Belmond Palacio Nazarenas – Cusco, Peru – 5 star – Perfect retreat…


..after a day in Machu Pichu.

I stayed here for 2 nights after spending a day in Machu Pichu. Great way is to take the Hiram Bingham express to Cuzco.

Spend at least 2 days in this city also becuase you will walk very slowly to discover the city as it is located on 3.400 meters above sea level and oxygen is luxury.

People are always welcoming you with a genuine smile. Step past walls of Inca stones and you enter a cloistered courtyard with an ancient fountain at its heart.

This intimate urban retreat has just 55 suites, each enriched with oxygen, which makes you sleep as a child finally after days i was fighting with high altitudes.


Location

In the city center. Better than this is impossible. 5 (slow) walking minutes and you are in the main square with its amazing market and restaurants.


Rooms

This hotel has the best linen ever. I asked if they were available to purchase. The cost is 1500 Dollar for 1 set…they are soft, hand decorated and just beautiful to look at.

The butler service is real and they really provide what the state on their website:

Your butler will:

  • Send an email prior to your arrival to see if you have special requirements
  • Help unpack and pack your luggage
  • Prepare refreshing cocktails and teach you how to mix a pisco sour
  • Provide top tips on where to go and what to do in Cusco and book your tours
  • Coordinate laundry and shoe shine services
  • Supply you with your choice of hand-made soap made with local ingredients
  • Arrange wake-up calls and room service
  • Assist with check-out

I can tell you that i drank the best pisco sour here and that hand made soap  with rosemary and mint done on herbs growing in the hotel was amazing.

  1. Hi Moritz! Yes Belmond (ex Orient Express) have very nice hotels. I gave a 9 because it still had some “child deceases” as it was still in the opening year. Now it is in its second year so surely they have managed to fix those very minor issues.
