Let us take the advantage of the duality of the hotel name (Sun & Moon) to talk about this magical lodge.
The sun represents the beauty and adventure: located in the Incas Sacred Valley, Sol y Luna is built on a unique garden, and every morning is an incredible experience. Integrated with nature, the hotel has a rustic architecture, with houses made of stone and adobe, decorated with in all-Peruvian style, culture and folk art.
The moon is also present, bringing the tranquility and relaxation you need. The garden is full of flowers and year long, and tranquility naturally comes from the silence, fresh air and flawless service that takes care of every detail for you to relax. The Spa is also a great option for those who want to keep the body and mind in a Zen state.
Sol y Luna is also involved in a successful social work, maintaining a school with hundreds of children and ensuring their future in such high quality that the school is now considered the best of the entire region!

Another highlight is the history of the hotel: it emerged as a secondary business to support a school for children of the local communities. They have access to quality education and sports without losing their culture.
Ancient Peruvians considered Urumbamba a divine location. The place is spectacular, full of beautiful hills and with a very pleasant climate. The Incas Sacred Valley stretches for over 100 kilometers, from the towns of Pisac to Machu Picchu, and is full of culture and impressive archaeological sites that testify its ancient occupation.
At approximately 2800m height over sea level, flora and fauna are unique in this region. The soil is very fertile, and numerous streams arise from the snowy mountain ranges that surround the valley, creating beautiful waterfalls among the highest native forests in the world. The valley is a corridor of crossbreed villages, communities, archaeological sites and villages of genuine and ancient culture. Access to all of these places is very easy as the hotel lies in the heart of the Valley.
Sol y Luna offers a perfect structure to relax and enjoy the unique Sacred Valley scenery. It will be hard to want to leave the hotel, however, you will have direct access to Wayra space, which provides the most diverse activities to experience the Valley in all its possibilities: gastronomy, outdoor activities amidst nature and archaeological sites.
