Inca Utama Hotel & Spa, located in Huatajata on the eastern shores of Lake Titicaca, is a cultural highlight to any trip to this region.
The hotel itself has 67 rooms, though the complex also boasts a museum, chapel, observatory and a whole host of more cultural attractions. Visit the Andean Eco Village - complete with Urus-Chipayas mud igloos and many native arts – and stop by the Altiplano Museum and Observatory with its powerful telescope for a spectacular view of the southern constellations.
The hotel’s rooms are spread through two buildings with traditional Aymara décor. Rooms are well heated with electric blankets to keep you warm during the cold altiplano nights. The Sumaj Untavi Restaurant hosts folklore shows and serves a hearty menu, whilst La Choza Nautica restaurant overlooks the lake and is a fantastic place to enjoy the gorgeous vistas that surround the hotel. Guests to Inca Utama can also enjoy a wonderful spa, complete with saunas, massages, hydrotherapy, mud and salt baths and other traditional Andean treatments based on wild herbs.
