Peru’s Most Beckoning Hideaways – Peru is one of the most appealing destinations in all of South America. Its diverse geographical regions and traditional cultures are enchanting to travelers. Peru offers some of South America’s most immersive experiences, incredible landscapes, well-preserved ruins, and fantastic gastronomy. You won’t fail to be impressed with the uniqueness of your experience or the lavishness of your accommodations. These are just a couple of Peru’s most magical, luxurious hideaways.
Lake Titicaca is one of Peru’s most gravitating regions. Titilaka is a lodge offered by Relais & Chateau, set privately on a picturesque peninsula and located about 60 minutes outside the chaos of Puno. The cobalt indigo of Lake Titicaca is mesmerizing, and as the cradle of civilization in these parts, it is also where the locals believe their god, Wiracocha, directed the first of the Incan peoples to help bring civilization to the region.
Titilaka Lodge offers an incredible, all-inclusive experience. Guests are given spacious accommodations, three chef-prepared meals each day, and an exceptional program of activities on the lake – because you’re a guest of Titilaka, you get to experience Lake Titicaca away from the normal hordes of tourists you’ll find in Puno. Activities you’ll take part in include observing nature, learning the local culture, and hiking the surrounding area. Titilaka’s incredible hiking “menu” allows you to explore beyond what you might consider obvious. Each activity can be participated in as part of a small group, or you can request a private guide to explore on your own. You’ll be more than satisfied with this exclusive, unforgettable experience in a deeply cultural destination.
Tucked amidst the lavishly beautiful gardens in the Sacred Valley of Peru, Peruvian charm and French hospitality meet effortlessly to create Sol y Luna. The hotel’s owners are French and offer impeccable luxury, exquisite dining, and service with a social conscience.
Perhaps most incredible, the Sol y Luna Hotel singlehandedly finances a school in the area. Children who come from less than perfect backgrounds are allowed the chance to obtain a quality education in a safe environment.
The hotel’s accommodations are private “casitas”, or bungalows, each of which offer the guests exquisite, incredible privacy, and if you upgrade to a premium suite, you’ll also have a private terrace and your own Jacuzzi. It’s really hard to put into words the enormous charm of Sol y Luna – it’s a luxurious place to retreat that you simply must experience for yourself.
