Inkaterra is a leading eco and adventure travel company specialising in high-end culture and nature travel experiences to Peru. The Company owns and operates 3 unique hotels; the award-winning 85-room and suite Inkaterra Machu Picchu at the site of one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the Machu Picchu Citadel; the 34-casita and suite Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica, in the rainforest of Southern Peru and a new 11 suite boutique hotel which opened in Cusco in June 08: Inkaterra La Casona.
Inkaterra Machu Picchu is a tranquil fusion of opulent comfort, excellent cuisine, Incan style and construction, a mélange of tropical gardens, plantations, natural beauty, mysticism and conservation - and is home to both the world's largest collection of native orchids visible in their natural habitat, (372 species), and the world's largest concentration of wild hummingbird species (18).
Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica is a gracious rainforest lodge, adjacent to the lush Tambopata National Reserve. Remote and pristine, yet easily accessible, this region is only a 25-minute flight from Cusco. Here, in the area known as the Biodiversity Capital of Peru, guests have the opportunity of discovering an incredible variety of species - bird, mammal, reptile, insect and plant. A welcoming haven situated at the heart of a 12,000 Ha. (29,652-acre) private ecological reserve. The lodge offers a range of land and river excursions that introduce guests to the magic of the rainforest.
Inkaterra La Casona, Cusco's first boutique hotel, reflects the city's mélange of cultures and traditions. Set in a striking 16th century colonial mansion, it is now an exclusive hotel located in the beautiful Plaza de Las Nazarenas, right in the heart of the historical city, one block from the Plaza Mayor (Main Square) and Cusco Cathedral. With just 11 suites the hotel portrays a real feeling of ‘home away from home' and delivers personal service and excellent excursions to the Sacred Valley and beyond.
