Wildlife & Spa Resort of the Week🐦⬛: Las Casitas, A Belmond Hotel, Colca Canyon in Yanque, Peru
Discover the serenity of the Andes at Las Casitas, an intimate hideaway nestled in Peru’s Colca Canyon.
A secluded oasis hugging the edge of the Colca Canyon
Las Casitas is a stone’s throw away from one of the deepest canyons in the world, nestled amid unique flora and fauna. Here a sense of serenity prevails, enveloping you after a day’s exploration with stunning views and an innate sense of peace. Las Casitas draws upon the warmth and authenticity of the valley’s local communities, harnessing the traditional beauty of this Peruvian valley. Stop the clock, marvel at the starry skies, and allow luxurious calm to descend.
Experience the ultimate Peruvian retreat – Blending effortlessly with the awe-inspiring natural environment, Las Casitas is the ultimate Colca Canyon Hotel. With just 20 individual casitas, a stay here feels a world away from the stresses of everyday life.
Set off on stunning canyon treks, ride Peruvian Paso horses, keep an eye on the skies in search of the Andean condor. Or make the most of your downtime, unwinding beside the pool, recharging in the spa, or simply delving into a good book. Timeless memories are guaranteed.
Flawless Peruvian cooking in a stunning setting – With the majestic Colca Valley as a backdrop, experience one of the best restaurants in Peru. Sample diverse mountain dishes crafted from produce grown in our vegetable gardens. Or sip our fresh local fruit cocktails on the terrace as an indigo twilight spreads slowly through the valley. Whether dining alfresco or in the ambient interior, we offer an unrivaled taste of the Andes.
Of all Peru resorts, none can match Las Casitas for authentic local style and indulgent accommodation. Sink into soft local fabrics after a day visiting ancient pueblos, or watch the sunset from your own panoramic plunge pool. Although every casita sports a lavish marble bathroom, we recommend the alfresco showers—perfect for soaking up the dramatic views. Better still, all our rooms are TV-free so you can focus on reconnecting with nature and the beauty of the valley.
