Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado
A chic retreat on the Urubamba River
On the banks of the mighty Urubamba River, in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, this charming hotel is a tranquil retreat situated between Cuzco and Machu Picchu, and the perfect base from which to discover the magic of the valley.
Harmonising with the rural surroundings, its suites and villas are decorated in local Peruvian style with contemporary flair. While modern and manufactured touches are kept subtle and discreet, features such as the lush flower gardens and local textile decorations keep the hotel firmly grounded in the Urubamba Valley.
El Huerto restaurant takes its name from the onsite vegetable gardens, from where fruits, vegetables and spices are harvested and integrated into the restaurants range of Peruvian cuisine. The well-stocked bar has a very privileged location overlooking the river. There is also the option of having a delightful picnic lunch in the gardens.
Spa Mayu Wilca has a lot to offer in terms of relaxation, with a whole host of Andean-influenced treatments including massages, reflexology or facial treatments alongside facilities including a Jacuzzi and a steam sauna. But if you would rather be out and about you can explore the valley on horseback, by mountain bike or on the river itself.
Enjoy the beautiful and relaxed surroundings of Rio Sagrado as you explore the historic Sacred Valley.
