Quinoa is the grain du jour of foodies right now since it's so good for you, and the Luxury Collection property has loaded an entire day's worth of activities with the stuff.
Guests can wake up with quinoa pancakes, breads or cereals at the hotel's Hawa Restaurant, although we'd probably take ours from room service since the rooms here look so soothing and the views so pretty.
The day would continue with the Libertador Hotels activity specialists, T’ikary, leading us on a ramble through quinoa-filled landscapes--via kayak, mountain bike and our own two feet. We would stop for a picnic lunch (more quinoa, but of course) by a lake before setting off to see the area's salt mines and agriculture circles of Moray Village.
Now comes our favorite part: returning to the hotel, we'd hit up the spa and get a Quinoa Facial. The grain is apparently rich in fatty acids, minerals, and Vitamin E and B complex--helping with cell regeneration and super hydration.
By this point, we might really be craving a flan for dessert, but if you're still ga-ga for grains, the chef does a special menu offering different dishes with quinoa as the main ingredient.
The Quinoa Trail experience is available at Tambo Del Inka year-round, with rates from $205 per person--not including accommodation. Rooms start at $276 + tax a night in September.
