Historical Traveler Reviews Kuychi Rumi Urubamba
KR: Kool Relax
Again it was great staying at Kuychi Rumi. Although the name in Quechua stands for "Rainbow Stone", My wife and I also think it stands for "Kool Relax." The colors, smells, tastes, sights and friends. Everything conspires and forces you to forget stress, aches and pains. Photographs you may have seen of this place do no justice to what it is; you have to live it! At night we recommend star gazing. What a sky! Last but not least, Claudia and Carlos are great hosts and will make you feel you've always known them.
Feeling at home
Carlos and Claudia :
I would like to thank you one more time your generous attentions, your professionalism and the love with which you have treated us at all moments. Everything came out marvellously well, something which we could not have achieved without you. What you have created in the KR is something extraordinary- You have not only constructed a beautiful place with a great conection to nature,but it is also an ambiance with energy full of love and harmony, a place where one feels like being "at home" from the moment one arrives. This is not only my feeling, but its the feeling of my whole family, and the credit is all for both of you that have a natural charisma to treat each person like a special friend. Thanks !
The highlight of our trip
Kuychi Rumi is the only one place to stay while visiting the hidden valley and Machu Picchu. Claudia and Carlos are the perfect hosts. There gracious hospitality and willingness to share there knowledge of the history, people and customs of Peru will make you feel welcomed and 'cared for'. Our time with at Kuchi Rumi was the highlight of our trip.
An Oasis in the Valley
This place is an oasis--totally soulful and a feast for one's senses. If a place could be designed for perfect sleeping, this place would and is it. From our window, we heard a natural spring trickling, the air was fresh and cool,and the crackles of a waning fire from the rustic stone fireplace were the components. Then to rise to the sight of the lovliest garden of random colors and sizes and shapes and smells is once again the perfect blend, but these for a day's start. The host and hostess, Claudia and Carlos, are only another example of the soulfulness of this wonderful place. Their affection for earth, their home, their country, and each other is contagious. Peru is far from my country, the USA, but it and K'uychi Rumi will never be far from my heart.
Greatest place to stay
It was my wife's 50th birthday and we went to see Machu Picchu.
Carlo & Claudia made the trip for us. Great friends and a beautiful place to stay. We originally signed on for 2 days and stayed 8 touring the valley and ruins. I hope it doesn't get too popular because we want to stay there when we go back

Unforgetable Experience in Cusco
K'uychi Rumi is a MUST if you are going to be visiting Cusco. This lodge is incredibly beautiful, comfortable, and authentic. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they assisted us with all our travel planning and accomodations. It was an awesome experience!
My favorite place in Peru
I go to the Kuychi Rumi every time I can. I live in Lima Peru but when I need to rest I take a plain and go to Urubamba. I am a real fan of the Kuychi Rumi. If I want to be alone this is the perfect place. If I want company Carlos and Claudia are always in good disposition and entertaining conversation besides their constant good sense of humor. I am planning to go this september because there is a special ceremony taking place on the 22nd. this same ceremony will take place in different parts of the world at the same time and the same day. If you want to know more about it enter (---)
Kuychi Rumi is a must if you are visiting Cusco. Take my advice you won´t regret it.
Must Experience it!!!!
Pictures and words will never convey the beauty of this paradise tucked in a corner of the mountains. This was the perfect place for my trip to Cusco and Machu Picchu-truly an unforgettable experience. I found the comforts of home away from home yet the architecture and ambiance made me feel I was living in Inca times. Claudia and Carlos are not only perfect, warm, fun and helpful hosts, they know the area and the people. I would have missed many little-known archeological treasures and extraordinary natural spots that they told me about. Claudia and Carlos have a welath of information and can meet every need-a tour guide, meals, white-water adventure, a quiet spot to meditate, the best angle to view a sunrise, the date of a festivity, etc. I hope to go back soon to explore the many spots I was not able to visit, to relax and enjoy my friends at K'uychi Rumi.
When I show friends pictures from K'uychi Rumi, I have to add that pictures and stories do not do it justice. Once you enter those walls you are in a magical place like no other I have ever been to. There are animals to play with, beautiful flowers, and even hummingbirds. Carlos and Claudia could not have made our trip to Peru any easier, or more majestic. They took care of everything we would ever need. It's also a perfect, central location to all of the sites. I hope to go back someday, and I know all of my travelling companions feel the same way.
On a real positive note, I must say that the Kyuchi Rumi place was superb. The people who own and run it were so nice to us and really looked after us. The place was lovely - the cottage / house things was great: spacious and well designed and decorated. It was only for an evening and a day but we found it to be so restorative and peaceful there. A really pleasant feel. We would recommend it whole heartedly to anyone. We were sad to leave ! We were also able to use it as a base for a good day out.

... some. After reaching the top, the horse, porter and I stopped for a while to allow him to rest as well as the horse while I took in the sites. I decided I would try give the next downhill part of the trek a go by foot, it was only 2.5kms and it was downhill so figured it would be ok. Turns out I was right and managed to make it to the lunch spot by foot. I curled up and took a nap while I waited on the others. I woke about 50 minutes later to the other guys arriving, ...
... said "Jono can have that one". They seemed to think it was an old and crusty horse that would die. But I found it quiet nice to ride. The tour was about three and a half hours which took us down to an old cave used by the Incas to do sacrifices. From there it was a trip out the mountain range by horseback for a view over the city and a quick snack. Before heading back downhill to the start point. Quiet a lovely day for a ride. It was then time to head out to get briefed of our ...
... suspenders and his guide Miriam, and then a Dutch couple and their guide, Rosa, to complete our whole group. We would all be camping together and dining together in the cramped dining tent for the next three nights. We made it to Ollyantambo around 10AM, where we met our porters and organized ourself for the trek. A handful of the group (the German, Bjorn, Brian p, and Theresa) hadn't ordered any porters, which made us feel a little bit wimpy at first, but ...
... at the campsite for lunch. As per usual, Chef Mario didn't disappoint. We feasted on soup, lightly fried chicken, rice, cheesy potatoes and a scrummy tomato salad, before heading to our tents for a well earned nap. An hour later Savi was shaking our tents - we weren't yet done for the day, we had his favourite inca site to visit! Once we were awake we headed 10 minutes round the other side of the mountain to Winay Wayña, an incredibly well preserved inca town. It was ...
... and a little distance beyond you get to the entrance of Machu Picchu. This isn't the train/bus tourist entrance but rather the Sun Gate. It deserves it's name (though, as always, 30 seconds after we arrived the clouds showed up and we couldn't see a thing!). The Sun Gate overlooks Machu Picchu, still about 45 minutes away and a few hundred meters below. When the sun comes out Machu Picchu shines brilliantly. While ...
