Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo, Machu Picchu, Peru
Mountain lodge on the edge of Aguas Calientas village, close to the entrance of Machu Picchu
Price available on request, together with flights, transfers and guides, as part of a tailor-made tour of Peru
Inkaterra Machu Picchu is located in a five hectare cloud forest garden alongside the Vilcanota River and on the edge of the village of Aguas Calientes. Just a short shuttle ride from the entrance to Machu Picchu, the lodge serves as an excellent base from which to explore. Skilled artisans built the 85 room hotel using stone, adobe stucco and eucalyptus beams to create a delightful Andean village ambience.
Rooms are large, well equipped and located in one or two-storey whitewashed cottages, reached via stone pathways weaving their way through the tropical gardens. All the rooms and villas feature thick alpaca blankets and handmade wool coverlets, crackling fireplaces and comfortable spaces for sitting and dining, as well as spa-style bathrooms.
Activities & Experiences
Your stay at Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo is all about visiting the ancient Inca Citadel. However, the reserve on which the hotel sits is home to the world’s largest collection of native orchids, some 372 to be precise, as well as an impressive concentration of birds, hummingbirds and butterflies. Guided walks offer a fascinating insight into the flora and fauna here.
Facilities & Services
Meals are served in the impressive glass-walled restaurant overlooking the mountains and Urubamba river and afternoon tea is served daily in the cafe, ideal after a day's explorations of Machu Picchu. There is free WiFi internet in the cafe and the suites. The hotel's UNU Spa is one of a kind, offering treatments based on a combination of classical options with a mystical Andean approach
Weather & Seasons
April to November is the best time to visit Machu Picchu. The rainy season is typically from December to March, with the heaviest rains arriving in January and February.
Most people reach Cuzco as part of a wider Peru or Latin America tour, which our travel experts have tailor-made. However, if you wanted just to visit Muchu Picchu, it's a 13 hour flight from London to Lima, followed by an 80 minute domestic flight to Cuzco (overnight in Lima usually required - perhaps staying at boutique Atemporal), followed by a 4 hour train journey to Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo which is close to the railway station.
Also in Peru
Our Latin America specialists can tailor-make the perfect Peru or wider Latin America tour for you. Some of our other recommended places to stay nearby are Sanctuary Lodge, with its unrivalled proximity to Machu Picchu, Hacienda Urubamba in the Sacred Valley and Inkaterra La Casona in Cuzco. To explore the Amazon, the luxurious Aria Amazon is a magical way to enjoy an expedition along this mighty river, whilst Reserva Amazonica is a wonderful land-based riverside option.
