If I could give Carol a 10 star review, I would. Her vision for Willka T'ika comes alive with chakra gardens and quite possibly the most beautiful grounds I have seen in all my travels. Fantastic vegetarian food, EXCELLENT service, the most attentive and friendly staff imaginable. Extremely comfortable yoga studios, spa services, hot baths under the stars, nighttime fire...

Wilka Tika is a healing oasis. If you are seeking a place to let go of old beliefs that no longer serve you...if you are seeking wisdom for the next path of your journey...or if you simply want to stay in a beautiful garden... There is no better spot.

Went as a couple to relax after the crowds of Cusco. Stunning gardens, delicious generous foods, wonderful staff, beautiful decor. We are not yoga people, and spent time in the garden, library, solar bath, and did the walk to the Salt mountains - we recommend them all.
