“Inkaterra Villas - A Bit of Indulgence in Peru”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2008

When we finally pulled into the drive at the Inkaterra villas, all we could say (along with the taxi driver) was --Wow!

The previous reviewer was spot on; beautiful gardens, interesting local artifacts in the villa's decor, very comfortable furnishings; perfectly lovely for us during a rainy evening.

Sitting in front of a fire built by the villa's private housekeeper, having a glass of wine while she cooked a homemade dinner was a great way to unwind before attempting the altitude, and walking the cathedrals and museums of Cusco.

We had come from Inkaterra's Machu Picchu lodge which kept us very busy; the relaxation factor really kicked in at the villa.

The ambiance is gracious luxury; we wish we had such a villa to visit more often. The pictures posted are perfect so I did not need to add any. I'd definitely recommend a stay here while touring the Sacred Valley.

We stayed at the Inkaterra Urubamba Villas for one night during our recent trip to Peru. We loved it.

It's not a hotel in the traditional sense; rather, it's a compound of 5 or 6 villas set among beautiful lawns and gardens, walled off from the surrounding village. The whole complex is nestled in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, and you have beautiful views of the surrounding mountains in every direction.

Our villa had a master bedroom and bathroom, eat-in-kitchen, living room with a fireplace. There was also a loft bedroom with 3 twin-size beds, and a second bathroom. In the front was a nice lawn surrounded by flowers and gardens. The whole villa was decorated with beautiful artwork and colorful blankets. The bed was very comfortable (high thread-count sheets and a nice down comforter). The bathroom was stocked with thick fluffy towels and organic toiletries. The water pressure in the shower was phenomenal.

The setting is remote, a little bit outside the village of Urubamba, so you can't walk anywhere other than around the grounds. This was fine with us, because we only stayed for 1 night to recover from our flight and acclimate to the altitude a bit before we headed on to Aguas Caliente and Machu Picchu.

The service was excellent. Immediately upon arrival, we were ushered to our villa and given cold towels, an organic lemongrass drink, and a snack. Eric, the manager, was very friendly and informative as he welcomed us and explained the services we would receive.

We had a lovely housekeeper who was assigned to our villa. In the evening she made a fire in our fireplace and cooked a wonderful 4-course dinner for us in our kitchen (included in the rate). It was the best meal we had during the entire trip. After dinner we had tea in front of the fireplace and listened to music on the stereo while the housekeeper turned down our bed with hot water bottles. She left shortly afterwards and returned the next morning to cook a delicious breakfast for us with fresh fruit, cereals, fresh-baked bread, ham and cheese, and quinoa pancakes.

The whole experience was what I would call "comfortable luxury." Inkaterra has thought of every detail and we left the Urubamba Villas feeling pampered, refreshed, and ready for the adventure ahead.

  • Liked — Beautiful setting, "comfortably luxurious" accommodations, and wonderful service
  • Disliked — It's a bit out-of-the-way
