Set in the middle of tropical vegetation, The Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo is a mini village of luxurious whitewashed and terracotta casitas nestling into terraced hills.
Thick alpaca blankets and open fireplaces create a feel of laid-back luxury, Andean style. The glass-walled restaurant, serving contemporary Andean cuisine, offers glorious views of the rapid-flowing Urubamba River and the Andes Mountains, while colourful Peruvian crafts and authentic pre-Columbian artifacts decorate the rooms of this 100% carbon-neutral hotel. The Una spa uses natural essences, and the relaxing eucalyptus and bamboo sauna calls after a day spent at the famous Inca site. Minutes away from the train station, this hotel may not be directly at the ruins themselves but its 12 acre gardens more than compensate for that.
Due to the hotel's delightful orchid gardens and relaxed atmosphere, many people often wish they had stayed longer than the one or two nights around their visit to Machu Picchu.
