A Luxury Collection Resort set on the Peruvian desert coast at Paracas National Reserve on the Pacific Ocean.
A member of Marriott’s top-end Luxury Collection portfolio, Hotel Paracas is a sumptuous property situated on the Bay of Paracas, on the doorstep of the Paracas National Reserve which protects the abundant wildlife congregating on the desert shores of the Pacific Ocean and the Ballestas Islands beyond.
The contemporary, Mediterranean-style property, embraced by tropical foliage and tailored lawns, is first class in all respects. Accommodation is in discreet two-story buildings and bungalows: guest rooms are large, bright and airy and there is an outdoor furnished terrace attached to each. The hotel’s restaurant offers sophisticated dishes prepared with locally caught fish and other ingredients from the region. Other amenities include a cosy lounge bar and two heated swimming pools – one for families, the other a large facility with sun loungers and ocean views. There’s an activity centre offering water sports and cycling while a short stroll away is the spa with a comprehensive menu of treatments.

“It is great to know that you are going to have a fantastic holiday every time you travel to Peru.JL, Cobham
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
We had a private tour, which we think was the best way to do this sort of trip. Although we had only 9 days in Peru in the Cuzco area, we managed to cover an extensive amount of material in depth and the whole trip was unforgettable. The local organisation was superb - punctual, knowledgeable, reliable, etc.PS, Reading
"It was the overall experience that was important and I keep finding myself recalling small details that were entrancing at the time and then got lost in the next bout of sensory overload. In the end, I'd say it was the fact that I was able to speak almost nothing but Spanish for the duration of my trip that gave and gives me the greatest pleasure. Partly this is satisfaction that I adapted my Castillian Spanish so well to Peru. More importantly, I know that I got much more out of my guided tours because my guides were able to convey subtleties in their own language that would have got lost in translation. This is one of the key pluses of the 'tailor made' model. Having mainly private tours and excursions meant that I rarely had to compromise on this, for me, key aspect of the experience."DM, Nottingham
Most memorable experience: “Probably visiting the islands on Lake Titicaca followed closely by HB train and Machu Picchu"TS, Birmingham
