Rooms at Belmond Palacio Nazarenas

Simplicity is key to Belmond Palacio Nazarenas’ 55 suites, with wooden floors, classic white walls and elegant furniture. Making your stay that little bit special, each suite comes with a personal butler to arrange wake-up calls, shoe shine and mix you a pisco sour from your very own in-room bar. All suites are oxygen-enriched, which you can turn on and off when you choose to help with the effects of altitude.
