Hotel Libertador Palacio del Inka

Location
Cusco, Peru

A storied mansion dating back nearly five centuries, the Hotel Libertador Palacio del Inka is located in the historic center of the ancient Andean city of Cusco, directly opposite the Korikancha (Temple of the Sun) and just two blocks from the main square. The luxury hotel occupies the grandiose Casa de los Cuatro Bustos” where Francisco Pizarro, first Spanish governor of Peru, once lived. Built on the foundations of an old Inca site, some of its original walls still remain. The interior design, decor and handcrafted furnishings evoke Peru's colonial past. The hotel's 203 rooms have carved wooden doors, tapestries, and paintings and mirrors in gold frames. Though the ambience pays homage to bygone days, guests enjoy a full array of contemporary amenities, from luxury beds with fine linens to state-of-the-art technology, including an LED TV, high-speed Internet access, and an iPod docking station. A lavish breakfast buffet is served in the Inti Raymi restaurant, which specializes in haute Peruvian cuisine. Ranked by Conde Naste Traveler as one of the top hotels in South America, this classic property adds an opulent element to our Peruvian adventure.

Sol y Luna

Location
Urubamba, Peru

Sol y Luna is an award-winning luxury boutique hotel set within the natural oasis of the Peru’s famous Sacred Valley. Fourteen bungalows span the lush grounds, backdropped by the peaks of the surrounding Andes. Constructed of locally made adobe bricks, handcrafted stonework and rustic log beams, each colorful bungalow is built in harmony with the natural environment and has a private flagstone veranda from which to take in the glorious views. Spacious interiors are decorated with authentic local folk art, while large en suite tiled bathrooms offer every amenity.

As delightful as the bungalows are, guests at Sol y Luna will be drawn outside to enjoy the lavish flower gardens, laced with nature trails and home to 35 different species of birds. Or, relax and recreate in the swimming pool, sauna or gym. Yoga and Tai Chi classes are also available, as well as an enticing selection of soothing treatments at the Yacu Wasi ("House of Water") Spa. The hotel's Killa Wasi restaurant is also a highlight, featuring creative gourmet cuisine by award-winning chefs and sourced from local artisan organic producers. Meals often showcase fresh fruits and vegetables from Sol y Luna's own organic garden. Guests at family-owned and run Sol y Luna will enjoy exceptional hospitality in an incomparable setting in the Andes foothills.

Note: The hotels we use in the Sacred Valley for this adventure occasionally vary, but will be comparable in terms of quality and atmosphere.

Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel

Location
Aguas Calientes, Peru

The Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel sits in seclusion on the Urubamba River in the village of Aguas Calientes, near the ruins but away from the crowds. Its Andean-style wood and stone bungalows are scattered throughout a tropical flower garden that boasts more than 300 species of orchids. Beneath the terracotta tile roofs of each casita, guest rooms feature private fireplaces, beds with thick alpaca blankets and handmade wool coverlets, spa-style bathrooms, and comfortable areas for sitting and relaxing. The hotel's Unu Spa offers classic and Andean-style therapies featuring all-natural products derived from botanical extracts, in a mystical, candlelit environment. A unique Andean sauna, where stones are heated in a candle-lit eucalyptus hut, is located next to the natural spring water pond. Cafe Inkaterra serves Andean cuisine overlooking the Vilcanota River, while the hotel's fine dining room features creative fusion fare with views of the Urubamba River.

Delfin II

Location
Amazon River, Peru

Built in 2009 for Amazon river cruising, the Delfin II is 135 feet long and carries up to 30 passengers in 14 deluxe suites. The ship’s design and amenities incorporate features from the rain forest environs, including salvaged forest hardwoods, collected irapay leaves (typically seen on residential huts) that form the roof, and custom-made lotions made of natural jungle ingredients in each guest cabin. Artisan handcrafts made by local village women vibrantly enhance the dining room and every suite.

All guests suites have air conditioning; a king or two double beds with cool, Peruvian pima cotton bedding, indoor sitting area, large en suite bathroom with hot-water showers, organic toiletries and hair dryer, safe box and floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows that provide unobstructed views of the ever-changing river conditions, wildlife and communities along the shore. The covered open top deck features gleaming hardwoods, comfortable lounge furniture, ceiling fans for cooling and a soaking spa. A yoga and exercise room provide a space for pursuing fitness and relaxation. Inside, guests can relax and enjoy board games, films and naturalist presentations in the spacious air-conditioned lounge. The Delfin II has an open bridge policy, and guests are welcome to learn about the navigation systems and chat with the captain at any time.

Most of Delfin II’s staff guides were born and raised in the rain forest, in small communities throughout the Peruvian Amazon. They spent their childhoods walking forest paths, climbing trees to pick fruit, fishing the small streams and chasing iguanas along the shoreline. Now, they are proud to share their knowledge and passion with travelers from around the world. Many have also participated in training sessions and projects with Peruvian and North American professors, researchers, scientists and other professionals involved with the study and conservation of the Amazon rain forest. And, as guests will discover during their cruise, they also have delightful musical talents to share!
