Hotel Sol y Luna

Located 57 kilometers (40 miles) from Cusco and nestled in the middle of the Urumbamba Valley, the Hotel Sol y Luna combines comfort, artistry, and excellent service with a rustic Andean ambience. Surrounded by a landscape of whispering eucalyptus, blooming gardens, and the majestic mountains of the Andes, the hotel has round standard casitas (recently refurnished) and several deluxe and premium suites decorated with murals by local artist Federico Bauer. Suites also feature flat screen TVs, heated flooring, cozy fireplaces, and preloaded iPods complete with docking stations. Premium suites are split into three separate rooms (bedroom, living room, entrance hall) and have large terraces with private Jacuzzi tubs. Standard round casitas, the accommodation type included in our itineraries featured online, boast tastefully appointed interior, private bathroom and shower, king-sized beds, and a private terrace but do not have televisions or fireplaces. For more space and comfort, consider upgrading to one of the Suite categories. Sol y Luna also features a full-service spa, swimming pool and bbq area, a stable of Peruvian Paso horses available for riding upon request and an exceptional restaurant with the welcoming warmth of an open fireplace, featuring typical Peruvian dishes as well as international plates. Culinary minded travelers will want to reserve a spot at the Chef's Table and join the chef in his kitchen for a hands-on cooking lesson followed by lunch or dinner.
