Belmond Miraflores Park

Surrounded by beautiful gardens on the edge of the Pacific, in the chicest area of town, Belmond Miraflores Park is the place to stay in Lima. With excellent service, elegant restaurants and a spectacular rooftop pool, it is the perfect base to explore Peru's fascinating capital.

Our week in Peru started in the capital city, Lima. Located on the Pacific coast, it was a perfect choice to begin the wind down from work to vacation-mode with its laid back, friendly atmosphere yet urban setting. Lima has a dry and mild climate and sprawls for miles with modern high rises alongside Colonial mansions from the 16th century. It is made up of 43 districts - some more thriving than others. We stayed in the Miraflores district at Belmond Miraflores Park which is directly on the bluffs overlooking the ocean. The hotel is ideally located to take advantage of Lima’s cultural and culinary offerings as you can walk pretty much anywhere or it’s a short taxi ride away. There’s a boardwalk right in front of the hotel that connects most oceanside municipals and makes taking a sunset stroll a great option.

Inside the hotel is a welcoming and impressive foyer decorated with a European flair for elegance and comfort and a gorgeous spiral staircase at its centerpiece. Almost immediately upon arrival I was drawn to the lobby bar where I was greeted by Andre the barman ready to give me a Pisco Sour lesson - pisco is Peru’s national drink which tastes like an excellent margarita made from fermented grapes. Careful, they can hit you faster than you can say Miraflores. As for our room, we stayed in one of the garden suites positioned solely on the fourth floor. It was an excellent choice; the room was not only spacious and had all the amenities for a relaxed and comfortable stay, but also hosts a private two-level garden terrace ideal for drinks or even a bit of yoga outside.

Breakfast is a full buffet served everyday in their rooftop observatory restaurant with views of the whole city and sea below. Must add being a coffee aficionado that theirs was sublime. This room with a view was a perfect way to start our one full day in Lima. Highlights if you only have a short visit are the Museo Larco - a must see private pre-Columbian collection at an old Colonial house filled with textiles and art displaying the ancient Americas history and the Inca culture in detail. Also there you’ll find a gorgeous cafe in their gardens where many locals choose to dine. We decided to have lunch at one of Lima’s best ceviche restaurants called La Mar, which was a fish extravaganza and completely delicious, followed by a long easy stroll on the boardwalk back to the hotel as the sun set right in front of us.

Dinner and drinks that night were in the district of Baranco - very cool and slightly more bohemian and again, walkable from the hotel. We only scratched the surface of this city but I definitely felt I began to understand this culture and history and was ready for more.
