Slowly but surely, winter is arriving, and as the temperature starts to drop, we start to get itchy feet again and start thinking about picking up and leaving for warmer pastures. And because we love ancient history, today we bring you the most luxurious way to see the legendary ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru.


The only hotel near the famed Inca ruins, Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge matches luxurious comfort with ancient splendor.

 

 

Machu Picchu

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. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983, the site was also voted one of the new Seven Wonders of the World in 2007. Much speculation has been offered as to how the Inca people managed to move the enormous and perfectly cut blocks into place. It is known that the Incas were aware of the principle of the wheel, but never put it to any practical use other that for children’s toys.

 

 

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 Machu Picchu 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.

Keep your eye out for the local holy man in the garden. Listening in as he prepares his offering to Mother Earth makes for a fascinating experience. The breathtaking ruins can be seen from the terrace of your suite, one of 29 rooms and two suites at Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge.

 

Explore and relax

 

No visit to this extraordinary piece of history 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.
