Machu Picchu: Belmond Sanctuary Lodge

Visit Us

Belmond Sanctuary Lodge

This small, exclusive Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, now belonging to the prestigious Belmond hotel portfolio (formerly called Orient Express), is situated right at the entrance to Machu Picchu. It is the only hotel within walking distance of the ruins, allowing guests the priceless opportunity to stay on at the Inca citadel after the last bus has shuttled day-visitors away, as well as before the first tourists arrive each morning. It’s the only way to enjoy South America’s most celebrated wonder in such peace and intimacy.

You can also enjoy the sight of the distinctive hump of Huayna Picchu crowning the landscape from several points in the hotel, including from the serene private terraces of some of the bedrooms – an ideal spot for breakfast. 

However the location is far from Sanctuary Lodge’s only asset: this is a modern, stylishly designed property where attention to detail, ecological awareness and comfort have been thoughtfully combined. You are instantly drawn to the dramatic views as the minimalist décor and natural colours deliberately offer little distraction from the outstanding surroundings.
