Inkaterra Machu Picchu Review

A five-minute walk from the center of town takes you to this stunning ecolodge made up of rustic, elegant stone bungalows with exposed beams and cathedral ceilings, set in a minitropical cloud forest. There are 372 varieties of orchids and 18 species of hummingbirds on the grounds, and lodging prices include several excursion possibilities such as bird-watching and orchid tours, as well as a twilight nature walk. Others are available at additional cost, such as a visit to the Spectacled Bear project. If budget allows, it's worth upgrading to a suite to take advantage of a private terrace and Jacuzzi. There are special services available for families, including kid-friendly guides. The restaurant overlooking the surrounding hills is first-rate—try the delicious crema de choclo (corn chowder).

Sky-High Andean Retreat
One normally doesn't think of sustainability and luxury as going hand-in-hand, but Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo has successfully united the two, creating a world-class recipe for optimum relaxation. Set in a cloud forest, among an orchid and hummingbird sanctuary, this eco-resort is the perfect backdrop for tranquility. With just the right mix of elegance, modern amenities, and traditional Andean décor, the rustic styled rooms (made of stone, adobe, and eucalyptus wood) radiate comfort. The attentive personal service keeps all worries at bay and there's plenty of pampering, be it sleeping on soft alpaca bedding, sipping Peruvian Pisco by the fireplace, drinking tea from the hotel's own tea plantation, soaking in one of the private outdoor hot tubs, indulging in the locally harvested gourmet fare, or visiting the resort's eco-friendly UNU spa—where even the botanical products are derived from flora grown on site. There will be little choice but to unwind here—and without in

    perfect place to stay

    everything about this hotel is just perfect but it's let down by the slow service in the restaurant and a very boaring menu
