TripAdvisor, the prestigious and influential travel website, recently published the results of its 2012 awards for the Traveller’s Choice award which responds to the feedback of users and travelers worldwide. Who took the top honor? Tambo del Inka Hotel A Luxury Collection Resort, owned by the Libertador chain. Not only was the Peruvian hotel number 1 in South America, but it also ranked 9th in the world.
In 2011, this luxurious property (located next to the Urubamba River in Cuzco) won 7th place in the category of Relaxation & Spa; but this year, thanks to comments from guests, the hotel has climbed several positions and has established itself as the best among all hotels in South America – beating leading hotels in Argentina, Chile, and Brazil.
Opened in May 2010, Tambo del Inka Hotel has received several awards for its quality and services. In December of that year, the hotel received LEED certification for its practices in water and energy conservation, among the many other aspects of environmental sustainability it employs. It is the only hotel in Peru with this certification and the second in South America.
