Head South for the winter because this global getaway is very popular around Christmas time (then again from March - August.) You will need a passport, a sleep mask, a bloody mary and good book for this trip. But it will be oh so worth the miles you will rack up on your frequent flyer program. Titilaka is the perfect venue if you "want to get lost" and to be in complete communication with nature.
Titilaka is a luxury, art filled eco-lodge and boutique property, located on its very own private peninsula with 4 acres of grounds. It is 20 miles from the bustling commercial center of Puno, Peru. Titilaka is a tranquil oasis on Lake Titicaca, surrounded by the natural wildlife of the lake. The location is ideal for the party host who is an eco-lover and wants to witness the traditional lifestyles of the region's local villagers.
The building is an all-inclusive experience Lodge where most of the amenities and furniture have been made by local communities such as the Titilakas and the Copamaya (textiles). The building was completely restored and designed by Peruvian designers Jordi Puig and Sandra Masías, the concept is by Ignacio Masías.
PILLOW TALK: Titilaka has 18 suites, all have beautiful views of the majestic Titicaca Lake.
HOW WILL YOUR GUESTS GET THERE?: Titilaka is reached by car in 40 minutes from the Puno Train Station or 90 minutes by road from the nearest airport in Juliaca (JUL). Early arrivals arrive to the lodge on a scenic route by car and boat. This transfer is more of a two hour excursion that takes you on the Capachica peninsula and across the lake visiting the Uros Titino Islands and the National Reserve by boat.
