“A very special place, in more ways than one!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2011

If you're looking for a very special place to stay in the beautiful Valley of Saints, this is it!
Besides a great stay, a visit to this place is also contributing to an amazing project.
The casitas are very stylish and cosy and for cold nights you'll have your own fireplace. They also serve excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner. So there is no real reason to leave this amazing project, except maybe for visiting the Machu Pichu ;-)

Ninos Arco Iris is an undiscovered jewel in the Sacred Valley. The gardens alone are worth the price of admission. The Dutch founder and creator is a former architect with an eye for style and attention to detail. The bungalows are charming and tasteful with a large bathroom that could easily be found in a fancy American spa. Each room has fresh flowers, a big tub (and a shower!), hot water, patio and a fireplace. The stonework is amazing.
The proceeds from the bungalows benefits the good work of the Dutch foundation which helps the locals with education, healthcare, jobs and hope for a better future. It's great to have the young people nearby, but also separate.
I slept well there and awoke happily to pure natural beauty each day.
It is possible to eat on site with the committed volunteers (highly skilled) who run the hotel. In our case that was Ellen and Lub from Holland. Wonderful people who went out of their way to make sure we had everything we need for our journey.
The food is simple and healthy fare at a reasonable price.
There is no restaurant or menu, it is family style. Again, the attention to detail makes it an occassion. The dining room is warm and welcoming with flowers and candles, a fire in the evening, and a table well set. The staff is courteous and engaging without being overbearing. I hated to leave. Really!

This Dutch Ninos Foundation is not the same one as the Ninos Hotel in Cusco, though after staying at both, and eating at the Dutch restaurant, Tres Mundos in Cusco, I am now on the look out for all things Dutch when traveling.

  • Liked — the setting, gardens, architecture, bathroom, style...great staff, attention to detail
  • Disliked — nothing
  • Stayed October 2007, travelled as a couple
