Aranwa Pueblito Encantado del Colca
Mid-rangeOverall good quality. This is a wide category, but you can expect a comfortable stay.
Aranwa Pueblito Encantado del Colca
This welcoming, family-friendly, modern hotel is set in lush gardens at the foot of agricultural terracing by a bend in the Colca River and has magnificent Andean views. It’s a lovely base for exploring the region, with a spa, two swimming pools and a restaurant serving an elegant take on Peruvian Andean cuisine.
Aranwa Colca is in a superb setting, on a bend in the Colca River, surrounded by agricultural terracing and with fantastic views of the Andes and the Colca valley. At the entrance stands a charming old stone water mill, a contrast to the modern design and décor of the hotel itself. The relaxing grounds include two natural waterfalls, a trout farm and an organic vegetable garden. Aranwa Colca is perfectly located for enjoying all that this region has to offer. It is just a few miles from attractions such as La Calera hot springs and the craft market at Chivay, and only a mile from the village of Yanque, where traditional dance performances are given each day.
The décor is elegant and contemporary, with clean lines, tiled floors and a restrained use of colour. The El Molino restaurant has a chandelier made of ceramic hummingbirds, a tribute to the hummingbirds which frequent the gardens. Traditional and regional dishes are made from local and home-grown produce, or you can opt for a wood-fired pizza, while lighter meals are available in the Cabana Bar.
The UNNO Spa features a jacuzzi, individual and couples’ massage rooms and a Vichy shower. The hotel boasts two swimming pools – one outdoor, one indoor. The latter is solar-heated with wonderful views of the mountains and river.

“Aranwa Hotels are owned by the San Pablo Group, the largest private health network in Peru. The group has established a community medical centre in Urquillos and given schools and local communities access to their hotels’ internet system. It promotes environmental and conservation practices amongst its guests and uses organic products with recyclable and biodegradable packaging in its spas. In addition, the Group works closely with organisations such as the Blue Whale Foundation.”
