Belmond Palacio Nazarenas is an elegant, historic five-star hotel in Cusco and one of the most luxurious hotels in all of Peru. A cloistered courtyard greets you on arrival at this resorted 17th-century palace and convent, oozing history. A suite-only hotel by international luxury chain Belmond, it maintains many original Inca and colonial features across its refined 55 rooms. This sumptous hotel offers stand-out service and perfectly suits discerning modern travelers looking for the finest luxury comforts in Cusco.

Belmond Palacio Nazarenas

The historic and newer buildings – with a total of seven cloistered courtyards – are interjected with tranquil terraces and landscaped patios, where you can find local flora and herbs (fresh Andean tea bags can be provided on demand). With 24-hour butler service as standard, an outdoor heated swimming pool, excellent spa and lounge with snooker table, this first-class hotel sets the bar high when it comes to luxury accommodation in Peru. Situated on the small square of Plazoleta Nazarenas, home to a cluster of top quality hotels, Belmond Palacio Nazarenas is positioned immediately next to Belmond Hotel Monasterio, similarly a five-star property.

The styles are noticeably different between the two Belmond properties, with Belmond Palacio Nazarenas offering a more contemporary classic luxury finish, while Belmond Hotel Monasterio fully embraces the tradition and history of its building, with colonial wall art featuring prominently in decor throughout the rooms and hotel.
