The Experience

Hotel Rio Sagrado

In the Sacred Valley of the Incas, among verdant fields and towering mountains, lies Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado. Set on the banks of Urubamba River, this beautiful hotel is the best place to start your journey to Machu Picchu since it is located at a lower altitude than nearby Cuzco, which provides the perfect environment to relax and acclimatize. It is also close to artisans’ and farmers’ markets andimportant archaeological sites. So savour fresh produce in the restaurant, enjoy a local massage in the spa and slip into the spirit of Peruvian life.

It is the former heart of the Inca Empire, starting just 10 miles outside of Cusco and even reaching Machu Picchu. Trips here reward visitors with incomparable Inca ruins, stunning Andean mountain vistas, charming towns, a good climate, and plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy the countryside.  Rushing through the Sacred Valley is the Urubamba River.
