Unashamedly luxurious from top to bottom, the Tambo del Inka hotel sits proudly on the banks of the mighty Urubamba River in the Sacred Valley. Designed by a prominent Peruvian architect, the enormous lobby has towering ceilings which are supported by attractive wooden beams and stonework. The area is adorned with rich Peruvian colours, artwork and cosy furniture, making a perfect spot to soak in the views from the impressive floor to ceiling windows. Rooms are particularly generous and airy, and feature all the modern conveniences. The hotel has a private train station to Machu Picchu, but before you make the journey you should allow time to enjoy the therapeutic spa and pool, gym and refined dining options available at the hotel.
