Some hotels are simply a place to rest after a long day, a place to stop in transit to your final destination or an unremarkable sleeping spot that will be forgotten for months to come. combined with all other hotels. Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba is definitely a place to rest but really, that’s where the similarities end. It is just so much more than that. An immersive paradise oasis in the countryside, where colonial Hacienda style combines with contemporary luxury, it’s the perfect oasis and destination in its own right.
Located in the heart of Peru’s Sacred Valley, famous for its Inca sites and weaving villages, is Inkaterra’s Hacienda Urubamba Hotel, the youngest hotel in Inkaterra’s portfolio of luxury hotels in Peru. Set among acres of beautiful farmland and at the foot of snow-capped mountains, this is a hotel you’ll one day recall. You’ll be sitting in a rocking chair, with gray hair, a wry smile, and perhaps an ill-fitting cardigan. Your grandchildren will gather around you and you will share the story of your unbelievable trip to this beautiful colonial house!
Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba has some of the most luxurious hotels in South America and it’s also one of the best I’ve stayed at. With some of the best food I’ve tried in any hotel and the feeling of luxury really meets comfort.
Our stay here was unforgettable and one that any foodie will be very pleased with. During our stay, since we received our room keys, we have not left the premises and I have not had a single moment. FOMO for the entire duration of our trip! Why? You can request. Well, there’s so much to do, and so much great food to eat, that you’re completely spoiled, and there’s simply no reason to venture any further than your guests’ beautiful farmland. hotel.
And on top of that, there’s this undeniably special look. With floor-to-ceiling glass almost everywhere you look at the hotel, you won’t be able to help but fall in love with the breathtaking views. With its beckoning slopes, terracotta towns and verdant fields layered with starry skies – this is possibly one of the best you’ll see in Peru and right from this hotel lobby, I fell in love with the Sacred Valley of Peru.
Amid cool tile floors, colonial furniture and brightly colored blankets, are pretty Andean-inspired retablo chests, lamps and altars, inspired by items that would be filled with traditional Haciendas was once owned by the Spanish lords who conquered the land. From the moment we arrived, we made our own at home on these sofas.
Whether enjoying large cups of locally picked tea or sipping a sunset Pisco Sour cocktail, relax in this unbeatable pub, and this spot has become a spot we return to often often.
The view continues from your bedroom, where you can share views of trees, harvest fields, and beautiful mountains. It is a place of real health. I arrived exhausted and slightly shivering from the cold and found myself in the perfect space for mental and physical rest.
In addition to the beautiful view, the large king bed and warm colors provide comfort. Hypoallergenic pillows, indoor plants and hot water bottles provide a cozy feel.
The marble bathroom has a lot of natural light streaming down from the ceiling and that’s how I’d design a bathroom if I did it myself!
With a wonderfully powerful shower and beautiful organic pH balanced homemade toiletries, I quickly felt all my stress washed away and fell into a state of bliss that will continue for the duration of them. I stay.
Even the “Do Not Disturb” sign is designed with the mind behind it – instead of the usual tag hanging on a doorknob, Inkaterra offers a woven basket of calming lavender and rosemary.
The room itself is very spacious and one of many places for you to relax. Another company favorite is the bedroom’s adjoining terrace, which is another beautiful spot to soak in the surreal scenery.
Once you pull yourself out of the beautiful bedroom, your options are plentiful. Your stay includes a number of dazzling excursions including stargazing at sunset, a tour of the 10-acre organic farmland on-site, or a lesson where you can learn how to make drinks ancient name Chicha. Best of all, these are only for hotel guests so for each excursion it was just the two of us and our guide, Hiroshi. Hiroshi was extremely knowledgeable and really contributed to a wonderful stay in the Sacred Valley. He grew up in Cusco and had the answers to all of our questions about the history, culture and life in the area.
His insight brought to life the history of the Incan empire and their relationship with Cusco and the Sacred Valley. A tour with him is an absolute must to understand the culture and heritage of the area as well as to get a perspective on present day Peru.
My favorite tour is actually at the organic farm. Hiroshi introduced us to the farmers and we reveled in the colors of the 10-acre organic farm. Rich clay produces the finest vegetables used for all hotel meals. Fruits and vegetables are so good that they are used almost exclusively in hotels.
Of course, an important part of any hotel stay for me is the food and to this day the food at Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba is among the best I have enjoyed in any hotel. any. While we stayed there on the B&B facility, we ended up eating all of our meals on site. This is partly because we are a bit into the weather and would rather rest than have to take a taxi into town. But even more so, this is because the quality of the food was absolutely amazing and we couldn’t eat enough. From breakfasts fit for a queen, room-service lunches to fine-dining three-course dinners; We’ve got everything we could ask for
Have you ever finished a meal and immediately looked forward to the next one? Maybe it’s just me, but when it comes to food, at Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba we are treated like royalty.
Breakfast is a hearty meal – alongside a buffet of fresh Peruvian fruit, yoghurts, local cheeses, cereals, pastries and continental options, you can opt for an à la carte menu with both local and classic western breakfast dishes.
Every morning, I would start with a glass of fresh juice (think Amazonian berries and the best combination of orange and mango juices), before deciding what to order, while we put in our bread basket.
Every dish is excellent, from the classic Eggs Benedict to the quinoa with a hot Dulce de Leche caramel sauce; We loved them all. I wouldn’t choose tamales as the best breakfast option but once I tried these steamed savory dishes, I was completely hooked.
For lunch, we usually choose more Western options like spinach pappardelle or Roast Duck from the “Earth to table” menu, which focuses on locally grown ingredients.
Under the weather, I feel it’s only appropriate that I use room service to get comfortable in my pajamas! I loved the taste and presentation and was really pleased with the extensive options available.
And then the dinners… Oh the dinners! Hacienda Inkaterra Urubamba’s romantic candlelit dinner by the fireplace is both comforting and hearty! These are dinners that I will be smiling at for months to come!
From sandwiches rivaling Danish Michelin-starred restaurants to mouthwatering local delicacies, I was blown away by dinner at Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba Why? Could it be because of the skilled chefs or is the majority of the ingredients organic and grown on site? I doubt the combination of the two and I’m sure you’ll love it. The quinoa bread is up there with some of the best bread I’ve ever eaten – and for someone like me who can’t eat too much gluten – you’ll love that you can eat this to your heart’s content. Served with three types of butter, there’s something more classic as well as quirky. Classic salted butter combined with local herbs, second pesto butter and finally sweet, sour and savory passion fruit cream butter.
Some of our favorite dishes are the Andean Potato Soup and the Lomo Beef Tenderloin with Grilled Cusco Mushrooms and Pink Pepper Pie.
Andean potato soup is poured at the table over a bowl of crisps, parmesan cheese, toast and egg yolks. Given that Peru is home to over 4000 native potatoes, it’s no surprise that this soup is like never before and one of the most delicious and comforting dishes I’ve tried in a whole month. in Peru. It was thick and rich in truffle oil and so good that I ordered it every night.
Lomo Tenderloin is succulent and pink in color in a delicious pink pepper sauce, slightly infused like cornbread. Organic wild mushrooms complete this dish and I love the scent of thyme through this dish.
We love the daily free afternoon tea time where we enjoy fresh herbal tea, made with locally grown herbs, with a straw with warm crispy cheeses, lots of small biscuits and daily cakes when we lounged by the fireplace and basked in the scenery.
While not a full afternoon tea in the traditional British sense (no bread or scones) – the daily afternoon tea hour is a great way to break up the day and enjoy relaxing by the fireplace heating. The countless books on the coffee table have fueled our adventure with collections of the best luxury hotels in the world and the attention of different countries.
We spent hours lounging in this area, soaking up the sunlight from the floor-to-ceiling windows, drinking tea or Hacienda Inkaterra Urubamba’s famous Pisco Sours! But that’s what a relaxing respite is all about, isn’t it?
Set amidst the rolling hills of Peru’s Sacred Valley, Hotel Hacienda Inkaterra Urubamba is a place where it’s easy to forget your stress but it’s a place you won’t easily forget. It’s up there with the best luxury hotel and i can only see it is improving. There are plans to build a luxury spa on site, which is the only part I feel is missing. I just know that I will forever miss this breathtaking place, even if I am gray and old. It’s a place you can dream of and a place you can’t easily forget!
While I’m in no hurry, I’m still looking forward to sitting in that rocking chair and telling the story of traveling the world, checking out the best luxury hotels, and trying every food I can!
