La Quinta Eco Hotel
The La Quinta Eco Hotel is an ecological paradise in the heart of the Sacred Valley. Here, luxury has a social and environmental conscience, where owner Edwin manages an organic farm, uses solar water heaters and is dedicated to giving back to local people in need. All of the facilities are beautifully designed and maintained, giving you ample opportunity to relax and unwind amidst gorgeous natural surroundings.
Each guest room has a balcony with stunning mountain views, a private bathroom, mineral water and facilities for making your own coffee, herbal teas or other hot drinks. Other in-room amenities include cable TV, a telephone, Wi-Fi, alarm clock, electronic safety deposit box, hair dryer, closet, and table and chairs. DVD players and other items are available for rent.

The hotel provides its guests with a full range of excellent facilities, including a children's pool and a roofed adult pool. There is a game room and leisure area, a gym, sauna, massage and geotherapy parlor, camping area with grills, as well as an organic farm which supplies the on-site restaurant with fresh fruit and vegetables.
Guests can take a stroll through the gardens and learn what each medicinal plant is used for. The hotel also has a fully-equipped convention center, rents out its facilities for special social events or conferences, and puts on traditional dance performances and Inca ceremonies. A shared computer is provided in the lobby and ample parking is available.
However, one of the best reasons to stay here is the kindness and impressive breadth of knowledge of the owner himself. He speaks English, Spanish and Quechua and is more than willing and able to provide guests with whatever it is they might need or want. Bicycles are offered for rent and the staff can organize rituals held by Andean priests or outings to nearby attractions.
The hotel is located in the town of Urubamba, which conveniently lies in the center of the Sacred Valley with easy access to Pisac, Ollantaytambo and other valley destinations.

The hotel's restaurant serves delicious Peruvian and international cuisine prepared with fresh ingredients harvested daily from their organic farm.
