Now you exercise a little more discretion in your lodging (and beverage) choices, but you miss the adventure that comes with sleeping in a room full of strangers in Amsterdam.

The Sacred Valley, Peru

Large arrow left

The route to Machu Picchu has gotten smoother, thanks to two hotels outside Cuzco. Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel and Wellness resort is built on a 17th century hacienda and has one of Peru’s largest spas. Treatments feature coca leaves and camu camu, a fruit from the Amazon. To prepare for a trek, check into the Hotel Rio Sagrado and book an altitude acclimatizer massage at Spa Mayu Wilka.
