Belmond Sanctuary Lodge Cusco, Sacred Valley, & Machu Picchu

Steps away from the ancient Inca citadel lies Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge, the only hotel at this World Heritage site and the perfect place to explore Machu Picchu, hike through the jungle or experience the thermal baths in Aguas Calientes.

This luxury hotel offers 29 elegantly designed rooms and suites featuring traditional Andean furnishings, Alpaca blankets and all-modern amenities. Some come with a terrace offering impressive views of the forest and mountains.

The cuisine is classic Peruvian fare including stuffed alpaca, creamed sweet potatoes and fish ceviches, and is served at the serene Tampu restaurant.

After a tiring day, relax in the exotic gardens, indulge in a massage using ancient Inca techniques, or enjoy a spot of stargazing once night falls. The hotel welcomes families looking for unique adventure, but as there are no specific facilities for children it is most suited to those with older children.
