"Our group arrived from Canada at Willka T'ika for a retreat, and we were so amazed at this beautiful oasis in the Sacred Valley. The staff were kind and loving, accommodations way above our expectations, food out of this world and the gardens a feast for the eyes and soul. Our yoga studio was so beautiful - I'm ruined for teaching in any other space! I will be back!

Return Again & Again
""Absolutely loved this place. Great staff, vegetarian meals, yoga and spa treatments. Rooms are large, beautifully appointed and scattered throughout magnificent gardens. Highlights include garden baths at night for intimate star gazing, participation in local ritual ceremonies, concierge service with tons of opportunities for exploration and proximity to both Cusco and Machu Picchu. Will definitely return again and again."

This was my second visit to Willka T'ika, with a retreat group. The views are breathtaking and tranquil at all hours of the day, each garden with a different focus of flower colors and purpose. The mountains rise majestlcally on all sides and give a sense of power and peace. The staff is consistenly gracious, helpful and patient. The vegetarian meals are expertly prepared and totally satisfying, even for non- vegetarians. The feeling of tranquility and peace is pervasive. Rooms are large and clean. What more can I say?

It is my favorite place to be. There is so much life and peace there. You have captured the true spirit of the land. I am so honored to have met you and to experience your beautiful creation. Thank you so much. I will tell anyone going to Peru that their trip wouldn’t be complete without experiencing Willka Tika!

"For the past 4 years we’ve led life-changing yoga retreats to Willka Tika in the Sacred Valley of Peru. Willka Tika is the quintessential set and setting to experience authentic Andean culture while diving deeper into yoga practice. It is a Yogi's dream, with Chakra Meditation Gardens, inspiring practice spaces and world class healthy and conscious dining. It is the perfect take off point for excursions and exploration into the surrounding sacred Inkan sites. Best of all, however, is the loving and kind staff of Willka Tika who make you feel at home.

After visiting and scouting many retreats around the world over the past 23yrs of teaching, Willka T’ika is now among the top of our list. The attention to detail, incredible staff and amazing food is just the beginning. The facilities are spectacular, a well planned yoga space and their ability to seamlessly support our large group is beyond words. I highly recommend it.

It's simply "INCREDIBLE"
This was my third stay at Willka T'ika. Every stay is special. As you will no doubt read from other reviews, the space is indeed special. I think it's pretty incredible in the following ways: Incredible Team: Livio and his team are incredible. I honestly don't know that I've met a more loving, humble, kind soul than Livio. He embodies the love that is found in the Sacred Valley and the kind energy found at Willka T'ika. The staff is helpful in so many ways that the only thing I can encourage is for you to go and experience this for yourself. Incredible Space: From the buildings to the gardens, each seems to "fit" right into the landscape. The 7 different gardens are each manicured with love and offer a quiet place to simply be present. From the sound of the chirping birds, to the sound of silence, you realize that this is a special place in the mountains. Incredible Rooms: First, know that each room is different. Different sizes, configurations, bathrooms, and decor make each room special in its own way. Beds are comfortable, and it has all of the amenities you need. Incredible Food: I take groups to Willka T'ika and I explain that the vegetarian food will have flavors that many have yet to experience. And, when people try the food for the first time, they thank me. They describe it as incredibly flavorful, filling yet light, and pleasing to their bodies. Blend this with the custom herbal tea created by the staff, and your body finds a happy place that it may not have experienced to date. Every time I visit, I can't wait to find a way back. I've stayed at other places in the Sacred Valley, though I've not yet found anything as special or relaxing as Willka T'ika. Check it out for yourself. If I could give it 10 stars, I would... it's that unique and incredible.
