Belmond Sanctuary Lodge in Machu Picchu, Peru
Machu Picchu is truly a must-see, must-experience destination. Steeped in history and located high in the Peruvian Andes, there is only one hotel located within walking distance of the ancient Inca citadel - Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge by Orient-Express. With just 29 rooms and a pair of suites, and the most spectacular mountain views, the lodge offers accommodations that feature classic appointments and modern amenities alike - from mini bars and cable television, to direct telephone access and bottled water. As wonderful as Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge is, it plays only a supporting role in its stunning surroundings. One of the world's most breathtaking sites, Machu Picchu is a sacred and magical place.
The lodge enchants its every guest, boasting interior gardens that flutter with colorful birds seeking out the abundance of native flora. A team of fine chefs work behind kitchen doors to create a menu of international and Andean specialties that are served in the inviting Tampu Restaurant Bar. For lunch enjoy a feast for all senses at Tinkuy Buffet Restaurant, or choose to dine in with all-day room service. Machu Picchu, better known as the Lost City of the Incas, uncovers an almost forgotten culture that has been preserved through its architecture and recovered relics. Blessed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can hike to the ruins and time travel to a society that no longer exists. Walk 15 minutes to soak in natural thermal baths warmed by the layers of the earth, or explore the lush jungle and its many treasures. The perfect base to discover all that this destination offers, Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge is a superior and unforgettable experience.

Reviews for Belmond Sanctuary Lodge
Skip the early morning bus from the bottom of the mountain and stay here if you can. The experience is unique, especially in the early morning or late afternoon where you have the whole park pretty much to yourself once the crowds have left (not going to go into detail on how amazing Machu Picchu itself is,youbhave to see that for yourself). The team was fantastic, Wilson at reception helped us out immensely with tours and general information. It's quite special at night with the pisco tasting, gourmet dinner and Machu Picchu band (get the half board if you can as you can't go down to the village at night). Then you go to bed and realise you're almost alone in the peaks of the Andes. Meals, rooms, spa and general feel are all superb. I know it's pricey but I'd highly recommend it.

Our family struggled over whether or not to stay at this property as it was much more expensive than our normal hotel selections. It was definitely worth it! The property is beautiful, comfortable, and peaceful. However, the best thing about it is the proximity to Machu Picchu and being able to avoid the 25 minute bus ride up the mountain from all of the other area hotels. Hands down, this was the best decision we made on our recent trip to Machu Picchu.

We had a great family vacation just prior to Christmas. Arranged everything through Belmond as had stayed at the Belmond Monisterio in Cusco. They really helped arrange everything via email before we arrived in Peru! Staff was fantastic, accommodations (had 2 suites) were comfortable and a real plus being right there. Family really enjoyed the spa too. (AMEX platinum gives you a great spa credit) Agree if you can do it do the 2 night stay and not feel rushed. The food was wonderful as well. All baggage was taken up and down for us and they could not have been more accommodating. Sure its expensive (all meals are included) but for that once in a lifetime trip was well worth it.

We just got back from Machu Picchu. While the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge location cannot be beat, getting to the train station from there is a major problem. We had to stand in line for an hour and a half in the rain to catch a bus for the 20 min ride down the hill. We got no help from the Lodge! Never mind that you are paying very high rates and going from one Belmond hotel to another. The hotel claims that they have no priority with the bus operators and there is no other way of transferring from the hotel to the train station! BE AWARE!! Also, the rooms are tiny and the food is bad! Belmond is being short sighted if they think they have a monopoly on this location.
Definitely expensive, but a great hotel with incredible service, and what you are buying is the convenience of the location. Being 50m from the entrance of the site gives you the chance to be there early before the crowd arrives, and to pause at some point for breakfast or lunch. Be aware that the parc opens at 7:00 but that the bus from Aguascalientes start earlier than that. So as you step out of the hotel at 6:55 to be at the fron of the line, you are likely to find already 200 people who have taken the early bus from the bottom of the valley to also be there at the opening. But being the 201 guest of the days is still a fantastic experience and if you are lucky you'll get a sunrise.
