The beach city of Paracas, Peru (also known as El Chaco) has experienced a rise in tourism since becoming one of the country’s most desirable destinations with many unique attractions. The boom has caused hostels and hotels to sprout up all over the small town. And not just regular hotels – luxury lodgings have also popped up, offering some of the finest accommodations in the country. Here’s a look at the hotels that stand above the rest in the beach town of Paracas.
The five-star Hotel Paracas sets the standard for luxury hotels in the area. You’ll find rooms ranging from $300 to $500 a night, some which include private swimming pools and stunning views of the coastline. Their kitchen has been remodeled and the restaurant on their private pier rivals any for supremacy in Paracas. You can expect an infinity pool, quality amenities, and the best service you’ll find anywhere in town. One night here is more than worth the price tag.
As with any of their locations, you probably know what to expect from the DoubleTree Resort – and their Paracas location doesn’t disappoint. Each of their 124 suites features a terrace or balcony with views of Paracas Bay or the palm gardens. One highlight is the private beach, where you can enjoy the beauty of the bay in peace and quiet. And if you want the more chaotic Paracas beach scene, it’s only a short ride away. They also boast a spa and sauna if you need a bit of pampering after exploring the beaches.
With another location in Miraflores, this hotel chain is quite popular with Peruvians. What really makes them stand out against others is their extravagant pool. Wrapping around like a snake, you’ll have to go across it on a bridge to reach different areas of this 6,460-square-foot (600-square-meter) pool. With a spa, opulent rooms, and stunning views of the coastline, it’s hard not to pick this hotel.
Less expensive than the rest, Hotel San Agustín Paracas is a great bargain for a luxury hotel. They flaunt the fact that they are the only hotel in Paracas where all the rooms have a view of the ocean – so no matter which option you decide to go with, you have a view. The hotel also has a bar and restaurant that serves up all the Peruvians classics you’d want to try. With a massive pool, ocean views, and great pricing, Hotel San Agustín Paracas makes a difficult case to pass up.
