Luxury Holidays At Belmond Sanctuary Lodge

Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, Machu Picchu sits alone at the entrance to the world’s most famous Inca citadel. As the only hotel standing adjacent to the formidable Urubmamba mountain range and tumbling stone steps of Machu Picchu, the lodge’s location is unbeatable. The property has been sensitively incorporated into the hillside, offering guests demure, mellow rooms and flourishing gardens overlooking the verdant hollows of forested mountain slopes. Many rooms face Huyana Picchu – the impossibly steep peak and hauntingly beautiful icon of the Andes panorama. Wake early and enjoy breakfast on your terrace while watching the dawn break through a cloak of darkness. By day, explore the Incan ruins – arrive before the hoards and leave long after they depart and then watch silence fall over the region from your outdoor hot tub.

Culture & History

Belmond Sanctuary Lodge is the only hotel in Machu Picchu, perfectly located adjacent to the enchanting 15th century Inca citadel, which was abandoned at the time of the Spanish Conquest and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, voted one of the 'New Wonders of the World'. Wake up early and refreshed and beat the day's visitors to this mystifying ruin on a short walk or by bus, then immerse yourself in Peruvian culture with ancient ceremonies that ask Pachamama (or Mother Earth) for prosperity and health.


With breathless views and majestic ruins, Machu Picchu is a truly unique romantic destination. Whether it is a trip away with your partner, honeymoon or wedding, Belmond Sanctuary Lodge will create an unforgettable experience. A journey to Machu Picchu is ideal for those seeking a unique honeymoon experience, as you board the Belmond Hiram Bingham train in Cusco and voyage through the striking landscape of the Sacred Valley in ultimate luxury. Arrive at the hotel and unwind before treating yourself to a delicious dinner at Tampu Restaurant.
