We just had the trip of a lifetime at Machu Picchu and the Sanctuary Lodge. Staying next to the entrance allowed us to rest a little after lunch and spend the afternoon at the site. The light at 4:00 is great and it's incredible to get pictures at the end of the day without people. Got up early the next... More

This hotel is magnificent! It truly embodies luxury. Stay There! The staff makes you feel special, the decor is unbelievable. The artwork is outstanding. It even retains the chapel as part of the hotel. Again, Stay There!

We stayed at the Sanctuary Lodge the night before we visited Machu Picchu. From the moment we arrived we were treated as friends. We arrived at 3pm and and having not had anything to eat since 6am asked about food service. They arranged a table in the restaurant whilst our bags were taken to our room. After our lunch we...

If 15th-century Inca site Machu Picchu is on your bucket list, I highly recommend that you do it right and stay at this intimate place, which is the original site of the farm upon which Hiram Bingham stumbled when he "discovered" Machu Picchu. Belmond Sanctuary Lodge -- formerly known as The Orient Express Sanctuary Lodge -- is within a stone's-throw... More

The TripAdvisor reviews of the hotel are very accurate so I will only add a few notes. 1) Be sure to find the somewhat hidden hot tub with views of Huayna Picchu and a phone for handy pisco sour delivery (drinks are included with your stay). 2) Despite some confusion in the reviews, as a guest you do NOT have...

Our trip to Machu Picchu was made immeasurably more enjoyable by staying at the Sanctuary Lodge. The rooms were great, with a lovely terrace looking over the mountains, and set amidst beautiful gardens. The breakfast buffet was fantastic. The Andean music at dinner brought the whole experience together. And, being right outside the entrance to the ruins, we made it... More

The Sanctuary Lodge is an oasis of luxury in the midst of the amazing Incan ruins. They have a breakfast buffet that is unbelievable and during our dinner there native musicians came out to play traditional Andean songs, which was lovely. The front doors are less than 100 feet from the entrance to Machu Picchu, which makes it so easy... More

The subject for this review means that when you want to go and see the sunrise in Machu Picchu you just have to step out... More

Did not know what to expect, but we were blown away by how awesome the hotel/lodge was. Everything was included, even the mini-bar. We had a great time at the 1.5 hour Pisco tasting. Was so cool to wake up early in the morning and walk over to Machu Picchu ruins and walk around before the daily tourists. If you... More
