About Posada Santa Barbara

The property hosts three buildings, spread amongst an amazing setting of nature and tranquility. Here, you can awaken to breath-taking views of the sun rising over the mystical Lake Titicaca and the snow-capped mountain chain, then to the south the Andean landscapes of vibrant green mountains, and colorful countryside fields, alive with organic cultivation.
The constructions were made following concepts of ecological Andean techniques, utilizing what mother Earth gifts to us. The majority of materials, like the building stones for example, are dug right from these same lands and were used to construct these buildings, maintaining a close-to-Earth connection.

Accommodation Information

At the property, stretching a nice 8000 square meters, the structure sits nearby the 'mirador' (a circular structure with grand window-like arcs), overlooking the lands and lake. Here we have 2 rooms, one with 1 full bed, and the other with 4 single beds on the second floor, and on the first floor is where the restaurant and bar are.
There are also 7 rooms (from one to five people), each with two floors, natural heating, a private bathroom with solar-heated water, all overlooking the spectacular Lake Titicaca. There is a smaller mirador just next to the structure.
We also have an Andean Sauna fueled by natural wood fires and local healing herbs.
There is a conference room of about 120 sqm, for group meetings, reunions, etc.
