Time to celebrate an amazing accomplishment: you’ve reached a milestone anniversary with your partner. Through tears, laughter, excitements, and occasional humdrum days, months, and years, you‘ve made it through everything life has thrown your way. You’ve somehow managed to survive, even thrive as a couple through it all. What better place to celebrate this great milestone than on a romantic Peru luxury tour.
In this article, we’ll walk you through some options we’ve handpicked to make your special anniversary unforgettable.
Start out in Lima, where you can spend a night or two in the impeccable Belmond Miraflores, with its gorgeous views of the ocean, fabulous garden setting, and Amazon-inspired spa. Lima offers the finest of dining experiences: visit the district of Barranco to dine at Central, a concept restaurant that features colorful Peruvian dishes categorized by ecosystem and elevation. It is currently ranked as the number one restaurant in Latin America and number six in the world! Chef Virgilio Martinez serves up a variety of all-Peruvian tasting menus based on region, colors, and function. Truly a specular and memorable experience to share on your Peru luxury anniversary tour.
From Lima, you might consider hopping a short plane ride to Iquitos to take a luxury Amazon Cruise aboard a five-star yacht, such as the Delfín II or the Aqua Expeditions. These luxury yachts boast beautiful deluxe suites with panoramic picture windows so that you can watch the world float by from the comfort of your luxurious king-sized bed. There are regular jaunts on skiff boats to view wildlife, including the mystical pink Amazon River dolphin and the Giant River otter. There is nothing like a cruise to re-attune one to the beauty of life, and sharing this experience with your mate will no doubt bring you even closer together.
Now it’s on to the southern region of Peru to visit Cusco, this once historical Inca capital, the Sacred Valley, and the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu. Enjoy a night or two at the Belmond Nazarenas, formerly a nun’s convent. The Belmond boasts 55 suites, a renowned restaurant and bar, and an infinity-edge swimming pool. While in Cusco, take a tour of the Sacred Valley and visit the intriguing Maras and Moray on horsebacks. Another option you may want to consider is Ollantaytambo, one of the few remaining places in Peru that has preserved its original Incan urban planning.
Surely, you cannot celebrate your anniversary in Peru without visiting Machu Picchu and what better way than to board on the luxurious (and romantic) Belmond Hiram Bingham train. Upon arrival to Machu Picchu Station in Aguas Calientes, a shuttle bus awaits to take you to Machu Picchu where you and your loved one can stroll along the ancient paths and breathe in the mysticism of this amazing place.
Spend the night with your sweetie at the Belmond Sanctuary Lodge, located just a few paces from Machu Picchu itself. With delectable food, cozy accommodations, and an open air Jacuzzi, you and your loved ones will bathe in tranquil warm waters while observing a sky full of stars.
After your Peru luxury trip to Machu Picchu, consider a trip to the Northern Coast to stroll along the beautiful sandy beaches of Mancora. The DCO Hotel Mancora, boasts an international menu, beach access, impeccable guest service, and a luxury spa with massage packages especially designed for couples. Participate in ocean kayaking, swim in the hotel pool, ride horses along the beach, or view the exquisite coastal sunsets from the comfort of your hotel room with an ocean view.
All of the above options are adaptable for couples with or without families. If you are celebrating your anniversary with grown kids and/or grandkids, you might want to consider something a bit quirky and adventurous: how about a stay at the Sky Lodge? This hotel consists of exclusive transparent capsule suites clinging to the side of a cliff, for a completely transparent 300 degree view of the surrounding mountains and valleys. You’ll spend the night 1200 feet above the ground! This option is for couples and families in good shape, as you have to either climb up the side of the cliff via ferrata or use a series of hike-zipline combo and climb a 13ft via ferrata at the end (all accompanied by professional guides) to arrive at the accommodations. You and your family will never forget this experience; it’s akin to being in a condor’s nest for the night!
There is simply no other place on earth that offers so many incredible options for your anniversary as Peru does. Let Kuoda arrange your anniversary celebration tour.
