Agent Tips

  • Plan for more than an one overnight here. There is so much to do in Rio Sagrado including river rafting, hiking, cooking classes, market visits, horseback riding and more.
  • Local residents from a village nearby set up a market on the grass outside the hotel restaurant. Alongside the resident llamas, it makes for a very intimate shopping experience that feels authentic.
  • At certain times of the year the train to Machu Picchu stops right at the hotel. Yes, there is actually a train stop on property...this is very convenient but not offered all of the time, so check with your travel advisor regarding seasonality.
  • Have lunch at Wayra which includes a show of Peruvian Paso horses, all to the rhythm of live marinera music. Or, participate in a ceremony led by a Peruvian Shaman for a more spiritual experience.
Rooms, Suites + Villas

Relaxing and spiritual, a stay here lets you experience the majestic life in the mountains.

The rooms are scattered throughout the gardens, most with terraces that provide a view of the Urubamba River. Rooms are spacious and open, and the use of local fabrics and furnishings enhance the Peruvian feel. Bathrooms are large with heated floors which is very welcome on those chilly mornings. You will also find two villas, perfect for groups or family holidays.
Pool + Gym

Serenity, Inca-style.

Enjoy the outdoor infinity pool with majestic views to the surrounding nature and the river.

Soothing treatments using locally sourced products echo the serene spirit of the Urubamba River.

The spa offers creative and authentic treatments using native healing plants and flowers. Veiled by indigenous trees within a natural bouquet of wild flowers, Mayu Willka Spa is housed in a beautiful wood and stone complex. Select a massage or therapy from our unique menu, then settle in for a sublime start to your Peruvian adventure. They even have an Altitude Acclimatizer massage and a Maras Salt Exfoliation using the salt that is sourced nearby.

An authentic immersion into Andean fine dining.

El Huerto is romantic with its white tableclothes and candlelight. It offers both Peruvian dishes and also international cuisine with much of the produce coming from their own garden. And in nice weather, there is also outdoor dining.
  • Bar
    The bar has a cozy indoor space and also seating outside in the garden. They make a mean Pisco Sour, but the Chilcano is their real specialty. There is a great bar menu of tapas and other small dishes. After a long day of touring, it’s great to enjoy a nice, quiet and casual dinner.
  • Who's it for?
    The property is very accommodating to families with some residential style villas on one end. There's also several activities that would be family-friendly, like bottle feeding baby alpacas!
  • Location
    Set in the lush Sacred Valley of the Incas on the banks of the Urubamba River, the hotel is 4 km from the Mercado de Urubamba market.
