Luxury Hotel on Plaza de Armas in Arequipa

The city of Arequipa, southern Peru, lies a few hours west of Lake Titicaca and directly south of Cusco. It boasts a wealth of landmarks, from colourful monasteries to cathedrals made from volcanic rock, and if you base yourself at Hotel Katari you have easy access to it all. Located on Plaza de Armas, Hotel Katari has one of the best-rated locations in Arequipa, allowing unlimited access to shops, restaurants and ancient sites.

Katari guest bedrooms feature colonial style decoration with exposed brickwork, antique furnishings and brightly-coloured hand-woven textiles. Rooms feature everything you require for an enjoyable stay with private bathroom, satellite TV and heating, plus if you wish to treat yourself, exclusive suites offer awe-inspiring views of the city cathedral and surrounding volcanos.

Begin your day in Hotel Katari with a hearty buffet breakfast courtesy of expert hotel chefs. You can snack on Andean-style tapas throughout the day or dine alfresco at bar/restaurant Ascai 360 whilst enjoying incredible views of the city. Meals are a blend of typical Arequipa gastronomy with Peruvian and South American influences which include dishes such as traditional Ceviche and Lomo Saltado (marinated sirloin stir-fried with onions, tomatoes and spices). If you wish to relax and unwind after a day of sightseeing, enjoy a range of spa treatments inspired by nature, designed to rebalance mind, body and spirit.

There’s much to explore in Arequipa and you can begin your discovery right outside the hotel. Plaza de Armas is set amongst towering palms flanked by 17th century Arequipa Cathedral. Walk a little further you’ll come across the ancient Monastery of Santa Catalina with a village-like atmosphere and labyrinth quarters where nuns used to sleep. Calle Mercaderes has a selection of handicraft shops, trendy café bars and restaurants. Alternatively, if you prefer to be at one with nature, enjoy an excursion to Colca Canyon and see magnificent condors in full flight.
