Located somewhere in the Andes mountain range, Belmond Palacio Nazarenas awaits visitors merely a few minutes away from both the Plaza de Armas and the San Blas quarter. At nearly 11,000 feet above sea level, there’s more than the sheer beauty of this place to make you feel dizzy. Formerly a palace and convent, the Belmond Palacio Nazarenas is a luxury hotel that’s sinfully beautiful.
Guests may choose one of 16 chica suites, 29 suites, nine grand suites, and a mind blowing Nazarenas suite. Feel free to savor the fireplaces, or the exquisite bathrooms with under-floor heating and Peruvian travertine marble, not to mention the stunning views of the hillside Inca site. And in case you want to head out of this paradise, you should totally visit Cuzco’s cathedral in the Plaza del Armas.
After an extended three-year restoration project, supervised by eight full-time archaeologists and Peru’s National Institute of Culture (INC), Orient-Express’ sixth hotel in Peru had finally opened its doors in this amazing palace.
Inca stone walls encase a cloistered courtyard, the fabulous spa, beautiful suites with personal butler service and the city’s first outdoor pool, not to mention the stylish restaurants that allow visitors to take a bite of the local cuisine. If that won’t make you feel spoiled, I don’t know what will.
