Inkaterra La Casona is an eco-friendly boutique hotel set in a manor house dating back to the 16th century. It’s a stone’s throw from the historic centre of Cusco, a large city famed for its smattering of Spanish colonial buildings and Inca ruins. When staying here, guests are very well located for exploring the many historic sights the city is home to, as well as the many preserved ruins and traditional villages scattered throughout the surrounding mountains.
All of the accommodation options at the hotel are suites and they fall under the following three categories: the Plaza Suite, the Balcon Suite and the Patio Suite. All suites are lavishly decorated and handsomely furnished, with a stone fireplace and marble bathroom providing a sense of character and style. There’s either a king sized bed or two twins, and bathrooms come with two separate wash basins, a bathtub, a shower and a separate toilet. Amenities include a flat-screen TV with cable channels and DVD player, air conditioning and a minibar. Floors are heated and corridors are lined with various colonial artworks and attractive traditional furniture. Suites offer views of either the hotel’s central courtyard or the Plaza Nazarenas, a traditional square in the heart of Cusco.
The restaurant serves three meals a day, plus afternoon tea. The food is predominantly Peruvian, with the menu showcasing a broad range of the country’s finest dishes. The drinks menu is just as extensive and diverse, with a tempting selection of both national and international cocktails and other drinks available. At the Yacu Therapy Room, there's a range of indulgent spa treatments to enjoy, from exfoliation and oxygen therapy, to reflexology and de-stress massages. The hotel offers a number of additional services including movie nights, explorer kits for children, special events and cooking classes.
While guests are of course free to explore Cusco and the Sacred Valley at their own pace, there are some organised tours available. Some of these are half-day tours, whilst others last the full day. Examples include city sightseeing walking tours, guided trips to nearby Inca ruins, scenic horse riding expeditions and motorbike excursions.
The hotel welcomes children and offers a good range of child-oriented services and amenities. There’s a nanny service available, with a number of activities available that are suitable for children.
Hi - now back.
In short it was a great holiday with very very little to fault. Location on Lopud was perfect for family and accommodation was exactly as you said ‘simple’ clean and comfortable hosted by a wonderful friendly local family ...all 1min walk from the front. Great breakfast that was straight from the garden in part and always abundant.
Our guide Nina was excellent always putting our safety first and adapting the itinerary to suit weather. She was a great host with the two families in our group and went out her way to keep us informed and even take photos to share when we were out on the water.
Transport arrangements were spot on - always there waiting at airport or ferry! Slight confusion that it wasn’t a TourDust sign but that was quickly solved.
Kayaking was a great adventure and a challenge some days but worth it for the stops on other islands and opportunities to swim, dive and explore caves. I suspect it could be a long day if your child is too young or not such a ‘water baby’ as once your in the kayak your in it! It is also a hefty bit of exercise on a two person kayak if the child in front isn’t up for paddling! I was fine except on one or two occasions where it was a bit of a struggle and I had to persuade him to do some more paddling for me.
Finally, your service has been great since we got in touch especially as it was a last minute decision for us to go. The speed in responding to queries on a personal basis and quickly was really great (very unusual these days!)
All in all a great holiday - my 11 year old had a great adventure he will talk about for years! So will I....

We had a fabulous holiday thank you! Everything went very smoothly - accommodation was good, breakfast fantastic! The kayaking was great - really well thought out schedule with plenty of rests and time to relax. Lovely meals out.
Just wanted to add that our guide Nina was excellent. She worked really hard to ensure the whole trip went smoothly and that we were all happy with the pace, including giving the boys plenty of opportunities for jumping in off the cliffs!!
All in all a great trip! And all the admin side of things has been very efficient throughout.
Thank you so much!!

Hi, just back home now as stayed in London last night. It was fab! We loved it! Amazing all round- Thankyou. Best holiday ever!!!
Accommodation great at both places, guides lovely, staff great. We saw more animals than ever expected: giraffes, lion, elephants, water hog, wilder beast, impala, white rhino, crocodiles, hippos in lake Sybia, monkeys in trees at Tonga.
Beach beautiful, but a bit windy, waves v rough but didn’t deter my boys. We snorkeled which was fab but too rough on day we booked to do ocean experience.

Weather better than we expected!
Must go and do some laundry, but hope that helps?
