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 as ‘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.
