The Monasterio is the kind of place that captures the imagination and transports the guest, by way of its chapel and its collection of paintings, to a time and place normally found in history books and museums.
The Incas thought Cuzco was the centre of the universe. Flying over the Andes from Peru's Pacific Coast, it's easy to understand why. Situated at an altitude of 3,400 metres, the valley of Cuzco is a green fertile bowl of terraced farms and forests, guarded in the distance by sentinels of mighty snow-capped peaks. Beyond these mountains are tropical jungles where the Incas once hunted extravagantly coloured birds and exotic beasts.
Working from a decorative palette of 'Spanish nobility meets New World', the rooms at Hotel Monasterio are far from a monk's cell. Dark oak furnishings, silk textiles and tassels create a rich, Latin, colonial context.
The view is of the centre of Cusco. You can see stone walls created by the Incas, mixed with cathedrals built by the Spaniards and many of the people who wander along the city's stone streets are still wearing indigenous colours and fabrics.
With its view onto the patio, Restaurant Illariy will charm you with its unique atmosphere and distinctive Andino-Nikkei cuisine.
