The impact of your stay:

  • Recognised as the world’s first Climate Positive hotel brand by Green Initiative, endorsed by the United Nations, Inkaterra collaborated with AJE Group, Machu Picchu Town Hall, and the National Park Service to make Machu Picchu the first carbon-neutral international destination. This commitment aims to cut carbon emissions by 45% by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, aligning with the United Nations Paris Agreement goals.
  • Funded by tourism, the hotel actively restores a 4-hectare area damaged by livestock, nurturing native flora and encouraging the return of fauna. Partnering with Cornell University, the hotel monitors bird inventories, recording 294 species, including the Andean cock-of-the-rock, Andean motmot, Golden-headed quetzal, and 18 hummingbird species. Additionally, they’ve identified 372 orchid species, discovering 26 new orchid species previously unknown to science.
  • Through their non-profit Inkaterra Association, the hotel conducts practical conservation workshops for school children. These engaging sessions, blending knowledge with fun through games, exhibitions, crafts, and experiments, serve as a crucial tool to raise environmental awareness among children. The aim is to foster their role as environmental ambassadors within their homes.

Places to combine Inkaterra Machu Picchu with

Lake Titicaca

Titilaka
Located on a private peninsula that juts out onto the fabled waters of Lake Titicaca, Titilaka is designed to allow guests to fully experience this magical and deeply historical place. There are just 18 rooms spread over three floors, all boasting views out across the tranquil waters. Dawn rooms face east and catch the sun as it rises – an integrated bathroom means you can watch the sky light up while soaking in your oversized bath tub. Dusk rooms face west and from here you can catch the sun as it sinks behind the horizon at the end of the day. The corner suites are the largest and are located on the third floor, with double windows for incredible views. The design is clean and contemporary with local textiles and fresh flowers to add colour and character. There is plenty of space to relax with three lounges, a reading room with books, games and DVDs, as well as wraparound terraces, overwater decks abd boardwalks to really connect you to the lake itself. There is a small jetty at the end of the peninsula where boats depart from to explore the lake and its islands, and there are kayaks, row boats and bicycles available too. The lodge offers full-day, half-day or short activities – all of which are included in your stay – simply let them know on arrival what you would like to do each day. Food at Titilaka is simple and wholseome and uses local produce such as lake trout and Andean spices. You can choose to dine in the restaurant or enjoy your meal outside, enjoying the views and the breeze from the lake. There is also a massage room should you wish to indulge.
