Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Entering the grounds of Willka T'ika is like entering an assidiously cared for UNESCO botanical gardens. In addition to the unending variety of flora, honeybees dilegently gather pollen and a multitude of hummingbirds gorge themselves on nectar. Tucked away in the lushness are peaceful glades, artfully designed, perfect for meditation, yoga, writing...or any kind of contemplation. The rooms are well laid-out (both the deluxe and standard) with large bathrooms and excellent water pressure. The facility offers so much: two beautiful yoga studies with all props available (one room is immense), a small library, a music room, the dining hall with a lounge/bar area and fireplace. Willka T'ika was so clearly built with great love and intention and these vibrations are all around.

What a pleasure to ones Soul. Full of magic surrounded by the Sacred mountains and plush healing gardens. Stayed longer than expected due to the coronavirus quarantine and what a life changing experience it was. Terry and Tristen, the owners, kept our group well nourished with fresh and creative vegetarian meals, positive vibes, gorgeous well kept rooms, not to forget how they spoiled us with hot water bottles in the evenings, fresh hand picked teas available all through out the day, fresh roasted coffee in the mornings along with tasty baked breads and desserts in the evenings. These grounds are stunning, the location is perfect for all your anticipated adventures and they can provide accommodations for your entire trip from beginning to end. Including your arrival to and from the airport. Not sure how they provide such an amazingly profound experience with such attention to detail....but they do and staying here should definitely be your first choice when spending time in Peru. This wellness retreat has it all from yoga rooms, libraries, music rooms, chakra gardens, a bar, several places to just lounge and much more. I will definitely be visiting again soon. I can't wait to share Wilka Tika with my family!
Thank you to the most heartfelt, considerate, kindest staff I have ever encountered in hospitality...they treated us like family.
If you want the best...this is the absolute best!!
Blessings to Carol who had a vision years ago who created this paradise for all of us to now benefit from.
Pachamama be with you all..

I was a solo traveler staying at Willka Tíka for almost a week. They made me feel welcome and taken care of and I always had great company at breakfast and dinners with other travelers there. Their services and adjacent service providers are great. While I stayed at Willka I did some nearby hikes, visited Machu Pichu, got the most amazing massage, coca leaf reading, solar baths (absolutely amazing). The facility was super nice and the gardens where enchanting (lots of flowers and fruits and humming birds). Event though there was a yoga retreat there at the same time, you dont feel that there is a lot of people around or that a lot of people are staying at the retreat, everything is very cleverly tucked in. The staff was amazing and remembered ones name throughout and the two dogs that come along with the property are the best as well.

My wife and I just returned from a week at Willka Tika, and we cannot recall ever feeling more relaxed and invigorated after a vacation! Being a recent convert to vegetarianism, I was extremely pleased with the high quality and fulfillment of the meals. The luxury rooms and service were outstanding and no detail or request went unattended to. Terry, Tristen, and their amazing staff made the stay personal and arrangements for tours and adventures in the Sacred Valley, Machu Pichu, Cusco and anywhere we traveled to in Peru a seamlessly pleasurable experience. The perspective we gained on our lives in relation to the history and present state of human civilization is difficult to communicate in words, and really must be experienced to be fully appreciated. It was a cathartic experience! Whether you are travelling to Peru for it's Archaeological history, the friendly people, or excellent and varied adventures on land or sea, Willka Tika is a luxury retreat and respite which we highly recommend!

Our group originally came to restore ourselves - mind, body and soul - and that we did 10 times over. More than that, we were met by the most kind-hearted staff who went above and beyond to take care of us during the quarantine. They fed us the most wonderful and delicious meals with many foods fresh from their garden. They baked us a beautiful cake covered in flowers for our birthdays. They served us fresh herbs for our teas and coffee in the mornings. We always had access to filtered water. The managers and staff of this lovely Sacred Valley resort selflessly stepped in to take care of us and keep us safe during a crazy and scary time. I will forever be grateful and I will definitely be back! This trip was truly magical.

The staff was incredibly friendly. The food was all organic and meals prepared each day were nutritious and delicious with a very nice variety. The gardens are the most spectacular things - felt like I was staying right in an arboretum. The spa was amazing - I had a lovely massage and a soar bath which was an amazing experience everyone should try. I loved having fresh herbal tea available at all times and fresh coffee in the mornings. The warm pillows delivered to our rooms each night were the perfect cozy touch you don't know you need until you have it. Overall this place blew me away and I could not say enough good things about it. PLUS Terry and Tristen were incredible hosts and the most warm inviting people.

This was the first time our yoga group had used this site, it is a beautiful location with extensive lush gardens and nicely appointed rooms. The yoga room had all the necessary accessories and gorgeous views of the surrounding gardens. The only disappointment was the food, though fresh from the gardens it was bland in flavour with no aesthetic appeal. Having attended many yoga retreats with dedicated vegetarian meals, this was a let down as Peru has a wide variety of options and when we left the resort for local restaurants we were not disappointed. Unfortunately this lack of food understanding extended into the fact that one person in our group asked if they could have boiled eggs instead of the daily scrambled eggs that was offered and was told “no” that everyone would then want something different! I have worked in restaurants for many years and couldn’t believe this response. The couple that run the resort are friendly but would recommend that attention to this issue take priority as a larger aspect of a resort is the food that is offered. Close by is a compound that has an organic shop, bar and some fun restaurants.

I just returned from an incredible week at the lovely Willka Tika Retreat Center, and am already looking forward to returning again. As a yoga retreat leader and tour operator, this location was perfect and peaceful and provided my group a safe place to relax and commune with the Pachamama Spirit. Everywhere we looked was laced with beauty, from the creative artwork to the intentional gardens. The staff was trustworthy and helpful, and the group appreciated their friendliness and hardworking. If you are traveling to the Cusco region, I would highly suggest staying here for a positive experience during your trip, and if you are a group travel leader, then Willka Tikka is a must- and your group will thank you for it.

I could not recommend Willka T'ika enough as the perfect Oasis for a yoga retreat or vacation. I am a yoga teacher and yoga retreat leader and just wrapped up a perfect week with a group of 14 at Willka T'ika. Not only are the grounds and accommodations breathtakingly beautiful, but the entire staff and team are so kind, helpful and make you feel like family. Willka T'ika has everything you need right on the property: delicious meals, a spa, gorgeous yoga studios, meditation gardens, a library, fireplace and fire pits, etc. And if you want to leave to explore the Sacred Valley, the location is amazing- a short walk or drive to a cute nearby town, hikes available to do right from the property, and close by many nearby sacred valley attractions. I will absolutely be back again to host future yoga retreat groups!

HI and thanks for your question and interest. Willka T'ika presently does not have a resident yoga teacher and does not offer daily yoga classes to guests who are not registered in one of our scheduled retreat programs. If an overnight guest, however, wished private yoga instruction, classes can be arranged for an additional fee, depending on the availability of our local yoga instructor & the desired timing. --Vidya Gauci, USA Admin Manager for Willka T'ika Reservations

Hi there, Willka Tika is a 75-minute drive from Cusco, and is a half hour drive from the nearby train station of Ollantaytambu, where you ride Peru Rail to the base town of Machu Picchu, Aquas Calientes. The train ride is beautiful, and takes just under 2 hours each way.
