Tambo del Inka, A Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Valle Sagrado
Ranked #3 of 29 Hotels in Urubamba

Reviewed 30 April 2011

Probably one of the best if not the best hotel I have enjoyed. 
Firstly the architecture, design, materials and attention to detail of the property are flawless. 
Situated on the river bank, surrounded by eucalyptus trees, with the stunning background of the mountains beyond, the buildings use wood and stone to blend perfectly with the environment, and the interior public spaces echo the canopy of a forest.
Rooms are really spacious with a wonderfully decadent walk in closet with plenty of space and hangers for clothes. The bathroom is well designed with glass partitions separating the bath/shower wet room from the loo. 
These days it sometimes hard to be 'wowed' but a hotel room but the Tambo del Inka really makes you feel you are somewhere special - we didn't want to leave!
Food was superb - even classic western-style snacks like a club sandwich tasted amongst the best I've enjoyed, and service is highly professional and responsive without being overly attentive. 
It's a luxurious oasis amongst the drama and energy-sapping high altitude Andes. 
Can't really fault the place. It's relative new, so when we were there occupancy was low, so the public spaces lacked ambiance but it was a luxury to have the place to ourselves.

I would like to reinforce what the previous reviewers have mentioned. This is one of the best luxurious accommodation in sacred valley and a perfect base to explore the sacred valley as well as acclimatize before venturing to the higher altitude (Cusco, Colca or Puno). A very good restaurant if you want alternative Peruvian cuisine is located 400m outside the main gates ( turn left at gates) of the resort 3 Keros
Gourmet. The door maybe close but give a yell as the owner/ chef maybe busy watching a soccer match on TV.

The Tambo Del Inka is a brand new (2010) resort property that is a part of the Starwood group/Luxury Collection. It is designed and outfitted at the very highest level. The style is refined and respectful of it's surroundings. The spa is outstanding. The restaurant is well executed and has excellent sensibilities. Their incorporation of local ingredients and home grown products is especially nice. The train to Machu Picchu literally departs from their compound.

Though outstanding in nearly every way, to be helpful I will highlight a few areas of improvement:

1) bathroom products don't live up to amazing bathroom design. G&S screams Hilton garden Inn;

2) Amazing and beautifully designed spa. However, the pool actually seems small and the jacuzzi is only accessible thru the LADIES locker room(!);

3) A library would be a welcome addition to the property and could be filled with books on Peru and history;

4). Hotel doesn't sell a single souvenir. (or stamps or postcards) While sort of refreshing, it was sad I couldn't take home a Tambo Del Inka coffee mug to brag at the office about this amazing resort!

Suggestions for future guests:

Request a third floor room with a mountain view..best by far. Sunday market in Urubamba is terrific and unspoiled. Eat at both good restaurants nearby. Taxi from Cusco takes 90 mins, plan accordingly. 90 Soles is the non inflated price.

We stayed here for two nights after our exhausting 4-day Inka Trail Hike. This place was indeed a heaven!
As soon as we arrived at the property, we were greeted by friendly staff who immediately carried our bags into the lobby.
Room: My SPG platinum, got us upgraded to a beautiful 1 bedroom patio suite overlooking the water fountains. The rooms were modern yet beautifully adorned with Inca decor.
Spa: We had a couples massage. The masseuse were attentive and very friendly. The 'hydrotherapy treatment pool' was one of the highlights in the hotel. -A must try!
The indoor/outdoor pool was beuatiful, but we didn't use it as we were having too much fun in the treatment pool!
Location: Walkable to Urubamba town. Quiet, beautiful surroundings
On the last day, we had to leave Tambo at 5AM to arrive to Cusco for a bus tour at 7AM. The car transfer I reserved canceled on me at the last minute. Luckily, Jesus (front desk) made few calls and was able to get us a car transfer back to Cusco in time! What a relief!
Overall, all staff were very amazing- very attentive and courteous, A special thanks to:
Jesus, front desk - for being so efficient at handling last minute emergencies.
Maria Ximena, chief concierge - for contacting me prior our arrival in making our stay at Tambo so amazning and memorable.

Tambo del Inka is a gem in the Sacred Valley. We just got back from our trip and had a wonderful stay. From the moment we arrived to the second we left we were treated like royalty. We went in April, which is their slow season, and felt like we had the hotel to ourselves, even though there were other guests while we were there.

The rooms are outstanding. We were on the bottom floor and loved our walkout. The staff was warm and offered their help whenever we needed. They even volunteered to run to a local pharmacy for us one evening to get some aloe after we mistakenly hadn't applied sunscreen. The concierge was fabulous and arranged a personal driver for our entire trip.

The hotel is in the perfect location. It's in the heart of the beautiful Sacred Valley, it's probably the nicest hotel within a short train ride to Machu Picchu, it's close to good touring places including Pisac, Chinchero, Ollantaytambo and it's a lower altitude than Cusco so makes for an easier acclimation.

We couldn't imagine finding a nicer place to stay on a trip to visit Machu Picchu. The only thing we'd remind people of who are chosing to explore on your own - you must buy tickets to Machu Picchu at Agua Caliente before you take the bus ride up to Machu Picchu, just a little mistake on our part.

Enjoy!

From the moment you arrive to when you leave the staff of this hotel provide visitors with top notch service in a friendly manner. The inside and outside of this property are in pristine condition. The staff takes pride in their work and goes out of their way to make guests feel comfortable.
Here are some highlights:
* Knowledgeable concierge service helps coordinate your stay prior to arrival (~$80 car service from Cusco; ride is ~ 1hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes and is picturesque)
* On site "Tikariy" tour service arranges Machu Picchu visits and other adventures (reserve prior to arrival - work with concierge)
* Hotel has its own train station for Machu Picchu (although late afternoon arrivals back to Urubamba will need to take a ~$7 cab ride back from a nearby town (Ollantaytambo)...bring a flashlight and have directions to the town [~10 minute walk from train station] or coordinate a car service with the hotel])
* ~25m indoor/outdoor pool with an amazing spa facility that far exceeds the best in NYC area. Fitness center keeps you busy for a 30 - 60 minute workout. Lockers have steam and sauna rooms
* Great food and drinks (a little pricey when compared to other options in town; but is more convenient). Small game room has a pool table. Complimentary teas available throughout the day in the lobby
* ATM and business center with free internet. Complimentary shoe shines
* Situated in a small, but interesting and safe town (not the "night life" of Cusco, but you are closer to Machu Picchu) . It is safe to walk around at night and the only question that we were asked is if we wanted a taxi (mopeds). The people are reserved, but friendly. The market in the town is very unique

We just returned from the most indulgent hotel experience ever at Tambo Del Inka. The facility was gorgeous – inside and out. The interior was beautifully decorated and the outside provided peaceful mountain and river views. The pool was an experience! It spanned indoors and outdoors, with serene sounds and sights. The staff was as attentive and helpful as I’ve ever experienced – concierge staff arranged expeditions, both before we arrived and during our stay. A great experience all around!
