Sol Y Luna, Sacred Valley

Peru

Steamy hot tubs and gastronomic delights amid a dramatic landscape.

Venture into the heart of the Sacred Valley just north of Cusco and discover this family-owned country hotel. Here, relaxation, luxury and adventure come with a breath-taking backdrop of soaring mountains.

Peruvian tradition is clear throughout the hotel, with flashes of vibrant colours brightening up the walls and local arts and crafts providing an authentic décor.

Sol y Luna’s grounds, like a verdant oasis amid the towering mountains, are home to thousands of trees. Witness Gigas hummingbirds flitting between flower while you unwind and lose yourself in the serene peacefulness that the hotel provides. Take a dip in the pool and soak up the sun, or relax in your private hot tub to stave off the chilly night temperatures.

Away from the hotel, there is plenty to keep you busy. Explore the inspiring Sacred Valley by horseback, kayak across the tranquil water of Lake Huaypo, or take to the skies and paraglide your way over the dramatic landscape. The team at Sol y Luna can arrange any activity that piques your interest.

After you’ve worked up an appetite, head to one of two restaurants for the finest Peruvian cuisine. Everything possible is produced locally, so dine on the freshest seasonal produce to your heart’s content. Sample the crystallised purple potatoes or try the ultimate local speciality – guinea pig!
