The tranquility of Plaza Nazarenas is sustained throughout this city retreat. Known by locals and visitors for being home to Cusco’s first outdoor swimming pool, Palacio Nazarenas has been beautifully designed and restored to achieve supreme comfort in a deeply historical setting.
The hotel is in a really special location in Cusco, just a stone’s throw from the Plaza de Armas and a short uphill amble to the cobbled streets of artistic and alternative San Blas. Next door is the Museum of Pre-Columbian Art, and beneath the Palacio’s understated white facade lies important Inca foundations and courtyards lined with indigenous plants.
Flowing water channels lead to an ancient fountain at the centre of Palacio Nazarenas. In a central cloister, the large outdoor swimming pool is framed by colonial arches and ancient brickwork. A hidden and exclusive spot to enjoy the fresh mountain air and glistening sun.
Enjoy the guest lounge and library in the restored chapel on site, and browse the many Peruvian artefacts treasured and adored. Learn to make Pisco Sours at the glass paneled Senzo Bar in the evening, overlooking the swimming pool and dine on Peruvian cuisine with a modern twist, with herbs and vegetables provided from the enclosed gardens surrounding.
All rooms in Palacio Nazarenas are oxygen-enriched to ensure that guests are as comfortable as possible in the high-altitude city of Cusco. Enjoy the luxury of a four-poster bed, a private terrace or balcony and bathe in a free-standing tub feeling the warmth of heated floors circulating the room.
