Hotel Rio Sagrado
Perhaps surprisingly this was our favourite hotel out of the orient express portfolio. While when planning this trip we hadn’t immediately thought of staying in the sacred valley we were very glad that we did and very glad that we stayed at this lovely hotel. We felt it was a shame that we only had two nights here and would very much recommend staying a bit longer. The hotel rooms themselves are lovely overlooking gardens Down to the river and the hills beyond. Large ceiling to floor Glass Doors give an excellent view and it made a nice change for there to be no TV in the rooms.
When we arrived in the evening – there was wonderful hot-water bottle in the bed in a ‘lamb’ alpaca cover – needless to say it work and we purchased two!
The restaurant and the restaurant staff were absolutely excellent and this Hotel provided some of the best food we had on our trip. It reminded us slightly of a Japanese Ryokan we had stayed in some years previously when the focus was on the relaxation and rest.
The gardens were very well-kept with a large display of flowers and bushes, the alpaca in the grounds were particularly cute. From this location one of us enjoyed some horse riding and we visited a number of small market towns and had a very good lunch in a hacienda.
