Once a rustic, state-run establishment, the 31-room Sanctuary Lodge was leased by Orient-Express in 1999 and transformed into a luxury eco-resort where organic Andean dishes are served on fine china and high tea is taken in native gardens. But tangible luxuries are secondary here: As the lone hotel permitted to operate alongside Machu Picchu, the Sanctuary Lodge lets you roll out of bed and beat the crowds to the ruins. For a taste of what awaits, request a room with a view of Huayna Picchu (the tallest local peak in any given shot of Machu Picchu)—though the jungle and garden outlooks are lovely, too. Quarters are admittedly close; the government architects had an obvious antisprawl mandate. So the simple interiors—all light linens and dark woods—work well. Reserve a year in advance if you're traveling during the dry season (April through October), and six months in advance the rest of the year.—Abbie Kozolchyk
