orientexpress

Orient-Express today announced that the brand’s latest and most ambitious project to date, Palacio Nazarenas, a 55-suite hotel in a former palace and convent in Cuzco, Peru, will open on June 12.

The inauguration of Orient-Express’ sixth hotel in Peru will be the culmination of a three-year restoration project carried out under the guidance of eight full-time archaeologists and the supervision of Peru’s National Institute of Culture (INC).



Palacio Nazarenas will become the sister property to Hotel Monasterio, a 126-room former 16th century monastery owned and operated by Orient-Express since March 1999.  These two properties reside on Nazarenas Square, just a few minutes by foot from both the Plaza de Armas, where Cuzco’s Cathedral and most important museums are located, and the bohemian San Blas quarter.
