Inkaterra Machu Picchu, in the heart of the Machu Picchu Historical Reserve, occupies a private five-hectare (12.3-acre) mountainside refuge in the lush Andean Cloud Forest. This tranquil hotel in the Vilcanota Valley, below the Machu Picchu Mountain and next to the railroad station, has the look and feel of a rustic Andean village, built from local stone, adobe, stucco, and eucalyptus beams, respecting traditional construction techniques of the region.

The hotel’s 85 Casitas (rooms) in 6 levels of service either overlook the orchid gardens or face the swift Vilcanota River. The grounds offer abundant opportunities for strolling, along more than 5 km (3.12 miles) of ecological paths and past several observation and contemplation spots for viewing flora (372 native orchid species), birds (180 species), and butterflies (111 species.)

The hotel’s UNU Spa features a typical Andean Sauna -an igloo made from indigenous bamboo and fresh eucalyptus leaves. Spa treatments range from traditional massage to Thai massage to foot massage, and include such elements as aromatherapy, reflexology, acupressure and stretching.

According to our eco-philosophy, we use non-treated water for our services; all of it is directly obtained from nature, sometimes mingled with minerals naturally gathered from the soil. Bottled drinking water is provided in every room.

Adhering to our goal of providing “authentic nature travel,” the hotel has limited some services found in traditional hotels. We do not offer television, radio, air conditioning, mini bars.


we provide you with an authentic Andean experience, surrounded by the beauty of nature that allows you to fully experience and re-live the Royal Inca Retreat of Machu Picchu that has obtained us many awards for service and conservation.
