Set within a 16th-century monastery built over the site of an Inca palace, Belmond Hotel Monasterio is an architectural marvel. Its impressive stone structure centres around a verdant courtyard with a 300-year-old cedar tree and fountain, ideal for soaking up this atmospheric secret haven over light meals and drinks. Later, discover the hotel's glittering chapel, formidable collection of 18th-century religious colonial art, take a pisco cocktail masterclass from Belmond's resident barman or simply relax into a massage in the therapy suite. Lively Cusco and its central square are just on the other side of the hotel's historic walls, but its oxygen-enriched, whitewashed rooms - comfortably furnished with dark woods, gilt and a little hand-painted Peruvian flair - seem far from it.
