Titilaka is a lovely boutique hotel situated on a private peninsula on the shores of Lake Titicaca. Not only is the lake among the largest in all of South America, it’s also the highest fully navigable lake in the world. All of the hotel’s bedrooms look out on to the lake, affording wonderful views of the particularly still, reflective water. This charming and peaceful property belongs to the Relais & Châteaux fellowship of individually owned luxury hotels.
There are 18 rooms altogether, set out across three floors, with a total of four different room categories, each one offering something different. The Dawn and Dusk rooms, for example, are designed to offer views of sunrise or sunset respectively, while the Corner rooms, which are the hotel’s most popular, offer views of both. The King room category is more suitable for smaller parties or solo travellers. Common to all rooms at the hotel are amenities such as heated floors, a minibar, a divan overlooking the lake, blackout curtains, overhead bed lamps and desk reading lamps. Bathrooms have twin sink units and both a bathtub and a separate shower, though the King room's bathroom only has a shower. Complimentary eco-friendly toiletries are provided.
The hotel makes full use of its stunning location on a private peninsula, offering a wide array of activities to be enjoyed in peace and tranquility. There are two beaches reserved exclusively for hotel guests, as well as a small jetty from where excursions begin. Lake Titicaca straddles the Peru-Bolivia border and the Bolivian side of the lake is within reach. Activities include reed rafting trips, stargazing tours, cycling expeditions and visits to local temples, villages and markets.
The hotel has a full-service restaurant offering three meals a day, along with afternoon tea, light snacks and drinks. Guests have the option to dine in their own room or out on one of the terraces - it's also delightful to enjoy drinks on the beach at sunset.
After a day exploring the vast lake and the surrounding area, it's possible to wind down with a trip to the massage room, where various indulgent treatments are on offer. There’s also the media room, which is equipped with a range of DVDs, books and games, plus the boutique, which sells a number of locally produced artisan products and souvenirs.
Titilaka welcomes children over 5 years of age. There’s a good range of age-appropriate activities available and many of the excursions are suitable for youngsters. A babysitting service is offered and extra cribs can be hired. Parents are reminded to supervise their children at all times, particularly due to the lakeside setting.
Thank you, Lisa! Our trip was wonderful even with the weather disruption. We loved seeing so many different parts of the country, meeting people and experiencing the culture. The desert was surely a highlight for our boys and the creativity and artisanship of everything from food to crafts were a highlight for me. A special shout out to our guide and driver, they became a special part of our trip and we will forever be grateful for meeting them and learning from them. I cannot believe we had to wait three years for this adventure but it was certainly worth the wait! Thanks for all your help building the itinerary, modifying it and troubleshooting during our stay.

Hi Lisa and everyone at Tourdust,
We've had a wonderful time on our holiday and wanted to pass our appreciation to you. Everything has been expertly planned and executed, allowing us to enjoy the holiday to its fullest. Special appreciation to Muhammed, Ibrahim, and Omar, our Atlas guide, cook, and muleteer, who couldn't have done more for us and were just generally wonderful and hardworking. Riad Hanane is a perfect base in Marrakech to complement the trekking as it's ina less touristy area of the medina, which we appreciated. The staff and accomodation was superb.Thank you again for a trip to remember!
Bob, May, Grace, and Lucas

Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
Kind regards, Carol
