Belmond Sanctuary Lodge
Small, exclusive hotel right beside the entrance to Machu Picchu – the only one within walking distance.
This small, exclusive Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, now belonging to the prestigious Belmond hotel portfolio (formerly Orient Express), is situated right at the entrance to Machu Picchu. It is the only hotel within walking distance of the ruins.
You can enjoy the sight of the distinctive mountain 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.

Wonderful and attentive
"The Sanctuary Lodge was wonderful with very attentive service and we had our best night’s sleep there....lovely big bed..........or maybe that’s because we spent 3 hours clambering over the ruins before lunch!”JR Truro
