From salt mines in the Sacred Valley dating to pre-inca days to the colonial inspired town of Urubamba and majestic Machu Picchu, there’s much more to Peru than ancient wonders and mundane tourist spots.
The food at Sumaq Machu Picchu is phenomenal . From the formal dining to the cooking class, from the welcoming drinks and snacks to the treats delivered to my room: I was impressed.
I never realized how lovely clean red roses, handmade tablecloths, and leather menus laced with alpaca wool were on a train until I had them on the Inca Rail. I’ve taken my fair share of rinky- dink locomotives, but refreshing trout from the Sacred Valley coated in crispy quinoa, free flowing Tacama Gran Tinto from southern Peru, and refreshing Pisco sours served by men in burgundy tuxedos had me fearing I’d never go back to my sticky floor, foam seat train days
Maybe it’s the location, right at the base of Machu Picchu. Or the way it’s tucked into a private perch between the granite slabs of the Andes and the flowing Vilcanota River. Or the mystical Sacred Valley that surrounds it and infuses everything with its glow. Whichever the cause, the result is apparent: There are few places more unique to celebrate your nuptials than Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel, a boutique property in Aguas Caliente, the gateway to Machu Picchu.
Machu Picchu hotels put shaman to work In the highlands surrounding Machu Picchu in Peru, luxury hotels are calling on Andean shamans to spiritually cleanse their guests, renew wedding vows and lead ceremonies to offer gratitude to mother earth.
