InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced the debut of both the InterContinental Hotels and Resorts and Hotel Indigo brands in Peru, with two new properties now under construction in the capital city of Lima.
The Hotel Indigo Lima Miraflores will also be the brand’s first property in South America.
Both hotels are expected to open in early 2022 and will be owned by Inmobiliaria Vistamar and managed by IHG.
The InterContinental Lima Miraflores and Hotel Indigo Lima Miraflores will be located next to each other in the vibrant epicentre of Miraflores, steps away from Larcomar, the city’s bustling commercial centre, which offers the finest dining, entertainment and shopping in Lima.
Elie Maalouf, chief executive officer, Americas, IHG, said: “Our portfolio of brands continues to expand throughout Latin America thanks to relationships with passionate owners such as Inmobiliaria Vistamar.
“Peru is thriving with one of the strongest economies in the region, and we are pleased to introduce these leading global luxury and lifestyle brands to business and leisure travellers in the market.”
Gonzalo de Losada, chief executive officer, Inmobiliaria Vistamar, said: “We are very proud to be partnering with IHG to bring these two world-renowned brands to Peru, and build on InterContinental’s legacy in Latin America.
“We look forward to providing luxury and unique experience-led stays to the most discerning travellers in the world.”
With its stunning location and views overlooking the Pacific Ocean and incorporating a modern design, the InterContinental Lima Miraflores will rise 20 stories and feature 322 elegantly appointed guest rooms, including 29 opulent suites, a fine dining restaurant, two bars with a rooftop lounge, a spa and fitness centre.
The property will also offer its exclusive Club InterContinental lounge, 1,000 square metres of meeting space and will include the largest outdoor hotel pool in Lima, measuring more than 17 metres (56 feet) in length.
The Hotel Indigo Lima Miraflores will be a boutique hotel featuring 76 guest rooms, including six luxury suites, an upscale, locally inspired restaurant and bar, and a fitness centre.
Additionally, the hotel will offer lush gardens for guests of both hotels for outdoor functions and will include underground parking with street access to the area’s main thoroughfare on Alcanfores Street.
Two of the most prestigious architecture and design firms from South America are leading the architecture and hotel design of both properties.
Fuenzalida and Swinburn Architect and Associates is the project architect and German Margozzini – Arquitectura Diseño Interior Hospitality Spa is overseeing the hotels’ interior design and décor.
Peru continues to be one of South America’s fastest-growing emerging markets, providing a strong economic environment for IHG’s diverse portfolio of brands.
