Peru: Machu Picchu: Sanctuary Lodge

This small, exclusive hotel, now belonging to the prestigious Orient-Express hotel portfolio, is at the entrance to the ruins of Machu Picchu. A stay allows you the opportunity to stay on at the Inca citadel after most of the visitors have left.

The Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge is the only accommodation to be located at the entrance to the ruins. It is a modern but stylishly designed hotel where attention to detail, ecological awareness and comfort have been thoughtfully combined.

You are instantly drawn to the dramatic views as the minimalist d├ęcor and natural colours offer little distraction from its outstanding natural surroundings.

The Inca ruins of Machu Picchu constitute one of the most recognisable landmarks in Latin America. The site is open from 6am until 6pm. The location of the hotel allows the opportunity to enjoy the ruins before the majority of visitors arrive.

Our Comment

Sanctuary Lodge is the only hotel within walking distance of Machu Picchu, but the hotel does not rest on its laurels; standards are reassuringly high.
