El Retablo Boutique B and B

El Retablo is Mountain Lodges of Peru’s newest and most colourful property. Opening from January 2017 – it is a two-story, 17-room boutique bed & breakfast that celebrates vibrant Peruvian traditions and the rich cultural heritage of Cusco.

MLP have resurrected and converted the historic building into a stylish small hotel, three blocks from the heart of the bustling capital, Plaza de Armas. Innovative, intimate El Retablo blends contemporary comfort with the customs of Peruvian artisans, taking inspiration from retablos - a sophisticated Andean folk art form with three-dimensional figurines in vibrantly coloured boxes.

The interior spaces have been hand-painted with intricate details by artisans from the Fine Arts School of Cusco. A spacious garden patio welcomes guests and the adjacent lounge, decorated with vividly stylised flowers, affords authentic Andean hospitality with traditional breakfast served daily.

Each of the ten Superior and seven Superior Deluxe rooms have a distinct design and include handwoven tapestries, luxury pillows and bed linens. Rooms can be configured as single, double or triple. Superior Deluxe rooms have views over Cusco.
