  • Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel
    Courtney Regan
    5 May 18, 2014

    Inkaterra is completely synonymous with tranquility. The hotel is located at the base of Machu Picchu in the small town of Machu Picchu Pueblo (otherwise known as Aquas Calientes). As I walked through the town and over the bridge towards the hotel, it was like entering another world. The artfully overgrown gardens and stone steps welcomed me into an utterly serene world.

    The hotel’s main buildings and casitas are beautifully integrated with nature; it’s almost hard to distinguish the buildings from the lush surroundings. Meandering through the property, I was pleasantly surprised to find the gift shop, sauna hut, pool area and countless other places to rest and soak up the natural beauty. One of my favorite moments of my stay was during the daily afternoon “tea hour”. I grabbed some local tea, brownies, an umbrella and melted into the spa, soaking up the unreal environment.

    Later that evening I dined in the main dining room, which serves daily breakfast and three-course dinners (included in the room rates). Not only was the food beautifully presented it was flavorfully divine. The warm and friendly staff, who made sure I was completely satisfied, only enhanced the experience. Of course the pisco sours on the porch overlooking the powerful Urubumba River didn’t hurt either.

    Back in my casita, I curled up by the fire with a good book and rested my bones, tired from a day of exploring Machu Picchu. I found it almost impossible to wake up the next morning as I was so utterly relaxed. After entering lobby I found I wasn’t the only one with this “problem”. Several other people were so relaxed they had fallen asleep on the luxuriously comfortable couches. I later learned that Inkaterra offers several room categories such as Junior Suites, which offer private sun decks and outdoor showers. I couldn’t imagine having to leave those rooms…

    Inkaterra has received countless awards and recognition for their sustainable tourism initiatives. In-house ecological excursions such as a tour of the orchid garden, nature walks, teahouse and bird watching are also included for hotel guests. This innovative eco-tourism is proving that luxury can finance research and conservation to improve the quality of life for the local population and preserve the natural habitat.

    The Inkaterra family consists of two other properties: La Casona in Cusco and Reserva Amazonica in the Amazon Basin. When visiting these parts of Peru, there truly is no better place to stay.

    Lovely, lush tropical gardens provide the site for the many casitas at this fantastic hotel. The train station and bus stop for the trip to Machu Picchu are footsteps away. The rushing sounds of rhe Urubamba River fill the air. The food is fabulous.

    We loved this hotel. The perfect place to relax after getting up at 5am to hike Machu Picchu. I would definitely recommend staying here over The Sanctuary.

    We took the train from Cusco to Aguas Calientes Station and then stayed at this hotel. We were able to visit Machu Picchu about mid-day the day we arrived and then spent the night in Aguas Calientes at the base of the mountain. You have to take a bus up to Machu Picchu from Aguas Calientes. Arriving at mid-day was not ideal as the place was completely full. However, the next morning we got up early enough to hike to the gate where the Inca Trail ends and watch the sun rise over Machu Picchu - an unforgettable experience. The hotel also includes a spa and has little bungalow rooms set looking over the river. I would have loved to have spent a week there.
