The enchanting Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel and Wellness is beautifully positioned along the banks of the Vilcanota River that winds its way through the fertile Sacred Valley. This spectacular retreat, built on the estate of a 17th century hacienda, offers the perfect setting from which to explore the region’s many attractions. Modern rooms, designed with a minimalist touch, boast views of the estate’s gardens, inland lakes or of the colonial mansion; and feature lovely ensuite bathrooms, private balconies or terraces. In addition to its rooms, guests can also take advantage of the hotel’s array of suites, each combining colonial elegance with bright accent colours associated with the Andes.
Be sure to come hungry when you book your stay – the Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel boasts a fantastic array of dining options. Spend an evening at the Gourmet Pukawi, whose menu reflects sophisticated variations of traditional Peruvian delights. Tuck into a mouth-watering pizza at the colonial kitchen of the Casona, or enjoy a light meal at the Rikhuna Restaurant. Those who need to quench their thirsts are equally spoilt for choice. Sip on a fine wine at Cava or head to the convivial Kusi Pisco Bar. When you are not out and about exploring the region, guests can also visit the estate’s museum, indulge in a soothing spa treatment, spend a night in at the movie theatre or take a dip in the sparkling plunge pool.
