Inkaterra Machu Picchu

Built in the style of a traditional Andean village, Inkaterra Machu Picchu occupies a riverside location within a 12-acre private reserve of tropical cloud forest. The 85 whitewashed casitas and villas are scattered throughout the terraced hillside and although rustic in style are extremely comfortable.

Furnished using colourful Peruvian blankets and local art, all have an open fireplace and views of the orchid gardens or Vilcanota River. Facilities include a small pool and spa, restaurant, bar, as well as lounge areas with sofas which overlook the gardens and river.


Inkaterra Machu Picchu Hotel is located a short distance from the village of Aguas Calientes and 20 minutes by road from the famous Inca ruins.
