Spa of the Week: Spa del Bosque

By Olivia Cuccaro

By Olivia Cuccaro

As if its location in a cloud forest didn’t already sound wonderfully serene, Inkaterra El MaPi hotel has opened an organic spa amidst the natural Peruvian landscape. On the hotel’s top floor, Spa del Bosque offers panoramic views of Machu Picchu and its ancient history.

High above the lush tropical greenery, Spa del Bosque features four private treatment rooms, a pine sauna, hydromassage showers, a heated plunge pool and hydration zone. To truly immerse guests in their Machu Picchu surroundings, the spa only uses 100 percent organic products sourced from local botanical extracts. Select the signature Special MaPi Therapy treatment for three relaxing experiences in one: a cranial massage with ancient Inca techniques, lymphatic draining and a leg treatment. The holistic approach to treatments at the spa leaves guests feeling fully rejuvenated and ready to take in all Peru has to offer, like the hotel’s bird-watching excursion where you’ll get up close with the region’s incredible wildlife.

After your spa treatment, unwind in the eucalyptus-adorned lobby of El MaPi, tucked into a hillside near the storied ruins. Just steps away from the museum and the historical reserve, the hotel sits on the Urubamba River, 70 miles from bustling Cusco. Sip on a traditional pisco sour (a Peruvian brandy cocktail) at El Bar after your archaeological expedition, then retreat to your suite with king-size bed, walk-in closet, minibar and living room with sofa. Get a good night’s sleep as tomorrow it’s a hike to the summit of Apu Machu Picchu mountain for breathtaking views of the ruins and the river – then maybe back to the spa for some deep tissue therapy.

El MaPi Hotel by Inkaterra Is located at Pachacutec 109, Cusco, Peru. For more information on the hotel and spa, please visit
