The Los Palomos Hotel is located close to the small village of Lunahuaná on the lower coastal slopes of the Andes, two and a half hours from Lima. The hotel is surrounded by mountains, three acres of gardens, grape vines and fruit trees. The river Cañete flows by the hotel and there are 150 metres of terraces overlooking the river which has a natural beach. The Hotel is a new concept in the area offering its guests simple elegance, privacy, space to relax, birdsong, wonderful air and, most importantly, it's personal service.
There are twenty rooms and suites decorated individually with original art and fresh flowers from the garden. Each room or suite has a complete bathroom, cable TV, wifi, furnished terraces and gardens. The famous, "Los Palomos" complete breakfast is complementary.
There is a designer swimming pool with a paddling pool, as well as a children's play area and a duck pond.
The lounge has a library, where one can relax with a good book listening to music. In the winter the fireplace is lit.
The restaurant offers local and international fare using local organic produce from our own garden. For outdoor dining there are terraces around the restaurant with river views, as well as from the bar, where we prepare the best cocktails. At nighttime, the fire is lit under the stars and marshmallows are offered as well as a good Pisco.
With the environment in mind, we have planted more than two hundred trees; we prepare our own compost, grow our own vegetables, recycle our refuse, and make maximum use of the irrigation water which we receive. We do not use chemical fertilizers or insecticides.
We participate fully in the community: Most of our staff come from the surrounding area, and have been individually trained in the Hotel. We have financed projects in the village, such as the roofing of the church, donations to local charities and our next project is the implementation of the local park.
