Situated on a lush, terraced hill that rolls gently down to the banks of the Urubamba River, the beautiful family-friendly Belmond Rio Sagrado Hotel is built with natural materials to resemble an authentic Andean village. Creating a picture perfect scene, a series of freestanding villas are connected by footpaths lined with fragrant tropical flowers. The hotel’s 21 ensuite rooms and suites are constructed from natural stones and wood, and feature under-floor heating, local artwork and textiles, as well as private flagstone terraces with views across the rushing waters of the river. Spacious bathrooms feature a glass shower box, with an oversized rain-shower head, which feels open to the sky and valley. There are also two small villas, with three ensuite bedrooms, a living area and a kitchen that are ideal for families.
When not enjoying the horseback riding, hiking, quad biking, paragliding, fishing, rock climbing, river rafting, and cultural visits the valley has to offer, guests can indulge in superb Peruvian cuisine created from locally sourced ingredients on the serene terrace of the hotel’s restaurant. The family can enjoy a soothing treatment at the Spa Mayu Willka, a charming wood and stone complex veiled by indigenous trees within a natural bouquet of wildflowers.
