Located on mountain slopes a 20-minute drive from the city of Huaraz, Cuesta Serena boutique hotel is set in beautiful gardens at the edge of the Cordillera Blanca mountain range.

The hotel has seven suites with colonial architecture and decorated with warm and colourful Andean tones. The rooms are spacious with large windows to maximize the stunning views over the majestic mountains. The property has beautiful rose gardens with a gazeebo, a swimming pool and hammocks to relax in.

Cuesta Serena can arrange a number of activities and excursions into the nearby mountains, including day treks to sites such as the famous Laguna 69, Llanganuco Lakes, the Honda Valley, the  ruins of Wilcahuain, and the ruins at Chavin de Huantar. Other activities include a half day visit to local Peruvian artesans and a pisco sour lesson.

Once acclimatised, a great multi-day trekking excursion with camping is the 4 day / 3 night Santa Cruz trek, consistently named as one of the best trekking circuits in the world.

Back at the hotel, if you need to unwind after a day of hiking, enjoy a private yoga class in the garden, or a massage in the gazeebo or spa.
