“The most amazing resort in the Valley of Longevity is Madre Tierra (“Mother Earth”), a beautifully constructed resort with a spa, restaurant, water pools, and an assortment of other natural features.” — Mike Adams, www.NaturalNews.com.

Madre Tierra Hotel, Spa, Restaurant and Conference Centre, is located on a beautiful mountainside in lush tropical gardens. Overlooking spectacular views of the majestic Andes Mountains and the sacred Inca El Mandango Mountain, Madre Tierra is one of the most beautiful places on earth. People come from all over the world often extending their stay in their private “home away from home”.

You will love the deliciously healthy food from our gardens, the famous pure water, clean air and sweet people. For memorable weddings, celebrations, reunions and seminars reserve our artistically unique conference centre.

Madre Tierra “spa has the best spa treatments in Latin America.” Let us pamper you in this peaceful, relaxing environment. You can spend an hour or days there and remember again what it means to relax. This sacred valley known for perfect year round temperature, tranquility and friendly people is the no-stress environment you have been seeking. Is this the secret that helps the famous Old People in this Valley of Longevity live so long? 

We will have exclusive use of the conference center to co-create extraordinary cuisine with the world’s most powerful ingredients! Massage and access to an on-site detox spa will be available. We will enjoy the hotel’s fresh juice bar, pools and other facilities as well as the magical countryside.
