Colors of Peru: Comfort Style Travel

Lima Hotel - Second Home

Located in the bohemian seaside barrio of Barranco, Second Home is also the home and studio of renowned Lima artist Victor Delfin; in this eclectic home come guesthouse artworks fill the spaces and views of the ocean complete this very arty outlook.  Best of all, Second Home is just a short walk from the atmospheric cafes and galleries of Barranco.  A perfect place to start your exploration of the Colors of Peru. 

Cusco Hotel
- Casa San Blas

Tucked off an alleyway in the heart of the artisan neighbourhood of San Blas, Casa San Blas has beautifully appointed rooms with natural colors – and our favorite – textiles! The top terrace opens out over the rooves of Cusco and you get a wonderful view of this city that was once the capital of the Incas.

Sacred Valley
Hotel – San Agustin Monasterio de Recoleta

Located on the outskirts of Urubamba, in a community called Chichubamba, this beautifully restored 17th Century Franciscan Monastery and convent is extremely atmospheric. There are two parts to the hotel – rooms gather around the Cloister which includes tiles from the original building and decorated with artefacts from the church and other relics, and a new part with flower filled gardens. With views of the Sacred Valley Mountains, and large gardens this is most definitely a place to relax.  

Aguas Calientes Hotel - 
 La Cabana

This is an old style, small hotel in busy Aguas Calientes, and the town that has grown up to service visitors to Machu Picchu. La Cabana is well reviewed, with small well-appointed rooms and a friendly atmosphere.  It is located at the top of the hill so requires some uphill walking to access.

Lima Hotel
-  B Barranco

Located in a recently restored upscale mansion in bohemian Barranco, this is quite possibly the best upscale boutique hotel in all of Lima.  In keeping with Barranco’s reputation as an artist’s neighbourhood, each room is decorated in a unique way, with funky artworks abounding!  An excellent restaurant and amazing attention to detail, Hotel B is a special start to your Peru trip.

Cusco Hotel - Casa Cartagena

Ultra-modern chic meets the Andes in this funky Italian designed hotel housed in an old Cusco mansion. Each room is different with unique touches. Located just off Plaza Nazarenas this stunning property is in the heart of the action in central Cusco. Without a doubt a one of Cusco’s most spectacular luxury properties, Casa Cartagena is the perfect base - have a good rest, and then explore the next day.

Sacred Valley Hotel – Sol y Luna

The name of the hotel means sun and moon, and these casitas in the heart of the Sacred Valley win our hearts for many reasons. Firstly, they run a range of social projects, and by staying with them you automatically give back.  Secondly, much of the decoration has been done by a Lima artist…. and is very memorable, quirky and fun!  This really adds to the atmosphere of the hotel.  Finally, the casitas, secluded throughout the property and amongst lush gardens and the casitas are decorated with a Peruvian style, and yet have all the modern amenities.  A simply superb place to get away from it all and unwind.

Aguas Calientes Hotel
– Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel

This is a truly amazing property, built almost organically amongst the jungle that surrounds the citadel of Machu Picchu – there are a range of rooms, but no two rooms are alike, almost built into their surroundings and yet standing out with their whitewashed walls. The Inkaterra hotels are well known for their environmental initiatives, and fine food.  The Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel is a world unto itself, and in a class of its own.  One of our long time favorites.
