Hotel conglomerate Starwood Hotels & Resorts has launched a new property in Cusco, Peru.

Officials from the firm announced last week the Palacio del Inka was fully operational after a major refurbishment, marking a significant step amid efforts to expand Starwood’s presence in the South American market.

An official Starwood Luxury Collection Hotel, Palacio del Inka is owned by Libertador Hotels, Resorts & Spas and has been completely redesigned to reflect the splendour of the country’s ancient capital city, officials said in a statement.

Starwood’s co-president of the Americas, Osvaldo Librizzi, told the media that the new Cusco property brings the firm’s total number of Luxury Collection properties in Latin America to 11. He went on to add that the company was “honoured” to bring on the newly designed Palacio del Inka, which he said encompasses centuries of culture and history.

The Inka in Cusco property is situated adjacent to the renowned ruins of Koricancha. The refurbishment effort lasted nearly two years and saw investment of nearly $15 million (£9.76 million), according to the press release.
