Belmond Palacio Nazarenas is an elegant, upmarket hotel located in a former 17th century convent in the UNESCO World Heritage city of Cusco, southern Peru. This unique hotel offers 55 beautifully appointed suites complete with a personalised butler service, a spa, a gourmet restaurant, and the city’s only outdoor heated swimming pool. The property will appeal to travellers seeking a highly comfortable, urban retreat complete with outstanding service.

Cusco has long attracted visitors en route to the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu, and the hotel sits conveniently in a peaceful yet central location, just behind the main square in Cusco, and only 15 minutes from the airport.

Guest areas include an informal restaurant for breakfast, lunch, and dinner which offers both contemporary and traditional Peruvian cuisine. The hotel has a lovely outdoor heated pool surrounded by loungers, with an adjacent pool bar serving refreshments and light meals. Traditional afternoon tea is available in the picturesque courtyard gardens, surrounded by ancient fountains, and indigenous plants and herbs. A converted chapel serves as a cosy guest lounge, complete with computers, widescreen TV, and a snooker table. There is a library, a gift shop, and a relaxing spa and Jacuzzi.

Activities include complimentary yoga, salsa lessons, and free tasting sessions of the national liquor, Pisco, a fine grape brandy dating back 500 years. Cooking lessons can also be arranged.

The accommodation comprises 55 stylish suites, artfully blending ancient Inca stonework, colonial architecture, and high-tech comforts. Cusco is located at 11,000 feet above sea level, and each room receives oxygen-enriched air through its air con system, to combat potential altitude sickness. Suites range in size from junior to larger one bed units with separate lounges. All have a king size or twin beds, a lounge/dining area, and a spacious marble bathroom with underfloor heating, plus a shower and separate bathtub. Many suites have a private balcony or terrace and all have tranquil views over the courtyard or garden. Some suites located on the hotel’s higher floors enjoy atmospheric views towards the city’s artistic hub of San Blas. All units benefit from 24- hour butler service, plus a complimentary minibar, hot drink facilities, satellite TV, air con, and free Wi-Fi.

Although children of all ages are welcome, the hotel doesn’t organise child specific activities. One guest up to five years of age stays free of charge when sharing with parents, and little ones under 8 years receive a soft toy as a gift. Connecting rooms, cots, and additional beds can be provided, subject to arrangement.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
