In Inkallpa Valle Sagrado Lodge & Spa we care about the environment and is very important to work causing the least possible impact is why we detail everything we do for the planet and for our community.

  • We use efficient lighting: all lights are low consumption, we are also in flux for luminaires and LED lights.
  • Our buildings are made almost entirely with local materials, reducing transport and thus reduce fuel use.
  • The exterior walls of the buildings are 45 cm adobe material with high thermal inertia that stores heat from the sun during the day and releasing it at night when temperatures are lower. 85% of adobes in the constructions were made in the same hotel.
