An ancient palace and convent were carefully restored to provide a sensual oasis in historic Cusco. Steps beyond the lobby, a central courtyard preserves an ancient fountain. And beyond that, the modern annex boasts a beautiful outdoor pool. Other terraces are filled with flowers and herbs that are used both in the kitchen and in the spa. The former convent chapel is now a guest room with a second-floor library displaying artifacts. Butler service is included with each stay.
