This luxurious rainforest hideaway is just a stone's throw from Machu Picchu.

Set amid lush cloud forest in a private mountainside refuge, this hotel – one of National Geographic Unique Lodges of the World and also voted one of 'The Best Hotels in the World' at the Condé Nast Traveller’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2017 – offers charming white-washed cottages and is adjacent to the station in Machu Picchu town. Indulge in soothing treatments at the spa and unwind in the Andean sauna, set in a candle-lit eucalyptus hut. Explore your stunning surroundings on an excursion - you could visit an orchid collection and organic tea plantation, go birdwatching or take a twilight walk.

Take in stunning views of Urubamba River and dramatic mountains while savouring creative fusion cuisine in the glass-walled restaurant. Café Inkaterra serves fusion-style cuisine and has a traditional Amazonian thatched-palm roof overlooking Vilcanota River.

The rooms have locally crafted terracotta roofs and are nestled in 12 acres of lush gardens. Superior Rooms have a dining area and Junior Suites feature a relaxation area and balcony or terrace.
