for adventurous paddlers and rowing boats for leisurely floats through the reed-studded wetlands.
