A little lovin’ in Lima - Wedding Album

A little lovin’ in Lima

By  |  0 Comments

Let’s be real. Most of us just want to kick back with a cocktail and laze the day away with our other halves on the creamy sands of a beach somewhere for our honeymoons. Maybe throw in a bit of sightseeing, discovery and a dash of adventure, and you have the perfect mix for you and your hubby. Well, we have just the location for you – and it’s far from the cliché island getaway that’s put one standard image in our minds whenever we hear the ‘h’ word. Peru is where it’s at, and with no shortage of perfect honeymoon accommodation, stunning beaches, museums and history, we can’t help but wonder why it doesn’t get more cred as the perfect romantic destination!

So the nuptials have been declared, the confetti swept away and the cake, well, devoured. It’s time to forget all that wedding planning buzz, jet over to Peru’s capital and get lost in all the sights and sounds it has to offer – not to mention a tailored honeymoon experience at Golf Los Incas Hotel & Spa. Their Wedding Night package ticks all the romantic boxes – everything down to the bottle of Champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. It also includes a 36-hour stay at the hotel, buffet breakfast at their Green Restaurant and a picturesque view of the golf course from your well-appointed hotel suite. While you can take your pick of suites on offer for this package, our favourite is the 16th floor Penthouse suite that comes with its own hydromassage hot tub on the balcony. That’s a one-way ticket to Relaxation Central if you ask us!

When you aren’t whiling away the endless hours in your luxury hotel suite, a visit to the Larco Museum will whisk you away into Peruvian pre-Columbian history. The building that houses the museum is built over a 7th century pre-Columbian pyramid, and is home to a well-known collection of pottery. If you’re looking for a good afternoon of sunbathing, a spot on the beach at Santa María del Mar will have you sorted. It’s situated a little way out of the main busy district, and a perfect place to clink glasses and canoodle after hours of shopping up a storm at the main hub’s many boutiques and restaurants.

Planning to explore a little further inland? Visit the Inca city ruins of Machu Picchu. After all, a visit to Peru isn’t complete without a tour of this official New7Wonder of the World and UNESCO Heritage Site. At the end of your stay, you’ll be glad you didn’t take one of the more ‘predictable’ travel options, and have a honeymoon story to tell like no other. You’re welcome.
