Hideaways' Review
If these walls could talk, they'd speak of 16th-century conquistadors living in this former Inca palace, and of barefoot Carmelite nuns of the 18th century, quietly holding mass here in their simple convent chapel. Today, fortunate guests enjoy this meticulously restored palace-turned-convent-turned-hotel as they relax in luxury and have their every need anticipated by an attentive and top-notch staff. Thankfully, many historic details remain to intrigue visitors, such as the ancient wooden doors that mark the entrance to the Belmond Palacio Nazarenas, and an antique statue of the Archangel Gabriel found in the former nuns' quarters. Around every corner are examples of restored Spanish colonial murals and friezes, and a collection of Peruvian artifacts found on site—including an original Inca sandal—is showcased throughout the hotel.

History aside, today's Belmond Palacio Nazarenas is a haven of modern luxuries and conveniences bookended by bits of Inca and Peruvian culture. Each of the hotel's 55 suites offers generous personal space, and some have original architectural details like exposed stone archways and uniquely high ceilings. Then there are the Peruvian travertine marble bathrooms, romantic four-poster beds, and in-suite bars with espresso- and tea-making supplies. Of course, having 24-hour butler service means all those little details like unpacking, arranging for laundry service, and booking local tours will be thoughtfully attended to. And for guests who are struggling a bit with the altitude, each suite can be enriched with oxygen—as well as subtly scented with the aroma of Andean flowers and herbs—through its air-conditioning system.

A touch of local culture is woven throughout the treatments at Hypnoze Spa, where Peruvian ingredients like herbs, blue corn, coca leaves, and pink Andrean salts are incorporated into soothing massages and scrubs. The same holds true at Senzo Restaurant, where the chef creates artful Peruvian cuisine featuring indigenous ingredients, each dish decorated with edible flowers. And don't forget, just outside the Belmond Palacio Nazarenas' door, the vibrant community of Cuzco presents a thriving center for artist workshops specializing in painting, pottery, and textiles, plus a lively mix of cafes and small boutiques to explore.
