Decorated with 16th-century artwork and period furnishings, the 43 guestrooms and suites at Aranwa Cusco Boutique Hotel have individual charm, laden with sumptuous modern comforts. Cozy underfloor heating warms the marble, spa-inspired bathrooms, and your guestroom’s intelligent oxygen system will help you adjust to Cusco’s altitude. Suites come with a separate living area and a balcony, while deluxe rooms feature a deep Jacuzzi. Meanwhile, all accommodations lay out fine robes and slippers for days when your spacious home away from home is simply too comfortable to leave.
The dedicated staff is available around the clock, offering 24-hour room service, airport transfers, and guided city tours. There is also an expert concierge and a small business center, though the focus at this hotel is switching off and unwinding.
The dining experience at Aranwa Cusco Boutique Hotel reflects the city’s cultural diversity, as Mishti Mestizo Restaurant delights your tastebuds, offering a tantalizing menu of Peruvian classics with a touch of international flair. Begin your perfect evening at Khasikay Bar for a captivating selection of cocktails based on Peru’s favorite liquor — pisco.
Mishti Mestizo Restaurant – Traditional Andean dishes offer a rich, vibrant culinary experience alongside Mediterranean fare at eclectic Mishti Mestizo Restaurant. Try crispy causa (a potato-based dish topped with meat and vegetables) or lomo saltado (sautéed beef with vegetables) for a taste of typical Peruvian cuisine, or opt for ravioli pasta stuffed with favorite selections from the hotel garden. With tables lining the original 16th-century arched corridors and leading out into an open-air courtyard, the setting is as romantic as it is unique.
Khasikay Bar – Tasty tapas with a Peruvian twist complements the cocktails, fine wines, and beers offered at this ornately decorated bar. The relaxed ambiance serves as an ideal place to experience the sharp citrus kick of a Pisco Sour or, when the temperature drops, a hot red wine punch.
Start your stay sipping coca tea from the comfort of an ornate armchair in the lounge to acclimatize to the heady heights of Cusco’s above-sea-level location (11,152 ft / 3,399 m). Then peruse the hotel’s astonishing art collection — there are at least 300 pieces — taking in the intricate details of the historical sculptures and carvings, plus the permanent exhibition of gorgeous works by colonial artists of the Cusco School.
Outside the hotel, take a stroll to the city’s center to absorb its alluring blend of ancient history and modern culture. Wander narrow, cobbled streets, passing vast Inca-built walls, and see Marcos Zapata’s unique take on The Last Supper at the cathedral. The hotel offers guided city tours to help you navigate and discover the best shops, bars, and restaurants among the colonial arcades of the Plaza de Armas.
