Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado in Cusco, Peru
Nestled in Peru's Sacred Valley, a land once belonging to the ancient Inca Empire, you will find a stunning riverfront resort basking in this remote location. Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado is a place where past meets present, showcasing streamlined rooms that rest beneath timbered and beam ceilings. No detail is left to chance, so expect the unexpected. You will discover stylized retreats that pay homage to 13th-century Incan design, with textured walls that are cloaked in warm colors, wooden floors, terraces that gaze across the unspoiled land, and breathtaking valley and river views. Slightly tilted windows that make the most of the sun's rays are masterfully positioned above the oversize shower, creating the illusion of being in the great outdoors.
Much of the excellence of Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado experience comes from the exceptional service and amenities. El Huerto, the hotel's signature restaurant, dives into the culinary arts with a menu that showcases Peruvian cuisine, and La Cava Bar pours a lengthy list of spirits. Room service includes trays of gourmet sandwiches, soups and salads, as well as signature dishes from El Huerto. Spa Mayu Wilka, shaded by a grove of trees and framed with bouquets of wild flowers, presents a list of services packed with soothing and supple treatments. Stroll the property at your own leisure, or hop aboard the golf cart shuttle to be ferried to and from the restaurant, spa or sparkling pool. When you are not enjoying the pleasures of this pristine resort, spend the day exploring the ancient citadel of Machu Picchu. At Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado, lavish comfort and fascinating Peruvian history lie in the palm of your hand.

Reviews for Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado
Not only is this the most special property in the Sacred Valley it is equally matched with the most welcoming, friendly and proud of their heritage staff! From the Phyllis the Manager to Cesar the Bartender...everyone is so friendly. The rooms are so private and and comfortable. The shower is amazing and all the special touches that they do are over the top! The property is so unique in that it is beautifully designed where all the rooms feel private, the river is viewed from everywhere, and the flora and gardens are so well done. My recommendation to anyone making the long journey to start here first and take a day to adjust to the altitude. Drink the coca tea, swing in the hammocks by the river, take a dip in the infinitely edge pool, feed the alpacas, go to the spa overlooking the river, drink a Pisco cocktail made by Cesar and have a fabulous dinner (have the avacado salad).....then retreat to the wonderful room!
We had the best Pisco Experience with our bartender Ceasar. Lots of fun and learning!čśäIt's a wonderful place as well! Great personel, very friendly and professional! The hotel is the best in town čĹŹčĆ╗.
The Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado is located on beautiful grounds along the banks of the Urubamba River in the town of the same name. The approach by road to the hotel gives not even a hint of what lies beyond. The welcome lobby is located just inside the gates and from a height of at least 100 feet overlooks a green carpet of grass that stretches several hundred yards to the river. Beautiful. Once registered, guests and their luggage are driven in a golf cart down a winding path past the terraced rooms. Our room had a king sized bed with full attached bath. Although we greatly enjoyed the private outdoor patio, the size of the room itself was a bit snug. Our biggest criticism, however, is about the bed. Simply far too soft and lumpy, as well as not being nearly supportive enough for most tastes. Helping guests to stay in touch with home is their Wi-fi. Blanketing the whole property, it is speedy and reliable. Particularly if the mattress was more supportive, my wife and I would both enjoy staying here again. The setting of the hotel is truly exceptional, the staff friendly and accommodating, and it all comes with an on-premises restaurant that serves up some very fine food.

We stayed here for three nights in March, having chosen this property over the others in the area for its small, intimate size, its quiet location and the glowing reviews on TA and elsewhere. Our warm welcome started long before we arrived. I must have sent 20 emails requesting tours, transfers, restaurant bookings and more, and Luz always responded quickly and with a tone that made it clear she was happy to do anything that she could to make our stay special. Those first impressions set high expectations, but they were met and exceeded throughout our stay. Our junior suite (18) was gorgeous and private, with just the right balance of polished luxury and rustic touches that perfectly fit the surroundings. Service was always warm (Vanessa at the front desk went above and beyond for us more than once). A few tips: - Have the hotel arrange an airport pickup that includes a guided tour of Cusco and Saqsaywaman on the way to the property. This let us "see" Cusco and a few sights as soon as we landed, without having to spend too much time at Cusco's high elevation right away. - Try the Willka massage at the spa. - We had great meals nearby at Tres Keros (casual) and Killa Wasi (more formal, but very cozy) - Ask for a pisco sour making lesson at the bar - Spend some time in the outdoor jacuzzi, especially later in the day when it cools off. We were genuinely sad to leave, and hope to return someday soon.

Nestled away outside Urubamba and located right on the Urubamba river, it's a slice of paradise in the Peruvian countryside. We received the white glove treatment, including a lovely historical discussion with Andy and a gin tasting with our bartender Cesar. The rooms were well furnished; comfortable with nice sized bathrooms. The food was delicious and the grounds were spectacular. Highly recommend!
