Once only an ancient San monastery, Belmond Hotel Monasterio sits amongst Cusco’s most cherished landmarks as one of the most handsome and best-preserved architectural and religious buildings in the city. The restored 300-year-old building has become a distinguished and luxurious accommodation option that combines five-star amenities with a delightful sense of both Cusco's Inca and Spanish traditions.
Its 126 rooms and suites are all uniquely decorated, boasting interiors that are richly decorated with antiques and artworks and range from quaint and cosy to spacious and luxurious. Atmospheric shaded arcades surround the central courtyard, which is scattered with comfortable seating areas and al fresco dining spots, and supplementary oxygen can be infused in to the rooms on request.
Why we like Belmond Hotel Monasterio
The property boasts some lovely and unique dining options, including an al fresco candlelit meal beneath the cloisters and under the stars in the jaw-dropping courtyard, or a feast accompanied by fine wine and live opera in the atmospheric restaurant.
Within the property, guests can revel in a number of exclusive cultural experiences that include unearthing the secrets of Peru’s national drink with a Pisco workshop, touring one of Cusco’s finest independent art collections with an expert in religious art and Peruvian history or visiting the captivating chapel to witness pieces rarely seen by the public.
For a unique experience, become a chef for the day with a Peruvian cooking workshop that even involved shopping for the produce at the market before eventually tucking in to the regional delicacies.
