Palacio Nazarenas: Orient Express’ new Cusco hotel opens its doors

Palacio Nazarenas has officially opened its doors to guests!

This fabulous hotel, one of the coveted Orient-Express collection, opened for business on Friday 15th of June. We reported back in October 2011 that the hotel would further raise the bar for hotels in Cusco and by all accounts this is set to be the case. Guests staying at the 55 suites will enjoy the highest quality of personal attention, with private butlers, fresh flowers in the room and such personalized details as a pillow menu, an iPad preloaded with advice about Cusco and a selection of Oscar-winning movies at your disposal. Each of the suites is lavishly decorated with local textiles and colonial carpentry, while some of them have their own unique characteristics – such as a particularly good view of the city, or perhaps a unique feature of colonial architecture – giving guests a wide variety to choose from.

Right next door to Orient Express’ other flagship hotel, Monasterio del Cusco, Las Nazarenas differs in that it has a swimming pool and a spa, and has a modern approach implicit in all areas of its service. It also has fewer, but more ample suites. For full details and specification please visit our corresponding website: Palacio Nazarenas.

We feel that this hotel is a welcome addition to the array of hotels already available in Cusco. It offers a more modern interpretation of Cusco’s culture that is not distasteful or detached, and is ideal for those guests who prefer a focus on personal attention. Aracari founder Marisol Mosquera will be visiting the hotel next month and will give a first-hand account of her stay there. For now, here is a selection of pictures from the hotel:
