Sol y Luna
Quite unexpectedly, at the end of a narrow lane on the outskirts of Urubamba you will find the luxurious accommodation Sol y Luna, member of Relais & Châteaux. When you enter through the gates you step into the world of Petit Miribel, enthusiastic owner of this beautiful location. A hospitable welcome, an enormous blooming garden and luxurious ‘casitas’.
The colours of the boutique resort are beautiful: the blue of the sky, the red of the earth and the rich colour spectrum of the exuberant floral splendour can be found everywhere. The architecture is a mix of avant-garde and traditional Peru. The clay walls, rustic stones and wooden beams form a background for both contemporary and traditional Peruvian art.
The hotel has a delightful swimming pool in the middle of the garden. Here you can relax on comfortable lounge beds while butterflies and hummingbirds dance around you. In the intimate spa, you can relax even more after a day of exploring the Sacred Valley.
The resort has 2 restaurants, the more formal Killa Wasi and the more basic Wayra. Both restaurants serve fine Peruvian cuisine. At Killa Wasi you will find ceviches, steaks, guinea pigs and experimental dishes on the menu. Wayra offers honest main dishes such as burgers, pasta and sandwiches for lunch. During lunch at Wayra we also enjoyed a show with Peruvian Paso horses. These horses are cared for in Sol y Luna’s home stables.
Your luxury room is located in a casita, your private sanctuary with an outside terrace which offers splendid views of the beautiful garden and the mountain range around the Valley. There are 43 casitas in three categories, Superior, Deluxe and Premium. All have terracotta tile floors, Peruvian textiles, Spanish colonial style furniture, a firm king-size twin bed made with goose feather duvets and top-quality Peruvian cotton sheets, a spacious bathroom with a deep bad.
Sol y Luna Association
Petit Miribel and her husband Franz left their successful business life to support the children of the Sacred Valley. In 1999 they started an educational project for local children that has evolved into the Sol y Luna Intercultural School. To support these educational initiatives, Petit and her husband built the beautiful boutique hotel Sol y Luna – a ground-breaking sustainable tourism project. The Sol y Luna foundation strives for equality through education for children in the area, and the creation of sustainable jobs for local families.
With your stay you support these valuable initiatives.Back to overview
