A Mystical Andean Experience with The UNU Spa at Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel

The recent Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards 2012 saw another great award for Inkaterra. Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel has been placed in the top 5 Best Spas in the South and Central America region. The UNU Spa combines both the classic nurturing of a luxury Spa with a mystical Andean approach. All products that are used throughout the Spa are 100% natural, derived from local botanical extracts, providing a pleasing spiritual, sensual and soothing experience.

Few places in the world are as spiritually stimulating or as whole as those found at the centre of the Incas; Machu Picchu. A strenuous few days hiking the Inca Trail will stretch your mind and body to its limits. The UNU Spa is a welcome retreat for tired souls. Soothe your feet after a long hike with a treatment of natural mint and mountain lemon, or relax under candlelit in the Andean Sauna. The Sauna is a particular highlight, and quite a favourite amongst guests. Inspired by a variety of luxury spas, Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel has created a perfect Andean experience, where stones from the local rivers are heated in a candle-lit eucalyptus hut to produce steam.

And why not indulge in a luxury face massage while you’re here? The Andean gemstone formulae is believed to help one retrieve ancient wisdom. And after pondering the mysteries of the Ancient Incas, meandering through the forest gardens spotting birds and rare orchids, and relaxing in the steam huts at the UNU Spa, you will no doubt return from your trip with more wisdom than you left with.
