Many visitors spend a mere day at Machu Picchu and check the famous site off their bucket list, but there are a number of benefits to spending a few extra nights in the area. If you arrive the night before your visit to the site, you can be first in line when it opens the next morning and take some photos before it gets crowded. Additionally, it’s nice to have a short journey back to your hotel after a long day spent exploring the site.
When it comes to accommodation around Machu Picchu, Inkaterra is a category all on its own. The height of luxury travel in Peru, Inkaterra is more than a hotel – it’s a veritable retreat. The hotel has received countless awards, including recognition on the Conde Nast Gold List of the world’s best hotels. Enclosed within a cloud forest, this glamorous jungle lodge is surrounded by 12 acres (5 hectares) of stunning natural beauty.
Accommodation: Stay in Private Casitas
Every amenity at Inkaterra is designed for comfort. Accommodation is provided in private “casitas” (little houses), each of which includes a fireplace and spa-style bathroom. Some casitas also feature private terraces and Jacuzzis.
Spa: Try Andean-Inspired Treatments
The hotel’s opulent spa offers a range of rejuvenating therapies. Many incorporate traditional Andean ingredients, allowing you to continue immersing yourself in the local culture as you relax.
Dine on Andean Fusion Cuisine
Dinner and breakfast at the hotel’s fine restaurant are included in your room rate. The restaurant’s Andean fusion cuisine is outstanding, and the view of the surrounding mountain and river is equally impressive. Guests also enjoy free tea time and happy hour.
Activities: Enjoy Exciting Short Excursions
The hotel also offers a variety of wonderful excursions, including nature walks to see tea plants, birds, butterflies and medicinal plants. You can also go on a bird-watching expedition, visit a local farm and admire the beauty of the orchid trail.
