Housed in a lovingly restored 1920s beach mansion, Villa Barranco is a beautiful intimate property in Lima‘s bohemian district, Barranco. Much of the original architecture has been preserved or resorted, including the original façade, ensuring the building remains true to the surrounds of the neighborhood, known for its traditional architecture and artsy feel.
Luxury Boutique Villa Barranco
The luxury boutique hotel recommended by Good Life Expeditions offers nine rooms and suites. All are en-suite, bright and airy and tastefully decorated with Persian rugs and an eclectic mix of antiques and contemporary art. Soft high-quality linens, air-conditioning, flat screen TVs and high-speed Wi-Fi are reminders of the luxury standard.
Each has a slightly different layout and size, keeping with the original plan of the building, rather than trying to achieve a cookie-cutter hotel room approach. On the first floor some rooms open onto the garden, and two of the junior suites offer a private balcony or terrace.
The showstopper is the expansive master suite, with a humongous bathroom with central freestanding bath-tub, and a spiral staircase leading up to its own private terrace in a separate tower. The perfect place to relax with a sundowner, admiring the ocean views.
Breakfast is served al fresco in the garden, and there’s a small dining room offering classic Peruvian fare with an international twist. With the feel of a stately home, there are lots of inviting nooks and spaces to relax in, perhaps curled up with a good book. The communal terrace offers comfy lounge furniture and a rooftop bar, serving up tasty signature cocktails.
