New Machu Picchu hotel

Article content

15 July 2010

The new ‘ByInkaterra’ brand from Inkaterra, a renowned provider of luxury, sustainable accommodation, has been designed to cater to travelers seeking exceptional value.

The first hotel to launch under the ‘ByInkaterra’ banner is the El Mapi Hotel, located in Machu Picchu pueblo (Aguas Calientes), aims to fill the gap in accommodations at the gateway to the Machu Picchu Historical Sanctuary.

President and CEO of Inkaterra, Jose Koechlin, said: "We are pleased to be offering an alternative level of service to travelers without sacrificing our high standards in hospitality."

"We hope this is the first in our new brand that caters to the economy-conscious traveler."

With just 48 rooms (40 Superior and 8 Superior Deluxe), El MaPi’s amenities include cozy duvets, robes, natural essence toiletries and a turndown service with seasonal fruit.

DirecTV, phones and reading lights feature in every room and train station transfers, luggage storage and Wi-Fi are all added to simplify and enrich travelers’ Machu Picchu experience.

The smart, informal design comes from renowned Peruvian designer Jordi Puig, inspired by a blend of classic, restored and recycled materials combined with modern features.

Inkaterra currently operates Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, named by Travel+Leisure magazine as one of the "Top 100 Hotels in the World" for 2008; Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica, located on the Madre de Dios River; and Inkaterra La Casona, a newly opened 11-suite boutique hotel in the historic city of Cusco.

Meanwhile the company has restored five hectares of cloud forest at the Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel; created a rescue centre for Andean or Spectacled Bears and, as part of an ongoing project, protects 17,000 hectares of primary Amazon rainforest in the area of the Inkaterra Reserva Amazónica lodge.
