Absolutely perfect location for visiting Machu Picchu. Perhaps given the hotel's monopoly - it is the only hotel on site or within 30 minutes of Machu Picchu - the prices for the room and food are excessive. But the service is great, the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, the food outstanding, and again you can't beat the location. The jacuzzi is only open for a few hours a day so we weren't able to use it. Overall, we had a great stay and the location unquestionably enhanced our ability to maximize our visit to the site.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 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. ... more less
