Overview

Sol Y Luna is an upmarket, characterful hotel located near Urubamba in a prime spot for exploring the historic sights and natural wonders of Peru’s Sacred Valley. It’s a delightful home-from-home set within a lush oasis of gardens teeming with all sorts of native flora and fauna; thanks to its mountain setting, guests can enjoy captivating views of the towering Andes Mountains and the rich valleys below. This unique hotel belongs to Relais & Châteaux, an international chain of individually operated luxury restaurants and hotels offering high-end facilities and the finest of dining experiences.

There are three grades of accommodation; Superior, Deluxe and Premium. All three of these are designed to complement the hotel’s stunning natural surroundings, while at the same time offering plenty of space and a high level of comfort for guests. There are 43 ‘casitas’ - these are boutique-style houses fashioned from local stone offering views of both the hotel’s well tended gardens and the captivating Andes Mountains. Each 'casita' has a private terrace with a generous amount of space, complimentary toiletries, high-quality bedding and bathrobes. Local artworks feature prominently in the 'casitas' and throughout the hotel, lending the property an authentic feel.

The spectacular Sacred Valley is an area of stunning natural beauty, with rugged mountain landscapes and deep valleys. Scattered throughout are a series of well preserved Inca ruins, including the world famous Machu Picchu. There’s also a smattering of settlements, whose residents practise all manner of local traditions and customs. Guests at Sol Y Luna can choose from a broad menu of adventurous activities including kayaking, mountain biking, horseback riding and tandem flights. Horse shows and pottery workshops are also available. On site there’s a swimming pool and a full-service spa offering an array of indulgent treatments, along with a fully equipped gym. Killa Was and Wayra are the two main dining venues, each offering dishes inspired by the area’s rich culinary history, with all ingredients locally grown.

Sol Y Luna welcomes children, though there aren’t any facilities or services tailored specifically to youngsters. Some of the 'casitas' are more suitable for families travelling with younger ones than others so do check when you enquire.

Since 2009, the hotel’s income has helped support the Sol Y Luna Intercultural School, attended by some 200 local Sacred Valley children. The owners of the hotel established this school to provide children living in the area with access to good quality education.

  • Hi - now back.
    In short it was a great holiday with very very little to fault. Location on Lopud was perfect for family and accommodation was exactly as you said ‘simple’ clean and comfortable hosted by a wonderful friendly local family ...all 1min walk from the front. Great breakfast that was straight from the garden in part and always abundant.
    Our guide Nina was excellent always putting our safety first and adapting the itinerary to suit weather. She was a great host with the two families in our group and went out her way to keep us informed and even take photos to share when we were out on the water.
    Transport arrangements were spot on - always there waiting at airport or ferry! Slight confusion that it wasn’t a TourDust sign but that was quickly solved.
    Kayaking was a great adventure and a challenge some days but worth it for the stops on other islands and opportunities to swim, dive and explore caves. I suspect it could be a long day if your child is too young or not such a ‘water baby’ as once your in the kayak your in it! It is also a hefty bit of exercise on a two person kayak if the child in front isn’t up for paddling! I was fine except on one or two occasions where it was a bit of a struggle and I had to persuade him to do some more paddling for me.
    Finally, your service has been great since we got in touch especially as it was a last minute decision for us to go. The speed in responding to queries on a personal basis and quickly was really great (very unusual these days!)
    All in all a great holiday - my 11 year old had a great adventure he will talk about for years! So will I....

  • We had a fabulous holiday thank you! Everything went very smoothly - accommodation was good, breakfast fantastic! The kayaking was great - really well thought out schedule with plenty of rests and time to relax. Lovely meals out.

    Just wanted to add that our guide Nina was excellent. She worked really hard to ensure the whole trip went smoothly and that we were all happy with the pace, including giving the boys plenty of opportunities for jumping in off the cliffs!!

    All in all a great trip! And all the admin side of things has been very efficient throughout.

    Thank you so much!!

  • Hi, just back home now as stayed in London last night. It was fab! We loved it! Amazing all round- Thankyou. Best holiday ever!!!

    Accommodation great at both places, guides lovely, staff great. We saw more animals than ever expected: giraffes, lion, elephants, water hog, wilder beast, impala, white rhino, crocodiles, hippos in lake Sybia, monkeys in trees at Tonga.

    Beach beautiful, but a bit windy, waves v rough but didn’t deter my boys. We snorkeled which was fab but too rough on day we booked to do ocean experience.

    My boys swam in all pools!!!

    Weather better than we expected!

    Must go and do some laundry, but hope that helps?

    Best Nicola
