 Why We Love this Boutique Cloud Forest Getaway

Machu Picchu is one of the wonders of the world and getting there, may it be by train or by trail,  is not an easy feat. After a full day of viewing the awe inspiring mystic Inca citadel, what better then being welcomed into a world class boutique hotel nestled into the cloud forest.

The cloud forest is a sanctuary to relax and unwind while exploring the surrounding trails, soaking in a massage experience at the UNU Spa or learning about the 372 native orchid species found here.
