Situated in the historic center of the Cusco, the elegant Palacio del Inka is encircled by colonial buildings built over ancient Inca foundations, museums, monuments, premium restaurants, and vibrant local markets. This storied mansion dates back nearly five centuries, and is designed to showcase a magical blend of pre-Columbian, Inca, Spanish, and modern cultures. Living up to the hotel’s majestic spirit, the rooms and suites blend a rich Spanish personality with the city’s enchanting history. Offering fantastic courtyard or streetside views through oversized windows, the elegantly designed ensuite rooms and suites reflect a rich colonial heritage offset by Andean touches like the rainbow of tassels on the handmade curtains that are reminiscent of the tradition of adorning the ears of llamas and alpacas in the high Andes.
The evocative Inti Raymi Restaurant tempts guests with Andean specialties and international favourites prepared with fresh local ingredients, organically grown or sourced from the Sacred Valley, while the Rumi Bar serves up signature and classic cocktails, beer, and wine, along with culinary snacks and tapas. After a day of exploring the fascinating city, guests can relax in the signature spa, which taps into the ancient mysticism of the Andes to soothe the senses and harmonise body and soul.
