“A wonderful experience”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

I stayed with my partner for three days at this lovely hotel, while we explored Lake Titicaca. We both felt really looked after by the staff. It is a very peaceful hotel with amazing views over the lake. We were able to take amazing pictures of the sunrise as well as sunset. We went canoeing, hiking, exploring every corner of that beautiful island. I can without doubt recommend this wonderful hotel in a beautiful spot in my home country.

Nothing like a couple of nights on your own island. We were a bit off-season so there were a grand total of 12 of us (at the peak) in the hotel at any one time. The best was the solitude you could get by taking the trails away from the hotel. Very peaceful and you can get to places that make you feel like its your own island.

The food was very good (and too much of it).

Rather then lists lots of details, if you have the opportunity and time to stay here then really do it

A true getaway offering fabulous views of Lake Titicaca, scenic island vistas, and nature hikes throughout the island. Vicuñas roam the island and viscachas are glimpsed along the coast. Cormorants nest along the cliffs and the coast of Bolivia is seen in the distance. The best feature of this hotel is its tranquility and natural beauty that is everywhere. As an ecolodge, the hotel provides electricity only in the early morning and in the evening. Each evening a wood burning stove is fired up to keep rooms warm throughout the night in the tropical winter. The best meal is the lunch of grilled foods served outside under an arbor of native fruit plants. The comfortable lobby welcomes travelers to use the hotel's wifi to keep in touch and share a glass of wine. Away from city lights, the starry night sky is spectacular and a great way to view the Southern Hemisphere constellations. Staff is very attentive and knowledgeable about the area and its history. Do not miss this jewel of an oasis when visiting Peru.

We stayed 2 nights on Suasi in the middle of a frenetic trip through Peru. The island is a haven of tranquility, with abundent wildlife (vicunas, alpacas, birds, flowers, viscachas....).
We were pariculalry glad we stayed here because it showed us the beauty of Titicaca, which was not so easy to uncover from Puno (especially on Disney-uros!!). Food was good and the staff created a lovely relaxing atmosphere.

We spent one day one night here, which was just wonderful, a real oasis in our very hetic three week tour. This is an eco lodge, but all the usual needs are catered for. One can be as energetic (bearing in mind the altitude) or as lazy as one wants. There are plenty of walking paths on the island and the on-site first class ranger is always willing to take you on a new adventure. Beautiful sunsets can be seen from the high point of the island. The boat transfer was very enjoyable across amazing Lake Titcaca. It can be quite cold at night but bedrooms have a log fire! and hot water bottles are provide and placed in beds.

It is a magicl place at the far side of the Titicaca Lake. You get here my boat on a 3 hours trip all across the magnificence of the lake.

Imagine yourself dining a delicious at the top of the island having the whole espectacular view of the Titicaca Lake, it is priceless.

The accomodations are complete, it has a SPA, pool table within an area capable for 15 people so you can have and great time with the guests or with your friends.

You can check on the stars and near planets during the night in the observatory and also some of the rooms have a glass window in the roof so you can take a moonbath during the night.

During the day you can go kayaking, take a walk and enjoy the flora and fauna of the island, took somw great pictures of flowers I had never seen before.

The attention of the whole staff was incredible and extremely helpful since the there are no phones, no commercial electricity but solar power. I acquire a package that allowed me to drink all the possible wine, whisky, Pisco and sodas so I was the most part of the day happy, wity and eloquent talking to everyone and making friends even with the Lamas and the Vicunas of the island.

If you can afford it, this can be the most beautiful place to visit and enjoy in Puno... when you stare at the lake contemplating at its greatness, time stops and you become one with the landscape.

We decided to end our 10-day trip to Peru with a stay on Suasi Island at the Casa Andina Private Collection Hotel. Because the transfer only leaves once a day, we stayed overnight at the Casa Andina Private Collection in Puno, which was a nice experience in itself. The hotel arranged for the transfer, which was a boat ride across the lake with stops at the Uros Islands and Taquile Island, both of which were nice to visit, but the Uros Islands were especially unique. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Upon arrival to Suasi Island, we knew we were in for a treat. The island itself is beautiful. We had a delicious lunch and rested for the afternoon prior to the sunset hike. The guide for our hike was very friendly, and we very much enjoyed chatting with him about Suasi Island, Lake Titicaca, and Peru in general (even delving into U.S. politics!). Dinner that night was excellent, and as noted by others, the waitstaff is to be commended for their service and friendliness.

The hotel is an ecolodge, so lights went out around 10:30 p.m. or so (though, as noted, you can charge things in the lobby any time, and you will see lots of people checking e-mail and such there because it's also the only place with wifi). There's not really anything to do at night, so we were find turning in early. The staff light the fireplace before dark and place bottles of hot water on the bed to warm it. There is wood by the fireplace to keep it going, though I added a bit much and it got rather toasty! Overnight, the fire died and I couldn't figure out how to get it started again. Fortunately, the bed had plenty of covers :).

Breakfast the next morning was very good, with made-to-order eggs. I had an excellent massage as well. As for hot water, I would recommend showering during daylight, since everything is powered by solar panels. My wife took a shower after dinner and the water was lukewarm. I took a shower around 10am the next morning, after my massage, and the water was very hot.

Because we had a flight out of Juliaca leaving that evening, we arranged for a second lunch. Our transfer to Juliaca involved a short, pleasant trip by an inflatable motorboat to the nearest shore (about 10 mins), then a 2-hour drive to Juliaca. Another group of visitors took the long boat ride back to Puno (about 3 hours) (note, the boat to/from Puno is a large, enclosed boat, not the motorboat we took to shore), then went by road from Puno to Juliaca (about an hour). I would probably recommend the shorter boat ride and longer drive, as we got to see some very interesting countryside (though the roads left much to be desired).

Overall, we thought Suasi Island was a great place to stay for 1.5 days at the end of our trip. If you go knowing what to expect, you won't be disappointed.
