Tucked into a quiet corner of the picturesque Sacred Valley, between Cusco and Machu Picchu, is this beautiful sprawling property, a haven of relaxation and tranquillity with an arty and whimsical character. It’s the perfect base for enjoying the outdoors and exploring the Sacred Valley, as well as day trips to Machu Picchu, and a top Sacred Valley hotel recommendation from Good Life Expeditions.
Socially Responsible Hotel, Sol y Luna
With a similar mission and ethos as Good Life Expeditions, all profits from the hotel go towards financing the Sol y Luna Association, which runs schools, education and social programs in the local community. Sustainability and support for the local children are central to the existence of the hotel, and the Swiss / French couple that own and manage the hotel split their time between the managing the local school and the hotel.
Guest rooms are housed in individual casitas made of adobe bricks and other local materials. They are large and spacious and decorated with beautiful Peruvian textiles and local folk art. Luxurious bedding include Peruvian pima cotton and goose-down comforters. En-suite bathrooms are all marble with soaking tubs, double sinks and local toiletries. Outdoor terraces offer stunning views of the Andes and the valley. Deluxe and Premium units offer more space, 32-inch TVs, preloaded I-pods and luxurious L’Occitane toiletries. Some feature wood-burning fireplaces and hot tubs on the terrace.
Unwind in the Sacred Valley
The hotel’s newly upgraded spa is a beautiful place to relax and unwind, offering massages and reflexology treatments, salt hydrotherapy and a whirlpool. Tai chi and yoga sessions are available on request. The large outdoor pool is flanked by inviting chaise lounges – the perfect spot for unwinding and relaxing. The well-equipped gym overlooks the pool.
There are two onsite restaurants, an art boutique and gallery. Public spaces are ample including a cosy library with a fireplace for the cooler evenings. With their own stables, Sol y Luna arranges horseback riding and other excursions through the Sacred Valley.
