“Truly Magical and INSPIRATIONAL!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

This place is like NO other place on earth. You get the chills the minute you enter the gates. The gardens mesmerize you with their scents, colors, and shapes and the chakra gardens embrace every one of your senses. The rooms are immaculate and spacious with amazing views. The staff is delightful and full of passion. The massage therapists are the best I have EVER had!! The most touching part however is Carol the owner who has built this gem in the hills of Peru from rubble. She has also dedicated much of her success to helping local children attend school and actually build a school. There are no words to describe what this one woman has done to change the lives of so many. I am so inspired I plan to help!!! HIGHLY encourage you to visit the school and meet the cherubs who attend. They are taught skills so that begging is not their way of life. They walk for hours in the cold to get there! It will change your life to meet these wonderful children!!! It changed mine!! This is a place that will forever remain etched in your heart and soul. It holds the secret to life...

My husband and I stayed at Willka T'ika in May of 2009. We absolutely adored the place. The gardens are magnificent and we would spend much of our time soaking up the beauty. We were lucky enough to be there while Carol was there and to be able to have her walk us through the gardens providing us with many teachings on the various chakras, the peruvian culture, the horticulture and the history of the place which I found quite fascinating. The food was incredible and the staff was extremely accommodating, lovely and helpful. I highly recommend this place.

My stay @ Willka Tika last year was beyond my expectations for hospitality, food, lodging, staff, landscaped grounds, and visits to the Sacred sites. The stay changed my Life in many, many ways. I would and have highly recommended a visit to Willka Tika to Family & Friends. I am planning another trip in the near future, and will be taking a group of students with me. A trip of unforgettable experience! Sincerely, Donna Lambdin, Reiki Master Teacher & Practitioner

Willka Tika is an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind place located in the heart of Peru, in the Sacred Valley. Carol Cumes has created one of the most magical gardens and retreat centers on planet Earth! I plan on returning to Willka Tika again with another one of our groups in the near future. I highly encourage anyone looking for amazing beauty, fabulous lodging and food to be sure to go there. Make a special visit to sit with the 1000 year old Lucuma tree who is the sacred guardian in the gardens standing regally in the shadow of the Apus, the sacred mountains. Thank you, Carol, and the all of the spirits of this sacred land!
