Hotel Monasterio: luxury at the foot of the Inca citadels

romantic

The most prestigious Cusco hotel offers a magical setting.

For an enchanted Interlude in the Sacred Valley, nothing comes close to this architectural masterpiece of the 17th century. A Jesuit monastery for several centuries, it has been converted into a luxury hotel, with 122 rooms and suites in classic chic Spanish colonial style.

Multiple works of art and ancient tapestries adorn the walls, yet modernity is affirmed in every manner, from plasma screen TVs to WiFi, plus bathrooms with marble galore and even a ‘bath butler' available on request. The inner cloister, framed by ancient stone colonnades, is remarkable. It encloses a beautiful exotic garden, shaded by a giant cedar, where breakfast is served, as well as aperitifs and tapas a good place to start before sampling the exquisite menu of El Typay, known for its traditional cuisine and opera concerts.
