There are so many hotels throughout South America that we’ve taken the mystery out of the equation and picked only the best of the best - so you know you’ll be visiting a world class resort, whichever option you choose.
It’s unanimously agreed that the Miraflores Park Hotel in Lima is home to Peru’s greatest infinity pool. It can be found on the 11th floor of the superb building, up on the rooftop to be exact, and the heated pool offers absolutely unparalleled views of the incredible city and beyond to the Pacific Ocean. Can you imagine a more magical place to watch the sun set after a day of exploring Peru’s bustling, lively capital?
Moving on to Brazil, the region’s most popular destination, there were plenty of hotels to choose from but Rio de Janeiro’s Hotel Fasano pipped the competition to the post and secured its place on our list. Brought to life by famed architect, Philippe Stark, the hotel harks back to 60s Rio and features timeless decor throughout. The infinity pool on the top floor is the main selling point, giving guests amazing views across Ipanema Beach and the renowned surfing spot, Arpoador, so you can spot the surfers while relaxing in the calming waters.
This is one area of the world that truly lives up to its glowing reputation, and with such fantastic hotels on offer, isn’t it about time you booked a trip to South America to see what all the fuss is about?
