Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the now restored Arennas provides quite the chic hangout at the end of Mancora’s beach.
The whole property is very open plan with a light and neutral décor. The muted tones and simple, yet sleek, furnishings echo through each of the 22 en suite guest rooms. All of which open out on to cosy terraces overlooking either the ocean or palm fringed gardens.
With trendy hotels on the up, Arennas is no exception to this revolution; guests can spend their days lounging around the swimming pool with house vibes playing in the background and pisco sours on tap.
If you can tear yourself away from your sun lounger, the hotel's restaurant serves an extremely impressive range of Peruvian and international dishes, including fresh lobster (in season) and yummy rice paper rolls. There is also a wine list comparable to the food menu and well worth a sample.
Whether you are a surfing or tanning aficionado, Arennas' prime stretch of beach is perfect for either. Alternatively might we suggest a spot of fishing or diving? Or maybe even a gallop along the shore?
Why we love it
A sunset champagne cocktail on your own private terrace is the most relaxing way to enjoy your Peruvian getaway.
