New Experiences: Resort Hotels in Lima, Peru.



Due to the fact that Lima beaches are either very close to the cliffs or quite away from the city center, most resort-like hotels here are located in the city, but focus in offering spa services that will allegedly make you feel you have left the noisy city behind.

And, in many ways, they succeed. Places like Hotel & Spa Golf Los Incas (located to the far east end of the city), JW Marriott (with an imposing view of the Pacific Ocean) or Westin (conveniently located in the middle of everything) can easily make you feel like you've escaped to another dimension where your only priorities are relaxing, pampering yourself and your loved ones, and adding new, pleasant experiences to your traveling.

Business people also need to relax during their so busy tours, and there's some resort-like hotels appropriate for them: such as Country Club Hotel or Sofitel Royal Park, both ofering spa ammenities and business facilities.

In fact, only one hotel (El Pueblo) is actually located outside the city, by the road that connects Lima to the Andes. However, the access may be a little difficult if you do not make transportation arrangements or if you are not part of a tour.

Country Club Lima Hotel


 

This old and traditional hotel used to be one of the most exclusive places in Lima during the 1950s. Nowadays it has lost to the city a lot of its original extremely large gardens, but preserves its achitecture, beauty, elegance, and excellent service, adding also all the services necessary for serving business people. Part of the fun, however, are the special promotions for weekends, where you can escape from the weekly routine, pamper yourself and have some fun taking at the social events hosted here, specially wedding receptions. Its restaurant and bar are top class, so if you are a foodie, this may as well be a good resort-like choice for you.

Radisson Hotel & Suites San Isidro

 

This hotel's location is very convenient for everyone, since it seems to be in the middle of the routes to almost anywhere in Lima: near Miraflores, near the Via Expresa highway, near large parks like El Olivar, near to the financial district, and also with a neasy access to Lima downtown and to Avenida La Marina, that leads to Callao Port. It's not a large hotel and thus the service is very good. Rooms and suites are spacious and comfortably equipped, and the hotel terrace is beautifully arranged, with a superb view at nights. Amenities include a Fitness Center, Business Center, wireless Internet access in all public areas, and on-site dining.

2
El Pueblo Resort & Convention Center

 

This is a place where you can actually forget about the city; located in Lima but far away from the city noise, its location in Santa Clara (over the "Carretera Central", the road that connects Lima with the Andes) makes this place a real escape from the city. The name, "El Pueblo" means "The Town", and this is what this country hotel looks like: its main attraction are its architecture and distribution, very similar to those typical, traditional Andean towns. A very kid-friendly place, and a nice experience during Lima's winter, since the weather in this area tends to be warmer and dryer. Ask for their all-inclusive promotions.

Hotel & Spa Golf Los Incas


 

Located on a hill, with a superb view of Lima, Spa Golf Los Incas is surrounded by both nature and the city. This Lima hotel is close to commercial centers, shopping malls and other places for entertainment. It also features apartment-style guestrooms fully equipped with kitchenettes, microwave oven, minibar, Internet connection, 32-inch LCD televisions with cable TV, washers, dryers and bottled water. But its main attractive is a beautiful view of the Golf Los Incas Club, right in front of the hotel. It is a great choice for running away from the city's noise and get some days of truly full relaxation.
