Perhaps it's as well that we stayed here for the final two nights of our holiday, for anywhere else would be a disappointment after the Nazarenes.
We are picky travellers, we like all our comforts and really appreciate fine hotels. This delightful haven of peace and tranquility in a bustling city suited us perfectly. No noisy groups overwhelming the breakfast buffet - well, actually the breakfast buffet was brought to our table as a fantastic arrangement worthy of a stilll life photo in any upscale lifestyle magazine.
It goes without saying that the bed was super comfy, the bathroom extremely well thought out and the amenities first class. Those are the easy things to get right - it's the incredible staff, their genuine concern for our well being and the warmth of their welcome, together with the seamless attention to detail which makes the difference between any other deluxe hotel and the Nazarenes.
Dinner - a special Valentines menu - was excellent. Beautifully presented, it was a sophisticated interpretation of Peruvian cuisine at its best and, by European standards, very reasonably priced.
Palacio Nazarenes goes straight to the top of our 'favourite hotels of the world' list, alongside the Villa St Michele, another OrientExpress property. We'd love to return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Set in a tranquil plaza behind Cusco's main square, this former palace and convent emerged from years of restoration to become one of the city's most exclusive hotels. Step past walls of Inca stones and into a cloistered courtyard with an ancient fountain at its heart. Then be surprised as contemporary Cusco comes to the fore: a fabulous spa, the city's first outdoor pool and stylish restaurants serving cutting-edge local cuisine. This intimate urban retreat has just 55 suites, each enriched with oxygen and with its own private bar where guests can create drinks accented with fresh ingredients grown at and around the hotel. ... more less
