Reviewed 8 July 2012

We stayed for a few days in November 2011 prior to the Inca Trail. We had a wonderful time exploring the sacred valley. The rooms were beautiful, very big and spacious with a log fire for cooler nights. The grounds are immaculate and the staff are so lovely. A percentage of the room rate goes towards the upkeep of the school next door. We wished we had booked to stay after the Inca Trail as it would have been a lovely place to relax!

We stayed for a week in February 2012. The hotel is a short distance outside the town of Urubamba, set in its own beautiful grounds, and is an ideal base for visiting the Sacred Valley. The lodge was spacious and spotlessly clean, with a large bathroom (including not only a shower, but also a bath!) with ample hot water. A log fire at night! The food was excellent, and the cook will prepare anything you ask for. The staff were attentive and helpful in suggesting places to go for walks and using local transport. One of the main benefits of staying here is that all profits are channelled into the programme of social help for the local community which is run on the site, providing educational and medical facilities for those in need.
We warmly recommend the hotel.

We stayed there for the 3rd time. An amazing place to be and a very good place to see all kind of beautiful places in the neighbourhood like Macchu Picchu, Pisac, Maras Moray, Ollantaymboo, Cusco.
The food is excellent and the service excellent. The guesthouses are the most beautiful houses I have seen. It is place of love!

If you're looking for a very special place to stay in the beautiful Valley of Saints, this is it!
Besides a great stay, a visit to this place is also contributing to an amazing project.
The casitas are very stylish and cosy and for cold nights you'll have your own fireplace. They also serve excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner. So there is no real reason to leave this amazing project, except maybe for visiting the Machu Pichu ;-)

Ninos Arco Iris is an undiscovered jewel in the Sacred Valley. The gardens alone are worth the price of admission. The Dutch founder and creator is a former architect with an eye for style and attention to detail. The bungalows are charming and tasteful with a large bathroom that could easily be found in a fancy American spa. Each room has fresh flowers, a big tub (and a shower!), hot water, patio and a fireplace. The stonework is amazing.
The proceeds from the bungalows benefits the good work of the Dutch foundation which helps the locals with education, healthcare, jobs and hope for a better future. It's great to have the young people nearby, but also separate.
I slept well there and awoke happily to pure natural beauty each day.
It is possible to eat on site with the committed volunteers (highly skilled) who run the hotel. In our case that was Ellen and Lub from Holland. Wonderful people who went out of their way to make sure we had everything we need for our journey.
The food is simple and healthy fare at a reasonable price.
There is no restaurant or menu, it is family style. Again, the attention to detail makes it an occassion. The dining room is warm and welcoming with flowers and candles, a fire in the evening, and a table well set. The staff is courteous and engaging without being overbearing. I hated to leave. Really!

This Dutch Ninos Foundation is not the same one as the Ninos Hotel in Cusco, though after staying at both, and eating at the Dutch restaurant, Tres Mundos in Cusco, I am now on the look out for all things Dutch when traveling.
