The Orient-Express has opened the doors of the Palacio Nazarenas, which joined the exclusive collection of Orient-Express hotels and trains in Peru. This prestigious boutique hotel, nestled in a former 16th century convent in Cuzco, is the result of four years of restoration. The Palacio Nazarenas has the latest technology including 55 suites with oxygen due to the altitude, overlooking the mountain Ausangate or the San Blas, one of the most picturesque areas of Cuzco. It also features the first outdoor infinity pool of Cusco and a gourmet restaurant overseen by Chief Virgilio Martinez. Guests can also relax at the Spa Hypn˘ze.
During archaeological excavations, architects and archaeologists discovered a multitude of Inca treasures displayed throughout the hotel. Other objects unearthed during the excavation of four years will also be exhibited in the library/museum of the hotel. Guests will also have the opportunity to attend sessions with a shaman (or medicine man), a wine steward or a historian who will reveal the many facets of Cuzco's history, art and culture.
To celebrate the opening of the hotel, Orient-Express has introduced a special offer allowing its guests to discover the Cuzco's gastronomy through the eyes of Chef Virgilio Martinez. Cooking classes provide the opportunity to discover the basics of cooking in the Andes. The offer also includes a three course dinner. The offer, 'Taste of Cuzco', is available all year from 400 euros per room per night, based on a three-night stay.
