A stay at the Inkaterra’s Machu Picchu property will delight nature-lovers. Despite its location in Machu Picchu town, the hotel feels a world away from the hustle and bustle thanks to oasis-like setting in lush gardens backed by cloud forest. Though the surrounding forests can make some of the rooms feel a little dark, upgrading to the Superior Deluxe category or above offers the advantage of your own fireplace to giving a bright and cosy feel when you retire for the evening. As well as an outdoor swimming pool and spa, the hotel has its own series of forest trails and you can choose between a range of free-of-charge activities during your stay such as bird watching, nature walks or orchid walks. There are also a number of other unique tours available for an additional cost – particularly popular is the visit to an Andean Spectacled Bear project.
