As the capital of Peru, Lima is the first city see after you arrive at the Jorge Chávez International Airport. Most travelers will spend a few nights in this South American city, either on the beginning or tail-end of Peruvian journey.
It’s a major coastal city on the Pacific Ocean, so there are dozens of luxury hotels in Lima. Thanks to a good exchange rate on the dollar, you can find top 4 and 5 star accommodations for budget-friendly rates. You’ll find plenty to do in this Southern American City of 10 million residents.
Probably Lima Peru’s Best Luxury Hotels
Having personally stayed at a couple of the hotels on the list, there are definitely pros and cons to each hotel’s location. There are several notable districts where tourists like to stay, including Miraflores and Barranco near the beach, or San Isidro, a vibrant business, residential and cultural center, as well as in the City Center. Some districts are walkable and connected, while others require very affordable taxis or ride sharing.
Because of the city’s large size and coastal weather, I recommend splurging on an upscale Lima hotel while in Peru. Because overcast days are common it’s nice to book a sanctuary for yourself to return to, rain or shine. And if you like the ocean, choose a hotel with a view for a sunset that’s hard to beat. The local surfing is pretty good too, so consider beach access when picking.
Here’s our curated list of the top luxury hotels in Lima, in no particular order:
