Relais & Chateaux takes first Peru Hotel

Cusco’s first luxury boutique hotel, Inkaterra La Casona, has been officially named a member of the Relais & Châteaux collection.

Since opening its doors 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. Its unmarked door, rustically lavish suites, authentic Peruvian décor & amenities, and impeccable service, have made Inkaterra La Casona 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 11th in South America—is truly a great honor.”

Secretly evaluated by one of Relais & Châteaux’s discerning traveling “critics,” Inkaterra La Casona will join the association’s roster of 475 hotels and gourmet restaurants in 57 countries.
