Embedded between mountains, meadows and trees, you can find the beautiful Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba at the heart of the Urubamba valley. A visit at the colonial inspired hotel is worth it to experience Peru’s authentic side. At the Sacred valley of the Inkas, incredible Inka sites, picturesque landscapes and typical Peruvian valleys wait to be discovered. The Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba is inspired by the local architecture and designed with regional materials. From the cozy rooms, you will get a wonderful view into nature. Inkaterra puts emphasis on the cultural, social and ecological values, the CO2 neutral hotel Hacienda Urubamba focuses on the protection of the surrounding eco systems and maintenance of the local culture. Those sustainable values make Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba the perfect place to get to know old Peruvian traditions as well as the history, nature and charme of the Sacred Valley in an authentic way.
The convenient location enables diverse activities at the valley and in the surrounding. In the low season October, the weather might not be as reliable, however the great advantage is: it is less crowded. A hike on the less crowded Inka Trail to Machu Picchu is an once in a lifetime experience. The low season also makes a visit at the vivid city Cusco a special authentic experience.

November: CGH Earth Marari Beach

November rings in the dry period at the Southern India, hence it is a great travel month to experience the magic at Marari Beach Resort in Kochi, Kerala. The resort is inspired by the life of local fishermen. The characteristics of the local valley find their way into architecture and design of the 3 star resort. Marari Beach is a place for complete relaxation and idleness. Instead of watching TV (you will not find any at your room!) or visiting a beach party, you will experience the joy of being united with nature. Take a little hike through the Indian nature to discover the wild flora and fauna and watch the waves at an almost empty beach? Just leave the to do list at home and enjoy the freedom. And everything with the good conscience to give something back to nature, because Marari Beach supports sustainable tourism by taking care of initiatives like energy-efficient architecture, regional food, bio gas plant and water saving measurements.
