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.
The hotel features eighteen lake-facing rooms with exceptional view which are scattered on three levels connected by a central hallway. Each room has an open format and is equipped with a full bathroom and furnished with contemporary lines complemented by local textiles and fresh flowers.
Each room is fully equipped with:
4 King Rooms (28 sq mt / 301 sq ft) located in the first and second floor featuring one king sized bed and sofa bed. Bathroom is equipped with shower only.
8 Dawn Rooms (30-40 SQM/322 – 430 SQ FT) on the second and third floor face east towards dawn. These rooms have an open format, integrated bathroom separated by a curtain with private toilet and oversized bathtub.

2 Corner Rooms (38-43 SQM/409 – 463 SQ FT) on the third floor with double windows and the best views available. These rooms have a separate bathroom with private toilet, open shower and oversized bathtub.
The hotel is designed as an experience lodge or hub to facilitate exploration and maximize exposure to the lake, nature and local life style. All services and facilities were designed accordingly.
Visitors often compare the setting with the Scottish highlands or Patagonia. Titilaka is strategically located in a rural community south of Puno (the main city in the Peruvian shore of the lake), surrounded by small hamlets of Quechua and Aymara cultures. Lake Titicaca is the world’s highest navigable lake at 12,500 feet (3,810m) above sea level and covers some 3,200 square miles (8,300 square km) has a depth of 107 meters and is 50 miles (80 km) wide. Titilaka is reached by car (30 minutes) and/or by boat, from the Puno Train Station or 90 minutes by road from the nearest airport at Juliaca (JUL).
