Cusco’s most famous and prestigious hotel, the Belmond Hotel Monasterio Cuzco is a beautifully restored monastery in the heart of town just steps away from the main plaza, finest restaurants and best museums. Built around Incan foundations, adorned with antique Spanish design, the hotel is an important historical landmark and is protected by the National Institute of Culture.
The 126 unique rooms offer a great mix of elegance and comfort, ranging from cozy quarters to expansive suite. No two rooms here are alike and each one features stunningly beautiful furnishings reminiscent of the hotel’s former purpose, fine linens, and well-appointed bathrooms, providing you with all you need for a comfortable stay. The hotel also goes the extra mile in terms of guests’ comfort with the provision of some oxygen enriched bedrooms to help acclimatize to the high altitude.
There are two restaurants – Illariy in the cloisters opening out over the leafy courtyard where you’ll find delicious breakfasts and light lunches, and El Tupay which serves fine international cuisine created from local ingredients, often accompanied by opera. The relaxed lobby bar is the place to sip pisco sours after a day exploring.
By day, head to the courtyard’s cloisters and enjoy tea or a light lunch. Or take pen and paper, settle down by the central fountain and let the muses strike. In the evenings the courtyard’s graceful arches are accentuated by beautiful lighting. When darkness falls, the illuminated arches make a sensational frame for the starry night sky above.
The Belmond Hotel Monasterio Cuzco is the perfect place to relax and revive. Choose soothing aromatherapy or an energizing Thai massage from the treatment menu. Or call your personal Bath Butler to prepare an indulgent end to a day of adventure and exploration.
