This beautifully preserved and well presented hotel is unique among those in Arequipa, Southern Peru. The building was originally a mint house and has been carefully repurposed to function as a full-service hotel, while keeping its many traditional features intact. While it's very much a building of heritage and history, exemplified by its two colonial-style courtyards, there are a fair few modern touches to it as well. Situated behind the fascinating Santa Catalina Convent and just a few blocks from the central Plaza de Armas, it’s very well located for those looking to explore Arequipa.

The hotel has a total of 40 air conditioned rooms that are available in three different categories: Superior, Suite and Senior Suite. All rooms are decorated in a tasteful and pleasant way that pays homage to local traditions. Rooms include a range of convenient amenities such as a mini bar, a kit for making coffee, an LED TV and a desk. Both of the suites come with a king size bed, while the Superior rooms offer either one king size bed or two doubles.

The Alma Restaurant is open daily for three meals. Breakfast is served buffet style, and for lunch and dinner there's an appetising array of local dishes, along with a number international and contemporary options. There’s also a bar out in one of the courtyards and the broad drinks menu covers everything from non-alcoholic beverages, to colourful cocktails, refreshing spirits and more.

There’s an abundance of sights and attractions in Arequipa, with scores of colonial buildings, important monuments, towering churches and fascinating museums to take in. While the city is known for its rich history, it’s also a great hub for outdoor pursuits, thanks in part to the snow-capped volcanoes that lie in the not-so-distant background. Some of the many adventure-based activities include biking, mountaineering and even white water rafting. At the end of a day's adventures, guests can head back to the hotel and relax in the spa which has both a sauna and a jacuzzi, and a tempting list of indulgent treatments on offer.

Children are welcome, and while there aren't any designated facilities or services for youngsters at the hotel, there's plenty for all age groups to do in and around Arequipa.

  • I would like to say a massive thank you for organising our Vietnam trip. The itinerary and execution were superb, as was the attention to detail. I would also like to thank the agent who was on the end of my whats app chat (I have no idea who they were!) – always available, always quick to respond, and kept me updated regarding times etc. Also, the guides Dan (north) and Tien (mid) were just excellent, and we really enjoyed their company. The lady (whose name I have forgotten) who was our additional guide for the DMZ day was exceedingly good and made that day very special.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last
