Call The Spirits
The Belmond Sanctuary Lodge sits at about 8,200 feet above sea level—all the better to try and connect with the sacred spirits that attracted the Incas to the area. At the hotel, you can take part in an ancient, shaman-led ceremony designed to ask Pachamama (Mother Earth) for prosperity and well-being. If you're more concerned with your immediate future, book a session with an Andean priest for a coca tea leaf reading to find out what adventures lie ahead.
