    Belmond sanctuary lodge is the only hotel located adjacent to the ancient citadel of machu picchu and the best point by which to explore the beautiful surrounding area. The lodge is located only 50 meters from the main entrance to the archaeological site. Only the select few who stay at the lodge have access to the ruins both before and after the throngs of tourists arrive and depart from mid-morning to mid-afternoon. The benefit of exploring the ruins when they are relatively empty is not to be underestimated, and a key benefit of staying at the lodge. The magnificent gardens at the lodge boast stunning views across machu picchu and are a popular location for breakfast, as well as champagne at any time. They also offer the perfect location in which to relax during your stay. The gardens are located at the back of the main building, where you can find a great variety of native plants and flowers, including many orchids. Offering luxury accommodation, simply composed peruvian cuisine with delightful little touches, belmond sanctuary lodge is the perfect place to relax and unwind in the shadow of the lost city. Facilities include two restaurants, bar, limited business services, gift shop and internet terminals for guest use. Complimentary high-speed wireless internet service is available in guestrooms and public areas. Rates include breakfast, lunch and dinner or breakfast only in the lodge's restaurant, depending on the rate plan purchased. Concierge, room service and laundry services are available. Accommodations reflect the casual, intimate atmosphere of a home away from home. There are two suites and twenty-nine rooms, twelve of which feature amazing views of the mountains. Amenities available in all rooms and suites include complimentary wireless internet access, high-definition lcd widescreen tv with movie channels, ipod dock, dvd player and lending library, dual 110v-220v voltage, ceiling fan, mini-bar, personal safe, desk, bottled water and windows that open for fresh air.
