Lima: 5 Places to Stay
Miraflores Park Hotel
The Miraflores Park Hotel is located in a quiet corner of the Miraflores district, at the end of the Malecón, the cliff-top seawalk that meanders above the Pacific Ocean. Rooms offer a lovely view of parks and the ocean below. This small, five-star hotel part of the luxury Orient-Express group features a top-notch bar and fine dining. The restaurant, Mesa 18, combines Peru's expansive cuisine with international fare. Once you enter this oasis, it's easy to forget you're in the middle of a metropolis of nearly 9 million people.
Room to Book: All the rooms in this hotel are suites, from junior to presidential. You really can't go wrong.
Insider Tip: Book a treatment at the Zest spa, on the 11th floor, which has the added soothing effect of an ocean view; also up here: an infinity pool with equally stunning views. If you don't want to leave your room, call the "bath butler," who will draw you a luxurious bath with your choice of bath salts and soaps in the privacy of your suite.
