Situated on the only private island in Lake Titicaca, this solar-powered lodge has admirable ecological credentials.
Featuring panoramic lake views from every room, surrounded by terraced gardens and designed with native materials stone, adobe and thatch to blend into the island, the lodge is committed to being green.
Although there is no electricity, open fires in each room and hot water bottles and thick duvets keep guests warm.
Spot rare vicuñas, hike to Itapilluni Hill to see the spectacular high-altitude sunsets, paddle a canoe around the island, or visit the spa for massages and steam saunas with eucalyptus leaves. A walk with an island guide will introduce something of the wildlife and environment of this high altitude region.
With well-appointed but appealingly rustic rooms, a candlelit gourmet restaurant, bar and game room, the lodge is the perfect place to relax.
Why we love it
A $12 fee per guest to enter Suasi (included in the room charge) helps fund conservation projects on the island and in the vicinity.
