Our top pick Cusco Hotel
Since its inauguration in 2010, Aranwa Cusco Boutique Hotel has quickly distinguished itself as a top choice in Cusco luxury hotels. Along with its sister hotel in the Sacred Valley (more info below), it ranked among the Top 25 Hotels in Peru in Trip Advisor’s 2013 Travelers’ Choice Awards.
Aranwa Cusco boasts an ideal location in the historic center of Cusco. It borders the quaint Plaza Regocijo, where travelers are spoiled for choice in restaurants, museums, shopping, and other attractions. Be sure to check out the Choco Museo, where you can learn about, sample, and make chocolate; and Chicha, the restaurant of Peru’s culinary superstar, Gaston Acurio.
Meanwhile, the Plaza de Armas, Cusco’s busy main square, sits just one block 2 blocks away. The hotel is housed in a well-preserved, lovingly restored, colonial-era mansion. Now a National Historic Landmark, it was the home of Alonso Pérez de Villarejo, Dean of the Cusco Cathedral in the 16th century; and it also belonged to the famed Cusco novelist Clorinda Matto de Turner at the turn of 20th century. Throughout the building, guests will be able to see architectural elements that were painstakingly preserved during the building’s restoration.
Aranwa’s interior spaces are equally fantastic, containing a treasure trove of art and artifacts, including original paintings, sculptures, and carvings from the Escuela Cusqueña (the Cusco School of Art) that adorn guestrooms and common areas alike.
Despite an emphasis on the historical, Aranwa Cusco does not skimp on the modern. Each of the 34 rooms and suites features an intelligent oxygen system that circulates extra O2 into the room – a welcome amenity at Cusco’s 3,400 meters/11,150 feet of elevation. In addition, bathrooms boast a spa concept, incorporating elements such as Scottish showers, either Jacuzzis or hot tubs, and heated marble floors for maximum comfort. In short, Aranwa Cusco provides the ideal setting in which to experience the magic of the historical Inca city in absolute comfort and luxury.
The Sacred Valley & beyond
Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness, situated 1.5 hours from Cusco and 30 minutes from Ollantaytambo, is perfectly located for an extended stay in the Sacred Valley of the Incas either before or after a trip to Machu Picchu.
At Peru For Less, we’re also excited about the opening of Aranwa’s newest resorts, Pueblito Encantado in the Colca Canyon and Aranwa Paracas Resort & Spa in the seaside town of Paracas 4 hours from Lima. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on any developments related to these and other Peru hotels.
