Spiritual spa opens in Peru’s Sacred Valley of the Incas
POSTED 11 Oct 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
Peru’s Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba in the Sacred Valley of the Incas has opened a new spa with a rustic design that has been inspired by traditional Andean architecture.

The Mayu Spa – which translates to ‘River’ in Quechua – features views of the surroundings, and is located on a foothill between the resort’s organic orchard and a peppertree forest.

Treatments are based on 100 per cent natural products derived from medicinal herbs, and the wellness centre includes a plunge pool, four private therapy rooms and a dry sauna.

It aims to be a spiritual and soothing escape for guests amid the Sacred Valley’s evergreens and harvest fields.

Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba is a contemporary hacienda-style hotel located between Cusco and Machu Picchu, which spans approximately 100 acres surrounded by imposing green mountains.

All rooms in the Casa Hacienda and stand-alone luxury casitas feature views of the valley, immersing guests in open space, serenity and relaxing solitude. Architecture and interiors are inspired on the area’s cultural history, with colonial furniture, authentic Inca masks and handcrafted woodwork.

An Earth to Table concept is operated with a 10-acre organic plantation, where guests are welcome to pick their own produce. Carbon-free crops such as quinoa, Urubamba giant corn, medicinal herbs and a variety of potatoes are farmed with traditional hand tools and oxen, as done centuries ago.
