Location
The Belmond Sanctuary Lodge is the only hotel at Machu Picchu: you simply can’t stay any closer to this extraordinary UNESCO World Heritage Site. Being right on the doorstep means that you can access the ruins first thing in the morning when other visitors are labouring up steep hills or negotiating buses. Without the crowds, you can relax and also enjoy sunset viewings.

Accommodation
The hotel’s 32 rooms and suites, along with all communal areas, are stylishly designed and decorated. With unrendered stonework and subtle textiles, the tasteful and calming ambience is well-suited to the adventurous traveller who is put off by opulence.

The restaurant specialises in Peruvian dishes, so this is the ideal place to try stuffed alpaca and creamed sweet potatoes whilst you enjoy the forest views through floor-to-ceiling windows. After dinner, perhaps retreat to the Tampu bar for a traditional muña tea or pisco sour.
The best view of Huayna Picchu can be found from the hotel’s spa where you will be able to indulge in massages, meditation and yoga.

During other downtime, there is a garden with more than 800 species of orchid. It is a great place to experience the local bird life.

Experiences
  • This is the best location at Machu Picchu for indulging in a private tour of the citadel, or to wander under your own steam without the crowds.There’s something magical about stretching and meditating as the sun rises over Machu Picchu.

  • The best views of Machu Picchu are to be found from the peak above. This two hour hike rises to an altitude of over 3,000m but the views are worth every drop of sweat.
  • Visit the Inca Bridge, following the original Inca Trail to Inti Punku. Look out for the spectacled bear.

  • Soak away the aches of the day with a dip at the Aguas Calientes hot springs, surrounded by the lush foliage of the forest.

  • Participate in a Pachamama tribute ceremony, where an Andean shaman will guide Mother Earth to bless you with good health and prosperity. Why not also have a coca-leaf reading?
