What’s more, the Inkaterra La Casona is perfectly located on the Plaza de las Nazarenas, just off the city’s main square. As such, you’ll have all of Cusco’s colonial delights on your doorstep, with terracotta-capped roofs pointing towards its grand cathedral and gilded churches.
Back at base, the Inkataerra La Casona is decidedly intimate, featuring just 11 fully serviced suites. Each features everything from down duvets and stone fireplaces to large marble bathrooms and plush seating. The vibrant carpeting and rich fabrics are nice touches. There are also plenty of mod cons, including thermostat-controlled heated flooring, complimentary WiFi and iPod speakers.
Affectionately termed “The Dining Room”, the hotel’s restaurant combines contemporary flair with indigenous expression that’s inspired by seasonal ingredients. Inspired? Book onto a cooking class. It’s a similar story in the spa, where locally sourced botanical extracts are used across a range of treatments, from Andean hot-stone massages to foot therapy and reflexology. Then, perhaps round it all off with a drink at the honesty bar.
