Sumaq Machu Picchu
Andean escape and fine dining
With a privileged location on the Urubamba River at the quiet end of town and only 20 minutes from the famous Machu Picchu archaeological site, this 5-star hotel offers comfort, elegance and relaxation, in Andean Design.
This hotel has a soothing ambience thanks to the double-pane windows that drink in the views of the river and mountains. Gold, mahogany and maroon are married together throughout, conjuring a sense of authentic regal class whilst the furnishings are robust and well upholstered. In keeping with the rest of the hotel the bedrooms combine dark woods with mostly claret fabric furnishings and providing some of the finest hotel views in Peru. The Qunuq Restaurant offers a gastronomic experience that will tantalize the most demanding of taste buds through a contemporary interpretation of traditional Andean cuisine. Enter a realm of blissful renewal at the Aqlla spa - the perfect spot for a mystical indulgence after a busy day exploring the ancient Inca ruins.
Hidden from the world until the American explorer Hiram Bingham stumbled across the ruins in 1911, the magnificent citadel of Machu Picchu is one of South America’s most famous sights. Well preserved and largely intact, as you walk between these imposing palaces, temples, houses and storerooms it is easy to imagine the city at the height of the Inca Empire. Sumaq Machu Picchu is just a few minutes on foot to Aguas Calientes town centre and train station and a short bus journey up the windy road to the ruins – a convenient base for your visit to this world renowned site.
Sumaq Machu Picchu is a stylish refuge and blends into the hillside giving the place a genuine feeling of being close to nature.
