Set in a tranquil plaza just behind the city’s main square, the Belmond Palacio Nazarenas Hotel is a former palace and convent, now restored into one of the finest hotels in Cusco. This romantic urban retreat features contemporary style and comfort amidst a façade of ancient Inca stones, cloistered courtyards and a century’s old fountain. The hotel’s 55 suites each come with a personal butler and offer guests lofty ceilings, four-poster beds and wooden floors adorned with thick Persian carpets. While the enormous ensuite bathrooms offer underfloor heating, Peruvian marble and glasses of bubbly sipped in deep tubs.
After an exciting day of exploring the city, you can both relax on one of several tranquil terraces and patios landscaped with indigenous flowers and kitchen herbs, take a dip in Cusco’s only heated outdoor pool, or enjoy browsing through the books and artefacts in the hotel’s library and lounge, which was once a chapel. Tangy salmon ceviche, purple corn chips, black quinoa salad, Andean trout and suckling pig are just some of the culinary delights that await guests at Senzo, the hotel’s restaurant. To end your unforgettable day, there’s nothing better than a romantic aromatherapy massage at the hotel spa, using Andean herbs selected by a local shaman.
