Overview

The Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel is an upmarket yet characterful property set in a 12 acre private woodland reserve in the Peruvian Andes, close to UNESCO World Heritage site Machu Picchu. Located just a few minutes from the bustling backpacker town of Aguas Calientes, this lovely, rustic retreat sits on a tranquil hillside overlooking the Vilcanota River. With 83 chic and spacious guest rooms and suites, a spa, swimming pool, and sauna, all surrounded by beautiful gardens and waterfalls, the hotel is highly comfortable and ideally placed for visits to Machu Picchu.

Guest areas include an outdoor swimming pool, spa, and traditional Andean sauna, plus a bar, gift shop, and small library. With super views of the Vilcanota River and surrounding peaks, the restaurant serves buffet breakfasts, and a la carte lunches and dinners, featuring contemporary, Peruvian-influenced cuisine. Guests can also dine at the more informal Café Inkaterra, a spacious thatched venue with similarly impressive views, open for lunch and dinner. Evening meal reservations are required. Tasting menus and wine tasting sessions are available, subject to arrangement. Wi-Fi is available in guest areas.

Nature walks are on offer around the estate with enthusiastic, informed guides. The area is home to over 200 bird species, including the exotic quetzal, and over 370 species of orchid grow in the region. The reservation also operates a conservation project to protect the endangered Andean Spectacled bear.

The property is close to the railway station, and either a two-hour trek or 30-minute bus ride away from the sprawling and remarkably well-preserved archaeological remains of Machu Picchu. Perched dramatically on a mountainside, 2450m above sea level, this stunning ancient Incan citadel lay undiscovered until 1911, having escaped the attention of the Spanish conquistadores in the 1600s. Opinion remains divided over Machu Picchu’s origins, with experts claiming the immaculately constructed stonework and distinctive terraces functioned as a former religious site, a city and political centre, or a royal retreat.

The accommodation comprises 83 rooms and suites laid out within the attractive grounds. Units vary in size, from superior rooms to expansive suites. All have king or twin beds, an ensuite bathroom, dining area, heating, minibar, and enjoy verdant garden views. Some suites come equipped with separate lounge and dining areas, and open fires, whilst the larger units have private outdoor terraces, some with Jacuzzis and alfresco showers. Most impressive of all is the ‘villa’ which offers extensive living space, a private garden, and a 24-hour butler service.

Children of all ages are welcome. Rooms and suites can accommodate up to three adults or two adults and two children, and one extra bed can be supplied per room, upon request. Guests under 12 years of age stay free of charge when sharing with parents. The hotel operates a Kids Club including child explorer kits especially for little ones, and activities such as treasure hunts in the grounds. A babysitting service can also be arranged. Parents are reminded to ensure that their children remain under adult supervision at all times.

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol

  • Hi Lisa
    It was a fantastic experience, thanks very much. All the arrangements were seamless and our guiding/support team were excellent, if there is a way for you to formally commend the team to your ground operators then I would be grateful if you could do that, they really were brilliant.
    Many thanks for your help in arranging the trip, and for your patience during the multiple re-arrangements over the past couple of years.
    Kind regards, John

  • Can't praise tour dust enough, they helped us to create a holiday of a lifetime that has given us family memories we will treasure forever. From start to finish the whole experience was exactly what we wanted and more. Due to covid we waited 2 and a half years for this trip but worth the wait.
