Hacienda Concepcion, the fifth hotel in Peru by Inkaterra opens its doors to the public. Located on the banks of the Madre de Dios River deep in the Amazon Jungle, Hacienda Concepcion is the second mid-range hotel to be offered by Inkaterra, as part of their range of more affordable accommodations, under the brand name ‘by Inkaterra’.
Hacienda Concepcion caters to nature-loving enthusiasts looking for an authentic Jungle experience in a comfortable and relaxing environment, but at a price that suits most people’s budgets. Situated close to Lake Sandoval (home to the endangered Giant Otter) and thirty minutes down river from Puerto Maldonado, Hacienda Concepcion is remote yet easily accessible by air from Cusco and Lima.
The lodge which is constructed from wood and eco-friendly materials, features a main lobby with 8 twin rooms plus seven individual cabañas for a more intimate experience. With high ceilings, a hand-woven thatched roof and furniture made of salvaged wood, the main lodge also houses the reception and dining areas.
Accommodations are rustic in style, but practical and offer guests twin or king beds with mosquito nets, 70/30% cotton sheets, hypoallergenic pillows, cotton bath robes and hot rain water showers. The larger cabañas additionally offer guests a sitting area complete with hammock.
Hacienda Concepcion also offers set excursions in Spanish and English, which are classified according to their duration and difficulty level. Excursions include the Inkaterra tree top canopy walkway, macaw clay lick, Lake Sandoval, a jungle farm visit, night time trips and much more.
