This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, with over 300,000 readers voting for their favourite hotel brands.
In an awards scheme that is brimming with hotels and cities of character, we are thrilled to announce that all five of our luxury properties have been included within three of Conde Nast Traveler’s prestigious categories: Best Hotels in the World, Top Hotels in South America and Top Resorts in South America. Not only are we extremely pleased to be acknowledged by Conde Nast Traveler, but we would also truly grateful to those of you who took the time to vote for us, thank you all!
The categories are as follows:
Inkaterra La Casona, our first boutique and Relais & Châteaux property in Cusco, has been recognised as fourteenth place in Best Hotels in the World and second place in Top Hotels in South America. Throughout the property, from the furnishings to excursions, our continuous aim is for guests to feel completely immersed in the culture and history of the surrounding area.
Built on the training grounds of an elite Incan army, the very roots of the property are infused with tradition. This is reflected in the presence of colonial furniture, handmade textiles and original murals all of which celebrate Cusco’s rich heritage.
We are equally pleased that our property Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel, nestled in the cloud forest, has been awarded fifteenth place in Best Hotels in the World and third place in Top Hotels in South America. A luxurious haven for those wanting to explore the Machu Picchu area, the proximity to the ancient citadel Machu Picchu is a key attraction for our guests, but a private tour of the site is not the only excursion on offer for our guests to enjoy. We are particularly proud of our Andean Spectacled Bear Programme whereupon guests are welcome to visit the real Paddington Bears and support a cause dear to the heart of Peru.
Our luxury eco-lodge in the heart of the Amazon, Inkaterra Reserva Amazónica, has been awarded sixth place and we are delighted that our adventure seeking visitors have taken the time to vote for us. As those of you have stayed with us will know, waking up at Inkaterra Reserva Amazónica is a truly unique experience, instantly being enveloped in the sights, smells and sounds of the rainforest.
In close footsteps of its neighbour, our second Amazon property, Inkaterra Hacienda Concepción was awarded seventh place. Consisting of 19 private cabanas perched majestically on stilts, and a six room casa grande complete with a rustic thatched roof, our guests are once again engulfed in the heart of the rainforest.
And last, but by no means least, we are delighted that our Sacred Valley property, Inkaterra Hacienda Urubamba has been awarded eleventh place in this prestigious category. Since opening in 2015, the property has gone from strength to strength and is celebrated for its tranquility, both in the interior and the surrounding area, that has made it a popular haven for our guests
Once again, thank you to everyone who voted for us in the Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Awards – we are thrilled and can’t wait to welcome new and familiar faces
