Set among beautiful gardens in the magnificent location of the Sacred Valley, Sol y Luna is a charming and comfortable hotel with wonderfully relaxing amenities. Your bungalow, or ‘casita’, is designed with Andean touches and stylish interiors and boasts gorgeous views of the surrounding landscape. Spend your days exploring the Sacred Valley of the Incas where you can partake in exciting activities such as horse riding, bird watching and para-gliding.
Back at Sol y Luna the indulgent spa, sauna and pool is a peaceful place for you to unwind, while the dining consists of a restaurant, Killa Wasi, where Peruvian and European cuisine is served and a bar, Chicha Wasi, where you can enjoy authentic pisco sours. You can also enjoy traditional Andean cuisine at Wayra, a separate restaurant set in the hotel’s Wayra ranch, paying homage to the wealth of natural ingredients cultivated in the Sacred Valley since the time of the Incas.
The hotel is also recognised for its community initiatives, particularly in education. After 10 years of working with different schools and programs, Sol y Luna opened the Sol y Luna Intercultural School, providing educational services to a number of local students.
Over 200 children educated
Sol y Luna is a family operated hotel that began as an economic venture to fund educational projects for local children in Peru. The Sol y Luna Association, a non-profit organisation, supports the Sol y Luna Intercultural School and four foster homes for students of the highlands communities. Today, Sol y Luna School educates 200 children and houses one of Peru’s few faculties for disabled students. The school follows the Peruvian National Curriculum and also offer specific courses that prepare students for the working world, such as two hours a day of English classes, as well as Quechua and computer courses. Since 2015, they have welcomed young people with special needs. Every day, students in the general education classes interact with the children in the special education programme. This is an enriching experience for all and fosters values of respect, tolerance, and acceptance of difference.
‘Pay what you can’ learning
90% of students pay what they can or study for free, and perhaps in no coincidence, the exam pass rates sit at double the national average. This organisation also provides training and sustainable employment for members of the community.
