The Colca Lodge stands in the heart of the Colca Valley, against a backdrop of steeply rising rows of farming terraces. Inspired by the architectural style of the ancient Incas, the lodge buildings are built out of stone and mud bricks and have thatched roofs, meaning they not only have a charming, rustic feel, but have a minimal environmental impact on the valley. The Colca Lodge has a restaurant, bar, a lounge with a fireplace and a games room. There are no televisions or other modern distractions and all the water is heated by solar power. Guests can enjoy the use of the Lodge's hot springs (seasonal) and there is a spa offering a range of treatments and therapies (pay locally). The comfortably furnished rooms all feature en suite facilities and an outdoor terrace from which guests can admire the stunning views.
