Originally built in 1595, Belmond Hotel Monasterio sits on the site of Inca Amaru Qhala’s palace.  A stay at Hotel Monasterio in Peru transports visitors back to the crux of Incan and Spanish civilization.

 

The Hotel’s design features historic touches to reflect its rich heritage.The stones around the entrance doors still bear the Spanish Arms Escutcheon and the image of Bishop Monsignor Juan Serricolea y Olea.The Chapel is decorated in Baroque style, with gold-plated pictures frames. Magnificent paintings depict scenes from the life of its patron saint.At the heart of the hotel is the beautiful cloistered courtyard, featuring a tranquil fountain and 300-year-old cedar tree.

 

Each Room is wonderfully unique, reflecting the monastery’s charm and elegance. Rich wood furnishings, antique artwork and architectural quirks add to the historic atmosphere. Some Rooms can be enriched with oxygen (for those needing help adjusting to the altitude)  to combat the effects of Cusco’s high altitude.

 

At night, indulge in a little local flavor at Illariy Restaurant, serving Peruvian classics like mouth-watering ceviche and yucca. Belmond Hotel Monasterio is now a national historic landmark, protected by Peru’s National Institute of Culture.
