Belmond Hotel Monasterio
The exquisite gardens of the Belmond Hotel Monasterio were, for more than three centuries, the playground of the students and religious who lived in the San Antonio Abad seminary school. You can still breathe that monastic life in the long corridors hidden under the stone arches that run through this 16th century Cusco jewel. The chapel attached to the hotel is a magnificent example of Cusquenian baroque where countless couples have been married and can also be used as an intimate event hall. Three nights a week, dinners at the Tupay restaurant are accompanied by the exquisite voices of a tenor and soprano from Cusco. DeliMonasterio Bakery was one of the first to sell cronuts covered with aguaymanto jam in Peru. Its crunchy breads make it worth coming back for. Luxury Experiences in Peru
Belmond Palacio Nazarenas
Two mermaids guard the heavy wooden door of the Belmond Palacio Nazarenas, a mansion that was the home of Francisco de Carbajal, “the demon of the Andes,” at the beginning of the Conquest and was converted into a beaterio in the 18th century. Its elegant rooms are grouped around seven patios where gardens with Andean flora and water channels are displayed next to Inca walls. The warm outdoor swimming pool at 3400 m.a.s.l. is a temptation that should be enjoyed at least once. For the curious, the library holds books that belonged to the beaterio de las Nazarenas; for gourmets, the Senzo restaurant prepares sophisticated dishes with a local touch.

Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado
More than one guest arriving at the Belmond Hotel Rio Sagrado is surprised by the blooming gardens and asks in fascination where did this dreamy little town come from, where all the houses overlook the forest, the mountains and the undisturbed Urubamba River. During the day you can grill and taste Pisco outdoors, go horseback riding, hike to archaeological sites or have a day of rafting. During the evening, the kitchen offers creations that include organic vegetables purchased from an association in Urubamba and native potatoes from the community of Patacancha. The hotel has a private train station for its guests, which in high season, goes directly to Machu Picchu. Luxury Experiences in Peru
Belmond Sanctuary Lodge
It is almost impossible to wake up late at the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, especially for those who the night before were fully aware that Machu Picchu is right next to the hotel. A good breakfast guarantees energy to tour the wonder of the modern world without setbacks. The most energetic will climb Huayna Picchu and challenge the most mind-blowing abysses of the Incas, others will walk to Inti Punku, the Inca portal through which those who complete the four-day route known as the Inca Trail arrive to await the sunrise. Not a few, moved by such beauty, use the lush gardens of the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge to get married and have the surrounding apus (sacred mountains) as witnesses. Luxury Experiences in Peru

Its restaurant, overlooking the rushing Urubamba River, offers a menu of Peruvian food with contemporary touches and a wine cellar with more than 90 high-end labels. The lodge also offers a relaxing and spiritual experience at the Unu spa, which uses natural products and combines classic treatments with a mystical Andean approach. Luxury Experiences in Peru
The first luxury train with overnight stay in South America travels for 3 days and 2 nights through Cusco, Puno and Arequipa. After leaving Cusco, the countryside takes over the windows and we leave behind villages such as Oropesa, land of bakers, and the Huacarpay and Urcos lagoons. After a stop at the archaeological complex of Racchi, the landscape begins to change and the mountains shrink to give way to the plains of the Collao plateau. You enter Puno after an incredible sunset on the shores of Lake Titicaca. The next day, we sail to the floating islands of the Uros and the weaving island of Taquile. The train dawns at the Saracocha lagoon, in the morning you visit the cave paintings of the Sumbay caves and lunch is in the pleasant city of Arequipa. It also has alternative and shorter routes of, for example, 2 days and 2 nights (Arequipa – Puno – Cusco) and 1 day and 1 night (Cusco – Puno or Puno – Cusco). Luxury Experiences in Peru
Passengers traveling to Machu Picchu on the Belmond Hiram Bingham are possessed by the spirit of the men who in the 16th century sought “El Dorado” through these lands, as the luxurious carriages-inspired by the elegant rail service of the 1920s-enter the lush jungle. The brown waters of the Urubamba River compete with the swaying train carrying a Peruvian party in its observatory car. Lunch on the way out and dinner on the way back are settled in the dining car. Drinks are unlimited in the bar car. The service includes a professional guide who accompanies passengers throughout Machu Picchu and, when the excitement has subsided, tea can be taken at the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, the only hotel next to the monument.

The Pacaya Samiria National Reserve is called the jungle of mirrors because when the clear sky is reflected in the dark waters of the river, it is difficult to distinguish which side is the reflection and which side is reality. In the waters of this mysterious jungle, boutique cruise ships sail into the nooks and crannies of the flooded forests to get a closer look at the endless flora and wildlife. Aqua Expeditions’ elegant Aria Amazon is a 16-suite ship where you can enjoy a culinary experience created by renowned chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino; on the other hand, Delfin Amazon Cruises, the first cruise ship in the world part of the Relais & Chateaux association, offers three vessels: Delfin I with 4 exclusive suites, Delfin II with 14 suites and the new Delfin III with 22 suites.
The trips, on both vessels, include activities such as wildlife watching, canoe or kayak trips, fishing, jungle hikes, visits to communities, swimming near pink dolphins, picnics on the beaches, among others. Luxury Experiences in Peru
Belmond Las Casitas
Four hours from the city of Arequipa there is a valley composed of multiform terraces that, from a distance, look like a blanket made of small patches of green and yellow. In this remote realm inhabited by the Collaguas and cabana villages hides a hotel of 20 discreet little houses and 14 hectares, bordering the abysses of the Colca River canyon, one of the most sought-after adventure destinations in the world and a nesting place for condors. Guests at Belmond Las Casitas can spend the day touring the bio-garden that supplies the restaurant, reading a book from the library, visiting one of the nearby villages or enjoying an afternoon at the spa.

MADRE DE DIOS
Inkaterra Hacienda Concepción
On the banks of the Madre de Dios River is Inkaterra Hacienda Concepción, an ecolodge with 6 rooms located in the big house and 24 independent cabins that is the starting point to get to know the most intimate secrets of the Tambopata National Reserve. Local bilingual guide-explorers lead excursions that ensure direct contact with jungle life, such as a boat ride on the private oxbow lake, a visit to the botanical garden, an excursion to Sandoval Lake, home to caimans, turtles and a large family of giant otters, or the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway, among others. The personalized service of the lodge ensures a unique experience in one of the most biodiverse jungles on the planet. Luxury Experiences in Peru
Titilaka is a three-story hotel that stands alone on a small peninsula between two beige sand beaches. The intense midday sun encourages some guests to dive into the cool waters of Lake Titicaca, others head to the boat house and choose from kayaks, Canadian canoes, stand up paddle boards and sunfish sailboats that can easily reach the nearby islands. In the restaurant, chef María Fe García proposes a creative cuisine where local products and harvests from her organic garden predominate. Titilaka offers other interesting activities such as a visit to the archaeological complex of Sillustani, bike rides, birdwatching and an interesting circuit of colonial churches. Luxury Experiences in Peru
When Pedro Miguel Schiaffino visited the prodigal Belén market in Iquitos, he was so fascinated by the diversity of Amazonian products that he spent five days researching the ingredients, asking about the producers and learning about the types of cooking. Schiaffino’s trips to the jungle have been repeated so many times that he now calls himself an Amazonian researcher and, in order to delve deeper into this unknown pantry, he created ámaZ. The restaurant offers traditional dishes such as juane de gallina made from rice, inchicapi-soup made from regional chicken, peanuts, corn and yucca, and patarashca cooked in bijao leaves and grilled with sweet chili, achiote and sachaculantro. Luxury Experiences in Peru
Astrid & Gaston
When Astrid Gutsche and Gastón Acurio opened the restaurant Astrid & Gastón in 1994, they offered a French menu that they were sure would seduce Lima. It took a few years before Acurio realized that there was, under his nose, an endless national cuisine, and he became its main promoter. The restaurant’s menu presents periods and places of that cuisine that Gastón and Astrid fell in love with, such as a tasting of three cebiches from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, or a cuy dim sum, that fine Andean meat. It is a proposal that goes through the multiculturalism of the capital of Peru. The restaurant is located in the lavish Casa Hacienda Moreyra, the oldest in the district of San Isidro and an emblem of Lima.
The Alturas tasting menu at Central restaurant offers a journey of flavors that begins in the rich larder that is the Peruvian sea; goes up to the cold heights where native potatoes, oca and maca are grown, and the lakes offer the tasty cushuro; and ends with secrets of the lush jungle such as aguaje, copoazú and goldfish. Central’s chef, Virgilio Martínez, travels Peru collecting unique products through Mater Iniciativa, a biological research center that develops the sophisticated dishes of his restaurant and aims to revalue Peruvian food by searching its deepest roots.
Chiclayan (Lambayeque) cuisine is based on the rich harvest of cherry peppers, Pacora loche and culantro from Íllimo; on delicate fish such as murike grouper and guitarfish, and on tender goats fed on the fruit of the carob tree. Chiclayo chef Héctor Solís’ family banquets were family feasts where a variety of delicacies were served and inspired him to open his restaurant in Lima. There he serves, to the delight of his diners, legendary dishes such as hot cebiche cooked on natural charcoal, kid chirimpico, skate omelet, espesado and the ever-present rice with duck, a mainstay of Peruvian gastronomy.

La Mar Peruvian Cebichería
The first inhabitants of Lima arrived 10 thousand years ago and built small villages in front of the sea in Ancon, Santa Rosa, Ventanilla, Chucuito, La Punta and Chorrillos, to feed themselves with fish and seafood. A 17th century chronicler said that fish in the port of Callao was “abundant, cheap and free”. In spite of the fact that today fish is neither abundant nor cheap, its best exponents can be found in the showcases of La Mar, a contemporary cebichería that presents a menu that begins with classic cebiches, tiraditos and causas, continues with hearty fried dishes such as jalea and magical soups such as parihuela, and culminates with rice dishes with marine flavors and whole fish cooked over firewood, steamed or stewed.
The children of Japanese immigrants who arrived in Peru at the beginning of the 20th century taught the people of Lima to eat cebiche with seafood, cooked fish with techniques that no one else knew and created countless dishes such as chita a la sal and tiradito. This common culinary effort between Peruvian and Japanese is known as Nikkei cuisine. Chef Mitsuharu Tsumura presents in his restaurant Maido a daring interpretation of Nikkei: his tasting menu is made up of small works of art – in which the refined Japanese technique shines – inspired by emblematic products and flavors of Peru and Japan. Luxury Experiences in Peru
Pedro Miguel Schiaffino is another Peruvian chef who studied abroad (United States and Italy) and, upon his return, fell in love with Peruvian flavors. His travels along the sea, coast, highlands and jungle captivated his senses and committed him to cook respecting the seasons and working with local communities, fishermen and artisans. His menu features unique dishes such as sea urchin tamale, exotic dishes such as smoked paiche with red fruit sauce and pituca muslin, and reinvented classics such as roasted kid in carob juice and roasted pumpkin. Malabar’s assorted bar has won numerous awards and at night, its bar is among the liveliest in Lima. Luxury Experiences in Peru
The Peruvian steakhouse has not yet written its most glorious pages, however, it is making a brilliant effort at Osso, a lauded artisan butcher-restaurant run by Renzo Garibaldi, who fell in love with meat after taking a few classes with master butcher Ryan Farr; He then traveled for three years to San Francisco (Fatted Calf), Gascogne (Baradieu Farm) and New York (Fleisher’s) learning about anatomy, cuts, smoking, charcuterie, grilling, and what it means to work with the utmost respect for animals. On his return to Peru, he opened a butcher shop and made auspicious experiments in maturing national meat and grilling cuts, which caught the attention of specialized critics and famous diners in America. Luxury Experiences in Peru
Chef Rafael Osterling seeks to create timeless dishes, that is, dishes that do not lose their magic over the years and always evoke fond memories. In that sense, his regular customers are the most enthusiastic when a new menu is presented because they love Osterling’s fresh and daring cuisine; however, from time to time, they return for the traditional grilled shells with lemon butter and crispy garlic, the green tagliatelle with wild mushrooms and the mellow rice with northern duck braised in black beer.
