      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.

      Magical Place


      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.

      Machu Picchu

      A travel blog entry by gavin_davies on Dec 30, 2014

      ... the locals. This kind of segregation really ****** me off, as it completely flies in the face of getting involved in the culture of the country. Prices in the local car were just as expensive however at 80ish sols ($26), which for a 45minute journey is one of the most expensive I have paid for. The ticket woman insisted that this is the price for the locals too, but I call BS. We saw a sign advertising 5sols. There's no way locals would ever be able to travel into the town at another ...

      ... nice dinner for our group along with the other 4 from the trail. I didn't want to miss it and was feeling a bit better so I went along. We went to the Fallen Angel restaurant, probably the most expensive restaurant in Cusco and one of the best in all of Peru. It is a gourmet Peruvian restaurant, 6 room hotel with carefully decorated and themed suites and an art gallery rolled into one. Several tables were made of old claw bathtubs with glass tops. Inside each tub ...

      ... and not complain about how sore and tired we were (myself included). We then went around on our own to explore the ruins and take photos (in my case try and find some llamas). Once we had our fill of Machu Picchu for the day we went into town to enjoy one last meal with our new Inca Trail family.

      One day was not enough for us to take in Machu Picchu so the following day we climbed ...

      ... I asked a couple locals where it was and no one knew and the free wifi at the cafe we went to wouldnt work either. This is when we realised we still had the wrist bands from the ecopackers in cusco which had the address to the aguas calientes one aswell. Still no one knew where the street was which was weird because after we found it we realised how small this town was. Literally the size of Bervie. Weird how locals didnt know where the main street was. It didnt take long to finish ...

      Day 10 - zip line, perilous bridges and HOT SHOWER

      ... the zip lines, we made for HydroElectrica where we continued our trek to Aguas Calientes, a small tourist town in the hills below Machu Picchu.

      The walk was pretty flat and straight forward, with the exception of a railway bridge whose wooden planks were at least 40cm apart. Each gap allowed us to peer down to the drop below and the rushing water of the Sacred Valley River. Richard aced this perilous bridge, darting across to the other side with no worry. ...
