The most famous of Cusco’s hotels and deservedly so, this beautiful former monastery which dates back to 1592 has been carefully restored and retains many original features and furnishings from its colonial past. There’s 126 rooms laid out around the large courtyard. Today there is luxury abound – why not ask your very own soap butler to draw you a bath?
The exquisite central courtyard with ancient tree and the sound of opera drifting in from the restaurant. Wow! Delicous breakfasts, too.
This really was the holiday of a lifetime and thanks to expedition leader Hannah and her fantastic team was it was a magical experience. The scenery and wildlife were breathtaking and the history of polar exportation, and my hero Sir Ernest Shackleton in particular was vividly, brought to life. To be able to follow his journey and pay my respects to him at his graveside in South Georgia was very emotional and something I will never forget.
