Absolutely wonderful base for Colca Canyon!Posted Jun 11, 2015 on Hotels
The owner, Guillermo, empowers his staff to exceed expectations -- they are extremely responsive, friendly, and accommodating, prepared to adapt to unforeseen issues to solve them quickly and wonderfully. They have excellent English and respond to email and phone inquiries promptly and fully. They arranged our tour from Puno to their lodge, into Colca Canyon and onto Arequipa, making it very easy for us to stay at Killawasi for two days and two nights, to enjoy hikes in the surrounding hills and terraces, views of the snow capped active volcanos, the charming small town of Yanque, relaxing in the hammocks, thermal baths nearby, and a horseback riding tour they arranged for us (be sure to confirm that the guide speaks English). From all information we gathered, this is the best place to stay in the Chivay/Yanque area. The rooms are large, with private balconies and modern bathrooms with plentiful hot water. The hotel's restaurant is a bit upscale without being prohibitive, well exectuted, and you can feel comfortable eating the salads.. what more could one want?

Relájate y disfruta !!Posted May 6, 2015 on Hotels
Fenomenal estancia en Killawasi Lodge: merece la pena pagar un poco más por la Suite Junior (cama King size, terraza con mesa/sillas y excelentes vistas). Muy buena decoración (jardines, hamacas...) Gran personal atendiendo: Fredy nos hizo la excursión guiada de 3 horas por los alrededores de Yanque (incluida!!) y nos dió una clase practica de cómo preparar un Pisco Sour. No te pierdas sus macerados!! Cenamos en el restaurante del hotel (la mejor quinua que probamos en Perú). Buen desayuno. Puede no ser la opción más barata del Colca (95 USD), pero tiene una excelente calidad-precio. Sólo una pega: la habitación es fría y sería recomendable algo más de calor que el simple radiador actual. Recomendable: pregunta a Fredy cómo llegar caminando a las piscinas termales 'comunales': baño gratis con incomparables vistas al río, junto al Colca Lodge. Gran estancia!!

Nice small hotel.Posted Feb 10, 2015
Pros: Location, cleanliness, and service.
Cons: No complaints about anything here.
Location: In a small village near a well known tourist site (Colca Valley).
All went well here and this is a very nice place. We were the only ones in the hotel, but the manager and the cook made us welcome and service excellent food.

Feliz EscolhaPosted Jan 2, 2015 on Hotels
Gostei muito do Killawasi Lodge. Ficamos uma noite antes do passeio ao cannyon del Cólca. Funcionários gentis, restaurante com boa comida e um diferencial que nos agradou muito: um passeio aos arredores do Hotel acompanhadas por um guia, excelente profissional, que nos fez conhecer um pouco da cultura local. Ao final do tour nos levou até a residência de um de seus irmãos, pudemos ver o dia-a-dia deles e ainda combinamos um jantar naquela noite na casa deles. Adoramos a experiência. Recomendamos esse Hotel.

pretty goodPosted Dec 12, 2014 on Hotels
Room was spacious, comfy. Breakfast was good. The view from our room and the balcony was great with the smoking volcano and the other volcanoes towering around. The whole area is well landscaped and has its own resident mocking bird. Their free guided hike to the ruins is good. Owner speaks fluent English and arranged Mirador del Condor trip each with Agotur Colca.We caught our own taxi from Chivay to Yanque where our 4M express bus dropped us off from Puno. After the condor trip, we walked to the plaza , caught a taxi and drove to Cabanaconde and hiked a couple of kilometers on the trail to Tapay oasis. Great views and we had a nice time for the 150soles we had paid the driver. We engaged the same driver for 15 soles for the next day drop to Chivay to catch our bus to Arequipa. People stay for just one night in Yanque but we stayed for 2 nights and liked it

A nice place to stay when going to Colca CanyonPosted Dec 6, 2014 on Hotels
We stayed in their new deluxe double room which was clean, spacious and lovely. Shower water was hot and the wifi signal was strong. Each deluxe room has its own front yard with two chairs overlooking mountains. Breakfast and dinner were good.

Very comfortable, nice and quiet place to stayPosted Nov 10, 2014 on Hotels
I spent 4 days there and I really enjoyed it. The room was huge, quiet, comfortable, very clean and with a good view. The personnel was very polite and eager to help. The restaurant was nice, clean and with a good view. The free breakfast was very satisfying, but weight-watchers beware. Arranging a tour to get there and a ride to the airport was hassle-free. These are the points that could be improved: - Internet is slow, and connecting to the WiFi network most of the times did not work. So, streaming videos is not possible. - The restaurant is relative too expensive, and does not have many options. - Breakfast is delicious, but I would suggest including whole grain bread, low-fat yogurt and oatmeal. Overall, I would definitely recommend this place.

Can't wait to go backPosted Oct 26, 2014 on Hotels
My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights and wished we could've stayed longer. We were pleasantly surprised by every element of the lodge. The room was beautiful, and immaculate. The view was absolutely incredible. You look right over fields, with wandering llamas and sheep into the Colca Valley. The manager (owner?) was really helpful and booked us cabs, trekking, trips to the hot springs, and to Cruz el Condor, all on short notice. The guides for trekking and the condor trip were both great. Everything we had at the restaurant was delicious, we ate dinner there both nights, and the included breakfast spread starts at 6 am, so you can eat before heading out. It's a bit secluded, Yanque is really small, but we liked that, and were glad we stayed there rather than in the larger Chivay.
