Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba is a stylish and contemporary lodge fashioned after a Spanish-era hacienda. It’s the newest addition to Inkaterra’s already impressive portfolio of eco-friendly Peruvian properties. Set high in the Peruvian Andes, the lodge is perched on a mountainside overlooking the verdant floor of the Sacred Valley, a vast area home to an abundance of Inca ruins, traditional villages and rugged mountain landscapes. Windows here are especially large and wide so as to enable guests to make the most of the spectacular views of the surrounding area.

There are a total of 36 rooms, all with plenty of space and creature comforts. Of the accommodation options, 12 are rooms and suites, while the remaining 24 are ‘casitas’, detached mini-houses that afford guests an extra level of peace and privacy. All types of accommodation come with a private terrace and are decorated with a selection of custom-made furniture and locally produced textiles. Exposed wooden ceiling beams, fireplaces and hand-woven blankets give the rooms a rustic and authentic feel. Rooms and communal spaces are themed in tribute to the local culture and heritage; all sorts of fittings and furnishings such as conquistador armour, handcrafted pieces of woodwork, Inca masks and fabrics that were made over 1,000 years ago are dotted around the property.

The lodge’s vast grounds cover some 100 acres, filled with all sorts of plants and vegetation. Guests are encouraged to pick their own produce at the lodge’s organic farm which chefs will then happily prepare for the evening meals. These vegetables, herbs, potatoes and other foods are grown in a very traditional way, with farmers using oxen and hand tools, eschewing more modern methods of cultivation. Buffet breakfast is served daily, with lunch and dinner featuring a selection of more localised dishes inspired by the area’s rich culinary traditions and history.

The many activities on offer comprise group visits to an ecological farm, hiking along one of the valley’s many trails, and birdwatching expeditions. A number of alternative excursions are also available for an extra fee. Of course, guests are free to explore the area’s wealth of attractions in their own time as well.

While the lodge does welcome children, it doesn’t provide any amenities or services specifically for youngsters. To this end, the property might be best suited to families with older children with a love of nature and who are keen and able to participate in hikes and excursions.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
