The prestigious luxury and lifestyle travel magazine Condé Nast (CN) Traveler once again asked their readers to vote for the Best Hotels in the World as part of the online magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2017.
And two of the 50 Best Hotels in the World, according to the readers of CN Traveler, where service, style, good eats, and sublime views make for a memorable stay, are located in Peru.
The Inkaterra La Casona in Cusco is placed 14th on the list of the 50 Best Hotels in the World. In support of this placement CN Traveler writes:
“Cusco’s architectural heritage of Incan stone walls topped with colonial white stucco is echoed in this 16th-century building on a square steps from the main plaza. With just 11 suites, La Casona has the intimacy of a private home, with a grassy courtyard encircled by rooms on two levels, though the building’s colonial charms come with smart modern touches such as iPods and iPod speakers. Inside, a grassy courtyard is surrounded by rooms on two levels. Owners Denise and Joe Koechlin have fussed over every antique- and craft-strewn square foot of the place, and exquisite pillars, retablos, and benches have been sourced from all over Peru, including Pre-Colombian textiles and murals. The excellent restaurant—don’t leave without trying the quinoa pancakes—delivers a generous helping of Andean hospitality.”
Following the Inkaterra La Casona, in 15th place of the 50 Best Hotels in the World the Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel in Aguas Calientes can be found. CN Traveler writes about the hotel:
“Village recreations can seem a little hokey, but this Inkaterra outpost deftly carries off the conceit. Set amid waterfalls and gardens at the foot of Machu Picchu, whitewashed casitas with eucalyptus beams are strewn along stone paths. Rustic rooms, lined with tile floors, are furnished with colorful Peruvian blankets, local art, and views of the gardens of the Vilcanota River, and manage never to feel tacky. But nature, not performance, is the real draw of this hotel: Amid its 12-acre grounds are 214 identified bird species, including the golden-headed quetzal, and the world’s largest native orchid collection (372 species) have been registered.”
