In the northern part of Cusco's historic centre, this divine all-suite hotel was once a colonial convent, since refurbished to its 17th-century glory amid fountains and fragrant terraces. Belmond Palacio Nazarenas delights in details, like its choice of handmade soaps hewn from local ingredients, the chapel gallery that is now a flawlessly decorated lounge, and 24-hour private butler service. More stunning still are its bedrooms: whitewashed stone, ornate antique wood furniture and balconies abound. Each suite has an oxygen-enriched air system to help guests acclimatise to Cusco's 11,000ft elevation, and a bar equipped with locally sourced and fresh ingredients for guests to mix their own libations.
Ask your butler how to create the perfect Pisco Sour - they'll teach you. The hotel's Senzo restaurant hones in on classic Andean dishes with a twist, while the Peruvian equivalent of afternoon tea is served in the secret garden. Perhaps best of all, it is also home to the city's first outdoor heated infinity-edge pool.
