This week it was announced that Cusco’s first luxury boutique hotel, Inkaterra La Casona, has been officially named a member of the exclusive Relais & Châteaux collection. Since its opening in 2008, the restored 11-suite hotel—formerly a Spanish colonial manor house built over an Inca complex—has played an important role in revitalizing Cusco’s hospitality scene. With its unmarked door, rustically lavish suites, impeccable service, and authentic Peruvian décor and amenities, Inkaterra La Casona is the standard of hospitality in Cusco.
“We are very proud to have been selected to be part of such a prestigious organization,” said Jose Koechlin, Chairman and CEO of Inkaterra Hotels. “Relais & Châteaux represents the finest in hospitality around the world and for Inkaterra La Casona to be selected as the first member in Peru—the eleventh in South America—is truly a great honor.”
Secretly evaluated by one of Relais & Châteaux’s discerning traveling “critics,” Inkaterra La Casona joins the association’s roster of 475 hotels and gourmet restaurants in 57 countries.
