My wife and I stayed there for 2 separate nights, interspersed by two nights at the Sanctuary Lodge in Machu Picchu.
As with other OE properties, Monasterio is unique in its own way. Superb accommodation, obsequious and discreet service, and excellent cuisine. Imagine our surprise when we entered the dining room for dinner to find a quartet, comprising a pianist, a flotist, a tenor and a soprano, entertaining us with classical and operatic performances, all in the setting of the original cavernous monastery refectory. It was absolutely spellbinding!
With special thanks to Hector and Alex, to mention only 2 of the wonderful staff.
Don't forget to visit the Inka Treasures jewelry store opposite the hotel's front entrance, (where we made purchases to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary).
