The Samaq Machu Picchu Hotel is set in a modern mountain-lodge style building overlooking the Vilcanota River and just a 30-minute drive from the unique and mysterious site of ancient Machu Picchu, built by the Incas in the 15th century. Spectacular cliffs rise to the rear of the hotel which is surrounded by virgin forest and just on the edge of the modern town of Aguas Calientes. The hotel provides a bus service to take you up the mountain to the fascinating Machu Picchu World Heritage site, still shrouded in historic puzzles since even today the precise purpose of this romantic mountain-top structure is unknown.
Machu Picchu is one of the most enigmatic destinations in the world with its spectacular buildings hewn from rock and constructed without mortar. This air of mystery lends these picturesque mountains an outstandingly romantic ambience and if you're looking for a romantic break, this is a fantastic choice.
