“Lovely hotel, very relaxing”
Reviewed 10 February 2010

We used this as our "base" as we explored the Sacred Valley. The hotel was beautiful, our room was very comfortable. It's a short cab ride to Urubamba for dinner. We enjoyed our stay here immensely. The breakfast was good, a wide variety that changed daily and it was so relaxing to enjoy a pisco sour at the bar after a day of exploring the ruins. The two alpacas that live at the hotel are friendly and adorable.

Absolutely loved this hotel and spa - just beautiful! From the moment we walked in I didnt know what to look at first! The beautiful stained glass wall of Machu Picchu was amazing! Excellent rooms, amazing grounds (loved all of the flowers!), wonderful staff (loved the girl at the bar, Angel), cool pool, excellent (massive!) breakfast ... could have stayed for much, much longer!

I can add little to the many positive reviews here except to say that it is all true.

So far in my life I have been lucky enough to have traveled to 33 countries and stayed in literally hundreds of hotels for both business and leisure. This is the nicest hotel I have stayed in anywhere, period. The facilities and surroundings in the Sacred Valley are stunning!

The place was a dream, everything was perfect!! The service is excellent, food is great, you can take amazing pictures in the hotel (rooms, bar, restaurants, pools, spa, etc.) Very romantic place to stay too!!! Views are beautiful and location is good too, near Ollantaytambo, Pisac & Urubamba. VERY RECOMMENDED! You should come to Peru and visit all the amazing places we have here!

we stayed with our family for two days. this is a new facility and very modern. the chef and manager were kind enough to change menu to our taste. great service, excellent rooms and in a tranquil environment. only drawback is poor spa services, wish they had better massage therapists and expanded food menu to varied american taste.

My daughter and I just spent two delightful days at the Aranwa. I have traveled extensively as a retired US Foreign Service officer and can say that the Aranwa is among the very best hotels I've experienced in my career. The staff was absolutely wonderful, especially Samy, the barman, who helped us arrange side trips and gave us excellent advice. The grounds of the hotel are breathtaking and the spa was an outstanding experience. We had a huge room in the colonial section, although we would have preferred the "modern" section with more light. The Aranwa is really heaven on earth!
My only reservation: we had booked transport from Cuzco airport and the driver was an hour late. The same happened to another couple that day. The problem is one of communication. The phone number in the website doesn't work and there is no way to contact the hotel. The booking agent in Lima obviously does not check her messages or answer her phone.
Aside from that, I will return to the Aranwa and hope that the hotel does well.
They have spared no expense and treat the guests royally. The place is spectacular.

We spent three nights at this hotel in October, 2009...it was beautiful and amazing and an absolutely great way to start our trip. Spending three nights gave us a good introduction to Peru and the Sacred Valley and let us catch-up with ourselves before beginning our two week journey. It was convenient to the sites and to restaurants...we had to drive down a dirt road and were so surprised and pleased to enter into this beautiful site. Highly recommend!
