Inkaterra unveils its first tailor-made spa in Peru’s Sacred Valley of the Incas
Located in the heart of Peru’s Sacred Valley of the Incas, hacienda-style eco-luxe hotel, Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba, has unveiled the new state-of-the-art ‘Mayu Spa’ (river in Quechua), the first tailor-made spa within the Inkaterra group.
As one of the most celebrated hotels both in Peru and South America, Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba’s newest offering will echo the values of the group, providing a wellness experience which channels the spiritual essence of the Sacred Valley whilst focusing on the sustainability of the local environment.
Nestled in the forestry between the hotel’s organic orchard and an enchanting peppertree forest, the Mayu Spa is surrounded by the lush greenery of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. Much like the colonial-style hotel, the spa interiors have employed local materials to create a rustic-chic design inspired by traditional Andean architecture. The Mayu Spa features a healing garden, an outdoor plunge pool, four private therapy rooms and a dry sauna.
With a dedicated botanical herb garden neighbouring the spa, the new wellness destination truly feasts on its rural surroundings. Celebrating the natural holistic power of the local flora, a list of exclusive treatments utilises ingredients freshly picked from the healing garden.
With the Eucalyptus leaf being native to the mountainous Andean zone, the Mayu Spa’s bespoke aroma is the Eucalyptus essential oil, which boasts antiseptic healing qualities. A wider selection of essential essences is also available for guests to further tailor their wellness experience.
Coupling award-winning hospitality with an environmentally-responsible wellness haven, adventurous travellers are able to rest easy whilst making the most of the mountainous outdoors with day-excursions, knowing they can repose with time spent at the Mayu Spa.
“A stay at Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba is the perfect opportunity for our guests to feel closer to nature,” comments José Koechlin, Founder of Inkaterra. “The opening of the Mayu Spa is a noteworthy development for the property, as it is our first tailor-made spa, offering guests true adventure experiences whilst allowing them to indulge in some authentic pampering and self-care”.
Situated in the Peruvian highlands, Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba is the ideal setting for travellers to explore the breath taking mountainous landscape. The hotel offers a selection of in-house guided excursions included with each booking, to bucket-list destinations such as a lantern-lit Twilight Walk through the Sacred Valley. Additional and external excursions are available at an extra cost. With the recent addition of the Mayu Spa, the boutique hotel is now set to become one of the most resplendent wellness destinations in South America.
