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.

  • Thank you, Lisa! Our trip was wonderful even with the weather disruption. We loved seeing so many different parts of the country, meeting people and experiencing the culture. The desert was surely a highlight for our boys and the creativity and artisanship of everything from food to crafts were a highlight for me. A special shout out to our guide and driver, they became a special part of our trip and we will forever be grateful for meeting them and learning from them. I cannot believe we had to wait three years for this adventure but it was certainly worth the wait! Thanks for all your help building the itinerary, modifying it and troubleshooting during our stay.

  • Hi Lisa and everyone at Tourdust,
    We've had a wonderful time on our holiday and wanted to pass our appreciation to you. Everything has been expertly planned and executed, allowing us to enjoy the holiday to its fullest. Special appreciation to Muhammed, Ibrahim, and Omar, our Atlas guide, cook, and muleteer, who couldn't have done more for us and were just generally wonderful and hardworking. Riad Hanane is a perfect base in Marrakech to complement the trekking as it's ina less touristy area of the medina, which we appreciated. The staff and accomodation was superb.Thank you again for a trip to remember!
    Bob, May, Grace, and Lucas

  • 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
