Las Qolqas Eco Resort is our newest accommodation in Peru, recently opening its doors to visitors in 2020. This lodge offers a holistic experience of the Sacred Valley, an opportunity to become more connected to the natural and historical virtues of a simply spectacular setting, without leaving any footprint on the precious environment.
‘Qolqas’ are important Inca structures used as storehouses for grains and textiles. This lodging aims to take visitors on a step back in time, to the simple way of life of traditional Andean culture. With unadulterated views of the mountains and archeological sites on the borders, along with all the modern amenities for optimum ease and comfort, nestle right into the secluded valley that has been treasured by its occupants for hundreds of years.
Wake up amongst Las Qolqas’ botanical gardens, hosting a variety of the Sacred Valley’s indigenous plants, trees and herbs. Breath the fresh and fragrant mountain air, wander down pathways lined with the herbs and fertile fruiting trees. Observe giant hummingbirds and their smaller cousins up close as they flit by for a feed, and span out across the framing mountains and flowing Patacancha River.
Hike to ancient ruins, climb to vast vistas and experience secluded waterfalls right from your doorstep. Relax in the all-natural spa where massages are inspired by native rituals and essential oils from the valley are used to introduce you to the benefits of the products of the region. Simply relax in a sauna or hot-tub with the river as your view, or experience unique wellness methods in outdoor water circuits.
Las Qolqas is a wonderful option for those wishing to experience the Sacred Valley’s natural virtues up-close and personal. This lodge was originally meant to be a luxury eco-hotel, but for low environmental impact purposes, they decided to use tented accommodation which really immerses visitors in the amazingly colourful ecosystem here. This is a really special, unique stay so close to the famous Inca town of Ollantaytambo.
