Hotel Sol y Luna, located just outside Urubamba between the famous market of Pisac and the archaeological site of Ollantaytambo, offers the perfect base for exploring one of the most intriguing parts of the Andes.
Hotel Sol y Luna has 43 individual casitas made of adobe, wood and stone to give an authentic Inca feel, with lots of colourful local textiles, handicrafts and Peruvian inspired artwork. All have a private terrace and big modern bathrooms, whilst upgrading to one of the larger premium category casitas will secure you an outdoor hot tub and a living area.
The property is listed in the prestigious Relais & Chateaux portfolio, and guests can expect mouth-watering dishes no matter what time of day. During the afternoon, the Wayra restaurant puts on a delicious barbecue spread and dinners can enjoy a show with Peruvian Paso horses whilst they lunch. The Killa Wasi Restaurant serves Novo Andino cuisine, a distinctive blend of Andean, coastal and international flavours. There is also an exquisite wine cellar where private dining experiences curated by the chef can be arranged.
Additional hotel facilities include an outdoor swimming pool, a well-stocked craft shop, and Yacu Wasi spa. The spa features a fully-equipped gym, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi, and Spanish bath. A wide selection of spa therapies are offered including facials, wraps and masks, along with newer treatments such as music therapy, and energy therapies such as Reiki. Massages include traditional Swedish massage, shiatsu, aromatherapy and reflexology massages. Classes or personal sessions in yoga and tai chi are also available.
The surrounding countryside is home to fascinating Inca ruins including Pisac, Ollantaytambo, Maras and Moray and is an excellent departure point for the awe-inspiring lost city of Machu Picchu. One can also enjoy a range of activities booked at the reception; including horse-riding (the hotel has its own stables and well-trained horses), quad-biking, rafting, kayaking, mountain-biking and paragliding.
