Located in the quiet yet fashionable Miraflores district, an area famed for its excellent seafood restaurants, Miraflores Park Hotel is ideally positioned for discovering the hot spots of the up-and-coming gastro capital.
At the end of the Malecón, the cliff-top sea walk, the hotel is in a fantastic seaside location overlooking the Pacific Ocean and parks below, a view that many of the suites benefit from. There are 79 suites at this all-suite hotel, including Junior Suites with saunas and Presidential Suites with Jacuzzis, saunas, and some even have private plunge pools.
Being located in one of Latin America's gastro capitals (it may not be common knowledge, but believe us when we say it's true), the restaurants have to live up to scratch. Thankfully they do, with Mesa 18 by Torisho leading the way. Bringing a slice of Japan to Peru, Chef Toshiro Konishi creates innovative food combining Japanese flavour and techniques with Peruvian classics. There is also the Observatory Restaurant, which on the 11th floor next to the swimming pool, has a fantastic setting overlooking the Pacific on one side and Lima on the other.
As well as a heated outdoor swimming pool, there is a gym and the Zest Spa. The latter offers a range of treatments, many incorporating indigenous products from Peru and the Amazon.
In the heart of the Miraflores district, the hotel is perfectly placed for exploring Peru's capital. From its colonial architecture and superb museums to fantastic restaurants that are giving Lima quite a name for itself.
Those staying in Junior or Presidential Suites have the added luxury of a Bath butler, which pretty much does what it says on the tin - runs your bath. For an added dose of indulgence, have a massage while you wait before dipping into the rose-scented, candle-infused tub.
