Located only 2 blocks from Plaza de Armas and adjacent to Plaza San Francisco, the Aranwa Cusco Boutique Hotel offers guests luxurious accommodations in an ideal and convenient location within reach of all the main attractions in Cusco. This converted colonial mansion is only a short walk from Cusco’s cathedral, 10 minutes by car from the airport, and 15 minutes by car to the most-visited archaeological sites in the city including Sacsayhuamán, Quenko, Puca Pucará, and Tambomachay.
The Aranwa Cusco Boutique Hotel is operated by Aranwa Hotels Resorts & Spas, one of the most luxurious hotel chains in Peru. Housed in a converted 16th century mansion, this elegant 5-star hotel is decorated with colonial-era furniture, impressive paintings from the Cusco school, and colonial gold leaf-plated carvings and sculptures.
Declared a National Historic Landmark, the former mansion once belonged to the Dean of the Cusco Cathedral, Alonso Pérez de Villarejo, and has one of the best-preserved façades in Cusco. Architectural enthusiasts will delight in the stunning baroque elements such as Corinthian columns typically found on the edifices of convents and churches. In the midst of this historic ambience, guests will enjoy the ultimate in comfort and attentive, personalized service.
Guests can also take advantage of the wellness spa which offers a variety of treatments combining European and Inca methods. On-site is a hair salon, steam room, dry sauna, and massage space. This focus on health and wellness is incorporated into every aspect of the hotel, including the décor. Common areas are warm and inviting with soothing elements like color therapy, aromatherapy, and music therapy into the design to keep guests relaxed. It is easy to understand why this hotel chain was named the most innovative company in the Cusco region by the Cusco Chamber of Commerce in 2010.
Not least, serving a delicious combination of Peruvian and Andean cuisine with a modern twist is the excellent multicultural Mishti restaurant. The chef pays special attention to both flavor and presentation to create a fine dining experience that is specially made for the international city of Cusco. As well, the understated yet chic Khasikay Bar has an innovative menu serving Andean-style tapas in addition to both national and international cuisine.
The Aranwa Boutique Hotel has 43 rooms and suites decorated in the traditional style of a 16th century mansion. Suites are elegantly decorated with tasteful artwork and feature a separate living room and balcony. The marble-floored bathrooms have large Jacuzzi-style baths, a Scottish shower, and heated floors to keep you warm on cold Andean nights. You can also indulge with the complementary organic bath products, bathrobes and slippers, and room climate control. As well, take advantage of the wireless Internet, satellite TV, telephone (national and international), iPod dock/CD player, minibar, electronic safe deposit box, hair dryer, and iron and ironing board in each room.
