Inkaterra Titilaka Hotel, PeruUPDATE: Insiders tell us that this pretty new hotel is now being managed by the Andean Experience.

Titilaka is the latest luxury lodge from Peruvian hotel group Inkaterra- the eco-friendly group behind the fabulous, carbon-neutral properties La Casona Inkaterra, situated in Cusco, and the Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, nestled in the cloud forest in the heart of Machu Picchu's Historical Sanctuary. Perched on a private peninsula in a stunning location (the Andean altiplanos astride Peru and Bolivia), the Titilaka Hotel offers all-inclusive excursions by car, horseback, or by foot:

Visit the living cultures of the Quechuas and Aymaras, set off to Taquile, Amantani and the floating man-made reed islands of Uros; visit the splendid colonial churches of Juli, Pomata and Lampa; or bird watching from the hilltops of Perka and Inkanatavi.

Overlooking the lake, believed by the Inca to be the sacred origin of the universe, the hotel's suites have ultra-modern facilities like heated floors, i-Pods, portable oxygen tanks, plasma screen TVs, mini-bars, and separate soaking tubs and showers in the bathrooms. Coming soon: a spa, heated pool and sauna with views of the lake.
