Kichic is a trendy, new-age style boutique hotel right on the Pacific beach at Mancora, Peru. 

KiChic is an innovative little hotel which really does deserve its 'boutique' tag. It is set on a quiet beach close to from the lively surf resort Máncora on the Pacific coast of northern Peru. It is the embodiment of 'rustic chic', blending harmoniously with the garden greenery of the landscape yet offering superior comfort. There are just nine beautifully furnished rooms and suites, each individually decorated, with double or four poster beds with mosquito netting, floor to ceiling windows or French windows, cool tiles d floors and matted or gabled ceilings, all in earthy colours. A lap-pool lies alongside the sandy beach fringing the property.

The atmosphere is very serene: the property might be described as upmarket New Age (Ki means universal life force in old Japanese), the restaurant is sophisticated vegetarian (seafood dishes served), massages are offered and yoga classes are a big deal here. Spend time relaxing, exploring the beach, or whale-watching in season (Jul-Nov). Service is very friendly and helpful. (Minimum age of guests is 14 years.)

What our clients say

  • "We saw some amazing scenery, the train was wonderful and Machu Picchu unbelievable."

    PS, Stanmore
  • "Obviously Machu Pichu was a highlight but Ollaytaytambo was impressive, Chinchero was lovely and Cusco was fantastic [we're looking into buying a house there!] the Vistadome, particularly with the staff on the return journey to Cusco, who put on a fashion show, music and dancing for us, which they genuinely seemed to enjoy too, was fantastic. I'd also really recommend Huaco Pacllano in Lima - I'd never seen a site like it before."

    SAG, Hythe
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Cusco - such a great atmosphere with so much history.

    MH, Manchester
  • Highlight?: Seeing Machu Picchu for the first time, it literally took my breather away, Ineven had tears in my eyes it is so stunning.

    CE, Rickmansworth
  • The Belmond train ride to Machu Picchu followed by the tour round Machu Picchu was stunning and very memorable. However, the Amazon was also wonderful, especially the breakfast in a creek, the sunset trip, and the walk in the rainforest.

    MS, Alton
  • A fantastic travel company for Peru. Highly respected locally. The whole Itinerary was flawless with extremely professional local reps in Peru. I believe the Inca trail company in Cusco to be the best there!

Our expert's view

Jamie Swan
Jamie Swan - Product & Marketing

Jamie backpacked across Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina and Brazil before joining us; he has a degree in politics and is also a keen sportsman..

This is a wonderful hotel, the perfect mix of hippy chic and luxury. Beautiful rooms overlooking the beach are bright and airy, the grounds are lush making you think you’re in the Caribbean, whilst the restaurant serves unique and delicious food. Relaxing at twilight in the pool as the sun disappears over the Pacific is a beautiful experience.
