Fodor's Expert Review Belmond Las Casitas

Fundo La Curiña s/n, Yanque, Arequipa, Peru Fodor's Choice

At the most luxurious property in the Colca area, with service and amenities to match, each thatched bungalow has its own outdoor terrace with a private heated pool, heated smooth-stone floors, and deep bathtubs beneath skylights for after-dark soaking and stargazing (though you can get an even better view from the outdoor showers). Rooms are bright and comfortable, with leather armchairs and wrought-iron beds piled with elegant bedding and harkening to days gone by. You can join cooking and pisco-sour-making classes, baby-alpaca feedings, and familiarization tours of the vegetable garden, and—for an additional fee—activities such as fly-fishing, horseback riding, hiking, and spa treatments can be arranged. The Quiriña restaurant serves creative Peruvian fusion dishes using vegetables from the garden.
