La Casona Inkaterra
Centrally located in one of the most beautiful squares in Cusco, this 16th-century manor has been transformed into Peru’s first Relais & Châteaux property. The hotel operates as a private house for a limited number of guests and is not open to the general public. You will need to knock on the front door in order to be let in, there is no lobby and check-in is done in the mansion’s living room.
Every detail of décor exudes the owner’s refined taste, a signature of Inkaterra’s properties. Decor features a fusion of colonial and Inca influences yet with contemporary comfort. There is an inviting bathtub (and shower) in each of the 11 spacious rooms.
- There are three types of suites available at the property, however, we suggest considering either the ‘Balcony’ or ‘Plaza’ which features a balcony looking out either onto the main street or the Nazarenas Square (Plaza).
- The main road can get a bit noisy and if you are looking for something quieter, the ‘Patio’ suites feature windows which face onto the inner courtyard.
- The oxygen therapy offered at the spa is a great option for you to adjust to the altitude in the case that you arrive and spend your first night in Cusco which is at 3400 m/11000 ft above sea level.
