Inkaterra la Casona
Internationally acclaimed boutique hotel fusing an enchanting colonial atmosphere with state-of-the-art luxury to create an oasis of calm in central Cusco.
This very special place is recognised as one of Peru's finest hotels and has received numerous international plaudits, ranking among the top hotels in the world according to prestigious magazines such as Tatler and Condé Nast Traveller. It is now included in the exclusive Relais & Châteaux portfolio, the only accommodation in Cusco to have received this accolade.
The pampering and cosseting you will get from the staff at Inkaterra La Casona will make you feel like an honoured guest. Although it’s close to the action in the city, this is an oasis of calm and contemplation.
There are just 11 generously-proportioned suites, each featuring a mélange of colonial-inspired antique furnishings and state-of-the-art modern facilities – from huge bath tubs and freestanding showers to LED TVs and under-floor heating. Yet the feel is far from impersonal: there are also lovely homely touches like an open fire and a hot water bottle waiting for you in your bed.
The public areas are particularly atmospheric, adorned with religious paintings, arches and Peruvian motifs, and the food served in the glamorous restaurant is among the best in Cusco. All in all, no expense or effort has been spared to create a truly exceptional experience.
