I spent 10 glorious days in Willka T'ika (Jan. 2021). What a beautiful, serene place - lush gardens bursting with vibrant life - blooming flowers, fruit trees, hummingbirds surrounded me. The guest rooms were spacious and lovely, and there were many separate outbuildings that provided appealing, calming spaces to read, meditate, practice yoga... There were myriad outdoor gardens with winding paths leading to nooks and crannies in which one could spend quiet, blissful moments...or hours. Lovely walks - or longer hikes - are literally at the doorstep. Nestled in the Sacred Valley, surrounded by mountains, Willka T'ika is a haven of peace. I can't wait to return.
Entering the grounds of Willka T'ika is like entering an assidiously cared for UNESCO botanical gardens. In addition to the unending variety of flora, honeybees dilegently gather pollen and a multitude of hummingbirds gorge themselves on nectar. Tucked away in the lushness are peaceful glades, artfully designed, perfect for meditation, yoga, writing...or any kind of contemplation. The rooms are well laid-out (both the deluxe and standard) with large bathrooms and excellent water pressure. The facility offers so much: two beautiful yoga studies with all props available (one room is immense), a small library, a music room, the dining hall with a lounge/bar area and fireplace. Willka T'ika was so clearly built with great love and intention and these vibrations are all around.
My favorite place I've been in Peru! I would have never imagined the Chakra flower garden to have exceeded my expectations. So much grander than I would have ever imagined. I wish I could bottle the smell of thr whole garden but good thing they thought of that & make essential oils right from their garden. I received a free essential oil as a gift from the owners who were very hospitable & wonderful. The food was so fresh & delicious. The solar baths were an amazing experience with fresh herbs/flowers & I am so glad I did it. The massage & facials by Gaby were absolutely incredible. Not only did she have good knowledge of the body & great technique, but was also open to listening to what I needed & trying some new techniques. Truly a gem 💎 & I can tell she will continue to learn more to give more to her clients. I will definitely make a retreat here & do the solar baths/spa treatments again very soon. Also the first place I stood that had heat. I stood in other places in Pisac & Cusco which unfortunately did not. So during the mornings & nights were freezing inside, so finding this amazing place was just what I needed. Only place I found in Peru & even after in Bolivia, couldn't find any good spa treatments. By far the best I've had in South America & also went to multiple parts of Colombia & went to Panama as well but some years back. I don't think any review or words could sum up how great it is. I feel the only way to understand how spectacular it is, is to experience it in person. Thank you so much!! I can't wait to return to Wilka Tika again ASAP! 💝…
Willka Tika is a yoga retreat center with the most beautiful staff and most precious gardens in the heart of the sacred valley. In the retreat you work on your 7 chakras with yoga, andean ceremonies, flower baths, meditation, temazcal, lecturas de coca, sound ceremonies and so much more. It is a transformative and enlightening experience which I recommend very much. If you are looking to reconnect, heal and re-center in a magical and high energy space, this is the place.
We were supposed to travel with our Yoga group in April of 2019 for a Yoga Retreat. Trip got cancelled because of Covid and their excuse was that they spent our group deposits already on the hotel upkeep. The company that takes your money is registered in USA and then they transfer it to Peru. Terrible management. They all really nice to take the payment but dealing in a difficult situation really show their face. Unfortunately we have take legal action.
