A den for sophisticated travelers, our bar invites you to relax amid its leather chairs, comfortable banquettes, wood paneling and oil paintings. Secluded nooks and light-filled window seats, as well as the noble wooden bar itself, are the ideal spots to indulge in an Old Fashioned or one of the sophisticated specialty cocktails prepared by our bar staff. As an added treat, why not brush up on your firsthand knowledge of one of the world’s favorite spirits with our world-class gin tasting? A pleasant way to end the day, indeed!
For millennia, people have intuited and felt the magnetic pull of these lands, where we are closer to the life-giving power of the Sun than any other city in the world. Here in the high Andes, at midday on the equinoxes and solstices, shadows are banished and there’s just pure light. It’s a truly special place, where ancestral knowledge is still very much part of our living culture, where we still feel a bond with the earth.
Our treatments celebrate this energy, the vast and varied biodiversity that surrounds us, the wisdom
of our millenarian cultures.
The use of our spa is exclusive for guests. Treatments can be scheduled through our concierge or by calling the front desk two hours in advance.
