I can't imagine doing Machu Picchu any other way! Steps from the entrance to one of the most remarkable places on earth, it made for a very stress-free day. Being able to come back to the hotel after an early entry to shower, then re-enter Machu Picchu was ideal. The staff at Belmond were some of the best I've ever encountered. They were so friendly, helpful, and their English was impeccable! The food was unbelievable, as were the drinks and local entertainment. Lastly, the beds felt as if you were sleeping on clouds! If I ever return to Machu Picchu, I will be sure to stay again!
We stayed here for one night. It’s not cheap and there’s no doubt you’re paying a premium for the location, enabling you to easily visit Machu Picchu for two days - but the hotel backs this up by offering a wonderful experience. Our room was clean, comfortable and with a nice terrace. The staff are extremely attentive, and seem genuinely invested in making your stay special. And the food is outstanding; great quality and generous portions. Combined with the service, this feels like a fine dining experience. Vegetarian options were available and tasty. If you plan on eating at the hotel during your stay, it’s worth booking the all inclusive option - it’ll most likely be the most cost-effective option.
Rest Sanctuary at the steps of Machu Picchu
I took the whole package... what do I mean about this... I stayed in the Belmond Monasterio, Belmond Hiram Bingham and Belmond Sanctuary Lodge. If you are planning to visit Machu Picchu for more than a day trip then I suggest that you stay at the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge. It's literally 30 feet from the entrance to Machu Picchu. The best part of sleeping at the Sanctuary Lodge is that when you wake up you have an amazing view of the mountain and you buy your ticket online if you didn't already do so and enter and tour Machu Picchu; and the other best part of staying here is that after trekking around Machu Picchu for hours you can just enter the Lodge and enjoy the comfort of your bed. I had the pleasure of staying a night so I had a fresh ceviche and great fish dish. For breakfast I was served Eggs Benedict and French Toast. On my next trip to Machu Picchu I will definitely revisit my stayes at both Belmond Monasterio and Belmond Sanctuary Lodge and I will definitely use the Belmond Hiram Bingham Train to get there.
Worth staying here. 2 visits to Machu picchu. All inclusive for the whole time you are on the mountain. Rooms are small but adequate. Fridge full of assorted drinks included. We got upgraded to a room with a terrace and great views.
6 stars for the service!
I came to the hotel on my birthday and can’t thank the staff enough for being showered with amazing attention: there were gifts, singing, cake and genuine desire to make our stay as memorable as possible. Special thanks to Erick who helped us with a tour snag and Milagros who took the time to bring us to the jungle garden and showed us many species of native flora and fauna - never saw so many humming birds in one place! The hotel is situated right next to the entrance to the “Lost City”, has all necessary amenities, exquisite cuisine at the restaurant. Belmond Sanctuary Lodge is the best choice for a visit to Machu Picchu!
