Munay Sonqo Guest Info

The Munay Sonqo center is in the heart of the Sacred Valley in a small community called Arin. The magic and beauty of this unique destination is felt by everyone who visits.

Weather and Environment

  • The weather in the Sacred Valley is mostly very mild. The days are generally between 18-23 degrees celsius, however, due to the altitude (2930m), nights can be as low as 4 degrees.
  • Peru has a wet season (November to April) and a dry season (May- October) each year. Pack accordingly for stays during the wet season.
  • Sunburn occurs faster here than at lower altitudes, so always carry sunblock and a hat.
  • Avoid drinking tap water. Although the water at our center is treated, we also provide alkaline Kangen-filtered water with a pH of 9.5 to help the body to alkalize, oxygenate, rejuvenate, and digest better at this altitude.
  • We’re quite close to the jungle, so we have a diverse ecosystem of flora and fauna including mosquitos, spiders, and other bugs. Bring natural insect repellent for excursions and outdoor activities.
  • Even during our rainy season, the climate is generally dry. We recommend applying a natural daily moisturizer to keep you comfortable.


Our guests are served high-vibrational food with locally-grown and lovingly prepared ingredients, many of which come from our organic farm. 

  • We offer a vegetarian buffet for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
  • We can cater to vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free dietary requirements.
  • Chicken or fish can be served for lunch or dinner for an additional $5 per person per day upon prior request.

Living in Peace & Harmony with Nature

We naturally treat our water using an auxiliary ecosystem, which is based on plants, rocks, and sensitive microorganisms. This system filters and cleans the wastewater from our accommodations. This ensures the water can safely return to nature. 

We use this water on our gardens and to support our reforestation projects.

Because of this, please only use ecological shampoos, soaps, toothpaste, lotions etc.

Our boutique cafe, Cafe Sonqo, has many natural body product options for those who wish to switch over during their stay. Please ask the coordinator for opening hours.

Reception / Group Coordinator

A group coordinator will be present during meal times to assist with any questions or logistics during your retreat. Outside of meal times reception will be open from 6am–9pm.
