The Belmond Miraflores Park Hotel, one of the most luxe accommodation options in Lima, reopened its doors after months of renovations. With a new restaurant, a more modern look and a new private executive lounge for guests, Aracari was eager to pay the hotel a visit in order to get the inside scoop on all of these exciting changes, which are highlighted below.
The Lobby and Belo Bar
The lobby has retained its modern elegance with the spiral staircase at the center and the cosy, sophisticated library lounge at the end, featuring reupholstered furniture. The new reception desk offers a faster, more pleasant check-in experience with a special receptionist exclusively for VIP guests. But the more remarkable change in the lobby is in the bar and lounge, previously the Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde Lounge, which has been transformed into the Belo Bar, a low-key space for drinks and conversation with high-backed chairs and a more modern design.
Tragaluz Restaurant and Lounge
One of the most notable modifications is that the former sushi bar, Mesa 18, is no longer there. The new Tragaluz Restaurant & Lounge by restaurateur Augusto Baertl, is quite different in style both decorative and culinary. With original art by Peruvian architect and painter, Mateo Liebano, the space has a fresh, contemporary vibe with white walls, a monochromatic color scheme and understated table settings with just a small vase of flowers at the center. The menu offers Peruvian fusion dishes with Mediterranean and Asian culinary influences. Guests at Tragaluz can enjoy cocktails at the outdoor terrace or the trendy ambiance of the restaurant. Reservations are recommended!
The Executive Lounge
On the 10th floor of the Miraflores Park Hotel is the Executive Lounge, exclusively for guests who stay in Club Class. The Executive Lounge is open 24 hours a day and offers a sitting areas and table seating in a demure, well-illuminated space with panoramic views of Lima’s Costa Verde. In the Executive Lounge, guests will be offered complimentary breakfasts, snacks, light meals and refreshments throughout the day, as well as cocktails, wine and beer in the evenings. There is high-speed internet connection free of charge, an LCD television, magazines and a terrace overlooking the park. Club Class guests who arrive before check-in time will also have access to the lounge and can choose to freshen up with a warm shower before heading out for the afternoon in the full bathroom with amenities in the Lounge. And for important business dinners or special occasions, Club Class guests can rent the private dining room and have a catered meal served during the meeting.
Contemporary Designs in the Bedrooms & Bathrooms
Many of the 81 bedrooms at the Miraflores Park have undergone a “soft renovation” with new carpeting, new furniture with more modern designs and new bedding as the main changes. The rooms are still as spacious and offer guests luxury and comfort during a stay in Lima. The bathrooms have been renovated as well with marble throughout for a more contemporary, sleek look.
We left impressed by the new look of the Miraflores Park Hotel, one of our favorites in Miraflores. Not to be forgotten is the spectacular infinity pool on the 11th floor that overlooks the Pacific Ocean, the Observatory restaurant with panoramic views, where a tasty buffet breakfast is served daily or the Zest Spa with indulgent pampering services for guests. This is in addition to the full gym and top of the line technology offered in the business center, where many big conventions take place in Lima throughout the year. The spectacular location along the Costa Verde, within walking distance of great restaurants, boutiques and museums in the Miraflores district, make it the ideal hotel for a luxurious stay in Lima.
