Posada del Inca Yucay

Cusco & the Andes

Rating: Mid-range    

Posada del Inca Yucay overview

Situated in a 300-year-old ex-Franciscan monastery surrounded by lush gardens and a beautiful chapel, Sonesta Posadas del Inca Yucay is a colonial style hotel in the middle of Sacred Valley, one hour away from Machu Picchu. The hotel has a peaceful feeling to it and offers a nice contrast to the hustle and bustle of Cusco. Enjoying a splendid breakfast while sitting on the terrace taking in the lovely views of the gardens and beyond is a wonderful way to start your day.

There are 88 rooms and two restaurants offering indoor and outdoor dining, with one featuring Peruvian cuisine and the other a trattoria with pasta and wood-fired pizzas. There's also a charming coffee shop and a cocktail bar with live music and craft beers. The hotel also features a gift shop and craft market.

Posadas del Inca Yucay provides an ideal base to explore Machu Picchu, Pisac, Ollantaytambo, Chinchero and Maras. It is also very close to the AwanaKancha Textile Exhibition Centre, where visitors can view weaving demonstrations, meet (and feed) the alpacas, llamas and vicunas and buy some of the lovely handicrafts.
