Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, Machu Picchu

Call 01242 547 701 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Why we like it

  • 12 of the 29 rooms and suites have mountain views, some from private terraces
  • The Belmond Sanctuary Lodge enjoys an exclusive location, nestled adjacent to the awe-inspiring Machu Picchu Inca citadel
  • The intimate Tampu Restaurant serves international cuisine and Andean specialities using fresh, local ingredients
  • Spa services include Inca or aromatherapy massages and complimentary yoga sessions
  • Other facilities include bars and terraces, beautiful gardens and, of course, an array of tours and excursions to Machu Picchu (as well as some of the area's lesser known sights)
  • We recommend the lodge's two suites, for their prime views from large terraces.

A&K Top Tip

Take breakfast in the lodge's magnificent gardens. You will be astonished as the morning mists slowly rise to reveal the celebrated mountains of the Machu Picchu Valley beyond.

Guest Testimonial

We would like to express our particular thanks to Miguel A. Alvan Flores who made the first part of our holiday so very special by his kindness, enthusiasm and good company. He brought the rich pre Inca history and heritage of his country to life for us

- VB & PB, Lincolnshire



This Belmond hotel stands amidst a place rich in ancient heritage, renowned spirituality and incredible natural beauty. It is the ideal base from which to explore the archaeological wonders, spot rare species of birds and flowers (especially orchids of which there are an estimated 300 species in the area) or unwind and enjoy breath-taking scenery from the lodge's garden.

An intimate hotel, it has fewer than 30 rooms and only two suites, so we recommend requesting this hotel well in advance. All are simply, yet stylishly furnished, with large comfortable beds dressed with warm duvets.

Pleasant as they are, however, the rooms (and everything else) play second fiddle to the location. No other hotel stands as close to the Inca citadel or offers such jaw-dropping views.
