Hotel Los Palomos is a family business, owned by the Michelsen family. The Michelsens often visited the area of Lunahuaná for many years, before finally deciding that they would like to construct their country house in Lunahuana. It took them two years before they found a piece of land which was suitable.
They fell in love with it immediately, even after taking into consideration the difficulties involved: no water, no electricity, no access, and worse, not one tree.
It took them three years to build the hotel and to landscape and terrace the beautiful garden and the riverbanks.
