Belmond Sanctuary Lodge is special in so many ways - location, rooms, views, food. When all of the crowds leave at the end of the day, it is wonderful to be able to stay so close to Machu Picchu. A very special hotel.

About
Description
No picture of Machu Picchu can prepare you for seeing it with your own eyes. Perched high in the Andes, it is one of few places in the world that can be described as truly unmissable. It’s on everyone’s More travel wish list, attracting a million visitors each year. But there’s only one way to see it in style: by staying at Belmond Sanctuary Lodge. When we say we’re one of a kind, we mean it. Belmond Sanctuary Lodge is the only hotel that sits at the entrance of the ancient Inca citadel of Machu Picchu. For years we have been the unofficial gateway to the Inca world, inviting our guests to explore with unrivalled access and expert guidance. While most visitors to the citadel endure a winding bus ride from Aguas Calientes, our snug retreat is a few footsteps away. Wake before sunrise and be the first through the gates. The mountains look magnificent emerging from a thick cloak of mist, and Machu Picchu is stunning in solitude. Stop, breathe and soak it all in. Less

Aquacalientas ( sp?, the town you arrive st before going to Machu Picchu, has many restaurants. I’m sorry we didn’t get to explore there before ascending to Machu Picchu. I would try another spot.

The garden suites have a nice patio but no balconies. Most of the hotel is ground floor. There are several nice terraces where you can lounge. GREAT hotel!
