This year’s TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Awards includes three hotels from the independent, Peruvian-owned Aranwa Hotels: Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness, Aranwa Cusco Boutique Hotel, and Vichayito Bungalows & Tents.
The award celebrates hospitality excellence and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor.
Earlier this year both Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness and Aranwa Cusco Boutique earned TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards, making their first appearance to the list of the top 25 in Peru.
Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness, which opened in 2008 is located in a restored 17th Century colonial hacienda on the banks of the Vilcanota River in Urubamba, offers a combination of mystical ancient Inca culture, colonial grandeur, and modern design and comfort.
The two-year-old Aranwa Cusco Boutique Hotel is located in the heart of the Inca city of Cusco and housed in a restored colonial 16th Century mansion. The 43-room hotel offers a rare blend of state-of-the-art modern luxury and comfort served with traditional Peruvian warmth and style.
On Vichayito Beach along Peru’s north coast, lies the idyllic resort Vichayito Bungalows & Tents By Aranwa Hotels, offering a mix of Bedouin-style tents and stilted bungalows all right on the sand with views of the Pacific surf.
“Receiving these awards is a reflection of Aranwa’s commitment to exceptional personalized service, its philosophy of respect for the country’s traditions and heritage, and a genuine passion to share this Peruvian culture with our guests,” noted Gabriel Alvarez, Aranwa’s General Manager.
Aranwa Hotel Resorts & Spas is a growing Lima-based hotel group offering luxury accommodations and service along with authentic immersion into Peruvian culture and the local destination. The group includes:
Opened in April 2013 is the 41-room Aranwa Colca Resort & Spa in Arequipa, Peru’s second largest city, located in the stunning Colca Valley. In 2014, The Aranwa Paracas Resort & Spa is slated to open in Paracas Bay, near Paracas National Reserve in Peru’s southern coastal desert, often referred as the “Galapagos of Peru” due to its prolific wildlife and the magnificent scenery.
