A honeymoon is the chance to take the trip of a lifetime and Peru is certainly a perfect destination for couples in love. It truly offers everything, the most stunning historic sites in the world, world-class fusion cuisine, golden beaches and verdant rainforests.
Our programs give you a taste of the highlights of Peru, with each experience offering a blend of romance and luxury. Of course, we can customize everything to create your perfect trip.
For lots of people, a honeymoon is all about luxury. Stay in the verdant Belmond Miraflores Park overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This cliffside retreat is the perfect place to toast the beginning of your honeymoon adventure.
Start your journey in Cusco, the gateway to Machu Picchu and the magical home of Peru’s rich cultural history. We recommend staying at the Belmond Monasterio in Cusco. Situated right next to the central heart of Cusco, this converted 16th century monastery is one of the most romantic hotels in the world. Enjoy dinner in the candlelit cloistered courtyard or take a stroll through the rustic chambers to enjoy a drink under the stone arches of the Lobby Bar.
Machu Picchu is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to travel 600 years back in time and soak up the power of the Incas. Rise at dawn to enjoy enough time to properly soak up every example of intricate stonework, perhaps fitting in a climb up Huayna Picchu or to the Sun Gate.
You can reach Machu Picchu by trek or a luxurious train journey through the undulating Andes foothills.
The Amazon rainforest is another world-famous experience in Peru. Renowned for its astonishing biodiversity and remote tribes, it is an expanse of flora and fauna which stretches across eight different countries.
We’d recommend taking a relaxing luxury Amazon boat tour, which navigates you through a quiet network of tributaries of the Amazon river. During the day, hop onto shore to take a walk into the jungle and catch a glimpse of some of the rarest animals in the world. At night, sit back with a glass of wine and look to the sky to see shining constellations light up the sky.
We also highly recommend spending a night on land at the Treehouse Lodge in Iquitos. Ascend up into the trees and spend your night in the canopy surrounded only by the sounds of the local wildlife.
The Sacred Valley around Cusco is also home not only of the beautiful Urubamba valley and well-preserved historic sites, such as Pisac and Moray, but also to one of the highlights of Peru, the unique glass pods on cliffs that make up the the Skylodge.
After a 400 metre climb through the Sacred Valley, you’ll spend the night in a cliffside glass lodge overlooking the valley. With nothing to separate you and the stars above, this makes for the perfect stop on a romantic honeymoon trip.

Start your trip in Lima, the cultural and gastronomic capital of Peru. This rapidly growing city ranks alongside the best of South America in terms of food, drink and culture. Peruvian cuisine has become increasingly famous in the last decade. Peruvian cooking is the king of fusion cuisine, with an array of fresh dishes that reflect a diverse set of influences ranging from the Incas to Chinese immigrants.
The stretch of the Pacific Ocean that borders Lima gives Peru its famous national dishes such as ceviche; fresh fish cured with lime juice. Some of the world’s best restaurants can be found in Lima – in the 2017 ranking of the world’s 50 best restaurants, Lima was the only city with two restaurants in the top ten. Central, often called the best restaurant in South America, serves up exquisite tasting menus that celebrate the biodiversity of Peru through food.
The Bay of Paracas is renowned for abundant wildlife and a soft blue sea brilliantly set off by the surrounding desert and rocky cliffs. We highly recommend staying at La Hacienda Paracas with a bayside location that offers a blend of peace and luxury. It’s the perfect place to spend a couple of quiet days relaxing on a honeymoon with beautiful views.
Another hotel from the Belmond chain, the Palacia Nazarenas is ideally located in Cusco and this is the perfect Peru honeymoon hotel if you are exploring the Andes or taking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. As with the Miraflores Park Plaza, there is a restaurant and spa, both of which are top of the range. The style of the hotel itself is magnificent too and combines modern architecture together with traditional Inca elements.
This hotel is simply gorgeous and a true treat for those heading to Machu Picchu on their Peru honeymoon. Located within the cloud forest, the surroundings and décor of El Pueblo Inkaterra are magnificent. You will be surrounded by nature and immersed within this special ecosystem. Nature lovers will also enjoy this hotel as it features over 200 different bird species.
For a unique and memorable honeymoon in Peru why not stay in the epic landscape of the Colca Valley? The Colca Lodge is ideally located in this valley, only 2.5 hours from the popular city of Arequipa. Surrounded by nature and a host of pre-Inca agricultural terraces, this hotel will give you an unforgettable experience and serve as a base to explore the valley.
