Peru is a fantastic place to discover the mysteries and culture of one of the greatest ancient Empires, the Incas. The revered Belmond family of hotels, trains and cruises, is well represented in Peru and provides intrepid travelers with the highest levels of service and comfort throughout their travels. Your Peruvian experience with Orient Express starts with the colonial city of Lima where the Miraflores Park Hotel, located in the very exclusive district of Miraflores, is the ideal place for great food, varied shopping or just jogging around with a great ocean view.
Continue to the Hotel Monasterio, originally built as a monastery in 1592 in Cusco City, has now been converted into a luxurious property which retains the regal experience of being surrounded by culture and history. From here, embark on the famous Hiram Bingham train towards one of the new 7 wonders of the world, Machu Picchu.
Once there, at only steps from this ancient citadel, the Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge offers the most exclusive location to enjoy the sunrise, orchids, nature and great mountain views. While other trekkers must depart the sacred site at day's end, you and a select few other guests may remain.
