The Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel occupies a private five-hectare (12-acre) mountainside reserve, located at the foot of Machu Picchu Mountain, near the Machu Picchu Pueblo railroad station. With the look and feel of a rustic Andean Village, the spectacular grounds are laced with paths that wind past waterfalls and gardens; trails wander through wild forest. Skilled artisans built the 81-room boutique hotel, using stone, adobe, stucco, and eucalyptus beams to create a lovely Andean Village ambience.
Travelers follow stone pathways to their rooms, located in comfortable one or two story whitewashed cottages. Andean artifacts and textiles decorate the bar, boutique, and reception building; the dining room displays scores of pre-Columbian relics. Charming features abound; among them are an inviting reading room, a lounge with crackling fireplaces, and the Andean sauna - an igloo made from indigenous bamboo and fresh eucalyptus leaves.
The hotel grounds include more than 5 km. (3.12 miles) of ecological trails, and several spots of observation and contemplation of flora (including 372 native orchid species in their natural habitat), birds (214 species), and butterflies (111 species).
