Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge

This stylish retreat is the only hotel at the entrance to Machu Picchu, giving you privileged access to the site before the crowds arrive. At the end of the day unwind in an oasis of calm and reflect on your visit to this ancient citadel.

Staying here is all about the location, you are just a few steps away from the entrance to Machu Picchu and this has several advantages.

As well as being close to this unique site, the hotel itself is a haven of peace, tranquillity and calm. Find the perfect spot for reflection in the orchid garden or perhaps take to the relaxation area for a little meditation or yoga.

Start the day with a delicious buffet breakfast, and perhaps finish off with a drink in the bar before a well-earned sleep in your cosy room. Why not partake in a Pisco Sour tasting and learn about this national tipple?

Times to Go

Machu Picchu can be visited year-round although January-February can be very wet.
