Cusco’s most famous and prestigious hotel, Monasterio is a beautifully restored monastery in the heart of town just steps away from the main plaza, finest restaurants and best museums. Built around Incan foundations, adorned with antique Spanish design, the hotel is an important historical landmark and is protected by the National Institute of Culture.
The 126 unique rooms offer a great mix of elegance and comfort, ranging from cozy quarters to expansive suite. The hotel also goes the extra mile in terms of guests’ comfort with the provision of some oxygen enriched bedrooms to help acclimatize to the high altitude.
There are two restaurants – Illariy in the cloisters opening out over the leafy courtyard where you’ll find delicious breakfasts and light lunches, and El Tupay which serves fine international cuisine created from local ingredients, often accompanied by opera. The relaxed lobby bar is the place to sip pisco sours after a day exploring.
Hotel Monasterio is a Jacada Signature Property for excellence in personalised service and luxury. Jacada guests making new reservations here will receive a free welcome drink upon arrival.
Belmond is committed to preserving the communities and environments of its worldwide destinations. In 2010, Belmond Hotel Monasterio arranged a fair trade strategic alliance with a village community in the Sacred Valley near Cusco. This project has led to an increase in profits and the quality of life for local farmers, and encouraged the use of organic fertilizers which fosters healthier produce and soil.
