Though Hotel Paracas dates back to 1944, it was completely rebuilt (save an original boating dock) in 2007, giving the hotel a fresh and modern feel. Interiors are designed with a palate of white and sea blues to reflect the hotel’s beachfront location, and all 120 guestrooms come with inner sitting areas as well as furnished balconies for prime relaxation amid pool or ocean views. Take advantage at their spa and 24-hour fitness center, and if you’ve brought the tots, there’s plenty of kid-friendly distractions (think: arts and crafts, treasure hunts, movie time) via the onsite Explorer Club.
In the Area
While the resort is designed so you don’t have to leave the grounds, it’s worth renting a car to explore some of the historical and natural diversions nearby. It’s just a 30-minute drive to the Nazca Lines, a collection of mysterious geoglyphs scratched into the desert by Pre-Incan inhabitants. Further afield, take in a day of wine tastings at the Pisco vineyards, the area where the majority of country’s wine is produced. If you’re looking to stay local, make the mile-long trip to the Paracas National Reserve, home to over 215 species of migratory birds and ancient archeological sites.
How to Get There
We stayed at Hotel Paracas for 2 nights and wished we stayed longer. The building design of the hotel is exceptional and the rooms are spacious. The service is excellent especially from Flavia, the Concierge. We really enjoyed the breakfast buffet, which included every imaginable breakfast foods with the most varieties of teas I have ever seen.
My husband and I stayed at hotel Paracas for a few days in July 2018. We found the hotel extremely relaxing and enjoyed using the hotel bikes to explore the area. Our room was extremely spacious with a separate bath and shower. Breakfast was amazing with a great variety on offer. We also tried all three restaurants: the food was great as was the service. Our only regret is that we didn't stay for longer.
After a hectic 10 days exploring Cusco and Lima, this hotel was the perfect end to our holiday. It is a beautiful resort on the coast with lovely gardens, water sports and a choice of great bars and restaurants. The pool areas are fantastic and even in the winter the temperatures are warm enough to make the most of them.
The rooms are great and the giant bed was to most comfortable or the holiday. The small town of Paracas nearby has cheap good resteraunts and a couple of great bars. This is a fantastic base for going on to explore the Nazca Lines. Definitely recommend.
The road from Lima to Parcas is boring, long and ugly... but it worths if you are lodged at this Luxury Hotel. Excellent service, entertaining possibilities and perfect villas. Heated pools helped a lot to enjoy the stay. Excellent kitchen, although mojitos could be better... minor detail for a superb property that will help you enjoy Paracas natural reserve to its full potential. Vicente Flores and Daniela Linares are the perfect hosts for a memorable stay. Perfect team for a perfect place...
We were looking for somewhere to spend a couple of days relaxing at the end of our Peru trip. It’s a bit of a hike driving down from Lima but we had 3 fab days relaxing around the pool before flying home. Weather not reliable at this time of year but we had two glorious days. Also flew over Nazca Lines arranged by hotel. Food not quite at same level as elsewhere on our trip but perfectly good and the staff were excellent, really friendly and attentive and facilities were great. Recommend!
