Creativity is the pulse of life

‘Colour is a power which directly influences the soul’ – Wassily Kandinsky


Art, colour, heart and soul are the key ingredients at Sol y Luna, our Relais & Chateaux hotel in Urubamba, Peru.

Each casita (little house) is decorated inside and out with vibrant colours and original art.

Colours inspired by nature

Living life in colour

Founders Petit and Franz have supported local artists from Peru these past few decades, using the hotel and grounds as a way to showcase the creativity of the country.

There are larger-than-life statues dotted around Hotel Sol y Luna giving it a magical and mythical air

Peruvian contemporary artist Federico Bauer is the artist who created the statues and frescos. His mythical style is unique and carries a touch of humour. Each piece has been created specially for Sol y Luna, and there are some artworks in our boutique which guests love to take home with them.

Working with local artists

A hotel to remember

Hotel Sol y Luna has 43 rooms spread throughout 25-acre gardens.

It is the only Relais & Chateaux hotel in Peru’s Sacred Valley and is the ideal base for exploring the surrounding area and Machu Picchu.

The name Footprint originally came from our newsletter and we decided to use it for the Sol y Luna blog as well. Footprint fits well with the concept of Sol y Luna: our hotel was founded to support the local community. Leave footprints of kindness wherever you go.
