Peru’s Sacred Valley of the Incas is now home to the newest Inkaterra organic spa, at the award-winning Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba.

Inspired by the nearby Urubamba river and traditional Andean architecture, the new Mayu Spa features a rustic chic design and showcases the picturesque views of the property’s organic gardens and peppertree forests.

The spa and wellness center features a plunge pool, four private therapy rooms and a dry sauna to provide a spiritual and soothing experience immersed in the evergreen mountains and harvest fields. All treatments use 100 percent natural products derived from native medicinal herbs of the region. All of Inkaterra’s environmentally conscious spas use natural ingredients found locally on the property.

Services include a range of massage therapies, Andean Stone therapy, reflexology and more.
