Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel
Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel occupies a private 12-acre cloud forest reserve on the outskirts of the town of Aguas Calientes in the valley immediately below Machu Picchu. The rooms are built out of stone, adobe, stucco and eucalyptus beams, and stone pathways lead through lush cloud forest to the rooms in one- or two-storey whitewashed cottages. There is also a luxurious villa with two adjoining guest suites, terrace and plunge pool.
Some rooms overlook the gardens, whilst others face the Urubamba River. All rooms have a large bathroom, sitting area, electric heater and extra-long beds with fine cotton sheets, alpaca blankets and handmade coverlets. Rooms also include aromatherapy products and Andean slippers.
There are two restaurants, a lounge bar and the Unu Spa which offers body massages, foot aromatherapy and an Andean sauna. The bar, boutique and reception all display authentic Andean artefacts and fabrics.
Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel offers an extensive educational and recreational programme with many guided activities on offer designed to meet a variety of interests and preferences. The hotel grounds contain more than three miles of ecological paths where guests can enjoy the native environment.

The Orchid Trail walk and birdwatching can also be arranged on a private basis.
