As the only hotel located at the entrance to the mysterious Incan citadel of Machu Picchu, Belmond Sanctuary Lodge offers you exceptionally easy access to the world-famous ruins from early morning to late afternoon, when most of the day visitors have left. Tastefully decorated with earthy textiles and unrendered stonework, the hotel pays homage to pre-Columbian design, while the 32 ecologically friendly ensuite rooms and suites feature traditional fabrics, elegant wood and hide furniture, marble bathrooms and beautiful views across the epic citadel.
After an unforgettable day exploring Machu Picchu, you can look forward to fine Peruvian dining, such as stuffed alpaca, creamed sweet potatoes and fish ceviche at the serene Tampu Restaurant, as well as great fresh food and salads at the Tinkuy Buffet Restaurant and lively pisco sour tasting sessions at the bar. Take the time together to relax in the lodge garden, featuring an impressive array of orchids and birds, or indulge in a range of couples massages and aromatherapy treatments based on ancient Inca techniques.
