Amazing! The location is incredible! It was a stressful time to travel (Covid-19) but we had a wonderful stay at the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are not fancy but clean and comfortable. The food is good too!

Absolutely fabulous hotel- Must stay 2 nights!

What an unbelievable way to visit Machu Picchu! The Belmond is an incredible hotel and well worth the splurge. Staying 2 nights was so worth it and I would encourage others to do this. Our room was lovely and very comfortable, the food was absolutely fabulous (and we are big foodies) and the staff was just the best. We spent so much time talking to them and learning about their lives, families, Peru, - it was an education- not a tourist visit to a site you check off your bucket list. I loved that the food and drinks were included in the cost because it made us try new things that were recommended. The pisco tasting in the evening was really fun and we ended up meeting a great couple that we hung out with after dinner. That is such a great part of traveling- meeting people and building life long friendships. The type of people at the Belmond Sanctuary lodge were very friendly, outgoing, interesting, and diverse. It was the perfect combination. I highly recommend getting a guide for your visit to MP. Our guide Beltran was incredible and the hotel arranged everything. He not only was very informative, witty, and interesting, he was also crucial to my husband getting up and down all the narrow steps and walking trails! My husband swears he would not have been able to navigate and complete our visit without his help. Our visit to Machu Picchu was fabulous but the Belmond Sactuary Lodge made it just so much more special, less rushed, and much more pampered.
