Belmond has enhanced its Peru portfolio with the acquisition of Belmond Las Casitas in Colca Canyon and the launch of Belmond Andean Explorer, South America’s first luxury sleeper train.
The development marks progress on the company’s 2020 strategic growth plan and cements Belmond’s position as the leader of luxury travel experiences in Peru’s most exceptional locations.
Belmond Las Casitas, a 20-room property located in the Arequipa region of Southern Peru, is set amongst the tranquil beauty of the Andes. The intimate hotel fully matches Belmond’s brand personality – offering authentic escapes that relate to nature, culture and well-being.
Each individual casita features a private terrace with a heated plunge pool and sweeping views across the canyon. The Samay Spa, built around the energy of the canyon rock, offers treatments using natural ingredients from the hotel’s kitchen garden and hypnotic views of the surrounding canyon, inspiring deep relaxation.
