Belmond Rio Sagrado

Cusco, Sacred Valley, & Machu Picchu

Set in the heart of Peru’s Sacred Valley of the Incas, Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado sits within lush gardens on the banks of the Urubamba River. Built to resemble a rural Andean village, this luxurious resort offers the perfect combination of Old World charm and contemporary comfort.

The elegant rooms, suites and villas are designed to reflect the ambience of the Sacred Valley, with earthy tones and vibrant Peruvian textiles. All rooms have a private terrace, while the suites and family-size villas have spacious living areas and gardens.

El Jardin is an idyllic spot to lunch by the river, while El Huerto restaurant serves local specialities and international cuisine.

Explore the Sacred Valley on horseback, go rafting down the river, participate in a mystic ceremony with an Andean Shaman, and visit Machu Picchu by train. Take a dip in the pool, unwind with a signature Willka massage, and sip a pisco sour in the bar.
