In the formidable foothills of the Andes lies The Scared Valley, which once formed the heart of the Inca Empire. Built among the area’s picturesque villages and colonial towns, the Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba Hotel is set in a destination rich in history and charm.

Ollie and Kate B are here to help give you the inside track.

The rooms are decorated in warm colours and most have fireplaces, providing cosy retreats to return to after a day of exploring Inca citadels, archaeological sites or the local craft markets. All guest suites take advantage of the hotel's beautiful setting, as each room has panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Many of the rooms have private terraces and each has a spacious bathroom, perfect for a refreshing soak.

The dining room at Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba offers both local and international cuisines, using organic ingredients to create dishes which are tasty and nutritious. In the evening, flickering candles create a romantic atmosphere in which to enjoy the delicacies on offer. In warm weather guests can dine on the terrace, surrounded by the splendour of The Sacred Valley.

There are many activities available, with some of the excursions included with the stay at Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba. Led by knowledgeable guides, guests can gain invaluable insight into the surrounding area, whether visiting an ecological farm, trekking along the Challa Huasi Trail, or exploring Twilight Mountain. Thrill seekers will find plenty of adrenaline activities to enjoy too, as the valley lends itself to adventure sports, such as white water rafting and mountain climbing.
