Titilaka was one hotel that was high on our list for our honeymoon in Peru. Being located in the middle of nowhere, on the banks of Lake Titicaca and small in size was very appealing to us.
We arrived during the afternoon and spent the afternoon relaxing after a nice lunch in the restaurant. We had been upgrade from a king room to a sunrise suite which was a lovely surprise. The rooms are incredible and beautifully finished. The bathroom is part of the room separated by a large glass screen which may not suit everyone. We had both a standalone bath and separate shower. Our room was on the second floor and you don't realise the impact altitude has on you until you spend 5 minutes climbing two flights of stairs!
All food, drinks and activities are included in the price and when you arrive you can understand why. It's in the middle of nowhere and it's not a location you would even consider venturing out of to get dinner.
The food is good and they have a set menu with daily specials. However, we were always reminded by staff if there was nothing that we fancied to let them know and they would cook us something we did want.
In the evening the staff set up a little bonfire and serve snacks / hot drinks as the sun is setting. You can then pop around to the other side of the hotel and watch the moon rising. It is an incredible experience.
Unfortunately my wife was very ill the first night and most of the second day with altitude sickness as were a number of other guest. However the staff were excellent and took great care of everyone ensuring they had enough liquids and that when they did want to eat they were eating the correct foods (light broths, etc).
The grounds are fantastic with stunning views looking out over Lake Titicaca and decking around the hotel allowing you to just relax and take in the sun, sights and sounds of the water.
A highly recommended stop on a Peruvian trip and whilst it is expensive it's worth it.
