Inkaterra La Casona, Cusco, Peru

Experience Cusco’s first luxury boutique hotel; a converted Conquistador’s house, with gorgeous suites gathered around a 16th century courtyard.

One could easily miss La Casona. But perhaps that is the point. This boutique hotel is set on a secluded plaza; deliberately keeping itself quietly hidden behind discreet wooden doors. A welcome contrast to the insistent bustle of life at the heart of vivacious Cusco – capital of the mighty Inca empire.

Once inside those doors you will find yourself in the ancient courtyard of an original Conquistador’s house. It’s a cool oasis where the patina of time hangs gracefully, but you’ll find its style and amenities are anything but dated.
