Finding Luxurious Hotels On A Peru Tour

Peru’s luxury travel industry has grown swiftly over the recent past, especially in the two largest cities; Lima and Arequipa. As in the rest of South America, visitors can experience the very best high end hotel accommodations.


When it comes to finding yourself in the lap of luxury in Peru’s capital city of Lima, there’s no question that Miraflores Park Resort is where it’s at. A great thing about being at the hotel is that idea that there is close proximity to water as well as popular shopping and dining spots. The property belongs to Orient-Express, a name you’ll quickly learn if you are a luxury traveler. The company Orient Express has two fantastic hotels in Cusco, a state of the art place in the Sacred Valley, a great hotel and the just one that is there at Machu Picchu’s archeological site and what’s more they also have in their arsenal a wonderful European styled train service named as Hiram Bingham operating between the archeological site and Cusco.

Another top choice in Lima having a much different feel, is the Country Club Lima hotel. Located in San Isidro which is close to Miraflores, this is an elegant hotel dating from 1927. All the environment here is quite classic styled which is pretty different from other deluxe 5 star hotels in Lima where you get all of the modern hotel facilities. Beds are large and cozy, there are three presidential suites and you’ll be able to take advantage of the golf course across the way if you so desire. Dining services are also fabulous and most of the guests prefer dining via the hotel’s award winning restaurant when there are no outdoor routines to be pursued.


Surprisingly, for such an upscale kind of city, there are not a lot of choices in the deluxe category. Strictly speaking you’ll find two main options, namely, Hotel Libertador and the Casa Andina Private Collection . The Casa Andina is built on a national historic landmark dating from 1794. It’s an absolutely stunning property where you will feel like you are in the midst of history. To make the most of the character here, be sure to ask for a room in the old section rather than the modern one. Another benefit of staying here is the vicinity with Catalina Convent, that’s one of the areas loved by visitors and also due to the fact that the main square is just 3 blocks away. Casa Andina also possesses one of its Classic hotels here so make sure you are booking the Private Collection if you’d like the luxury experience.

The Libertador is a large and completely modern property. Situated just 5 minutes from the main square, it is the city’s sole 5-star hotel. Apart from the luxury within the rooms there are numerous other facilities such as gym, Jacuzzi, sauna and swimming pool for the guests. You’ll be missing the colonial elements of Casa Andina but apart from that there are all the facilities that you expects from a luxury hotel. For visiting the plaza one has to walk some distance but there are some great views to be observed from the terrace itself without the need to visit anywhere.
