This utterly captivating first class Inkaterra hotel is perched on the banks of the River Urubamba in a private tropical forest reserve framed by Andean peaks, right on the doorstep of the continent's most celebrated destination: Machu Picchu.
Perfectly blending rustic charm with comfort and luxury, the award-winning property consists of a collection of tiled stone cottages set amid lustrous subtropical foliage and connected by atmospheric walkways. On entering the grounds, you feel you’ve discovered a serene Andean village hidden amongst the sprawling forest greenery.
Rooms and suites have wide, wood-beamed bedrooms with open fires, alpaca-wool blankets and Andean motifs that give a flavour of Inca culture without overpowering the calm, contemporary feel of the décor. Warm tones and soft light accentuate the welcoming cosiness.
A delightful glass-walled restaurant serves imaginative à la carte food in front of a spectacular river valley panorama. There is also a spa offering natural treatments inspired by regional therapies, including an Andean sauna, and guided bird-watching excursions and jungle walks along the hummingbird and orchid trails are complementary for all guests.
