Our two days spent on Sausi Island were one of the highlights of our two-week vacation in Peru.
Leaving the more popular tourist spots behind - e.g. Cusco and Machu Picchu - this was a welcome change of pace! What a wonderful place! How great it was to relax and enjoy the beautiful gardens and the views.
Our stay was made particularly memorable by Raul, the ever-present guide, who took us on
the evening hike to Itapilluni Hill. As we wound our way up the hillside past alpacas and vicunas, we learned so much about local history and culture. The following morning Raul introduced us to Martha and her house and gardens.
Overall, the hotel was outstanding because of its unpretentious simplicity and its idyllic location.
