When thinking of Peru, it is likely the first things to come to mind are Machu Picchu, llamas and an overwhelming burst of colour and culture. However, on the northern coastline, Peru also has some of the most peaceful coastlines scattered with beautiful beaches. It is in this region that visitors can discover some truly luxurious properties such as KiChic…
This small, tranquil hotel is located on a private beach and offers guests an experience of ‘perfect balance’. Mixing traditional Peruvian touches and Japanese mindset, the overall focus is on peace, rest and relaxation – perfect for a luxury holiday. Natural materials such as mud, stone and wood have been used in empathy with the surroundings, resulting in a fluid and eco-friendly blend of building and beach. From this blissful base, guests can indulge in activities such as swimming, kite surfing, surfing, sunbathing and long walks along the golden sands. The luxury hotel also offers some exceptional experiences such as a ceviche tour, quad bike excursion and even a cinema under the stars. End each day at the hotel restaurants which serve locally sourced food, including ingredients grown on their own farm, such as fresh fish and vegetarian platters. Cocktail in hand, toes in the sand and a soft sea breeze, what could be better?
