Romantic Holidays in Peru

Find out why Peru is perfect for couples and honeymooners...

With its secluded sands, lofty mountain perches and seemingly endless swathes of jungle, Peru certainly has the natural riches to beguile those in search of an unforgettable honeymoon.

Although not the obvious choice for a coastal retreat, Peru’s beachside options are only limited in comparison to its wealth of sandy real estate. 

Miraflores in Lima has the pick of the latest luxury rooms with sea views, but the spectacular sunsets and relative remoteness of the far north should give it the nod over the slightly chillier capital. Here, Spa Origenes between Vichayito and Los Organos is an attractive option: its outdoor hot tub and pool enable visitors to get a free salting along with a range of paid-for services. Nearby, Hotel Los Pocitas can’t match its local rival for pampering but has an equally appealing oceanfront location and hammocks aplenty swinging under thatched eaves.

With their steep, forest-clad slopes, convoluted rivers and Inca topping, there’s no denying the swoon-inducing power of the Andes. Cuzco with its narrow, Inca-walled paths and colonial-era accommodation isn’t short on romance – Inca Spa is perhaps the pick of the pamper-palaces and Hotel Monasterio packed to the rafters with colonial charm. Whether you stay in Cuzco or situate yourself closer to the wonders of Machu Picchu, chugging along the banks of the Urubamba River and gazing up at the surrounding mountains through the huge windows of the Peru Rail train carriages is an absolute must. A luxury hotels in close proximity to Machu Picchu is the Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo Hotel and, closer to the ruins, Machu Picchu Sanctuary Lodge by Orient Express. You can even get married at the latter and also enlist the ceremonial services of a shaman! 

Wherever you choose to stay, get up early to watch the sunlight run like honey down Machu Picchu’s formidable mountain backdrop.

For those who’d like to spend their romantic holiday in Peru immersed in the carnival colours  and squawking surround sound of the sultry rainforest, then Peru offers two locations that take you right to the heart of nature: Iquitos in northern Peru and Puerto Maldonado in south-eastern Peru. We can tailor an itinerary that takes you into this secret world of dolphins, monkeys, frogs and sloths: spend a couple of days at the Inkaterra Reserva Amazonica in Puerto Maldonado or enjoy a five-day Intimate Amazon Adventure, spent in the vicinity of Iquitos, onboard the Delfin 1. 

Just be sure to pack a copy of Love in the Time of Cholera.
