Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel


A modern hotel set at the foot of the famous Incan ruins.

This stylish retreat overlooks the Urubamba River and has its own shuttle bus stop for trips to Machu Picchu, which is just 20 minutes away. The modern interiors feature dark wood and Inca influences such as gold masks, ceramics and colourful rugs, and the hotel can arrange plenty of local experiences to immerse you in Peruvian culture. Learn how to prepare ceviche and craft the perfect Pisco sour, enjoy a traditional Pachamanca dining experience, trek to Mandor Waterfalls, pay respects to Mother Nature during a ‘payment to the Earth’ ritual, or discover the spiritual side of Machu Picchu with a mystical tour of the ruins accompanied by a shaman.

Soak up the incredible mountain and valley views from the restaurant which serves traditional Andean cuisine with a modern interpretation and a fusion of European, Asian, Africa and Peruvian cuisine. You can enjoy an early breakfast before exploring the ruins and sample local delights during dinner with a six-course tasting menu. The beautifully-designed rooms are either front facing with views over the road and river or located at the back overlooking mountains and the railway line.
