Belmond Palacio Nazarenas Boutique Hotel
A former Palace & 16th Century Convent displaying a masterful mix of ancient & modern
Belmond Palacio Nazarenas is located in an exclusive area of downtown Cusco, between the city’s central square, the Plaza de Armas, and the young, lively neighbourhood of San Blas.
This all-suite property is housed in a former 16th century Carmelite convent. Step past walls of Inca stones and into a cloistered courtyard with an ancient fountain at its heart. This intimate urban retreat has just 55 suites, each enriched with oxygen and with its own private bar where guests can create drinks accented with fresh ingredients grown at and around the hotel. The interiors are accented with Persian rugs, exposed stone walls, and heated Peruvian marble bathrooms. Senzo Restaurant offers exceptional cuisine in a vibrant yet refined atmosphere and the Hypnôze spa is the perfect place to indulge with a massage. 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.
Learn about the hotels vibrant past on a complimentary tour available daily from 8:30 to 10am or tour the hotel’s secret gardens and learn about the local produce. Pick out your favourites, which will be carefully prepared in a tea bag for tasting. Soothe and revitalise body and mind with yoga sessions on the terrace overlooking the pool or join the complimentary salsa lessons provided at Senzo Bar on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Every corner of the hotel holds a piece of historical significance but Palacio Nazarenas is also awash in New World exuberance.
