Culture & History
Located in the stunning Sacred Valley, Sol y Luna is a fantastic place to be based for a gateway to Machu Picchu, the beautiful bucket-list ancient Incan city. The immediate area is teeming with culture, and Sol y Luna offers unique experiences to help guests be fully immersed in the rich diversity of the area. See the daily Peruvian Paso Horse Show demonstration or watch the local women show off ancestral techniques on their looms as they create traditional Andean weaving. There is also a pottery workshop where guests can craft their own take-home piece of Peru and theatre presentations bringing to life the area’s heritage on the Wayra terrace.
Lakes & Mountains
The stunning landscape of Andean terraces, mountain pathways and snowcapped peaks offer ample opportunity for adventure. There is plenty to discover, whether you wish to mountain bike through the ancient ruins of Pisaq, following the Urubamba River to local farms and markets, or head to Ollantaytambo, which has been inhabited ever since Incan times. Alternatively, ride on the back of a native Paso horse across the rural village paths, or kayak across the calm waters of Huaypo Lake, to further be amazed at the natural beauty of the region.
Spa & Wellness
Small, intimate and serene, Yacu Wasi spa is wrapped in an artful stained glass setting. Meaning ‘house of water’ in the Quenchua language, treatments are inspired by native healing rituals and incorporate locally grown organic herbs. Along with three candle-lit treatment rooms, complemented by aromatherapy and essential oils, the herbal sauna and steam room offer sumptuous relaxation space, while complimentary yoga held outdoors in the morning sun will prepare you for a day of discovery.
Dining & Gourmet
Exploring the exceptional cuisine of the area is an adventure in itself. Join the chef for a visit to the farms and markets that provide the backbone of Peruvian cuisine. To learn more, take an interactive cooking class in the Wayra kitchen with the hotel’s experienced chefs, and discover how the food has been passed down in generations since the Inca Empire. In the evening, reserve a seat at the Chef’s Table for a three-course culinary adventure of flavour, or arrange a visit to the Wine Cellar to savour a bespoke menu of seasonal cuisine paired with Old and New World wines by the sommelier.
