Top 10 Most Romantic Peru Hotels
Breathtaking Pacific beaches. Hip cosmopolitan cities. Steamy Amazonian jungle. A magic train trip. Whether it’s luxury, far-flung solitude, or an all-out adventure that ticks the box for your romantic getaway, Peru has you covered. With everything from wild jungle retreats to deluxe city country clubs, here are some of most honeymoon-worthy Peru hotels.
1. Country Club Lima Hotel
The go-to resort for rockstars, movie legends, and politicians since its opening in 1927, this is one of most prestigious Peru hotels. Country Club Lima is all about sophisticated, colonial-era decadence: think a Hollywood style red-carpeted entrance, a high-ceilinged lobby decorated with hundreds of original 16th-century paintings, and enormous flower arrangements dotted throughout. Both standard and presidential suites come decked out in luxurious decor, including crushed-velvet chaises longues and grand marble bathrooms with double sinks, soaking bathtubs, and rainfall showers.
2. Explora Valle Sagrado
Nestled among Incan terraces of corn and quinoa between Cusco and Machu Picchu, Explora Valle Sagrado is the Sacred Valley’s best-kept secret. Whilst the majority of Cusco’s visitors whizz through the valley and head straight for Machu Picchu, the Explora encourages tourists to explore the stunning, lesser-known corners of the valley—through personalized, guided activities such as riverside bike rides and hikes amid snowcapped peaks. Priding itself on understated luxury, the Explora’s rooms are decorated with floor-to-ceiling windows, unvarnished wooden floors, and a couple’s whirlpool Jacuzzi bathtub.
3. The dolphin
It is probably the most spectacular Peru hotels. Sailing the Amazonian immensity in this luxury boat will make you feel all the magic of this untamed area, while enjoying the comforts of a 5-star hotel.
The Amazon Cruise Dolphin is made up of a fleet of three boats. The first (the most romantic of the three) has only four suites. Each of these has a huge private terrace, a double bed, living room, and air conditioning. In addition, two of the suites have a jacuzzi. The decoration is modern, but authentically Amazonian.
Lazy bears, monkeys and an anaconda are some of the animals found in the jungle. Three types of dolphins live in the river and lakes that you will navigate, including the well-known pink dolphin, which can only be found in these jungles; and freshwater manatees. All of them will try to play with one if they detect it by crossing the tributaries in kayak or paddle, which can be used at no additional cost.
The bar is also generous. The most classic wines and cocktails are included in the tour. But the level of the kitchen draws attention. Of course, there is no WiFi in these areas almost untouched. So pack a swimsuit to swim in the river and enjoy the disconnection next to your favorite person.
4. Inkaterra Reserva Amazónica
Inkaterra is an eco-luxury lodge located in front of the Madre de Dios River near the beautiful Tambopata National Reserve. The large, lush grounds include 35 chic wooden cabanas, which—with their spacious, white-linen-and-bamboo-wood rooms, swinging hammocks, and refreshing plunge pools—are some of the most luxurious you’ll find in the Amazon. Highlights include their romantic sunset cruise along the Amazon River and the Inkaterra Canopy Walkway, a private 30-meter-high (100-foot-high) bridge system that gives guests the chance to spot howler monkeys, sloths, and toucans. For honeymoons, rooms are decorated with thoughtful romantic touches such as rose petals and a bottle of bubbly.
5. Belmond Las Casitas
Belmond Las Casitas, which effortlessly combines the impressive and inspiring natural environment, is the best hotel in the Colca Canyon, located 166 kilometers from the airport of Arequipa. A stay here feels far removed from the stress of everyday life. Each of the 20 individual cottages has a terrace and a whirlpool tub.
If you see this beautiful destination, you can take walks through the canyon, Peruvian horseback rides or bicycle and, if you are lucky, you will see the impressive Andean condor in the beautiful mountain sky. But if yours is to disconnect from the city to rest, make the most of your stay relaxing by the pool, renewing energy in the spa or simply reading a good book in its attractive library, which has a wonderful collection of fiction and non-fiction.
For couples who enjoy an adventure and disconnect destination, Belmond Las Casitas in the Colca Valley offers a special package of one night accommodation in a Double Casita overlooking the valley, breakfast for two, activities at the hotel, Bath Butler Romantic (decoration with candles, flowers and bottle of sparkling wine in the private heated pool of the house) and 30% discount in the Samay spa for S /. 616 (price per night).
6. JW Marriott El Convento Cusco
Like most Marriott hotels, El Convento Cusco oozes luxury and sophistication. What really makes this property special, however, is its history. Housed in a former 16th-century convent, the hotel boasts original cobbled floors, grand stone archways, and hundreds of Inca and pre-Inca artifacts. Coupled with modern design touches and top-class amenities—such as Swarovski-encrusted chandeliers, contemporary Peruvian art, and one of Cusco’s only hotel pools—the J W Marriot El Convento is undoubtedly one of Cusco’s most decadent hotels. Just a five-minute walk to the city’s Plaza de Armas and with easy access to the region’s most popular sites (such as Machu Picchu and Rainbow Mountain), this is a great option for couples looking for luxury whilst being on the doorstep of adventure.
The Kichic Hotel, located in Las Pocitas, Mancora, is made of stone, wood and clay, inspired by the ancient local construction techniques. It is a unique refuge that receives those who seek to relax and discover new sensations, and wish to put aside their daily routines, to find peace and connection with themselves.
KI comes from ancient Japanese philosophy and the synonym of energy, vitality and universal strength. CHIC is an international expression that indicates elegance, style and class. The combination of the two perfectly defines our resort and its spirit.
It has nine rooms, all built with local building materials. Each of them has a unique personality, which manifests itself in the design. And of course, in the search for balance between water and land, Kichic has created two excellent cuisines: vegetarian bar and fish.
8. Huacahuasi Lodge
Hidden among the lush, misty hills of Peru’s Lares region, locally run Huacahuasi Lodge is currently the only hotel in the area, meaning only one thing: complete seclusion. Each beautifully decorated room (think handwoven Inca textiles with a touch of modern, chic design) has its own private terrace equipped with a couple’s hot tub, which overlooks the waterfall-dotted valley gorge. Thoughtful touches such as a warm towel on arrival and a hot-water bottle and herbal pillow in your bed every night make Huacahuasi Lodge extra-special. With exclusive access to tour groups of Mountain Lodges of Peru, the only way you can stay here is through booking one of their five-day Lares treks to Macchu Picchu.
9. Belmond Andean Explorer
Relive the romanticism of the trains on a journey through the ancient kingdoms and natural wonders of Peru. The first luxury night train in South America slips from Cusco, the capital of the Inca Empire, through the high Andean plains to the white city of Arequipa.
Enjoy the spectacular highlights of the region en route, which include Lake Titicaca and the Colca Canyon. Relax in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. After a day of outdoor activities, you can relax your body and soul in the exclusive spa on board.
The destination is only part of the trip: join the adventure while enjoying live music and why not celebrate love with something from the bar?
In PeruRail Sacred Valley live a new travel experience to Machu Picchu with excellent service, the only train that embarks from the heart of the Sacred Valley of Cusco to the Inca Citadel.

10. Amantica Lodge
Perched on a cliffside on Lake Titicaca’s tiny island of Amantani, Amantica Lodge is the island’s—and the lake’s—first-ever micro-boutique hotel. With only one room (yes, that’s right), couples not only have their own private chef, local guide, and concierge, but they’ll also be spoiled with a private section of the island. To better fit in with the local architecture—and to minimize its environmental impact—the lodge is built from adobe wood, totora reeds, and stones from the island, and runs entirely on solar energy. It has floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the property for enjoying the lake’s views, a gas chimney stove, a Jacuzzi bathtub-for-two built directly into the cliffside, and a chill-out deck that, by day, offers views of the Andes and, by night, a lit-up sky peppered with stars.
