Just outside Aguas Calientes, this collection of charming whitewashed casitas creates a small, peaceful village of its own. At the foot of the mountains, they are spread across a stunning 12-acre cloud forest reserve, with hundreds of bird and orchid species and an otherworldly magic in the air. Andean fabrics, colonial wood furniture and exposed eucalyptus beams characterise its ample, pared back rooms - with alpaca blankets, heaters and fireplaces perfect for colder nights. Its terraced Peruvian restaurant is surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows that offer verdant views, sights of the Vilcanota River, and fluffy clouds drifting slowly by.
A remarkable spa uses only natural ingredients from local botanical extracts for its treatments, such as a sauna followed by a body wrap in tea leaves from Inkaterra's plantation. With a Springwater plunge pool, this property is full of cobbled paths, scenic trails, hot springs and ancient Incan petroglyphs - an intoxicating destination in itself, much like Machu Picchu.
