Unu Spa (water in Quechua) is Inkaterra’s unique SPA concept, combining the classic nurturing of a Spa with a mystical traditionally Andean approach.
All products are 100% natural, obtained from local botanical extracts, providing a pleasing spiritual, sensual and soothing experience.
UNU Spa is located near the Andean Sauna and the natural flowing spring-water pond at Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel.
Its name captures the beauty of this white orchid, making direct reference to its sweet aroma. The word “Fragrans” comes directly from latin fragrantia which means sweet smell, and later in the XVI century, from the French language fragrance.
