About

Qolqas

Qolqas are Inca structures used as store houses for grains and textiles. Ollantaytambo is home to some very fine examples of these buildings such as those in Pinkuylluna, perched above the village.

From the Outset our objective has been to create a resort that offers our visitors the opportunity to travel back in time and to detach themselves from their everyday lives.  We want our guests to immerse themselves in the Andean experience and to walk away feeling enriched.

We aim to do this beautiful valley justice by:

  • Offering unadulterated views of the mountains and ruins around us
  • Using minimal impact architecture, which blends with its surroundings
  • Customizing our tents to offer our guests a very comfortable stay with the highest finishings
  • Using local produce wherever possible
  • Having a no-plastic policy
  • Promoting day trips outside of the traditional tourist route
  • Employing and empowering the local population, introducing them to best practices in hospitality of international standards
  • Recycling
  • Encouraging our employees to do community work and to contribute to the wellbeing of the nearby villagers
  • Hiring and training high energy, positive people that enjoy taking care of our visitors and creating for them a personalized experience

I proudly bear two nationalities of contrasting worlds. I studied Development Economics and pursued a career in banking spanning over two decades. Over the years I have helped finance projects in many Developing Countries and have witnessed both good and bad practices. My goal with this resort is to build something truly exceptional and sustainable. Where our guests, our employees, our suppliers and our neighbours all benefit and walk away feeling the experience has enriched them.
