Located in Plaza Las Nazarenas, a short ten-minute drive from the airport, award-winning Inkaterra La Casona is Cusco’s first boutique hotel and the first Relais & Châteaux property in Peru. Encompassed by the dramatic Andean scenery, an immaculately restored 16th-century manor houses the beautiful hotel. 11 suites surround the main patio, as well as a dining room and spa, both of which use locally sourced products.
Spanning almost 100 acres and surrounded by the green mountains of the Sacred Valley of the Incas, award winning Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba is nestled in the countryside between Cusco and Machu Picchu. Championing sustainability with its Earth to Table concept, guests are encouraged to pick their own produce from the 10-acre organic plantation. With the recent opening of the Mayu Spa, guests are able to enjoy treatments using products derived from native medicinal herbs, whilst soaking in the spectacular views of Inkaterra’s organic orchard and the neighbouring peppertree forest.
With 83 whitewashed casitas and villas set amongst terraced hills, waterfalls and stone paths, award winning Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel is a magical Andean village, enveloped in magnificent scenery. With 214 bird species and the world’s largest native orchid collection (372 species) in their natural habitat, the hotel embraces and nurtures the natural beauty that surrounds it.
Inkaterra Hacienda Concepción has 25 private cabanas perched elegantly atop stilts, dotted around the estate and five rooms located in the main house. A botanical garden, private natural pond and cacao plantation can all be found at the property, with a demonstration of the chocolate making process offered as one of the hotel’s many activities. Other excursions include visits to the beautiful and solitary Lake Sandoval and a water mirror where visitors can expect to see wildlife, including Howler monkeys and giant river otters. Programmed excursions are led by local explorer guides, guaranteeing guests an authentic and unparalleled trip into the heart of the Amazon.
Inkaterra Reserva Amazónica, where the Inkaterra story began in 1975, offers adventurers a luxurious way to discover the beautiful Amazon of southern Peru. Listed as one of the world’s 25 best eco-lodges by National Geographic Traveler, the lodge has 35 cabanas inspired by the native Ese’Eja culture. With various a-la-carte local excursions within the 10,000ha private ecological reserve and its surroundings, the riverside hotel is a remarkable rainforest retreat. For those looking to relax, there is the newly remodelled Ene Spa, and for the thrill seekers, the 344m Inkaterra Canopy Walkway, comprised of two towers, eight platforms and seven bridges at 30m above ground led by expert guides. The more adventurous travellers visiting Inkaterra Reserva Amazónica may even choose to spend a night in the Inkaterra Canopy Tree House, sleeping 98ft above the ground surrounded by the nocturnal sounds of the Amazon.
