Unexplored and liberating in its natural beauty, voyage for a stay on the remote Isla Suasi

Cost Per Night
Perfect For

Families & Couples

There are no other inhabitants on this island besides the residents of Suasi Lodge. Right on the northern shores of Lake Titicaca, this lodge has the virtue of being in a secluded and serene location away from the tourist routes. A nature lover’s paradise, the thatched roof and adobe cottages are enfolded in hills and overlook the water. 

From Puno, a five hour speedboat escorts visitors to the island, stopping on the way to visit the Uros floating islands and Taquile Island to experience the famed weaving technique of the Taquilenos. Upon arrival on Suasi, commit to a short hike up to the lodge nestled into the hill.

Suasi lodge is surrounded by a rambling, flower-filled landscape that has been cultivated by the owner. The island’s owner Marta built the original hotel using only materials from the island such as local stone and eucalyptus trees. Today, it still has the appearance of a romantic vision that has become a story of humble success. 

Due to its remote location, we recommend staying for more than two nights in Suasi Lodge. Take this time to adjust to the slower rhythm of nature, and observe the bountiful wildlife surrounding. Trek around the island, and watch the glorious sunset from the highest point. Rent kayaks or just sit back and enjoy the simple pleasure of the well-placed hammocks dotted around the lodge. 

Whilst relaxing and breathing in the fresh air, it’s worth bearing in mind that the island is home to a wide range of birds. Keep your eyes peeled for mountain caracaras, hummingbirds, Andean gulls, the endangered Titicaca greeb, as well as plenty of colourful songbirds giving delight without even being seen.

The Property

The 23 Superior Rooms are constructed with adobe and thatched with ichu (native high altitude grass). The Andean Cottage is a two bedroom suite right on the shores of the island, with privileged views over the expansive water and exclusive access to a jacuzzi tub, two fireplaces and a private beach. The lodge is filled with rustic charm and modernised by its environmentally forward thinking outlook. Susasi Lodge is entirely powered by solar energy and focuses on preserving the flora and fauna native to the region. 

Facilities

All rooms have bright skylights and balconies that offer breathtaking views of the lake. Pressurised oxygen is available upon request. Suasi Lodge has a small spa and a games room with a pool table. WiFi functions slightly slower than usual due to the remote location. The owner has developed an extensive collection of books and maps readily available from the visitor centre. Spend the afternoon having a beachside BBQ, or renting kayaks organised by the lodge, aboard a boat for a day’s excursion around the island. 

Dining

The hotel restaurant offers excellent food options such as wood-fired oven pizzas or more traditional Andean meals all sourced locally. There are plenty of options, and lunch is served from a BBQ on the patio surrounded by the beautiful gardens overlooking the lake. The food is flavoursome and simple. Beverages are available from the open bar - everything from water and soft drinks, wine, whisky, beer, as well as some snacks.

Why Wayfairer

At Wayfairer we are incredibly selective with the lodges we chose to partner with. Suasi Lodge is one of the most environmentally forward-thinking accommodations on Lake Titicaca, entirely powered by solar energy and the main hotel is built from Suasi Island’s natural materials. 80% of the hotel workers come from three small villages on the mainland shore of the lake, and the owner and founders of Suasi Lodge have an outstanding rapport with their local community. 

On a Wayfairer adventure, we ensure that all needs are catered for with a 24hr Luxury Concierge Service, and the most compassionate local guides in each location. Along with our care of clients, we also care deeply for the locations we enter into, respecting these and leaving places unscathed by our visit.
