Tambo del Inka, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa

An idyllic doorway to Peru’s Sacred Valley

Nestled in the beautiful Sacred Valley, along Peru’s Urubamba River, lies Tambo del Inka, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, an elegant stop along the Incan Path, the threshold to the ascent toward the royal city of Machu Picchu. In fact, the hotel offers a one-of-a-kind amenity for those who want to traverse the trail in high style: a private railway station where you can catch a ride to Machu Picchu.

The hotel’s design and surrounding scenery make it impossible to forget this special place. You’ll find Inca influence in the wood-filled pavilions, from the dramatic soaring stone fireplace in the lobby to the colorful prints that decorate the walls of the guest rooms. And large windows allow the natural beauty outside to shine. Every vista astounds with views of soaring mountains, the rushing river and rolling green hills.

Tambo del Inka forges a deep connection with the land itself with touches like the nearly 22,000-square-foot on-site garden that provides the ingredients for the Novo Andean restaurant and expert guides eager to help you immerse yourself in local sites. The hotel honors the ancient tradition of the Incan tambo as a hospitable shelter for weary travelers on the road.
