Titilaka, a modern all inclusive experience lodge on a remote peninsula on the Peruvian shores of Lake Titicaca, offers a luxurious refuge from which to explore the treasured natural, cultural and historical resources of this mystical region. Surrounded by stunning scenery and pristine geography, Titilaka’s contemporary design and comfort integrates with the natural environment. The architectural concept of Titilaka is closely linked to a special place positioned starkly between water, mountains and sky. The hotel is not only a welcoming lodge full of contemporary comforts and caring services, but a place designed to integrate with the environment and pay homage, if you wish, to the cultures of Lake Titicaca.

Titilaka is also a special place with spectacular views which inspire each visitor to contemplate, explore and enjoy a sense of peaceful isolation and primeval beauty. At 12,500 feet above sea level, we are just that much closer to the sky. The three-story lodge offers 18 lake-view rooms facing Taquile and Amantani islands to the north; the Bolivian Cordillera Real to the East, along with Lake Titicaca which stretches to the East and West. At the northern tip of the peninsula is the dock, departure point for local and excursion boats.

Titilaka keeps a low carbon footprint. The hotel uses hydroelectric power, natural gas, sources local produce and employs mostly local workers. Interpreters are focused on promoting conservation practices, accentuating local traditions, customs and culture. The hotel actively participates with the local community in various developmental, educational, conservation and social projects. These opportunities are available for guests.
