Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Located an hour from Cusco in the Incas' Sacred Valley, built on the banks of the Vilcanota River and enclosed by the breathtaking Urubamba mountain range.

Rooms at Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness

The guestrooms and suites, spread around the verdant garden grounds but anchored by the main building, are decorated in colonial styles with splashes of modern minimalist décor - they are adorned with historic Peruvian artwork, dark wooden furniture and impressively large beds with unique headboards. The lavish, award-winning suites boast unprecedented extravagance, with the separate dining and living spaces dominated by soothing fireplaces, private pianos, secluded terraces with a private pool and spa-inspired bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs.

Food and facilities

Expect locally sourced ingredients with much of the fruit and herbs grown right in the resort’s hummingbird-clouded gardens. At Restaurant Gourmet Pukawi, you can satisfy your hunger pangs with rich dishes of pasta, protein and fish, or you can taste a bit of everything in the tapas and sushi bar, Kusi Pisco Bar & Sushi Bar, with a traditional cocktail to wash it down. For views of the chapel and surrounding mountains, consider the casual Restaurant Rikhuna but if you have a serious craving for a fresh and warm pizza, nestled into the Colonial Kitchen of the Casona- Museum and wait as the pizzas are prepared in the historical kitchen using 17th, 18th and 19th century utensils and then cooked in the huge clay over.

Activities at Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness

The remoteness of the hotel makes Aranwa an idyllic spot to relax and enjoy some downtime, where you can walk through the orchid-filled gardens, browse the art gallery and library, shop for alpaca scarves, watch a film in the private cinema or lounge by the infinity pool. However, the hotel has also been designed to celebrate Peru’s culture and landscapes, so once you’ve rested head out to explore the archaeological complex, Pisac with its large agricultural terraces divided into rectangular tiers.
