With its quaint image of mountain panpipers now taking a backseat, Peru has reinvented itself as a chic travel destination. Its Pacific capital teems with stylish bars and boutiques, its superb national cuisine is becoming more revered by the day, and its top luxury hotels are leaders of the pack in South America.
Of course, some things will never change, including the allure of Machu Picchu. To get up close and personal with the incredible Incan citadel, check-in to the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, the only hotel in the hallowed UNESCO World Heritage Site.
For yet more history, Belmond Hotel Monasterio in Cusco offers the chance to stay in a former colonial monastery built on Incan foundations. And before you fly out, reserve at least one night in Belmond Miraflores Park, located in Lima's trendiest neighbourhood. Each of our stunning partner hotels provide very different glimpses into this fascinating country.
