Belmond Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge

The Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge is an excellent option to stay at on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Peru, and you’ll be enjoying the same lofty setting, the same astounding views as the ancient Incas who built the citadel almost six hundred years ago. The Sanctuary Lodge is the only hotel actually adjacent to Machu Picchu so, as a ‘local resident’, you can visit the ruins in the evening and early morning – when there are far fewer visitors. Imagine the sunset and sunrises you’ll be able to experience in peace. And the photographs you’ll take home!

The Lodge itself is pretty spectacular too. The gardens give you fabulous citadel views, and the rooms and suites are sublimely comfortable after an absorbing day exploring the Lost City of the Incas.

  • It was a complicated and very individual trip, and several changes were made by me during the planning. None of this seemed to worry Ayesha and everything went according to plan.
