My Wellness Trip to Machu Picchu: The Center of The Universe: This visit to Cuzco is to experience the indigenous practices and native ingredients incorporated into the luxe packages at leading hotels. My first stop is Sumaq a five-star hotel located in Pueblo Machu Picchu. Surrounded by abundant vegetation and sheltered by the Andean mountains, this luxurious setting is a thrilling preview of the magnificent Machu Picchu archaeological site.
Following a midafternoon arrival in the town of Machu Picchu Pueblo, it's a short walk or complimentary car transfer to the sumaq machu picchu hotel. The boutique property sits at the foot of the sanctuary and each of its room overlooks the rushing Urubamba river. Such a coveted perch calls for a serious commitment to sustainability, and Sumaq received Rainforest alliance certification for its progressive environmental and sociocultural practices. More then 80 percent of its staff members, for example, come from nearby coomunities, and the hotel offers a variety of experiential activities that help preserve andean culture.
Hospedar-se no povoado de Aguas Calientes, ou Machu Picchu Pueblo, como é chamado atualmente, é, sem dúvida, a melhor opção para quem quer chegar cedo e descansado ao Patrimônio Cultural e Natural da Humanidade. O SUMAQ Hotel Machu Picchu, que foi totalmente renovado há um ano e tem uma linda decoração andina, está numa localização privilegiada: ﬁca aos pés do santuário e às margens do Rio Vilcanota. Peça um quarto com vista para o rio, para poder dormir com um barulhinho bom.
Discover the ruins of an Incan city - and get some cardio in during a hike up Machu Picchu in Peru. The trip begins with a flight to Cuzco, followed by a four - hour train ride from Poroy Station to Aguas Calientes.
Once you arrive in Aguas Calientes, the Sumaq Hotel is just a short walk from the train station. Located at the base of the cloud forest that surrounds Machu Picchu, the hotel offers stunning views of Urubamba River and valley, a still-sacred Inca landscape. What makes Sumaq special, aside from that stunning view, is the hotel’s dedication to sustainable travel and local traditions.
To give your legs a rest, take an outdoor cooking class using a stone oven to prepare dishes covered with leaves; or enjoy an Incan-inspired treatment at the Aqlla Spa.
