Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge Review
This upscale hotel at the entrance to Machu Picchu puts you closest to the ruins, a position for which you do pay dearly, but nowhere else can you sit in a hot tub, sip pisco sours or tea, and watch the sunset over the ruins after the last of the tourists depart each afternoon. At night any astronomer or novice stargazer will appreciate the big Andean sky. In the morning, not only will you have the thrill of watching the sun rise over the crumbling stone walls but you'll be the first ones through the ruins' gate. For the past 10 years, Orient-Express, owners of PeruRail, have run the elegant hotel and made the once-government-owned hotel a vacation in itself, considering that all 31 rooms come with top-of-the-line amenities. While expensive, the all-inclusive rates include meals from the restaurant and bar, which is exclusive to hotel guests. There is an additional restaurant that has an excellent international menu and serves a popular S/100 buffet lunch open to the public.
