On the south-eastern shore of Lake Titicaca, this secluded lodge with two private beaches sits on a picturesque peninsula otherwise inhabited only by the local Aymara community. Each of its 18 open-plan rooms face the vast sparkling water, with wrap-around terraces and overwater decks. Their design is contemporary, but with a regional touch - local textiles provide colourful accents on a calming neutral canvas, alongside heated floors, blackout curtains and oxygen on request.
Dining comes courtesy of a chef and butlers who take pride in serving Andean fusion from local produce (including plenty of lake trout), while a sundowner on the hotel's terrace is quite unforgettable.
Lake Titicaca crosses the Peruvian border into Bolivia, and here days can be spent heading out from the lodge's boathouse in kayaks and canoes, on paddleboards or sunfish sailboats; exploring its reeds and eco-system; or learning something of the local culture on tiny islands. Later, there are boardwalks, a cellar packed with regional wines, a massage room and lounges with views of bright blue waters and skies to discover.
