Starwood Adds Peruvian Hotels to Its Luxury Collection
When you think Machu Picchu, you probably don't think luxury—but Starwood is hoping to change that, with the addition of a new hotel to its Luxury Collection. The newly opened Tambo del Inka is just 50 minutes from Cusco, making it a great base from which to explore the Sacred Valley. (Dude, there's a spa. Perhaps now we may finally get into this thing called "hiking.")
Starwood are partnering with Libertador Hotels, Resorts & Spas on Tambo del Inka, which has 128 rooms and suites, all with views of the Andes and Vilcanota river.
The new property joins its cousin in the Luxury Collection portfolio, Hotel Paracas, which is located on Peru's Pacific coast and has a hot pool scene for Lima's well-to-do, according to our friends at Condé Nast Traveler, where it made the 2010 Hot List.
A third hotel in Peru—the Palacio Del Inka in Cusco—will join the Luxury Collection in June 2011.
Rooms at Tambo del Inka start at USD$390 a night this week. Gusto required to hike Machu Picchu not included.
