Hacienda Concepcion, Inkaterra’s fifth hotel in Peru, has officially opened on the banks of the Madre de Dios River. With its opening, Hacienda Concepcion becomes the second property under the more affordable, budget-friendly ‘byInkaterra’ sub-brand, joining El MaPi, in Machu Picchu Pueblo. Both maintain the brand’s commitment to conservation and responsible tourism, while providing sophisticated lodging at a lower price point.
Remote and yet accessible, the new Hacienda Concepcion caters to nature-loving enthusiasts who visit the region in search of an authentic jungle experience, but are perhaps conscious of time and budgetary constraints. A “roughing it without roughing it” lodge, Hacienda Concepcion’s amenities include hot rain showers, Peruvian cotton linens and the same expert guides from Inkaterra hotels.
Twenty minutes down river from Puerto Maldonado, the new Hacienda Concepcion features a main lodge, with eight twin rooms and social spaces, and seven individual cabañas on stilts designed in the local style. With soaring ceilings, a hand-woven thatched roof and furniture crafted from salvaged wood, the main lodge will also be home to Hacienda Concepcion’s main dining room and reception.
Hacienda Concepcion is located on over 2,000 acres of lush rainforest within walking distance of Lake Sandoval (home to the endangered giant river otter) and offers a unique range of land and river excursions. While staying at Hacienda Concepcion, guests will have the opportunity to spot prehistoric hoatzins, various species of monkey and a plethora of other wildlife. In addition to wildlife experiences, guests will also be able to learn about the lodge’s history and its botanical gardens featuring local medicinal plants.
