SOL Y LUNA
History & Story
Our first clients told us they were left yearning for more when they discovered the Sacred Valley. The idea of accommodating our visitors in individual little houses, all surrounded by gardens with doors facing the mountains, was a key factor that distinguished us from other traditional hotels from the beginning in September 2000’s.
Little houses built with adobe, wood and handcrafted tiles, in harmony with the surrounding landscapes. Their interiors were designed to spoil our guests with warm, cozy rooms. Our terraces invited the contemplation of our green garden full of flowers, and home to more than 35 species of local birds.
The evolution of Sol y Luna led us to express our concept of luxury through exclusivity, authenticity, beauty and art, and to the creation of our Luxury Suites –Casitas de Lujo – rated as the most surprising, pleasant and sophisticated in Peru. Each Casita features an original mural creatively representing the flora and fauna of the Sacred Valley.
