The Sacred Valley of the Incas is home of some of the finest Inca sites, offering a great start for your visit to Cusco, Peru. The Valley’s good weather and beautiful scenery, picturesque villages, folk arts and crafts and friendly local people, reflect the authenticity of Peru that travellers come searching for.
The valley is also a paradise for eco-friendly adventure sports such as trekking, horseback riding, mountain biking and rafting.
Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba is located in the Town Center of Huayoccari, Huayllabamba district, province of Urubamba. It is located at km 63 of the Cusco-Urubamba-Pisac-Calca Highway.
An Earth to Table concept is operated with a 10-acre organic plantation where guests are welcome to pick their own produce. Carbon-free crops such as quinoa, Urubamba giant corn, medicinal herbs and a variety of potatoes are farmed with traditional hand tools and oxen, as done centuries ago.
Inkaterra chefs created a menu emphasizing local ingredients harvested from the property’s organic farm: red and black quinoa, Urubamba corn, purple corn and a great variety of potatoes. The restaurant and adjacent terraces offer a gorgeous view of the Sacred Valley and the imposing mountains that surround it.
The most recent addition to Inkaterra’s Spa Collection is Mayu Spa (“River” in Quechua). With a rustic chic design inspired by traditional Andean architecture, Mayu Spa features relaxing views of the surroundings as it is found on a foothill in-between Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba’s organic orchard and an enchanting peppertree forest.
With treatments based in 100% natural products derived from native medicinal herbs, the new wellness center has a plunge pool, four private therapy rooms and a dry sauna – a spiritual and soothing experience amid the Sacred Valley’s evergreen mountains and harvest fields.
All rooms in the Casa Hacienda and stand-alone luxury casitas feature breathtaking views of the valley, immersing guests in open space, serenity and relaxing solitude.
Architecture and interiors are inspired on the area’s cultural history, with colonial furniture, authentic Inca masks and handcrafted woodwork that add to the hacienda’s local charm.
