Newest addition to Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba; the Mayu Spa

The most recent addition to Inkaterra’s spa collection is Mayu Spa (‘River’ in Quechua). With a rustic chic design inspired by traditional Andean architecture, Mayu Spa features relaxing views of the surroundings as it is found on a foothill in-between Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba’s organic orchard and an enchanting peppertree forest.

With treatments based in 100% natural products derived from native medicinal herbs, the new wellness center has a pool, four private therapy rooms and a dry sauna – a spiritual and soothing experience amid the Sacred Valley’s evergreen mountains and harvest fields

Nestled between historic Cusco and the impressive Machu Picchu, surrounded by breathtaking mountains in the Sacred Valley of the Incas, you will find Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba. The contemporary hacienda-style boutique hotel provides guests with a stay in the Andes like no other. The newest addition to Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba’s unique property is the Mayu Spa, meaning ‘River’ in Quechua.

While you look across the undisturbed foothill between our organic orchard and the vibrant Peppertree forest you can find the Mayu Spa; the wellness centre creates a truly peaceful area with rooms and casitas inspired by traditional Andean architecture. In a location with open space and inspiring views, Mayu Spa is the perfect place to go off the grid and relax after hiking Challa Huasi or spending a moment at the Chicha house, making your own Chicha de Jora.

With stunning scenery and a plentiful botanical garden neighbouring the tranquil spa, you will discover the ingredients used throughout each treatment are 100% natural, with most growing just outside your room.

Take your pick of a variety of specially designed treatments reflecting the natural surroundings, from a rhythmic Andean hot stone massage, using stones from the nearby Urubamba river, to the ancient practice of reflexology. The luxury doesn’t stop there, take a dip in the outdoor plunge pool to revive yourself after a calming dry sauna session. Enjoy a truly holistic day at our Mayu Spa – the most relaxing way to start or finish your Peruvian adventure.
