Costa del Sol Wyndham Arequipa (formerly the Libertador) has colonial charm, both inside and out. The building, painted in dusky pink hues, dates back to the 1940s and is surrounded by landscaped gardens, complete with Juanita, the resident Galapagos tortoise. You are a stone's throw from beautiful Selva Alegre Park, you are also not far from many of the area's major historical sites.
The reception and lobby areas have high ceilings and feature elegant wooden furniture of the period. Carry on through to the lounge, decorated in soft blue hues, with plush sofas and fancy chandeliers adding to the air of classic elegance.
The guest rooms and suites provide a peaceful haven after a day out exploring the sights of the city. Soothing colours and spacious rooms create a relaxing ambience and set you up for a good night's rest. In room extras such as bathrobes and slippers help make this a home from home. Choose from Superior and Premium rooms and a variety of Suites.
If you have energy to burn there is an on-site fitness centre and an outdoor pool, alternatively enjoy a relaxing dip in the hot tub or pamper yourself with a spa treatment. Start the day with a visit to the buffet breakfast where you will find a scrumptious spread to tantalise your tastebuds. In the evening the chefs present a menu of fusion dishes with a creative twist on Peruvian and international cuisine. Afterwards indulge in a nightcap in the Walak bar which also has a menu of light dishes if you just want a snack before heading back to the sanctuary of your room.
