The Casa Andina Premium Puno is perched at the water’s edge and takes full advantage of its privileged location, with extraordinary views 3,800m above sea level. The majority of the hotel’s 46 guest rooms boast unparalleled lake views; the hotel’s gourmet restaurant is enclosed by a glass wall framing the lake and gardens; and a large, sunny terrace invites guests to contemplate Lake Titicaca’s seemingly endless expanse. Unique among Puno hotels, oxygen can be requested in all rooms (a bonus for guests having difficulty adapting to the high altitude).
The hotel is a reflection of its altiplanic location, built with rustic local materials, including stone, wood and clay tiles, while stone fireplaces warm the lobby lounge and restaurant. With Lake Titicaca the premier draw, guests can set off to explore the unique islands right from the hotel’s long private pier extending over the lake. The hotel also has its own private train station for easy access to the historic town of Cuzco.
