MORE INFORMATION

For value for money with the experience offered, this is our favourite hotel in Peru. We always use this hotel in Colca when it´s available, and it´s why we offer 2 nights in Colca. Because staying here for one evening is not enough. So good we changed our itinerary to add an extra day! This hotel nestles on the banks of the River Colca. It is surrounded by hundreds of pre-Inca agricultural terraces, which have been declared a Peruvian cultural heritage site, and is blessed with relaxing hot spring waters. This is a place with ancient energy, combined with nature and the starting point for exploring the valley and visiting the Colca Canyon, one of the world`s deepest ravines. At Colca Lodge you will feel another dimension to relaxation at the hot springs Eco-spa with a steam room, Jacuzzis, and massage sessions with local therapists. In addition to the sense of tranquility and harmony provided by the landscape, the never-ending flow of the river complete an experience not to be forgotten.

Natural Hot Springs
Few places on Earth have the good fortune to be blessed with such beautiful natural surroundings and hot springs of such special quality as you will find at Colca Lodge. The four pools, located on the banks of the river, are fed by natural springs which produce water at temperatures of up to 80ºC and are rich in minerals that are beneficial to the health - notably lithium, an element that promotes relaxation. The design of the pools has been carefully worked out so as to minimize interference with the natural surroundings. Only local materials have been used in their construction (stone, earth and straw) to create a magical ambience that will take you into another dimension, especially on winter nights under an impressive southern-hemisphere star-filled sky. 

Room Features
Colca Lodge has 45 rooms of a rustic style all of which have a view of the valley and the hotel's gardens and patios. Most of them have a creative heating system employing heat-radiating stone slabs warmed by geothermal energy sources - with a minimum environmental impact. With it's simple decoration, thatched roofs, and some walls built of adobe, Colca Lodge offers 19 double and 17 triple or quadruple rooms, 1 Family Suite, 1 Matrimonial Suite and 1 Panoramic Suite. Also available are 6 Adobe suites and Junior Suites - tastefully decorated in tone with the surroundings and with relaxing terraces offering splendid views. Given the remote location of the hotel and the unavailability of good-quality Wi-Fi and television, these services are offered, with certain restrictions, only within the social areas of the Lodge. However, we guarantee that you will not miss them in the rooms.

The signature dish here is the meat selection that comes out sizzling on hot volcanic rock. Beef, Lamb and Alpaca, each selection so very tender, juicy and succulent. The Alpaca is the surprise here being our favourite choice. I would dare say the best Alpaca in Peru. When you are in Arequipa a visit to Zig Zag is a must.
