Aranwa Pueblito Encantado del Colca
The Aranwa Pueblito Encantado del Colca blends ancient Inca mysticism with modern luxury in a unique location on the banks of the Colca River. Arriving guests pass an old grain mill as they wind up the drive past a natural waterfall to the accommodations.
Other attractions on the site include a trout farm, flower gardens, and plots of vegetables and fruit. Hummingbirds sweep through the air from rooftop to rooftop, and guests can go mountain biking or horse-back riding to further enjoy the scenery.
Spacious guest rooms maintain the blend of modern and ancient styles, with polished natural wood floors, cream walls and bedding, and ample balconies looking out on the gardens and mountains beyond. All feature large seating/work areas, Wi-Fi Internet, and cable channels on flat-screen televisions.
An on-site spa offers a wide variety of treatments as well as a wet and dry sauna, indoor and outdoor pools, and a Vichy shower. Airport transportation and tours can be arranged with the staff, and private parking is complimentary for guests.
The property is just 10 minutes driving from the village of Chivay, and 3 hours from Arequipa, which is where the nearest airport is. La Cruz del Condor canyon is a short drive from the hotel and offers a great place to hike.
The ruins of Uyu-Uyu Inca settlement and Coporaque tombs are also easily accessible through the hotel's shuttle service and offer insight into the ancient Inca traditions of the region.
Food & Beverage
A generous complimentary breakfast buffet offers locally grown fruits, coffee, and bread baked using flour ground in the old mill on the site. Lunch and dinner also use ingredients grown on site, such as corn, quinoa, and other vegetables and grains.
The menus focus on Andean cuisine with a modern twist, and guest requests can be fulfilled. Room service is available, and lunch can be packed for guests leaving the property on excursions.
