This sprawling, salmon-pink colonial style hotel sits in a lovely parkside location, fifteen minutes from the main sights in Arequipa city.

Butterflies float through the flower-filled gardens, the hotel has the largest (and loveliest) pool in Arequipa and the fuming cone of El Misti volcano can be spied at every turn.

Rooms in warm ochres are furnished with antiques. Public spaces include a regal lilac living room with ample sofa space, a spa with a steam room and sauna and the Los Robles, serving classy Peruvian food. It’s one of the best restaurants in the city.

The hotel is family-friendly with a playground, kids activities and resident alpacas.

Surrounding area

Stays here are all about tranquillity; the hotel sits next to the Chili River and is surrounded by lush private gardens.

Directly opposite the hotel, the Juan Pablo Vizcardo y Guzman park – the largest green space in the city – gives the neighbourhood a calm, peaceful feel.

Downtown Arequipa – where you’ll find the best restaurants, and the Santa Catalina monastery – are a 20-minute walk.
