Ranked #3 of 20 Pisac B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Our group of seven spent one night at Melissa Wasi at the beginning of a week long tour of the Sacred Valley. And that would be my only regret, that it was just one night! We were instantly made to feel at home, and the views from the property are just wonderful. Tired and hungry, we enjoyed a delicious dinner in the on site restaurant, followed by a good night's sleep. Breakfast was included and served in the restaurant the next morning. The pancakes put smiles on our faces. This place is popular with retreat groups. The grounds are large and beautifully kept, the owner very kind, and the staff lovely.

Room Tip: Our group stayed in the main house and the adjoining house. There are also cabins.

My friends and I always stay here when we are visiting the area of Pisac.

The owner, Chito, is such a warm and amazing person. Very courteous and very service oriented.

I watched him enjoying pasta and some vino with some of his guests, while I was heading out to eat in town.

There is also an incredible restaurant right across the street from the property owned by Chito as well. It makes for an amazing breakfast, lunch or dinner!

It is a great place to chill for a few days, a week, or as you are heading on your way to Machu Picchu!

They even have Llamas on the property that will sometimes find there way just outside your window.

Internet is good!

Zimba and Nala will make it enjoyable as well! You have to stay there to know who I am talking about!

An amazing place with super friendly staff and great rooms. To get into the town of Pisaq it's a 3 soles taxi ride or a lovely walk along the river, maybe 15 minutes.
They also have a beautiful garden and at night when it's a bit cold they always have a fire in the house.

Melissa Wasi is excellent as a base for visiting the Pisac area: the atmosphere is relaxed and homely; the owners are very friendly and helpful; and their on site restaurant (Trattoria Escondida) provides absolutely delicious meals.

As with other places I visited in Peru, I wished I had sought their local travel advice at the time of booking.

I teach spiritual retreats and there is no better place than Melissa Was I in Pisaq. We loved the people, the rooms, the food at the Trattoria and the Blue Llama Cafe in town. All of our requests were accommodated and we had a great retreat.

Joyce and Chito, the owners are lovely and very helpful. Someone from our group needed medical help (don't drink Chicha in the street!) and Joyce spend a whole day taking care of him. Thank you Joyce.

We stayed here in October 2012 for one night with a friend. We were welcomed very graciously and visited with the host in a comfortable living room with a fire in the hearth. We were also able to eat our little repast here that we had brought. The rooms are in separate cabanas in a nice garden. Basic, clean, no heat, secure. The beds are lumpy, but did not keep us from sleeping soundly, because it is so quiet. Trees, lots of greenery and flowers, and an Italian restaurant on site with an American chef. Restaurant is closed Mon and Tues. Delicious home-made granola with quinoa for breakfast, and cooked eggs. The son of the host performs rituals using hallucinogenic roots--his father tells us people come from all over the world for these sessions. The hotel is hard to find because it is set apart from the main village, but all the taxis know where it is, and they are cheap and plentiful. The host also runs the Blue Llama restaurant in the center of Pisaq; food is very good there and they also have fruit smoothies and an ATM.

Room Tip: You can opt for a room in the family's house, B&B style, or in the separate cabanas. Cabanas...
