Burrowed in the Sacred Valley of the Incas close to the village of Yucay, Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba is a colonial-style property set at the base of striking green mountains within 100 acres of private land. The Mayu Spa, complete with a healing garden, plunge pool, and dry sauna, offers a series of physically and spiritually soothing experiences from a privileged spot in between an organic orchard and an enchanting peppertree forest amidst the evergreen mountains of the Sacred Valley.
In keeping with the dense cultural history of the region, its 36 rooms and stand-alone casitas are appointed with colonial furnishings, alpaca-wool blankets and authentic Inca masks, while some even include crackling fire living rooms, panoramic balconies, personal butler service and private dining. Boasting an Earth to Table dining concept, guests are encouraged to pick their own produce from the property’s 10-acre organic plantation, including quinoa, Urubamba giant corn, medicinal herbs and a variety of potatoes. Guests are also invited to partake in a number of included excursions, from hiking to farm visits.
