Situated in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, in its own grounds, Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba makes a great place to relax after viewing archeological sites.

Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba is a contemporary hacienda-style 5 star hotel in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, between Cusco and Machu Picchu. It’s sits in the countryside in spacious grounds of around 100 acres, just above the valley. Above the hacienda are imposing green mountains.

Accommodation is either in the main building, Casa Hacienda, or in the surrounding Casitas.  The draw here is the wide open space, offering views over the valley in serenity and relaxing solitude. Architecture and interiors are inspired by the area’s cultural history, with colonial furniture, authentic Inca masks and handcrafted woodwork adding to the hacienda’s charm.

Who for

Singles, couples and families who want luxurious peace and quiet in the Sacred Valley


There are just 36 rooms, including 12 in the main building and 24 standalone Casitas or villas scattered around the grounds. We stayed in a spacious Casita, with a panoramic view of the fields and mountains from its own terrace.  A comfortable King size bed with 100% pima cotton sheets, down duvet, hypoallergenic pillows and handmade wool coverlets ensured a good night’s sleep.

In the room is a colonial style wardrobe, a dining area for two and a stone fireplace. The large marble bathroom contained two sinks, separate shower and toilet, plus Inkaterra’s handmade toiletries, plush towels and a twin closet. Complimentary bottled water, gowns, slippers are all standard and there’s TV and iPod docking station. Even better, the evening turndown service supplied hot water bottles to keep us warm and cosy.

Food and Drink

The restaurant, bar and terraces offer a gorgeous view of the Sacred Valley and the imposing mountains that surround it. The menu specialises in local ingredients harvested from the property’s organic farm. These include red and black quinoa, Urubamba corn, purple corn and a wide variety of potatoes.


he bar serves a comprehensive selection of macerated Piscos and a wide range of wines. There’s also complimentary afternoon tea with homemade cakes and a range of hot beverages. It’s a welcoming place, perfect for relaxation.


Inspired by traditional Andean architecture, the Mayu Spa is situated between the property’s organic orchard and a forest of pepper trees. With treatments based on 100% natural products derived from native medicinal herbs, the new wellness centre has a plunge pool area, four private therapy rooms and a sauna. Clients can harvest their own medicinal herbs from the adjacent Healing Garden for their treatments.

 What’s nearby?
