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.

My wife got sick and we had to extend our stay in Cusco one extra day. We had stayed at the Marriott to start with but they were less than helpful in finding a room for the extra night. From the moment we entered the Monasterio things started looking up. They helped me change my flight home and within 15 minutes of checking in, all the staff were calling me by name. The common areas and restaurants are perfection and I was made to feel like a king during my stay. I only wished I had chosen this hotel in the first place. It is a little pricey but totally worth it.

The room we stayed in was beautiful and really big with a view of the roofs and streets of Cusco. The buffet breakfast here is absolutely delicious with so much variety make sure you try all of their homemade pastries. Also try and make time to have a pisco punch ( one of my favourite cocktails) in the courtyard.

This is one of the most authentic and beautiful hotels I have had the pleasure of staying in. The property has been kept completely in keeping with the original Monastery, all the public areas are beautiful, including the courtyards, where you can sit by the fire in the evening to enjoy a drink (but be warned it does get very cold at night). The church is just incredible so make sure you visit it. We were upgraded to a beautiful room with a tiny balcony overlooking the courtyard which was delightful, the staff were exemplary throughout but in particular I would like to recognise Jose who was part of the concierge team and looked after us wonderfully throughout our stay. The Opera evening is a wonderful way to spend an evening although perhaps my only criticism is that the food was quit expensive, I think we spent c$180 on 2 courses each and a glass of wine, which bearing in mind Peru is a country renowned for it's incredible food and we didn't have a bad meal anywhere seemed a little much even given the beautiful setting. We stayed for 2 nights before a night in Aquas Calientes, we then came back to Cusco but unfortunately the hotel was fully booked or we would have stayed on our return. Instead we ended up with 2 nights at the JW Marriott, which paled in comparison making the fact it was cĀ£100 per night more expensive than the Belmond grate a little!

Sounds like a cliche for the title but it is true. Arrived here after a trip to the Galapagos Islands. The grounds are so quiet and the staff and rooms are brilliant! The food is very good (for both vegetarians and others). Service is great. At breakfast there was a classical guitarist playing my favourite Concierto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo. Brilliant. The hotel is near to the town and the sights/sites. Well worth a visit.
