About This Hotel
The only hotel near the famed Inca ruins, Belmond Sanctuary Lodge matches luxurious comfort with ancient splendor.
Built in the 1400s, the former Inca citadel of Machu Picchu is one of the world's great wonders - standing 2,400 meters (8,000 ft.) above sea level in the Peruvian Andes. You're still dumbstruck that you can see its cliffhanging ruins from the terrace of your suite, one of 29 rooms and two suites at Belmond Sanctuary Lodge.
Set amid gardens rife with orchids and other native plants, this boutique hotel tastefully plays up its proximity to the Lost City of the Incas. 12 of Belmond Sanctuary Lodge's rooms have mountain views, and all of them offer in-room dining. But don't miss dinner at stone-and-wood Tampu restaurant and bar, whose chefs are equally adept at Peruvian and international cuisine.
Also, no visit to this extraordinary place would be complete without a guided tour of the ancient city and its surrounding alpine jungle. When you return from a day of high-altitude exploring, bring your sore muscles back to life with a massage based on traditional Inca techniques.
