It List 2016: the Best New Hotels on the Planet

Your conclusive guide to the most compelling hotel openings of the year.

Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba in Sacred Valley, Peru

35 of 49

The Sacred Valley, with its lush panoramas and impressive ruins, has typically played third fiddle to Cuzco and Machu Picchu, in part because there have been few luxe places to stay. But now Inkaterra provides a reason to stop and linger awhile. Its 36 rooms are an homage to Andean craftsmanship, with exposed eucalyptus beams and handmade furniture. When you’re not lying in bed, staring agape at the forested countryside and surrounding mountains, you can tour nearby ruins like Ollantaytambo or visit the property’s 10-acre farm, where lima beans and medicinal herbs are grown for use in the restaurant. A standout on the excellent menu is the pastel de choclo: corn cakes with guinea-pig ragù. Inkaterra.com; doubles from $462.
