Belmond reveals 'The List' and raises a toast to its beautiful new hotel openings, pioneering rail experiences and once-in-a-lifetime adventures on the horizon in 2018.
Set on the banks of the rushing Urubamba River, in the enchanting Sacred Valley of the Incas, this polished property of natural, endemic materials resembles an Andean village. Built on land that was once used for the cultivation of corn, squash and beans, it is surrounded by fields and stands of eucalyptus trees. Positioned at a lower altitude than Cusco, 60 kilometres away, it is an ideal base for acclimatisation before exploring the valley and Machu Picchu.
The 90-minute drive from Cusco leads through the Andean countryside, passing dramatic mountains and vast agricultural plains, Inca ruins and dusty villages. Visitors enter the hotel to a huge garden with streams overhung by a profusion of flowers and trees. The Rio Sagrado (or Urubamba in the local Quechua language), the Sacred River for which the resort is named, runs along its edge. Guest rooms, dining areas and the spa are dotted among the greenery.
In the Sacred Valley of the Incas, among verdant fields and towering mountains, lies Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado. Designed in the style of a local village, with charming villas constructed from natural materials, it offers views of the mighty Urubamba River from each of the rooms. Located at a lower altitude than Cusco, it provides the perfect environment in which to relax and acclimatize.
