Cuesta Serena

Top choice boutique hotel in Huaraz

Out near the airport, this high-end hotel is a great place to stay to avoid the noise of Huaraz while remaining accessible to transportation and local attractions. The elegant rooms with subtle Peruvian touches are set in lovely manicured gardens, which offer fantastic views of Huascarán and its Cordillera siblings. The balance between luxury and homeliness is perfectly maintained.

Here you get welcome drinks, a glass-surrounded indoor pool, yoga classes, exquisite food and the refined air of a country retreat. Reservations, unsurprisingly, are essential.

The lodge is in Anta near the airport, 21km north of Huaraz.
