We stayed for 2 nights in this cute lodge with super friendly guy Frank (man for everything) . He was very helpful organizing everything(local transportation, trips for hiking with Fred etc)
We really can recommend this lodge for visiting the Colca Canyon.
Fred (our guide doing the hiking speaks excellent English and explains a lot).
All in all - a little nice oasis in Yanque. Distance to Mirador del Kondor apprx 50min by local taxi guide.(what we recommend.. invest some 30$-40$ for a private tour 1/2 day .. so take your time at the mirador it's incredible... without rush rush of a official tour)

We had specifically chosen to stay at Killiwasi Lodge in preference to the hotel suggested by our tour operator and were so glad that we did this.
On arrival we could see that this hotel was going to be a bit special with its location almost on the edge of the canyon and an extraordinarily friendly reception. We were shown to our rooms which thankfully had heaters which were necessary as the temperature drops quite sharply at night.
Our stay included dinner and we wandered over to the separate dining block. Before dinner the barman gave us a demonstration on how to make the perfect pisco sour, and then let us have a go ourselves. The results were excellent and did not last long!
Dinner was excellent with friendly and efficient service. The following morning's breakfast was also great with a good selection on offer.
From the hotel there is a fantastic round trip walk of about 4 km that follows the canyon edge including crossing over by footbridge and returning by another by the thermal baths. Fantastic views and a great way to pass a couple of hours.
We would have loved to spend another night at this hotel but will have to find a way to visit on another occasion.

We booked a 2 day, one night stay here last week and we couldn't have been happier with our decision. It was a great tour from Arequipa. We stopped at many places on the way. We were on a tour bus. Killawasi Lodge was so nice. The rooms were very nice and the level of service was wonderful, they made us feel so welcome. All the rooms have a veranda with a view, a heater, hot showers and more amenities. Lunch and dinner at the lodge were reasonably priced and very good. I think lunch was about S/20 per meal. Dinner was around S/30 per meal. Breakfast was included. The view from the restaurant was amazing. It's glass all the way around. The 3 hour hike they offered with a guide, ours was Freddie, was wonderful. It was included in our stay.
We wished we could have stayed at least another night. If you have the chance...go!

I booked a one night stay + two day Colca Canyon tour with Killawasi Lodge based on TripAdvisor and other blog reviews read during my trip research ... and I am so glad I did! The room was cozy and clean, and had a beautiful view of the hotel grounds and canyon. Frank was so welcoming and helpful on our arrival and throughout our stay. Their onsite restaurant was great and the food delicious! The tour they helped connect us with was absolutely fantastic! It was insightful, and we learned about and saw so much of the rich history of the Colca Canyon.

Killawasi Lodge and our Colca Canyon tour is definitely a major highlight of our trip to Peru! We will definitely stay again whenever we have the chance to return.

We came to stay at the Killawasi based on a friend's recommendation and were so glad we did! This small hotel is new construction, simultaneously cute and elegant, and perfectly set on the edge of town so as to have great views of the canyon and farmlands. It's a 3 minute walk to the town square and also easily accesses a nice path to the river/ gorge, all with awesome views. We ate very well while staying at the Killawasi in their nice dining room - both breakfast and dinners. The staff was perfectly attentive. Can't say enough good about this place. Would definitely go back/ recommend to friends.

This wonderful hotel is in Yanque, about 15 minutes from Chivay. Jose was extremely accomodating (he responds to emails very quickly). We booked our Colca Canyon tour through him which included one night at the lodge. The room was very large, clean and had all amenities (including wifi). The restaurant served excellent food and had a lot of choice given its small size. The views from the room and the restaurant are excellent and make for a relaxing stay. As part of our Colca Canyon tour Jose set up a trek around Yanque and even though it rained, the trek was very enjoyable and the guide educated us on the surrounding area and all of the plants/crops that were growing at the time (we were there during the rainy season). When we left the hotel we forgot an important item of ours and after emailing Jose he found a way to send it down to Arequipa the next day so we didn't have to leave Peru without the item. Customer service was great and everyone there spoke Spanish and English. I highly recommend booking this hotel when in the Colca Canyon.

Excellent accommodation and amazing views from our room window. The restaurant served nice food but a bit on the expensive side. The walking your was excellent and relaxing. Overall great. The canyon and condor watching tour we booked through them was poor but it was a different agency. However they lose one star for that as they need to do some quality control of their contractors.
