Set beside the murmuring waters of the Urubamba River amidst luxuriant gardens resembling an Andean village, the Hotel Rio Sagrado takes you to the heart of the Incas’ mystery. With towering peaks and verdant meadows for backdrop, the hotel offers a magical immersion in one of the world’s most enchanted places, Peru’s Sacred Valley. You’ll feel its energy as you feed the hotel’s baby alpacas and explore the local flora—or simply sit watching the sunset beside the heated pool.
The Rio Sagrado is located in Urubamba, just 30 minutes from Cuzco, and its lower altitude makes it a perfect spot to acclimatize while you prepare your expedition to Machu Picchu. Shaman ceremonies, horse riding and rafting, traditional Inca therapies in a stonework spa: all this and more is at your fingertips, as you soak up the inimitable aura of ancient Peru.
