Just on the edge of sunny Paracas, a small fishing town and the launch pad for tours of the Ballestas islands is this stunning luxurious resort. Hotel Paracas is Good Life Expeditions’ top recommendation as a base for exploring the Ballestas islands, Paracas national reserve and other nearby attractions including the vineyards of Ica and the Nazca Lines.
From the moment you arrive, you’ll experience impeccable service, with the sit-down check-in, cool towels and welcome drink are a taste of what’s to come. The impressive lobby is decorated with Peruvian artwork and antiquities, leading out to the exceptional pool flanked by loungers and shaded cabanas and views out to the ocean.
Guest rooms are arranged around the property, and all offer a balcony or terrace, with ocean or garden views. Rooms are brightly decorated with modern beachy accents in blues and yellows. Amenities include air-conditioning, high-speed Wi-Fi, satellite flat screen TVs, minibars, electronic safety deposit boxes and high-quality music system with i-Pod docking stations. Bamboo is used for the headboards, and throughout the resort. Airy open bathrooms feature deep soaking tubs, separate showers and luxurious Gilchrist & Soames toiletries.
There are three restaurants on offer, two housed in the main building and a third, an ocean-front bar serving up fresh seafood al fresco. The cuisine on offer is modern Peruvian with Mediterranean influence, showcasing the incredibly fresh seafood straight from the Pacific Ocean.
Non-motorized water sports are complimentary, including kayaks and paddle boards. For families, there’s plenty to keep the kids occupied, with a separate family pool and a staffed kids’ club. For the grown-ups, the large hotel spa offers a range of locally inspired treatments, from quinoa facials to Andean mud wraps, along with a full menu of massages and beauty treatments.
