The Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge is the only hotel located at the famous Inca citadel itself. With a location just outside of the entrance to the remarkable ruins, Sanctuary Lodge offers the rare opportunity to visit the site in the early morning and late afternoon, a chance not available to many visitors to the ancient city.

Property Details

Belmond Sanctuary Lodge offers only 29 rooms, 12 of which have views of the mountains, and two suites, providing an intimate yet casual environment from which to enjoy the splendor of Machu Picchu. Classic Standard Rooms either have a view of the inner courtyard or private patios, and the Mountain View Rooms look out over the amazing mountains and surrounding forest. Some Mountain View Rooms feature a terrace with outdoor seating where you can enjoy the beauty of the region. Suites also have charming indoor sitting areas with large doors that open out onto the outdoor terraces.

Imagine dining on fine Peruvian and international cuisine while enjoying views of the majestic forests and mountains surrounding the Machu Picchu sanctuary. This is exactly what you will experience dining at Sanctuary Lodge’s two fabulous restaurants. The Tampu Restaurant Bar serves à la carte cuisine amid natural materials and modern design, and the Tinkuy Buffet Restaurant offers a famous daily lunch buffet and is open to all visitors to Machu Picchu. El Mirador, the snack bar, is located just near the entrance to the citadel, and offers light fare for those visiting the ruins.

In addition to the Lost City itself, there are a number of attractions in the area, and Belmond Sanctuary Lodge is the perfect location for your base of exploration. Take some time to visit the hot springs of the nearby town of Aguas Calientes, or relax in the hotel’s gardens, which feature a large variety of native plants, including several species of the region’s orchids.
