Inkaterra Machu Picchu
Captivating first class hotel, resembling a serene Andean village of stone cottages hidden in lush tropical forest, right on the doorstep of Machu Picchu.
This utterly captivating first class Inkaterra hotel is perched on the banks of the River Urubamba in a private tropical forest reserve framed by Andean peaks, right on the doorstep of the continent's most celebrated destination: Machu Picchu.
Perfectly blending rustic charm with comfort and luxury, the award-winning property consists of a collection of tiled stone cottages set amid lustrous subtropical foliage and connected by atmospheric walkways. On entering the grounds, you feel you’ve discovered a serene Andean village hidden amongst the sprawling forest greenery.
Rooms and suites have wide, wood-beamed bedrooms with open fires, alpaca-wool blankets and Andean motifs that give a flavour of Inca culture without overpowering the calm, contemporary feel of the décor. Warm tones and soft light accentuate the welcoming cosiness.
A delightful glass-walled restaurant serves imaginative à la carte food in front of a spectacular river valley panorama. There is also a spa offering natural treatments inspired by regional therapies, including an Andean sauna, and guided bird-watching excursions and jungle walks along the hummingbird and orchid trails are complementary for all guests.

"This hotel was a great surprise. Located so well next to station with very efficient staff and all friendly and willing to help at all times. Having a fire lit in our room and hot water bottles were gems ! Restaurant and food very good."AL
"Wonderful hotel - would have been good to stay longer and avail ourselves of the trips they offered.”PW, Leighton Buzzard
"Again, a wonderful setting - a real gem. Upgraded to a suite which was nice - lovely to have a fire in the room at night! Very friendly staff, and excellent food. A lovely, cosy bar area."LR, London
This hotel is just stunning in its layout, location, design and service. Loved the orchid and bird walk organised by their ecocentre.. They have a spectacled bear in a reserve you can pay S38 pp. to walk to see it at 08 30 each morning. Our only slight disappointment was the dinners which didn't match our previous experiences. It just tried too hard to be fancy / nouveau cuisine rather than doing what all previous hotels had done so well with the wonderful meat, fish and veg...as the saying goes... keep it simple stupid! However, overall a truly wonderful place.CB, Sandwich
"We loved this hotel and wished we could have stayed longer. After a day sightseeing at Machu Picchu it was so tranquil and the situation and grounds were beautiful, particularly the hummingbirds and the walk along the river. We were upgraded to a superb split level room which was fantastic for the three of us. The afternoon tea (with tea made by the hotel) and the log fire in the room were really nice touches. Again the food was fantastic. The baggage service provided by the hotel whereby they picked up and dropped of our bags at the station was very efficient and meant we could make the most of our time at Machu Picchu."AER, Edinburgh
Absolutely brilliant. Even a bear sanctuary in the garden! It was terrific and we loved it. Rooms near train track (ours) did have noise early in the morning - first train sounding it's horn outside the room by 06:30 so might be helpful to other guests to ask for rooms further away from the train line but it didn't really bother us! Staff absolutely wonderful - they couldn't do enough to help.MD,Huddersfield

Amazing and connected to nature
"Inkaterra (Machu Picchu) was amazing - we had room 60 at the far end of the complex which had a glass balcony with a bed in it and you practically felt you were in the forest. Walks in the grounds were stunning, trips organised, good food, relaxed staff - perfect!”CM, Dulwich
