The Skylodge Adventure Suites hotel in the Sacred Valley just 15 minutes from Ollantaytambo. You can’t miss it since the rooms are pods hanging from the side of a 400 meter cliff.
It’s quite an adventure to get there. You must climb up the face of the rock, which has steel hooks embedded in it to help you and a fixed steel wire rope secures climbers for the whole ascent. This is known as a via ferrata and the climb takes almost four hours. Your reward will be to spend the night above the ground.
Get ready to sleep in a suspended transparent capsule that can accommodate up to four people, where you can watch the stars and admire the scenery until dawn. Note: this is not recommended for those who are afraid of heights!

Every hanging module is made from aerospace alloy and high-strength polycarbonate. They have up to four beds with feather duvets, a dining room, and private bathroom. You enter through a hatch in the top of the capsule, which has six windows, four ventilation ducts, and lighting – all completely environmentally friendly. Once inside you can take your harness off and enjoy the hotel stay of a lifetime.
