Right beside the lively Cusco central square is Belmond Hotel Monasterio, a former monastery and national monument dating from 1592. This delightful retreat combines centuries-old charm with luxury hotel service, inspired restaurants and boutique rooms and suites - all clustered around a tranquil central courtyard. If you can tear yourself away from the charms of the hotel it is also a great base from which to discover the delights of Cusco.
When it was turned into a hotel Belmond were allowed to change very little of the infrastructure, so they decided to create a 5* hotel as close to the original character as possible. The result is stunning, with original artworks and antiques throughout the hotel and even its own church. However, there are still all the comforts that one would expect from a 5* establishment including luxury king-size beds, a flat-screen TV (tucked away in an antique casing) and private bathroom with L’Occitane amenities.
The hotel also has a great bar area with even more original artworks, as well as two restaurants serving delicious cuisine. There is also access to a spa with a comprehensive range of treatments and the Belmond service from all the staff is first-rate. This hotel offers a unique, luxury experience in Cusco and is well worth the extra to stay here.
”Belmond Hotel Monasterio offers a totally unique first class experience and is one of our favourite hotels in Peru, and indeed Latin America. If you can stretch the budget a little to stay here you won’t be disappointed!”
