Luxury Holidays At Sanctuary Lodge, A Belmond Hotel, Machu Picchu

Sanctuary Lodge, A Belmond Hotel, 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.
