Las Casitas del Colca Review

It doesn't get better than this, at least not in Colca. Though it's no longer part of the Orient-Express brand, it has the same staff and amenities and is by far the most luxurious property around. During your stay you can partake of cooking classes, baby-alpaca feedings, and familiarization tours of the vegetable garden. Additonal activities—such as fly-fishing, horseback riding, and hiking—can be arranged, as well as treatments in the full-service spa. Thatch-roof bungalows with terraces have spectacular views over the silvery Río Colca. All outdoor terraces also have small private hot-springs tubs, an open-fire pit, and cozy patio furniture. Rooms are bright, with comfortable furnishings, including wrought-iron beds piled with heaps of elegant bedding and leather armchairs. The smooth stone floors are heated, and the deep bathtubs have glass ceilings so at night you can also soak in the amazing stars above, though you can get an even better view from the outdoor showers. An on-site Novo Andino restaurant serves creative fare using vegetables from the garden. Lunch and dinner are offered à la carte.
