Connect with Pachamama
As stated with the name, this hotel welcomed us into the sanctuary that is located right beside the majestic renown Machu Picchu; one of the wonders of this world. What we highly recommend is everything about this place. The service is absolutely excellent from the time that you enter, Michael, Marjorie, Geovani, Josue will treated you like royalty. At the entrance You see hummingbirds in a sanctuary plus a beautiful handwork of wood metal and rock. The restaurant Tampu is above the stars it is given because of its exceptional Peruvian and fusion cuisine. In keeping with the service whatever you asked for you get, even what is not on the menu. The hotel staff will treat you in that kind of elevated status as you move around and avail yourself of the facilities like the garden, terraces, the nature paths thru the Herb gardens, which are used by the kitchen season your food. It was awesome to see the sue-chefs picking the herbs for our dinner. the rooms are petite beautiful cozy sanctuaries as the name implies. As you step out on your privilege terrace into the gardens it’s only a deep breath is able to describe the feeling as words can not. We love this place and all the feeling, emotion, and service we experienced.
Machu Picchu is open to the public and The Sanctuary Lodge is ready to serve you!
We just had one of the best memories of our lives written at the Sanctuary Lodge. We got engaged in from of Machu Picchu! The staff's friendliness, attentiveness and care were irreplaceable. They really put effort in making us feel like the most important people in the world!
Great hotel with amazing views
We were lucky to be able to go to Machu Picchu after the recent protests and the fact that it was basically just opened up two days before we were scheduled to go in. The hotel did a great job answering my questions about a potential cancellation that could have happened if the protests would have continued. We received a text the day of our arrival alerting us that it was raining in Aguas Calientes. I also got a call to ask if I was in the train already (I was). We were received in the bus station at around 3 pm by Rocío who was lovely. The weather was clearing up and looking beautiful. When we got to the hotel, the staff gave us two lemonades (choice of hot or cold beverage) that were delicious. They checked us in and we went to our room. A beautiful room with what I think was the best view out of any hotel I've been in. The food was really good. I tried the alpaca, the quinoa, and the ceviche. I liked the alpaca the most. The breakfast was delicious. The chicharrón was excellent. The juices were really good and the breads were the best. The jams were made right there. It was all made to order as buffets are not allowed due to covid-19 restrictions. Spa services were not available but there were only 3 rooms occupied total so we basically just had the hotel to ourselves. The pisco & papas were really good. I got to make a pisco sour and eat delicious potatoes.
Incredible stay at Sanctuary lodge
We were a bit weary of spending so much money to stay at the lodge when accomodations were much cheaper in Aguas calientes but we are so glad we did. Staff was attentive, professional and incredibly accomodating and small things like knowing our names was impressive. The views were breath taking, The food was terrific (hard to understand how they can have such fresh amazing meals in such a remote location) I celebrated my 5oth birthday here and it was a birthday to remember!
The best way to do Machu Picchu
For traveling during COVID-19, this is the way to go. Worth it just with the views alone from the spectacular gardens. The rooms are small, but luxurious. Breakfast was incredible each morning. The pisco tasting was fun!
