Inkaterra La Casona

Cusco’s first boutique hotel and first Relais & Châteaux, Inkaterra La Casona reflects the city’s mélange of cultures and traditions. A striking 16th century manor house was occupied by the first Conquistadores and their mestizo descendants. This national monument is now an exclusive hotel located in the beautiful Plaza de Las Nazarenas at the heart of the historical city. Inkaterra has meticulously created an 11-suite hotel that maintains the original design and architecture of the original manor. Guests will appreciate the patina of time and tradition seen in colonial furnishings and original murals that blend with lavish contemporary comforts

The Experience

Re-live traditions at Inkaterra La Casona to experience privileged exposure to Cusco’s hybrid history and the secrets surrounding its majestic past. Centrally located on the original Inca settlement and walking-distance from Cusco’s present-day main square, Inkaterra La Casona offers you access to lovely streets where you can enjoy the perspective, comfort and exclusivity of those who lived in the manor in centuries past.

Facilities

Inkaterra La Casona has been carefully equipped with modern comforts without sacrificing authenticity, capturing the sense of privacy and privilege shared by those who once lived there. The decoration incorporates baroque colonial furniture and grand Spanish splendor; adobe, plaster, tile, fire and water are the main design elements. Guests will experience the tranquility and repose La Casona once offered to illustrious travelers who visited in earlier times.

After being harmoniously restored by Inkaterra throughout five years, emphasizing its original architecture, Inkaterra La Casona reflects the encounter of cultures and traditions across centuries. Surrounding the main patio, its eleven suites are provided with chimneys, heated floors and extra-large bathtubs. Its halls are decorated with colonial furniture, Pre-Columbian textiles and original murals.

The Yacu therapy room offers bespoke treatments and, like the manor’s dining room, uses products derived from local sources. Those who sleep within the stone walls, beneath the exposed beams, gain a deeper understanding to the city’s cultural heritage.

Cusco

Meet and mingle with Cusco’s local people, mestizo architecture and traditions to explore the different chapters of the city’s history. Sense the Cusqueño pride in ancestral culture and notice also how inhabitants have assimilated to international influences. As you walk the cobblestone streets, appreciate both Inca and colonial monuments and observe how Cusco’s Quechua-speaking inhabitants merge with visitors who enjoy the city’s busy local markets and unique nightlife.To understand Cusco is to begin to understand the forces that make up Peru today.

    NEARBY RUINS

    Enjoy a private guided excursion through Cusco’s four main ruins:

    Explore Sacsayhuamán, which in Quechua means “satisfied falcon,” considered a religious and military significance. It is the most impressive ruin close to the city of Cusco, where the yearly Inti Raymi festival (Sun Cult feast) is celebrated.

    Then view the Puca Pucará, or “red fort;” thought to be a hunting lodge, this rock structure looks pink in some lights.

    Later visit Qenko, which means “zigzag” in Quechua — a ruin that consists of a large limestone riddled with niches, steps and carving, including zigzagging channels that gave the site its name.

    Finally, visit Tambomachay (Cavern Lodge), commonly referred to as the Baños del Inca or Inca baths. Tambomachay was a site for ritual bathing.

    AROUND THE CITY

    Visit the Cathedral, San Blas church and Koricancha. Begin this excursion with an intimate tour of the Cusco Cathedral and get to know this superb symbol of the city closely, including its 11 chapels, 1 vestry, 7 altarpieces and 1 lower chorus completely carved in Cedar from Cusco, more than 300 paintings, and a variety of carvings and sculptures. The highlight of all these is the Main Altar, covered entirely with layers of silver as well as the Silver Chariot, mounted on a pedestal, still used in processions during the religious festival of Corpus Christi.

    Then visit the church of San Blas, one of Cusco’s most picturesque communities. Finish your day with a visit to one of the most important temples in the Incan Empire dedicated to Wiracocha; Sun god or creator. Its former pre-Inca construction of adobe and unpolished quartz lasted until the 12th century and when the Incas took over, they called it Koricancha (“courtyard of gold”). The Church of Santo Domingo was built using the ruined foundations of the temple that were flattened by the Spanish in the 17th century and is a fine example of where Inca stonework has been incorporated into the structure of a colonial building.

    MARAS AND MORAY

    Enjoy a private guided trip to Maras Salt Mines and the circular terraces of Moray. On the way you will see some of the most scenic spots in the Sacred Valley. First, visit the ancient salt mines near the village of Maras, where salty springs emerge from the hillside and the Incas built terraces to capture the flows and harvest salt.

    Continue the excursion to Moray, where huge circular agricultural terraces were built by the Incas on limestone sinks served to plant various crops. It is said to have a cosmological significance, however, the Incas used the terraces as an agricultural laboratory to determine the optimum conditions for each species in varying altitudes.

    SOUTH ROUTE

    Start the journey by visiting the archaeological site of Piquillacta, which literally means “place of the flea”, 32 kilometers south east of Cuzco. The archaeological site was built around 1100 A.D. by the Wari culture, which is made of more rudimentary stone works than those of the Incas. It is the only pre-Inca archaeological site located in the area, close to a lake. Next, head to Tipon and its extensive Inca ruins, which include baths, terraces and irrigation systems still in use today, as well as a temple complex. From the ruins, it is possible to travel farther up to see more Inca constructions, roads and a deep irrigation canal. Finally head towards Andahuaylillas town. Once there visit its famous church know as South Americas “Sistine Chaple”.

    "Me gustaron los detalles, el cariño y la hospitalidad de los empleados, la decoración pensada para complacer."
    Ana María Arrarte

    "Thank you so much for getting us into the absolutely best boutique hotel we have ever stayed in anywhere in the world!!! Beats the Imperial Art Deco in Prague by the sheer attention to detail and the wonderful use of local artifacts. Also it was a very pleasant surprise to be greeted by the staff who knew it was my birthday (which I suspect may have been down to you?) - they have gone out of their way to make us feel right at home."

      This is “luxury” in the rainforest. You feel that you are in the heart of the jungle but pretty much every comfort is taken care of. Don’t get me wrong, you will come away feeling that you’ve had a great and very different experience, and will have learned something very worthwhile about the geography, wildlife and people. But if you want to rough it at a basic lodge and participate in projects then there are more appropriate( and cheaper) options.
      You arrive by 45 minute small speedboat trip from Puerto Maldonado at a very basic landing stage on the wide Rio Madre de Dios.
      Your cabana will be a small timber dwelling with large double bed with mosquito net, shower and dressing area and sitting out space with chairs and hammocks. The whole living space is enclosed by mesh screens to keep bugs out. It’s as well appointed as any 4 star hotel room. Electricity is turned off during the night and there’s no WiFi or phone signal. You will awake to the sounds of rainforest birds and possibly red howler monkeys.
      It’s a short walk from the cabanas to the main lodge where the excellent meals are taken and you can also get drinks etc. Beside the landing stage there’s an ‘eco centre’ where excursions are organised.
      These are an integral part of the experience and are not to be missed, although if the weather is bad you might want to adjust the programme. We particularly enjoyed the Lake Sandoval trip by boat, jungle walk and canoe ( see caiman, river otters, turtles, various birds and red howler monkeys), the trip to Hacienda Concepcion with explanation of medicinal plants, the treetop canopy walk and the night time river trip ( on which we were lucky enough to spot a Jaguar). Each excursion was as part of a fairly small group led by knowledgable English speaking guides who were from the Amazon region. They really work hard to make sure you see and experience as much as possible.
      We arrived with mosi-proof clothing and plenty of DEET but in September there weren’t too many mosquitos apparent. But better to be safe than sorry.
      The weather was wry hot, sunny and humid for the first couple of days but an overnight weather front brought rain and temperatures cold enough for coats to be needed in the dining room and the staff to put hot water bottles in everyone’s beds. No kidding!
      There is a luggage size and weight restriction on the boat to the lodge but it’s worth taking a small backpack as well to take out on excursions for waterproofs, water, sunscreen, insect repellent, binoculars, camera etc.
      All in all an amazing experience you will not forget and extremely well looked after by the lovely people. Adventurous young children could cope but teenagers would get more out of it.
