Welcome to your exclusive Lake Titicaca retreat at Titilaka Hotel! This unique property by the luxury hospitality group Relais & Châteaux offers impeccably furnished rooms with magnificent views of Lake Titicaca at sunrise, sunset, or both! Located on the southeastern shore of the lake, Titilaka sits on a serene, private peninsula whose only other inhabitants are members of the local Aymara community. Social responsibility and collaboration with the local people are the hallmarks of this sustainable property, run in cooperation with the Aymara, who know this unique world intimately. You will be enjoying a luxurious stay at the Titilaka hotel, while participating in a project that provides much-needed revenue streams for the local people. This 4-day, 3-night program includes immersing in the beauty of the lake, getting to know the Taquile and Uros people of the famous floating islands, a full day exploring the culture and traditions of the local Aymara people, optional activities such as birdwatching, kayaking or canoeing on the lake, and a visit to the ancient funeral towers, the chullpas of Sillustani.
