Belmond Sanctuary Lodge



In the midst of Peru, where a cool breeze teases the shady trees and surpasses the Inca Citadel of Machu Picchu, the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge is the perfect residence for tourists. Located right at the entrance, it is the best treatment a tourist could wish for when planning to hike the incredible Machu Picchu. Traditional goodies from Peru greet the guests. They are rid of their luggage from the entrance to experience the true bliss of this small luxury hotel right from the start. Moreover, guests from all over the world, including the United States, come here every year.

History

The Sanctuary Lodge, a Belmond Hotel, Machu Picchu, underwent multiple name changes. This was after many renovations, takeovers, and political interferences. The site of this hotel was once a barren land with a few huts and tiny houses. Here, monks visiting on pilgrimage would come to stay for a few nights. However, soon a building was constructed on the site and named Entur Peru.

Once the government started taking control of all the monasteries and religious locations, the hotel was again renamed Enturin. The regional government of Cusco, a city in Peru, then took it over. Supervised by Peru's National Institute of Culture and run by Orient-Express Hotel, the lodge was named Belmond Sanctuary Lodge in 2014.

Location

Securing a prominent location, Belmond Sanctuary Lodge is on top of the glorious mountains within the ruins and the monastery. All you need to do is take a three-and-a-half-hour journey from Cusco to the beautiful streets of Aguas Caliente. Next, head over for a thirty-minute drive to the lodge. Moreover, you don't have to worry about anything once you are at this spacious residence and around. The most helpful people you will ever meet will be there to assist.

Additionally, the magical gardens are perfect for sitting and relaxing in the early morning. So whether you want to enjoy your breakfast or have a glass of champagne with your partner, Belmond Sanctuary Lodge guarantees a peaceful stay. There will not be a dull moment throughout your stay. Moreover, the hotel's prime location makes the ancient citadel very accessible. Besides, it is the only hotel located at the entrance to Machu Picchu.

Rooms and Suites

Staying at Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, there are four different kinds of rooms. These are Standard rooms, Superior Terrace Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, and Bedroom Suites. The Standard Room has all the required LCD Satellite TV and minibar access. Plus, the Superior Terrace Rooms give you the additional benefit of accessing wireless internet. Moreover, each room provides twin or king-sized beds if you visit with a friend.

The rooms also feature a bold interior design, which complements the subtle view of the big windows display. After all, isn't it spectacular to have undisrupted mountain views from your bed? Moreover, the city's panoramic views and purified air are worth visiting and availing of the perks of the Belmond Sanctuary Hotel. It is no less than a haven for tourists.

In total, the luxury hotel has a small number of rooms, so consider yourself lucky if you can reserve a spot there for your vacation. However, the hotel features 29 lavish rooms and two executive suites that take comfort to a new level. Besides, these suites offer pretty much the same as the rooms, but with extra amenities.
