Belmond Rio Sagrado

Perched on the banks of the rushing Urubamba River and encompassed by lush gardens, Belmond Rio Sagrado is a tranquil Andean hideaway that sits in harmony with the surrounding Sacred valley landscape. Fine Peruvian-fusion cuisine is served in El Huerto, but guests can also experience a feast cooked using the ancient Pachamama hot stone method that dates back to the Inca empire.

Constructed from wood and natural stone, each its 21 serene rooms flaunt splashes of vibrant colour and possess sweeping views of across the Sacred Valley. Meanwhile, the two opulent villas rise from a garden of wild flowers and provide extensive interior and exterior living spaces. The immersive Mayu Willka Spa is housed behind floor-to-ceiling glass walls and boasts a tranquil jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and dazzling outdoor swimming pool.

Why we like Belmond Rio Sagrado

Guests are invited to partake in a sacred offering ceremony that is designed to reinforce the human connection with nature. An Andean Shaman will teach you how to offer thanks to Mother Earth for the life that she gives in this mystic ceremony in the gardens where resident baby alpacas freely roam.


Saddle up for a horseback ride over one of the three trails designed for two, journey to one of the nearby communities or have your horse lead you to one of the Inca ruins. Exhilarating river rafting experiences and quad bike expeditions on the Inca trail can also be arranged.

Within the seclusion of the property and its extensive grounds, partake in a revitalising yoga session on the riverbank, float in the glittering outdoor pool or indulge in an enchanting and authentic Andean spa ritual.
