A short walk from the unique cliffside mall Larcomar, Belmond Miraflores Park offers fantastic lofty views of the Pacific (be sure to book an oceanside suite, complete with a private plunge pool, for the best vistas). You can take to the fabulous spa that uses Amazonian products, or dive into one of the city’s most scenic rooftop swimming pools (yep, with more views). This being Lima, there are a plethora of top restaurants on the doorstep, but be sure to dine in-house at Tragaluz for Peruvian fusion food at its best.

Notching up almost a century as a hotel, the Country Club makes for a sophisticated stay in upmarket San Isidro. A grand Hispanic-style property set across acres of gardens, it’s also home to 300 pieces of art donated by Barranco’s Pedro de Osma Museum, ensuring all living quarters have their own personality. Those with big budgets should book the Dom Pérignon suite, but those on a slightly more slender budget can still drink in the good life with a Pisco Sour at the English Bar, where the now-ubiquitous Peruvian cocktail was first created, before dining out at Astrid & Gaston.

    If the artsy, bohemian neighborhood of Barranco could create its own grand mansion, this is the sort of building it would choose: romantic interiors and decorations that date back to the early 1920s, with large-scale art strategically placed to wow you and stop you in your tracks. Built in 1912 and designed by the French architect Claude Sahut, Hotel B was the first boutique hotel in Lima and remains the standard for all other hotels.

    This hotel has only four rooms, which ensures personalized attention from the hotel staff. Each is distinct, with its own feel and character, so selecting your room when you reserve is a huge decision. The boutique hotel was built in the early 1900s by the Italian architect Lidio Mongilardi and was later declared an historic monument by the Peruvian government. When you stay at Quinta Miraflores Hotel, you’re staying in history.

    Hotel de Autor is a creation unto itself: it’s not a boutique hotel, or an apartment – but more of a boutique house. And it’s in two incredible locations, both of which are in Miraflores. From the outside, they look like giant white mansions (which they actually are). The inside is tastefully decorated, similar to other boutique hotels, but here you have the entire place all to yourself. The location is great, right in the heart of this food-focused ‘hood, making you feel like a Lima local.

    Second Home was once the private casa of the Peruvian sculptor, Victor Delfin, and maintains the same artistic feel today. If you need some creative inspiration, take a walk through the garden, a dip in the pool, check out the view of the ocean, or maybe just wander around the eight-bedroom house. The inside is cast in a calming white, providing peace alongside the Pacific. All in all, there’s no location better than this, and the grounds are immaculate.
