From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:Peruvian chain Aranwa's first hotel is a dreamy Andean wonderland spread over a canal- and lake-filled compound beside the Vilcanota River, far from the clusters of resorts in the Sacred Valley. One hundred spacious rooms are sprinkled about the property in the carefully restored eighteenth-century hacienda, the resort's centerpiece, and several more modern buildings with minimalist decor. When taking a day off from Machu Picchu or valley tours, you'll find loads to do at the Aranwa: Stroll the orchid-filled glass pyramid, browse the art gallery or library, shop for alpaca scarves, soak in the infinity pool, watch a film in the private cinema, or take a treatment in the 25,000-square-foot spa, the region's largest. Personable staff are on hand to give lifts around the property in a fleet of eco-carts, or to entice an alpaca or peacock to pose for a photo op. Locally sourced ingredients are the norm here, and much of the fruit and herbs in the Peruvian Novo Andina restaurant are grown right in the resort's hummingbird-filled gardens. 2010 Hot List
