We have expanded our colonial house into a very modern INN & Spa. But left it's original landmarks, such as inka walls which are thousands of years old, combining historic and modern structure. Our INN is the place to be.

Your Hosts at Samana INN & Spa are Juan Manuel Leon and Louise Hodgson. We are a Peruvian/English family here in Cusco, we will help you to get around town giving you the best tips and good recommendations to make you fell like you are home away from home.

We are located at Tecsecocha 536, in down town only 2 blocks away from the main square of Cusco, 5 to 10 minutes walking distance to all the major landmarks of the city also really close to the best restaurants, shops, travel agencies, coffee shops, and more.

From our team at Samana Spa and Salon we are looking forward to your visit.

Four friends and I stayed at Samana before and after trekking the Inca Trail. We could not have asked for a better experience! We were greeted by Lourdes (Juanmanuel and his wife were out of the country) who took the greatest care for us: always ready with coca tea, suggestions on where to go/explore, or just to chat. She even... More

Decided to try this 'upscale' place on 28th December after the inca trail. Paid (for Peru) an expensive price for the 'jet lag relief package' which included two types of sauna, jacuzzi and massage. It was advertised as deep tissue or Swedish massage, but we weren't given an option. Massage was terrible -more like rubbing oil into our backs with... More

I guess I was expecting more given some of the raves here. It was just an OK massage. A bit hurried and certainly not the most intuitive massage therapist. She just kept doing her thing while ignoring the clues I was giving her as to which muscle groups needed attention. They are also hard to get on the phone. Even... More

Battered, sore and feeling ill after the 4 day Inca Trail we desperately needed some relief and Samana Spa provided it. A lovely, clean, well presented little place, it has everything you need. My girlfriend opted for a facial and I went for a sauna & steam room before joining each other in the same room for an hour long... More

Samana Spa is about a 6-7 minute walk from the main square. From the outside, it doesn't look like much and the sign is hard to see from walking down the street. Inside, it's a comfortable, clean, and pleasant atmosphere. I went to a couple places in Cusco, with a variety of prices and levels of experience. Samana was by... More

Fantastic experience! The spa is well run and their team is very friendly. One of the best deep tissue massages I have ever had. Make sure you make time when you are in Cusco to experience Samana.
