On the outskirts of Urubamba, tropical gardens full of flowering cacti and bougainvillea fringe the adobe stone casitas that make up Sol y Luna. Each face the Andes with attractive terraces; inside, colonial furniture, marble bathrooms and original artworks inspired by the Sacred Valley create a homely and colourful welcome. Top suites boast underfloor heating, fireplaces and private Jacuzzis.
Using the fruits of the local harvest, traditional Andean fare takes on a contemporary edge in the restaurant. The hotel's profits help promote sustainable work for local families - including training four farmers who now supply the restaurant - and education for Sacred Valley children
Between days of outdoor adventure, enjoy a cooking demonstration or watch an incredible Peruvian Paso horse dance in the garden. Follow bright stained glass panels to the spa, where holistic therapies use Andean plants and herbs; or simply wander the expansive gardens, letting serendipity strike in the company of butterflies, friendly hummingbirds and countless other awe-inspiring species along the way.
