Check out the most luxurious retreats in Sacred Valley, Peru

With the demand for luxury travel booming, and the development of several luxury hotel resorts over the last few years, the Sacred Valley of the Inca’s is becoming an increasingly popular destination for foreign tourists visiting Peru. Ideally located for visiting nearby Inca archaeological sites of Pisac, Moray and Ollantaytambo, and just 2 hours from Peru’s premier attraction – the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, the Sacred Valley is also an intelligent choice to spend a few nights.

As the price of land in the City of Cusco continues to sharply rise (Sotheby’s is opening an office there at the moment), luxury hotel investors are choosing to constructing away from the city, opting for the more tranquil setting and lower land costs of the Sacred Valley. What this means is that there is now a selection of exclusive hotels that are less restricted in size, offering attractive gardens, all at more affordable prices. And, to boot, the Sacred Valley is located several hundred feet lower than Cusco, making the whole process of acclimatizing to the Andes that little easier.

The 5,500 square foot spa includes 12 treatment rooms, a hydrotherapy circuit, plunge pools and more. A popular treatment at the spa is the hydrating wrap and massage using maracuya (passion fruit) and honey.

Sol y Luna Hotel, Urubamba

As one of the original luxury hotels in the Sacred Valley, the Sol y Luna Hotel has had to constantly redefine itself to maintain its position as a leading luxury hotel in the area.
