“Great place!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

First rate establishment provides a full Peruvian experience. You can see all the fantastic sites in Peru but then return to a spectacular environment of gardens, massages, solar baths and excellent food. The staff there is first rate and cannot do enough for their guests. The management team led by Carol is also first rate. I cannot imagine a better way to see Peru.

Carol and her staff have created an amazing environment at Willka T'ika! The staff is not only accommodating, but everything was done with a smile. All our meals here came directly from the garden and beautifully prepared. And the Lunar Bath's are something not to be miss, as well as their massage's. One of the major highlights of Willka T'ika are the Chakra Gardens. This alone will make you want to come back!

On the comfort side, hot water bottles, beautiful rooms, exquisite food and true service with a smile. Amazing gardens blooming with flowers some a botanist mystery 'they should not grow there! carol and her staff enjoy meeting all your needs. If that is enough for you and ....what more could you want? However if you want to experience a sense of Peruvian spirituality then you will find it easy to access just sit in the gardens or seek out the shaman then go see Machu Picchi and ask Carol about the children's Foundation.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms

Words cannot express the quality and professionalism I and my colleagues experienced. From the very first introduction with the staff while making arrangements, to our wonderful and efficient caring guide, to the owner Carol Cumes and the staff at Willka T'ika.
The arrangements were perfect for our group and flexible as well. The vegetarian meals were first class and the lodging superb.
My group and I feel so privileged to have shared in this Magical Journey.

It is the small things that really make a difference. Fresh bouquets of flowers at the bedside, hot water bottle nestled in the bed for comfort, excellent vegetarian menu, exquisite gardens, mindful, supportive staff, best tour guide and amazing menu of body treatments! Wow, our group felt truly supported and nourished on our yoga retreat at Willka T'ika. Thanks to all the staff for making our journey so magical!

Everything at Willka t'ika has been carefully thought out and the staff do everything to make the experience as magical as possible, without being obvious about it, I felt each night getting into bed that it was fairies that had put the hot water bottle in for me!

The food is all locally grown and absolutely delicious, I left feeling much healthier than when I had arrived and despite being a real carnivore I barely noticed spending the week as a vegetarian.

The gardens and yoga studios are incredible places of peace. The gardens beautifully designed for spending time in thought and at peace and the light airy yoga studios allow for abundant energy flow.

I recommend anyone visiting willka t'ika to spend at least an hour in conference with the ancient lucuma tree at the far end of the gardens.
