Cusco & The Sacred Valley
Rio Sagrado, A Belmond Hotel

Set on the banks of the Urubamba River amidst towering mountains and within delightful gardens, this luxury hotel provides a wonderful home from which to explore this fascinating area.

Built in natural materials to resemble an authentic Andean village, it is located 4km outside Urubamba on the way to Ollantaytambo. Situated at a lower altitude than nearby Cusco, the hotel provides the perfect environment in which to acclimatise. Enjoy a cooling dip in the heated swimming pool or simply relax and take in the sights and sounds of the river while you lounge on a sunbed, Pisco Sour in hand. The beautifully furnished villas and suites all have private terraces overlooking the river so you are assured of a peaceful, relaxing stay.

Facilities & Activities

The hotel offers a selection of delightful amenities, including a swimming pool and Spa Mayu Willka with indoor/outdoor jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. There is also a business centre and the hotel benefits from Wi-Fi throughout.

Of course the main draw is the location and the hotel offers a wide selection of tours, both cultural and adventure-based, to enable you to make the most of your stay. Speak to the concierge  if you want to try your hand at horse-riding, hiking, fishing, paragliding, rock climbing and river rafting.
