Uno de los principios de Aranwa Hotels Resorts & Spas es revalorar el legado de nuestros antepasados. Por esta razón, la propuesta de Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness incluye la remodelación de una tradicional casona del Valle Sagrado, la antigua Hacienda Yaravilca.

Para resaltar la riqueza de la cultura peruana, el hotel alberga en su galería de arte una exhibición preincaica de pinturas de la Escuela Cusqueña, y documentales en su sala de cine. Además, exhibe una exposición permanente de obras de conocidos artistas peruanos, tales como José Sabogal, Enrique Camino Brent, Martín Chambi, entre otros. El Hotel Aranwa Cusco Boutique también cuenta con una exhibición de arte permanente.

Como parte de la difusión de la cultura, el Grupo San Pablo ha publicado 3 libros que demuestran la riqueza patrimonial de nuestra historia: “Dioses y hombres de La Libertad”, una crónica de las tradiciones liberteñas; “El apu de las nieves”, que retrata un abanico de imágenes de las fiestas cusqueñas del Qoyllur Rit’i y el Corpus Christi, dos de las más importantes celebraciones religiosas de la sierra sur del Perú; y “La virgen del Titicaca”, que retrata la celebración de una de las festividades más importantes del sur del Perú: la fiesta de la Virgen de la Candelaria.

Social Responsibility

The knowledge and management skills of the Aranwa staff are used for the benefit of the community. Work is divided into 3 pillars: Philanthropy, Social and Environmental Welfare and Conservation.

  • Urquillos Medical Center

    In 2010, we established a Medical Center in Urquillos to provide health care not only to that community, but also to the surrounding communities.

    This center has the support of the San Pablo Group, which has the largest network of clinics in the country; and whose experience has enabled us to offer excellent medical services to these families.

    Both the volume of attendance, as the type of specialties offered at the center, have been evolving since the day the center was opened.

    We keep working with the aim of reaching more families in need, so they can have a better quality of life.

  • Medical Care and Social Assistance

    Due to heavy rains that lashed out the Imperial City in February 2010, Aranwa and the San Pablo Group implemented a medical tent with a group of specialists and nurses who conducted the necessary medical work, especially in the towns of Huayllabamba and Huicho.

    For the benefit of the flood victims, the San Pablo Group (comprised of Aranwa Hotels Resorts and San Pablo hospital complex) sent food, canned goods, blankets, clothing, and other items that were assigned to the Province of Ollantaytambo.

    2011: The effects of rainfall were not as bad as in 2010; however, in some months the temperature decreased to such an extent that resulted in a phenomenon called “frost”. Many plantations and animals died, and many children developed respiratory diseases. In order to improve the living conditions during the winter, Aranwa organized a clothing drive for communities living in rural areas. Aranwa workers in Lima, donated winter clothes, coats, and blankets to the Q’eros community, which is located in the Department of Cusco, and maintains a precarious lifestyle similar to Inca times, completely isolated from contemporary life. The purpose of this drive was to help those who must often endure these severe frosts due to the location of their community.

    Aranwa has not only focused part of its social responsibility programs within Peru, but has also collaborated in international aid programs, such as “Relief in Japan”, promoted by the Preferred Hotel Group.

    2013: The Cusco Boutique Hotel staff voluntarily visited the children of the rural community of San Sebastian de Cusco. They brought warm clothes, food, toys and an evening of joy for these children who are children of alcoholic parents, and who also suffer the consequences of the harsh weather during the final months of each year.

    Aranwa along with other companies purchased Fundades Christmas cards 2013, which helped to raise the necessary funds to continue with the social development projects specifically aimed at children with disabilities and in extreme poverty.

  • Welfare and Community Work

    Nearby communities and the local school were given access to the Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness´ Internet system. With thanks to new towers, mobile reception and communication has improved and increased in the area. Since there are no public phones in Urquillos, we have asked the service provider to implement a phone booth so the community can benefit from this basic service.

    Thinking of the social and economic development of the people, activities and courses related to our spa concept were conducted. The first course “Social Extension of Spa Protocols and Techniques” was held from 6 to March 31 of this year, and it was addressed to the settlers of the District of Huayllabamba, and the people (living in the communities of the District: Urquillos, Huayoccari, Huycho and Raqchi) who wanted to be trained in this innovative craft. Currently, 4 out of 15 group members are working independently in high season, 1 works as utilitarian, and 2 as interns. In this way we have met our goal of providing a working tool, as well as development opportunities.

    With the approval of the President of the Urquillos Community, we have organized training sessions for children of the community in activities such as folk dancing, singing and musical instruments, hence enabling them to provide and receive for these services at the hotel.

  • Environment and Conservation

    Over 200 trees were planted to strengthen the riverbanks and preserve the local flora.

    Electricity demand was reduced using solar energy for outdoor Jacuzzi and swimming pools on the terrace of the Presidential Suite and the Lake Suite of the Sacred Valley; as well as for the Spa swimming pool in the Colca.

    Shopping bags of the hotel gift shop are now made of recycled paper.

    Rainwater is used to fill the interiors lakes of the Sacred Valley hotel.

    A bio-garden of fruits and vegetables supply most of the demand of the Pukawi Restaurant.

    The Unno Spa uses organic products (made from natural formulas and organic extracts). The packaging of these products is recyclable and biodegradable.

    Also, we promote environmental and conservation practices amongst our guests, such as encouraging them to reuse towels and sheets during their stay, in order to save water, waste separation, etc.

  • Conservation

    We promote observation tourism of marine species in a responsible manner, working closely with organizations like Blue Whale Foundation.
