This place is a gem. Nestled in lush rolling hills outside Cuzco, it envelops you in its warm, comforting embrace. Armando, the chef, prepares vegan dishes that would not be out of place in a 5-star London or New York restaurant. Friendly dogs follow you around the avocado plantation, and cats are waiting to ignore you when you return to the lodge for a lie-down in a hammock with a beer or glass of wine. It was the perfect end to an amazing two-week trip with Oda and her team.
This was my second stay at Andean Spirit Lodge, and I know it will not be the last. The grounds are so lovely, designed for contemplative pursuit, with paths winding up and along the hillsides that are covered in blooming flowers and trees. There are areas designed to sit and meditate, reflect or simply take in all the beauty of nature. There are many birds on the property, including a screech owl. The bungalows have very comfortable beds with nice linens, spacious bathrooms and lovely views overlooking the gardens. We spent 5 nights including Christmas at Andean Spirit Lodge, and it was a beautiful stress free holiday. Excellent food, so beautifully prepared and presented, followed by relaxing evenings visiting or reading in front of the fire in the Lodge. Oda and Armando's warm hospitality is really outstanding; so genuine and generous.…
The Andean Spirit Lodge is a very nice and peaceful place to stay. A very nice garden with lots of plants and trees. The cabins were quiet, nice. The vegetarian food as well as the coffee was excellent. Very friendly and interesting hosts to visit.
The Andean Spirit Lodge is a great place to stay, hidden away in a beautiful valley well off the main road, so very peaceful. Lots of nice forest all around with plenty of birds, very comfortable en-suite cabins, great vegetarian food, and very friendly hosts in Oda and Armando.
Super sweet bungalow - very cozy and private, enjoyed a good night's sleep in a peaceful beautiful and serene location. Loved exploring the gardens and especially seeing a coffee bean plant in real life!! The bungalow was perfect for one but I could imagine sharing it with friends using the upstairs loft sleeping area. The meals were beautifully presented and so delicious and healthy. Relaxing by the fireplace with Peruvian wine in the main lodge was a real treat. I definitely plan to come back someday - no better place to reflect, rest and recuperate. Highly recommend!
