Hacienda Boutique and Resort Majoro
Majoro is a Spanish colonial-style hacienda and resort with large gardens, pool and restaurant a few kilometres outside Nazca.
This colonial hacienda, formerly a convent, is now an agreeable countryside hotel and leisure resort a few kilometres outside the desert oasis town of Nazca.
The low Spanish-style buildings have a tranquil setting within expansive gardens where peacocks and alpacas roam freely on the well trimmed lawns. You can sprawl in a lounger beside the large outdoor pool surrounded by foliage and there is a horse and carriage on the property. Enjoy a pisco sour cocktail (the hotel makes its own) in the contemporary bar or shady outdoor café area.
The hotel displays original pieces of colonial and regional art which belong to the proprietor's personal collection. There are 62 rustic, and very simple rooms of varying sizes, with private bathroom but no TV - there’s a set in the lounge which is a pleasant place to relax featuring plump sofas - and a traditional-style restaurant.
The hotel accepts large-ish groups but they usually are absent during the day. It designates itself as boutique but although service is good and there is a friendly welcome, boutique it is not.
What our clients say
Highilght: Watching condors rise on the thermals in Sondondo.RE, London
"We were so thrilled to have the 3 nights in Cusco - a) we all LOVED La Casona so much (the amazing bathrooms, the fireplaces (lit) in the bedrooms, the staff, the ambience, etc, and b) we SO enjoyed all the amazing restaurants in Cusco (we are food and wine lovers, so had a great time!). Machu Picchu was absolutely AMAZING too - something to remember forever. We did love Hotel B in Lima too, but of course we were jet-lagged and only there for 1 night....We had an amazing time in Peru - the highlight being Machu Picchu. I would strongly suggest that people should stay at the Sanctuary Lodge at the site to get the best from the experience. We loved Peru - and really loved Cusco."JH, London
Machu Pichu of course.IB, London
Most memorable experience: “Probably visiting the islands on Lake Titicaca followed closely by HB train and Machu Picchu"TS, Birmingham
The whole holiday was memorable and the flow and way it had been planned was excellent - we had a build up that allowed us to visit other parts of Peru, acclimatise and take in the history, culture and natural scenery before capping it off with the Inca trail and Machu Picchu!AB, Reading
Highlight: Reaching the sun gate mid/late afternoon to see Machu Picchu bathed in sunshine.RK, Worcester
