BELMOND PALACIO NAZARENAS
From the impressive Incan stone doorway and colonial-era wooden santos to the exquisite frescoes and a centuries-old fountain, Belmond Palacio Nazarenas puts its mesmerizing history (and some of the 80,000 artifacts discovered during the restoration) on full display. The pretty central courtyard has whitewashed adobe walls and hand-carved wooden balconies, and there’s a sun-drenched swimming pool and patio for unwinding after exploring Cusco.

Babysitting is available on request. With the dedicated kids club, children can have fantastic fun putting on traditional Cusco costumes and visiting attractions in the city including Koricancha, the Incan Temple of the Sun, the massive fortress of Sacsayhuaman, and the mysterious Qenqo temple.
You’ll spend time walking this historic city, enjoying the hotel’s spa, indulging in pisco tasting, cooking classes, and salsa lessons so be sure to bring some variety of clothing. Keep in mind Cusco is a pretty relaxed city with an upbeat vibe where most visitors are unwinding and dining out after long days trekking in the mountains.
Located through the cloistered courtyard and around the ancient fountain lies the fabulous spa with dedicated treatment rooms and tailor-made treatments. After a day of touring the city, head to the Hypnôze Spa for an aromatherapy massage using Andean herbs selected by a local shaman. Some of the six treatment rooms have glass floors looking down to carefully preserved Inca ruins underneath.
Food And Drink
The on-site Senzo restaurant has a strict food-miles policy; it grows its own vegetables at an organic farm in the Sacred Valley. The innovative dishes are infused with local produce — think tangy salmon ceviche, purple corn chips, black quinoa salad, Andean trout and suckling pig.
Celestielle Seen & Loved It Tip:
Cusco is 11,000 feet above sea level, but the oxygenated suites reduce the risk of altitude sickness. Our favorite suites are the Colonial Arch Suites with their intricate Incan archways leading to the spacious bedrooms.
