One of the finest Machu Picchu hotels, Sumaq offers luxurious accommodation, excellent service and the perfect locations to access the famed ruins of Machu Picchu – top of most travelers’ bucket lists for a trip to Peru. For that reasons it’s one of Good Life Expeditions’ top recommendations for a Machu Picchu hotel.

Sumaq Luxury Machu Picchu Hotel

At the bottom of the mountain which the ruins sit on, at the edge of the Aguas Clients town, Sumaq is perched on a hillside overlooking the Vilcanota River with beautiful mountain and river views.

Boasting lavish contemporary interiors with gold and purple tones, the décor pays homage to Peru’s past with Andean textiles and Inca artifacts added to the mix. Welcome pisco sours and complimentary afternoon tea with cake and savory treats are a nice touch, and service is impeccable and available 24 hours a day.

Guest rooms feature either King or two full sized beds and are appointed with luxurious finishings. High speed Wi-Fi, minibars, flat screen TVs and safety deposit boxes are standard. The spacious bathrooms are well-equipped with modern above counter sinks, and good quality toiletries. The suites bring extra wow factor, and the Imperial suite is fit for royalty with a fireplace, whirlpool tub with hydrotherapy and a premium bar with your own bar tender.

Qunuq restaurant features Andean fusion cuisine for lunch and dinner, and the extensive breakfast buffet is also laid out here, starting early for those who want to be first through the gates of Machu Picchu. The fully equipped spa is ready to ease achy muscles after a day walking around the ruins, offering a range of aromatherapy treatments including locally inspired Champi and Andean stone massage. The spa also offers a steam room, sauna and whirlpool.
