Captivating first class hotel, resembling a serene Andean village of stone cottages hidden in lush tropical forest, right on the doorstep of Machu Picchu.

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.

Our Expert's Opinion

There are 60 members of staff at the reserve looking after just a handful of guests, so you should be sure of excellent, personalised service throughout your stay. This is a remarkable, very Brazilian property where you can really relax in harmony with your tranquil surroundings.
