Discover Machu Picchu

Carretera Hiram Bingham km 7.5, Machu Picchu, Cusco, Peru

From Peru’s Sacred Valley, you can glimpse Machu Picchu emerging above the clouds. The jagged mountain ridge curves inward, concealing ancient Inca ruins. The entire region surrounding the Urubamba River radiates a mystical energy. You’ll feel it strongest here at the source—Machu Picchu’s legendary citadel.

The nearest town is Aguas Calientes, just a short bus ride away. Sanctuary Lodge, however, is just steps from the lost city. You’ll find us nestled in the mountainside, overlooking this breathtaking UNESCO World Heritage site. A stay here will take you to the very edge of one of the world’s greatest wonders.
