Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness
Ranked #5 of 29 Hotels in Urubamba
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 28, 2014

This Hotel is located at the end of a dirt road and a very pleasant surprise! When you get to the gate ( yes, there is a gate ) a man opens a small door and comes out to see who is there, talks to the driver, then opens the gate. Reminded me of the entrance to " The Emerald City" in Wizard of Oz. Inside was an impressive fountain and circular driveway. Smiling porters waiting to carry your luggage to the beautiful lobby. Our room was very upscale and we had a private balcony overlooking wooded acreage. We sat out there with a bottle of wine and had a very relaxing first night. Prices for the mini bar, room service, bar and dining room were very reasonable, which isn't always the case. The breakfast buffet was a nice surprise. More like what you get in a nice hotel. Hovering waiters filling up your coffee cup ( best I had in Peru ) and omelettes or eggs to order. The hotel is around a central courtyard with shops, the original chapel from the Hacienda it was built around, and there were llamas, peacocks, and parrots in residence. Very Nice!! Best hotel we stayed at in our 2 weeks in Peru.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor with balcony.

It was a heavenly experience. From the drive through the countryside from Cusco to the opening of the gates into the Aranwa. The staff could not have been more attentive. We were taken through the beautiful grounds to our room which was amazing with an equally amazing view. The grounds were so lovingly cared for with every kind of flower imaginable, and the peacocks, alpacas, and parrots were very entertaining. Food was excellent, I especially looked forward to the breakfast buffet every morning. Did not have time for a movie/popcorn in the cinema, the library, nor the spa but hope to return someday and not have so many of my days planned. The perfect place to get away and relax!

I agree with Sharon, the only negative was having to leave!

Excellent place to stay. Our whole time their we were made to feel welcome. The staff were so friendly , we were made to feel like family. We recommend the "Unno" spa treatment it is absolutely heavenly. A special mention to Laura, for helping us negotiate our spa experience; the masseuses who were outstanding; Walter and Freddy at the bar; and last the breakfast staff who went out of their way to sing happy birthday to my sister and present her with birthday cake at 5:30 am before our departure. Thank you so much. Loved every moment. Magical!

We were fortunate enough to stay here during our honeymoon last September. Imagine Latin America chose the hotel for us and they did a fine job. It was just amazing. We had been out on a guided tour with another couple during the day and when he was due to drop us off at our hotel the guide just could not stop effusing about it. When we got through the big gates, I could see why! We had the most fantastic room (I think we'd been upgraded) which had been duly decorated to acknowledge our honeymoon. The bathroom had a huge spa bath and wet room-style shower and there were his 'n' hers basins. The gardens, the pool, the fish pond, the church, the library, the cinema . . . it was all fabulous.

We didn't have time to enjoy any of the spa treatments but the restaurant and bar were great. Food was excellent and the staff were friendly and attentive. The breakfast - choice and quality - was exceptional and the staff remembered your name after the first morning. Being there made you feel special.

It was such a treat to stay there and the only negative was having to leave.

This tranquil gem is a welcome relief from the farming villages in the Sacred Valley. Totally world-class with beautiful surroundings, alpacas roaming the grounds, various interesting and previously unknown spa offerings make this a one-of-a-kind resort. When we visited, it was quiet and there were very few guests. We felt the food for breakfast was quite varied and tasty. The service from Gualberto in the breakfast area was excellent and he always remembered our names and had a big smile to greet us. I did not have a chance to try the restaurant for other meals. The rooms are spacious and up-to-date facing a mini-park with animals and forest. There was a slight problem with mold in the bathroom that should be easy to remedy. There is a chapel on the property which is interesting as well. The "orchid" display, unfortunately, didn't have any flowers, but this might be seasonal.
