Waking to see the sun rise over a lost Inca city; looking out from a balcony at the sugarloaf peak of Huayna Picchu; relaxing in comfort just steps from a mighty citadel. These are among the unique experiences available at the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge, the only hotel located immediately adjacent to the great Inca sanctuary of Machu Picchu. The lodge affords visitors a unique starting point for their explorations of South America’s greatest wonder, as well as a peaceful place to contemplate what they’ve seen after the tour buses have left.
The lodge’s amenities start with its cozy, eco-friendly rooms, which provide a welcome refuge after a day’s trekking, and extend to its two gourmet restaurants, which use organic produce grown in the hotel’s very own gardens. A full range of massages and aromatherapies, based on ancient Inca techniques, are available, as are meditation classes to help you to tap into Machu Picchu’s deep spiritual energy.
