In the mid 1980s, tourists began to arrive in the Colca Valley, attracted initially by the views of the canyon and the majestic flight of the condor. The first adventurers were accommodated in disused construction camps left over from the Majes project. This was the time when, believing there would be an increase in tourism in the future, our founders decided to set up the first hotel in the zone; its main attraction were the hot springs. During the 1990s and the beginning of the present century, Colca Lodge, as a part of the tourism division of the Grupo Inca, started to grow steadily until it became one of the chief and most complete hotel establishments in Colca.
At the present time, the Colca Lodge team brings together shareholders from Arequipa with a commitment to the development of sustainable tourism, managers imbued with the philosophy of providing professional hospitality for their guests, and friendly local people who are glad that Colca Lodge offers them a means of supporting their families. Providing our guests with personal attention, which is the focus of our day-to-day business, care of the natural environment, conservation of and respect for the local culture, together with the firm wish to continue offering opportunities for sustainable development in the area, are some of the main concerns of our team. We hope your visit will be enjoyable.
Colca Lodge is located in the Colca Valley, four hours away from the city of Arequipa, at 3,250 meters above sea level. Situated in one of the area's most spectacular spots, the Colca Lodge combines its attractive rural design with all the comfort needed, while harmonizing with the environment. If you are looking forward to a complete rest, Colca Lodge is your best option. The personalized service and the peaceful atmosphere of the facilities will turn your visit into an unforgettable experience. The lodge is located in Fundo Puye, Yanque - Caylloma - Arequipa. It has a unique style and it has been built entirely in stone, mud and straw, which are the most common materials used in the Andes. It also has thermal baths in stone pools which are fed by volcanic hot springs and were built in harmony with the environment.
Colca Lodge is privileged to enjoy a very special location amid pre-Inca agricultural terraces beside the River Colca. The 45 rooms they offer to their guests have a wonderful view towards the valley and are built around the gardens and courtyards which make up the hotel. The style is rustic, with thatched roofs and some of them have adobe walls; these help maintain inside temperatures, thus collaborating with the natural environment. They are currently implementing an ecological heating system which uses the geothermal energy available on the site of the hotel. The bathrooms are supplied with hot water from solar heaters. Bathrooms are small but complete, with a special touch just for you. All their standard rooms, which number 27, have small terraces where one can sit in the sunshine and admire the unique local Andean landscape. They also have 15 quadruple rooms fitted with two beds up in rustic mezzanines built out of eucalyptus logs. There are two suites suitable for families

At their evening buffet, served in the hotel`s main restaurant, they offer you a special fusion known as Alpandina cuisine. The concept is to achieve once and again a perfect harmony between the flavours and food values of Andean products and certain alpine techniques, particularly from Switzerland. The result is an original and delicious style of cooking, both flavourful and well balanced.
Among the services offered by Colca Lodge, there is no doubt that the hot baths occupy a high place. Built in natural surroundings down by the river, the three baths are fed from a main source whose temperature is 80 degrees Celsius. The hotel also has a complete hot-spring Eco-spa where they offer a variety of massages, facial treatments, applications, Jacuzzi and steam room.
