Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel

After a strenuous day at Machu Picchu, there's no better place to kick back and relax than the Inkaterra hotel, which is just a bus ride down from the Incan ruins. It doesn't get much dreamier than sitting by one of the fireplaces in the communal spaces with a Pisco Sour in hand. I remember heading back to my room after a drink and climbing under the covers, jumping up when I felt the round mound under my covers, and then being totally delighted when I realized housekeeping had left a hot water bottle under the covers to warm up the bed! It's these little details that always get me.

Above: My room and overall shots of the property.
Below: Some photos of the common areas.

I also got a nice peek at one of the larger suites, which had its own private outdoor shower and heated dipping pool in the backyard (!!). If you're feeling particularly indulgent, you can also book a treatment at the Unu spa. I had a nice massage there after a day at Machu Picchu and I cannot recommend it more.

Disclosure: This stay was part of my South America trip that was provided by LAN Airlines.


  1. Your exposure control is always wonderful Alice. Keep up the great work!

  2. Wow, beautiful place and a possible honeymoon option for this Fall :) Thanks!

  3. This post is beautiful, but made me laugh out loud! It is a complete juxtaposition from my trip to Machu Picchu where after visiting the ruins, my sweetheart and I hiked back down the mountain, then followed the train tracks for an exhausting amount of miles/hours until we found a tiny town, hopped on a collectivo for a crazy ride to another town where we could sleep in the most sketch hostel you have every seen! Even though we were beyond tired, sleep did not come easily; men were fighting all night outside our door, plus a banging on the walls at 4am to get our money for the room! Hahaha ahhhh traveling! Love it! I'm new to your blog, but totally loving it! Thanks for an opportunity to reminisce.

  4. What a beautiful home. I love the large windows and white linens
