Inkaterra La Casona is Cusco’s first luxury boutique hotel and the first Relais Chateaux property in Perú. It’s a colonial manor house centrally located in the Plaza las Nazarenas near Cusco’s present-day main square. This area, once an Incan settlement, was later occupied by the conquistadores of Peru and their descendants. The manor has11 suites surrounding a sumptuous courtyard where the patina of time is tastefully preserved. Contemporary amenities create the same ambience of comfort and exclusivity enjoyed by residents in centuries past. The hotel is surrounded by astounding Andean sceneries that offers complete relaxation and serenity; an oasis amidst the vibrant capital of the Incan empire. La Casona is the ideal destination to begin your discovery of the Andes area, with its villages, valleys, magic and mysticism.

History

La Casona has been restored using original techniques and materials. The manor was built in 1650, when the Spaniards started to rule the area with regular and linear geometry. Among its first occupants was a lieutenant of the Spanish conquistador Diego de Almagro. Later on, during the civil strife, the house was occupied by Juan Balza and Juan Alvarez Maldonado.

Environment

The company founded its own non-profit organization called Inkaterra Asociacion (ITA) in order to conserve the environment, ecosystems, cultural heritage and archaeological and natural resources and to maintain an ecological balance in the areas they work. Inkaterra Asociacion works to support Peru’s cultural identity and sustainable development. Part of Inkaterra´s profits are invested in the association activities.

Carbon Neutral

Inkaterra protects more than 17,000 hectares of original forest, thus helping to reduce directly 3,315,000 tons of carbon. This measurement – the first of this kind in Peru – was initiated 19 years ago by England University of Leeds and Institute for Earth and Biosphere.
