4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

We stayed here for 3 nights while exploring the rim of colca canyon and hiking in the area. The hotel is very pretty and located only 1 block from the plaza de armas where the bus from Arequipa stops, so it was convenient. The room was clean and comfortable. The food is also very good - we also ate at the restaurant in Pachamama hostel and this was better.

The downside - it was probably low season when we arrived, and i think the place was not adeuately staffed. I.e. you couldn't eat just whenever you wanted, they would have a fixed time for dinner and all residents wouold eat at the same time. service was a bit slow. Otherwise I would have given it a rating of 5.

The mystical landscape, its archaeological beauty, places, the wealth of its past, sport of adventure, alive customs and mainly its people; the Colca can be enjoyed when visiting.
These comments helps us continue to improve level of service and staff, we thank those that qualify us with good comments for that reward our effort, but we also value a lot the critics on our errors, it allows us to know about our errors and to think in how to overcome them and to make that all, or the great majority of the visitors to the Colca, transform those memories into unforgettable experiences

We would recommend the Kuntur Wassi Hotel in the beautiful Colca Canyon to travellers. The staff was thoughtful and attentive from the time we arrived, offering us hot drinks and accompanying us to our room to make sure we had everything we needed including an electric heater. The rooms are well equipped with eco friendly furniture: desk, chairs, night table, suitcase storage, and a clothes hanger. The restaurant serves excellent food. Try their ensalada mixta along with any entree. Estuvo muy rico. Beautiful bedspreads made by the local artisans cover warm blankets and clean, crisp, quality sheets. We enjoyed the staff and facilities at the Kuntur Wassi Hotel.

This is by far the nicest place to stay in Cabanaconde.

We had the Kuntur Wassi suite, a small but adorable suite, with a stone bath, and a private garden outside overlooking the canyon.

The staff was really nice, and gave us plenty of pure alpaca linens to fight the night cold.

The young chef at the restaurant served us some of the best food we had in Peru, with fresh local products, and everything was really well presented. A marvel considering the price and the remote location for the hotel and the town.

Go there if you want a getaway from Arequipa, and want to travel on your own and stay clear of the tours starting the city.

Cabanaconde is a small, rather dusty desert town where I was expecting rustic, clean and decent accommodations and nothing more. I was totally unprepared for the charm and beauty of the Kunturwassi, from the cascades of pink flowers tumbling down the stone steps of the rear building where my clean, comfortable room was located, to the soothing sounds of the occupants of the nearby poultry run raising expectations of excellent meals to come. And those meals exceeded my expectations -- the owner and his staff pulled out all the stops for our group of 40 runners and hikers; the quality and variety of the food was amazing. The hotel staff did not seem at all stressed by the sudden arrival of our huge group, but rather appeared to be thrilled to have us there. Highly recommended.
