The Best Boutique Hotels in Aguas Calientes, Peru

Picture of Harry Stewart
Updated: 24 December 2017
With an army of cashed up but time-poor travelers flocking to Machu Picchu each day, it’s no surprise there are a plethora of fine boutique hotels scattered around the nearby hub town of Aguas Calientes. Rates may be a little higher than elsewhere in Peru, but it’s worth paying for a bit of luxury when visiting this world famous attraction. Here are the best boutiques in town.

Give the ramshackle huts of Aguas Calientes a miss altogether and opt to stay at the site of the sacred Machu Picchu instead. Situated just a few minutes’ walk from the great Inca citadel, this is the only hotel allowed to operate in the area which makes it truly unique. Unbeatable location aside, guests rave about their complimentary pisco tasting session, epic mountain views, and the ability to casually stroll down to the monument in the morning well before the hordes of tourists arrive.

Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel

Boutique Hotel, Eco Hotel
add to wishlistsCreated with Sketch.

Considered the finest hotel in Aguas Calientes, elegance and opulence are in abundance at the Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel. Dark wooden awnings and high ceilings give it a luxury lodge kind of vibe, while the onsite spa, jacuzzi, and swimming pools keep guests entertained between excursions. It may be substantially pricier than other options in town, but it’s nice to know some of the profits are donated towards local conservation efforts.

El MaPi Hotel byInkaterra

Boutique Hotel
add to wishlistsCreated with Sketch.

For a sister hotel of the elegant Inkaterra Pueblo, the El MaPi Hotel takes a surprisingly different direction in its design. Each room is notably more contemporary, while the numerous vibrant common areas are the epitome of chic modern design. Despite coming in at around half the cost of the former, it still has all the amenities you would expect from a hotel of such caliber.

Tierra Viva Machu Picchu

Boutique Hotel
add to wishlistsCreated with Sketch.

For a bit of luxury with a reasonable price tag, the modern and stylish Tierra Viva Machu Picchu ticks all the boxes. Each of its 42 rooms is tastefully decorated while an abundance of indigenous artwork can be enjoyed (and purchased) throughout the hotel. The pièce de résistance, however, is a colorful mural that spans the entire five-story central elevator.
