Tivoli Palacio de Seteais (6) vs. Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel (11) Enjoy a romantic dinner in the elegance of an XVIII century palace at Tivoli Palacia de Seteais in a room filled with treasures such as the frescos painted by the famous Jean Baptiste Pillement. Enjoy a bath with a view of Machu Picchu Mountain at the Sumaq Machu Picchu Hotel, tucked in Peru's natural wonders.
Each guest room and suite offers a private balcony that faces the mountains leading up to Machu Picchu, as well as the river, which makes an incredible sountrack. I could spend days just taking in the views from this hotel, but there is more to do. Like enjoying a private pisco sour - making class or a facial at the Aqlla Spa, featuring products made from local quinoa.
When we were planning our luxury trip to Machu Picchu, we wanted to stay at a place that went beyond the typical backpacker lodging. This was a trip of a lifetime for us, one that I had been dreaming about for years. We were looking for the perfect place. That’s how we discovered Hotel Sumaq, a Peruvian owned luxury hotel at the foot of the road that leads to Machu Picchu.
Visiting Machu Picchu with a baby and a toddler seems like a far flung idea to most. The altitude, the hiking, the water and food, how did we manage? These are some of the hundreds of questions I got asked on social media when we visited. It seems there is a lot of confusion about how to get to Machu Picchu with kids. Lets just say we did it the lazy way. We flew from Lima to Cusco, took a taxi to Sacred Valley, and finally took a train to Aguas Calientes where we stayed for three nights. Our hotel was just twenty minutes from the entry to Machu Picchu, so it was very easy and accessible.
Back at the hotel, guests can participate in a one-hour Payment to the Earth Ritual on the hotel's private terrace. This traditional practice of making offerings to Pachamama, or Mother Earth, has been passed down from the time of the Incas, as Ancient Peruvians held Pachamama sacred. This ritual remains a part of daily life for many locals in surrounding regions of Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley.
This is where the magic happens, literally. Staying in the imperial suite at the five-star Sumaq Machu Picchu hotel is a mystical experience. Designed around the Andean cross and honoring the four elements, this hotel will indulge your spirit and your corporeal self. Take part in the "Payment to the Earth" ritual and have your coca leaves read by a third-generation Andean shaman. Try a gourmet tasting menu designed by chef Rafael Piqueras, formerly of Sapin's El Bulli, in the glass-walled terrace room.
