It was a jaw-dropping experience to walk through the entry gate and look out onto the Urubamba River, what a surprise! The natural beauty of the property is breathtaking, filled with an assortment of colorful flowers and fragrant flowering trees. In the opposite direction from the river, there was a view of a snow capped mountain. We originally planned to stay just one night before heading off to Machu Picchu but changed our itinerary so we could spend and additional 2 nights at the property before leaving the Sacred Valley. It was a magical place to spend my 60th birthday. I loved the restaurant. The servers were most attentive and informative, and the Peruvian cuisine superb! I mentioned that I was on a gluten-free diet and at each meal I was presented with delicious, freshly baked items made from corn or quinoa. I was even surprised with a yummy gluten-free birthday dessert/cake! Our Jr. Suites were lovely, plenty of room with private gardens looking out towards the river, where we spotted an emerald green swallow-tailed hummingbird feeding off the fuchsias. The room was decorated with exquisite handcrafts in an elegant, understated manner. We loved the rain shower in the bathroom with a clear glass roof in the shower area enabling one to look out toward the mountain, bringing the outside indoors. A trip to the spa for a hot stone massage was certainly the best way to end a day of hiking. Our stay at Rio Sagrado was a feast for the senses, absolutely our favorite hotel!
