Families & Couples

Machu Picchu Pueblo is a lodge of cobblestone pathways weaving through the dense cloud forest that surrounds the Vilcanota River. Nature feels intrepid here, a stay immerses you entirely in terraced hills, masses of orchids and gushing waterfalls. 

The warm Andean lodge is made up of individual casitas, each with high-ceilings and intricately thatched roofs that look and feel at home in this wild environment. Although a stay here is immersed in the forest thickets, Machu Picchu Pueblo is also incredibly accessible. Neighbouring Machu Picchu Pueblo train station and a short walk from the bus stop, it’s the perfect place to beat the crowds and get to Machu Picchu at sunrise.

Arguably the most traditional way to visit Machu Picchu is by foot on the Inca Trail. Machu Picchu Pueblo is the most fitting base for this, as you can set off from the doorstep and commit to a one-day manageable trek, through the sun gate towards the towering ruins. 

In the evenings, return to a comfortable low-lit lodge so close to a historic sanctuary, and nestled into nature. Visit the Unu Spa to treat ailments with aromas and rubs derived from local botanical extracts, and enjoy a swim in the outdoor pool. Machu Picchu Pueblo is in an extensive private reserve, so peace and solitude is easily found here, just outside of the bustling hub of Aguas Calientes.

The Property

Machu Picchu Pueblo is made up of 83 casitas in 12 acres of land, home to the world’s largest orchid collection. There are multiple room types, ranging from ‘Superior’ to the ‘Villa Inkaterra’. Each room is incredibly spacious, and we’d recommend staying in one of the gorgeous suites, equipped with outdoor rain showers, a private garden, a plunge pool and an open fireplace. The casitas are comfortable, fitted with cotton sheets, plump hypoallergenic pillows and decorated with local crafts and wooden beams. 


Inkaterra have an outstanding reputation for excellent guides and an environmentally conscious approach to tourism in Peru. The lodge is well equipped for all your needs, with an exclusive restaurant, cafe and bar; the Unu Spa and Andean eucalyptus sauna with natural treatments; a heated outdoor swimming pool; and grounds that home over 200 endemic bird species including the golden headed quetzal and the Andean cock-of-the-rock, or tunki in Quechua. 


The restaurant was originally built as a large glass house, now boasting exceptional panoramic views of the Vilcanota River and the surrounding terraces. Dining here feels immersed in the natural surroundings, and all food is locally sourced fusion cuisine. Try the fresh caught trout or alpaca meat, both Andean specialties. Alternatively, dining in the more casual Cafe Inkaterra is warm and cozy, open all day, serving quinoa soup and Peruvian staples.
