I have traveled the world and seen many fascinating places, and Willka T’ika is the one I plan to return to again and again. The gardens are exquisite, the food is brimming with vitality and the location is conducive to experiencing the ancient essence. Our warm-hearted hosts, Carol and Mark, have created an atmosphere of beauty and tranquility. Together with the very loving indigenous people of Peru, they have handcrafted an ideal and nurturing retreat. The combination of a daily Yoga practice, meditation in the gardens and hiking in the Andes re-connects us with the Earth. If you visit Willka T’ika you will experience the heart and soul of Peru.
Professional local therapists offer Willka T'ika guests optional Andean SPA treatments, including massage, facials, and breema sessions. Crystal light therapy sessions and outdoor floral solar baths under the southern skies are also available. Spa and healing arts services may be scheduled upon arrival at Willka T'ika.
