Casa Cartagena

Situated in Cuzco, the Casa Cartagena offers space and comfort creating an atmosphere unique in its style. The emphasis is on slick and modern design, cutting edge lighting, and decoration with the local architecture and surroundings. Sixteen elegantly appointed suites each feature central heating and air conditioning, butler service, internet, TV, DVD and Tatami shower and bathtub. An enriched oxygen system is offered to allow for better body acclimation to the altitude of the city on first arrival (subject to an extra cost).

The spa is equipped with an enriched oxygen system, a small hydro-massage pool, sauna, massage, and meditation rooms, where you will be able to enjoy aromatherapy, chromotherapy sessions, and other wellness treatments. The restaurant strives to offer an excellent gourmet selection of New Peruvian Cuisine and international courses. A perfect melange is created by choosing from the wine cellar's selection of over 200 worldwide known wines.

Casa Cartagena has been declared a Monument of Peruvian Cultural Heritage by the National Institute of Culture. It was built by the Inca Empire and modified during the colonial period, being always inhabited by ruling nobility, receiving its name during the 17th century, when it was inhabited by the "Encomendador" of Cusco, Don Fernando Cartagena y Santa Cruz, a member of Viceroy Blasco Nuñez de Vela's court.
