Belmond Palacio Nazarenas
Hotel - 5 stars
Built on Inca foundations, rich history meets modern indulgence in Cusco's fairytale hideaway. We’ve preserved all that is precious: original Inca stonework, colonial frescos and gold-framed paintings. And yet, upon entry a contemporary Cusco comes to the fore. Discover a fabulous spa, the city's first outdoor pool and daring cuisine from leading Peruvian chefs.
Bedding down in a former convent isn’t necessarily what you might expect. Lovingly restored, 16th-century architecture gives each artistic room and suite a distinctly colonial feel. Recline on a four-poster bed splashed with hand-embroidered silk coverlets. Bathe beneath hand-painted frescos using soap perfumed by the Palacio’s own flowers. Some suites feature original Inca stonework; others boast balconies with hypnotic views of Cusco’s distant, mist-wrapped mountains.
