Located on a private peninsula that juts out onto the fabled waters of Lake Titicaca, Titilaka is designed to allow guests to fully experience this magical and deeply historical place.
There are just 18 rooms spread over three floors, all boasting views out across the tranquil waters. Dawn rooms face east and catch the sun as it rises – an integrated bathroom means you can watch the sky light up while soaking in your oversized bath tub. Dusk rooms face west and from here you can catch the sun as it sinks behind the horizon at the end of the day. The corner suites are the largest and are located on the third floor, with double windows for incredible views.
The design is clean and contemporary with local textiles and fresh flowers to add colour and character. There is plenty of space to relax with three lounges, a reading room with books, games and DVDs, as well as wraparound terraces, overwater decks abd boardwalks to really connect you to the lake itself.
There is a small jetty at the end of the peninsula where boats depart from to explore the lake and its islands, and there are kayaks, row boats and bicycles available too. The lodge offers full-day, half-day or short activities – all of which are included in your stay – simply let them know on arrival what you would like to do each day.
Food at Titilaka is simple and wholseome and uses local produce such as lake trout and Andean spices. You can choose to dine in the restaurant or enjoy your meal outside, enjoying the views and the breeze from the lake. There is also a massage room should you wish to indulge.
The lodge is all inclusive and breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, cocktails and dinner, sundowners and snacks throughout the day are included in your stay.
Promoting ancestral skills
Titilaka works hand in hand with a non-profit organisation which supports the communities around the lake and they make a donation on behalf of every guest. They have funded and organised a weaving project, including workshops by Klaud, a Lima-based fashion company that promotes new methods to use the traditional Andean textiles. More than 50 locals have already participated in the free workshops, allowing them to use their ancestral skills to create contemporary products and generate a new income. Titilaka also support the local school by funding an English teacher and offering workshops and lecture series to improve vocal skills.
Supporting local communities
Titilaka helps neighbouring communities to advance technologically by identifying their needs and then helping them with the implementation, including features such as Wi-Fi connectivity. Titilaka’s social commitment is focussed on supporting the sustainable economic development of the villages around the lodge. Starting by offering local community members a stable, well-paid job that is all too rare in this part of the world, these jobs complement their traditional lifestyle focused on small-scale agriculture. Three-quarters of their staff come from local communities and they source ingredients locally as much as possible, providing the families with an important market for their products, from food crops to Andean textiles.
