A Visual Journey

Take a closer look at the hotel and its beautiful surroundings.

Different. Better. Special.

Staying with us turns a trip to Cusco into an unforgettably unique escape. Here are just some of the features that make us stand out from the crowd.

Belmond Hotel Monasterio courtyard


The hotel’s pièce de résistance is its jaw-dropping symmetrical courtyard. Laced with walkways and flowerbeds, the most prominent feature is the towering 300-year-old cedar tree that sits in the middle.

By day, head to the courtyard’s cloisters and enjoy tea or a light lunch. Or take pen and paper, settle down by the central fountain and let the muses strike.

In the evenings the courtyard’s graceful arches are accentuated by beautiful lighting. When darkness falls, the illuminated arches make a sensational frame for the starry night sky above.
