Rustically styled lodge in a beautiful riverside location, with its own thermal baths and a cosy atmosphere that places an emphasis on relaxation.

The rustically styled Colca Lodge has a stunning location among ancient terraces on the banks of the River Colca. It’s 165km from Arequipa by scenic road up towards the Andes, sheltered in a sunny valley perfect for exploration on foot or even on horseback.

The modest-looking thatched stone cottages belie a higher degree of comfort and quality once inside. Beautifully crafted wooden and stone furnishings inspired by Inca artefacts create a cosy atmosphere with an emphasis on relaxation. There's an attractive restaurant serving up an Andean-inspired fusion menu.

The area is rich in hot springs, but this hotel is the only property to have its own thermal baths on the property. Other activities which can be arranged include trekking, biking, rafting and visits to Inca sites.

What our clients say

  • Stunning location.

    DC, Northallerton
  • The best hotel of our whole trip. Wish we had stayed there for a week and want to go back there to spend more time in that stunning spa. Having the hot springs open and accessible 24/7 was a dream.

    MP, London
  • Excellent hotel in a very good location.

    JA, Staines-upon-thames
  • "Nice hotel with good spa and restaurant."

  • This is a wonderful place and we didn't want to leave. We would have loved another night. Excellent service, food, gardens & a joy to have private hot springs.  They also offered fantastic activities. We loved the horse riding. There is a flat option which would fine for beginners or the 'up' option to the ruins of Uyo uyo which provides incredible views requires some riding experience. We loved the zip lining.  They have fishing rods so you can try your luck with the trout in the river. The rooms are very well appointed and comfortable. The one thing I'd mention (which wouldn't apply if it was only a couple in the room is the terraced chalets have a mezzanine level built above the main double bedroom. There were 2/3 single beds up there. The floor boards have  no insulation /carpet which meant any movement upstairs  (even just turning over in bed) would make the timbers creak and wake everyone.

  • "Colca Lodge excellent - would have liked an extra day there at leisure to recover from altitude problems.  Would not recommend anyone to take the shorter (2 day) trip - that would be exhausting, especially if going on to Puno.”
