A Starwood Hotel, the Luxury Collection Paracas is a feast for the eye featuring modern style architecture that serves only to accentuate the surrounding Paracas Natural Reserve. Strategically situated on the bay in front of the reserve, the resort sits in the midst of wildlife activity, allowing guests to see sea lions, flamingos, dolphins and penguins with ease.

Each of the one hundred and twenty rooms and suites feature either an ocean or garden view with large, comfortable beds and other modern amenities like iPod docking stations and LCD TV’s. Guests can enjoy luxuries outside of the living quarters as well, relaxing at one of the three pools or indulging in one of many spa treatments from the hotel’s state-of-the-art facility. Additionally, guests can have a meal at on of the restaurants including a Peruvian/Mediterranean restaurant and an Italian Trattoria.

There are many activities beyond the property grounds that offer guests the chance to explore the nature reserve. You can take a boat tour to the Ballestas Islands to observe different marine birds and sea lions, or venture out to see the Pre-Incan Candelabra geoglyph etched in the desert, which dates back to 200 B.C.E. Alternatively, closer to the hotel you can learn the process behind the country’s signature pisco with the offering of pisco winery tours in Paracas.
