While travel trends keep changing, sustainability has remained a common one among travelers, destinations and hotels. A resort in Peru takes sustainability to the next level with a new eco-friendly resort, Las Qolqas.

 

Situated in the ancient Andean town of Ollantaytambo, between Cusco and Machu Picchu, the resort is a sustainable haven for exploration and self-discovery. Founders Herman van den Wall Bake and Carlos Gonzalez created this peaceful resort to show their commitment to preserve the environment, local community and culture. With different programming, accommodations and more, here are a couple reasons Las Qolqas should be on your radar.

 

The resort features a greenhouse, with locally grown, organic ingredients used for special Peruvian dishes at restaurant Pututu. Guests can get an up-close look at the stunning scenery surrounding them as they choose from the chef’s daily special menu, with dishes representing a modern and elevated twist on traditional Peruvian cuisine.

 

Kick back and relax at the resort spa. Guests can choose from a variety of treatments featuring products made on site with local ingredients. Whether looking for a hot stone treatment or a facial, there is something there for you. Guests can also take advantage of the outdoor showers, sauna and the large rustic hot tub that overlooks the river running through the property.

 

Guests can also explore the neighboring community with local expert guides. Hike any of the ancient Inca trials or take advantage of the optional guided walks with locals to get a glimpse into the natural history from the locals’ perspective. You can also book experiences like horseback riding, rafting and more.
