This decidedly modern hotel is located within Lima’s Miraflores District, one of the city’s most affluent and tourist friendly areas. It’s a convenient base from which to explore the city’s many distinct areas, not to mention its abundance of attractions. Just half an hour away from the airport, the hotel is a comfortable, mid-range option for travellers on a budget.
There's a total of 42 air conditioned rooms, with the option of single, double or triple bed formation. All rooms offer plenty of space and are decorated in a pleasant and contemporary style. They have laminated flooring and contemporary splashes of red throughout, with stonework furnishings adding a touch of character. Amenities such as a hair dryer, an LCD TV with cable channels, complimentary toiletries and bottled water are provided; minibars are also available, though only on request. The bathrooms have showers with rainfall shower heads.
Buffet breakfast is served at the Sawa Cafe, which is also open daily for lunch and breakfast, serving an array of international and Peruvian dishes, with a broad drinks menu featuring local cocktails, fine wines and non-alcoholic beverages. Lighter snacks are also available throughout the day. The hotel has a public lounge and several social areas where guests are free to relax and unwind. Laundry services and currency exchange are also available.
The hotel is well placed for those wishing to explore the trendy Miraflores District. There are lush parks and beaches that are hotspots for water sports, plus a wide range of shops and a diverse line-up of restaurants, cafes and bars. The district’s central plaza holds regular art exhibitions and flea markets, popular with both locals and tourists alike. While there’s plenty to experience in the district, it’s definitely worth exploring the many other districts that make up the city. The historic centre of the city, for example, is home to an impressive cluster of well preserved buildings showcasing colonial architecture and design. Another district worthy of mention is the Barranco District, which has a thriving and energetic arts scene. It’s a hub for artists, designers and musicians, and surfers are also attracted to its beaches where top surfing competitions are often held.
The hotel does welcome children, although parents should note that there are no designated child services or facilities available on site. That said, there's no shortage of activities and entertainment for all age groups in the immediate vicinity.

Dear Lisa. On behalf of the three generations of the Rowland family. Thank you, so much, for organising our wonderful holiday to Botswana and the Victoria Falls. The trip of a lifetime. The week mobile camping in the bush, with our guide Nandos and his crew was a fantastic adventure. How they manage to cook such wonderful food on an open fire is amazing. The sites were constantly visited by monkeys and once by elephants. We were even lucky enough to see two packs of wild dogs, once with a kill. Waterberry Lodge on the Zambezi River is a wonderfully tranquil place. Ideal to relax after the adventures of our safari and visiting Victoria Falls. Very many thanks once again

We had a great time - even with the flight between Governors and the coast being two flights and a car! We also experienced a power cut At Nairobi airport on the way home so 2+ hours late taking off. Governors. Wonderful people and dealt with the flight delay very well - taking us back and letting us know that we could stay there if the flight was delayed overnight. The game drives were excellent and our guide (Erick) obviously very experienced and managed to find all the key animals - no rhino in that part of the Masai Mara but everything else in abundance - never seen so many herbivores (many many elephants as well as all the others) as well as two prides of lions. Could not have asked for more. The ‘tent’ was excellent and comfortable and well serviced. The only ‘complaint’ would be that the food - especially dinner - could be improved (I think we got a bit bored of soup as a starter for every meal bar one) and the main courses were not at the same level as Kinondo Kwetu and while all were explained there was no choice offered. The breakfasts were just what was needed after an early game drive. Kinondo Kwetu. What a great location and the welcome when we arrived at just gone 11.00pm was better than you could have ever thought possible - they we’re disappointed that we did not at that time want the full dinner experience! The rooms we’re comfortable. The food was excellent but again no choice was offered - other than for allergy reasons (which we do not have). May be some choice would be nice. Having said that the food we did have was excellent as were the wines (albeit a short list!) and other drinks. There were (as you know) lots of facilities/sports options - but we spent our time relaxing which was exactly what we needed and there were lots of places to do that. Overall. We would go back to both places - perhaps a few more nights at Kinondo Kwetu next time but 3 nights at Governors was perfect for us. Thank you for organising and recommending both places. That you and your colleague for trying to find out about the plane (flat tyre) but communication by the flight company left a lot to be desired (Governors were furious that they were not told and had taken us to the airstrip).

It was certainly a holiday of a lifetime for us and we loved every minute!! The standard and location of each accommodation was excellent, as was the variety of each different accommodation type. Our schedule was perfect and we managed to achieve everything on our to-do task list. Your documents were also really helpful, as were the driving directions. We all thank you for making this such a wonderful holiday. Happy to leave a review publicly if you point me the right way. Best Steve
