Belmond Hotel Monasterio in Cusco, Peru

Voted the Best Hotel in South America by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler, Belmond Hotel Monasterio deserves every accolade that comes its way. Built in the 16th century as a monastery on Inca foundations, this cloistered compound is located amid the historic splendor of Cusco, Peru. Most notably, the hotel serves as an ideal base for exploring the mystical ruins of Machu Picchu. Much of the original architecture of Belmond Hotel Monasterio remains intact, paying homage to its original seminarian occupants. In keeping with its intended purpose, the rooms and suites feature a mix of traditional and contemporary furnishings, with a gallery of religious art gracing the walls. Because of the high elevation, 11,000 feet above sea level, many of the rooms are equipped with an oxygen supplementation system for your added comfort.

Discover each room, hallway, and passage at the hotel, where every undiscovered nook seems to hold legendary secrets. Abutting the main square and courtyard is Illariy Restaurant, a dining retreat adorned with original paintings and art that serves distinctive Peruvian and international cuisine. Morning meals are taken in El Tupay Restaurant, and mixologists at the Lobby Bar are skilled at creating refreshing libations with the shake of a wrist. And if you are in the mood for a more private experience, simply ring for room service round-the-clock. Just a few blocks from Cusco's central square with the cathedral and many prominent museums, Belmond Hotel Monasterio provides an idyllic place to discover everything the region has to offer.

The staff here is incredible. They were so helpful from our waiters, Max and Wilbur and Cairo to taking care of our luggage while we were trekking with Adventure Peru Treks to Jose Pilaries arranging for a city tour of Lima and reservations at a really really good restaurant while we waited for our 1 am flight back to the United States. Oh and did I mention the hotel itself is true remarkable. We will definitely come back.

After a few minor problems with our room, we were met by Carolina from guest relations. Her understanding and gentle manner restored our confidence in the Belmond brand. The alternative accommodation provided was so good it removed both the Belmond St Petersburg and the Copacobana Palace from the top of our best list. However our great experience didn’t stop there. Our breakfast waiter Wilberto Soncco with his warm attentive service made our short three day an even more memorable experience. In our opinion the best ever Belmond is Cusco Monasterio.

This is a beautiful and unique hotel. It has been lovingly restored and you really do feel like you're staying in a 1500's monastery. Of course the rooms and bathrooms are completely modern and have a plush decor which I'm sure the earlier inhabitants would not recognize! I believe every room is different, but In our room, little touches like window shutters and a safe hidden behind a picture, created such a historical and fun atmosphere. The friendly and efficient staff, who often greeted us by name, helped to make our visit truly unforgettable.
