A luxe clifftop perch in Lima
Belmond Miraflores Park stands tall and proud along the beautifully manicured Malecón clifftop park with impressive views along the coast and out at the Pacific Ocean. With this prime location in Lima's upscale Miraflores neighborhood, it’s one of the city’s most luxurious hotels.
The trendy clifftop shopping center Larcomar is just a few minutes’ walk away, as are some of the best restaurants in Lima, including the lauded Central.
With classic refined décor, the elegant all-suite hotel features 89 rooms spread across eight floors, attentive service and a club class executive lounge. The amenities include conference and event facilities, a stunning rooftop pool, gym and spa.
To tantalize your taste buds, the onsite Tragaluz Restaurant serves an exciting fusion of Asian and Peruvian flavors and the inviting Belo Bar crafts a pisco sour that rivals all others in the city.
The standard accommodations are the generous Junior Suites. At 484 square feet, they are the biggest entry-level room in Peru. With a spacious layout featuring neutral classic décor, large marble bathrooms and many rooms overlooking the ocean, it won’t disappoint.
Taking it up a notch, the collection of Club Class suites was redecorated in 2014 with a more updated contemporary character, featuring lighter furniture and clean lines. There are several categories with a range of luxe options and combinations, including private plunge pools overlooking the ocean in the Presidential Pool Suites, and saunas in the incredibly spacious bathrooms of the Deluxe Junior Suites.
One of our favorite services is the bath butler, who is on hand to concoct an inviting mix of salts and bubbles for the humongous Roman marble tubs nearly big enough for a full-fledged pool party.
The Club Class
Those opting for Club Class suites get exclusive access to the well-appointed executive lounge on the 10th floor, open 24 hours a day. The lofty retreat provides a comfortable space to relax and recharge. The food and beverage services include complimentary hot breakfast, lunchtime snacks, afternoon tea and tapas in the evening.
Club Class also includes a range of services, including its own private concierge, meeting space, Mac computers with printing capabilities, and showers for pre- check-in or post-checkout refreshment.
Perhaps the biggest wow factor comes as you walk out of the elevator on the 11th-floor rooftop. The heated outdoor infinity-edge pool has an incredible view of Miraflores below and straight out to the Pacific Ocean. The 56-foot pool is long enough do a few laps, or just relax and soak up the view.
Sharing the vista is the Observatory restaurant, where the Lima hotel’s grand breakfast spread is laid out, so you can enjoy the rooftop splendor from dawn till dusk. Conveniently facing west, it gives a front-row seat to the sunset — it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a sundowner and watch the tiny silhouettes of surfers bobbing on the waves, and the glistening reflection of the disappearing sun.
