Hotel B: Relais & Châteaux hotel, near Playa las Cascadas

In the early 20th century, Barranco was a favourite vacation spot of the elite of Lima in search of fresh air and quiet.

Most of the great bourgeois mansions there have been converted into boutique hotels, as is the case of this beautiful Belle Époque summerhouse, part of the Relais & Châteaux group. Opening onto a delightful flower-filled patio, the 17 rooms, some with baths, are decorated in neutral tones, with much marble and exotic woods. The focus is on luxury codes and elegance of the highest order. On the walls, a rich selection of contemporary Peruvian artists is on display, including a signed José Tola fresco above the bar and large-format Andy Warhol prints, lent by the gallery Lucia La Puente. By late afternoon, the bar and the library are transformed into a salon frequented by the literary and artistic intelligentsia of Lima. Music by Mozart and Boccherini accompany your aperitif—ask the bartender for a pisco sour, among the best in town.
