Located on the outskirts of Ica, Hotel Las Dunas is 9-minute drive from the downtown Ica area. Make sure you make time for a meal out – consider sampling some chifa, popular Chinese-Peruvian cuisine. Before you go exploring the ancient terrain, get your bearings at the Museo Regional de Ica, a museum with a number of fascinating artifacts uncovered in the Ica Valley.
At the hotel, you’ll get to choose from a number of dining experiences. Visit the hotel restaurant, or either of the hotel’s other two dining rooms. Before you eat, consider starting your evening at the hotel bar, with a sip or two of a local vintage. The interior of Hotel Las Dunas takes its decorating inspiration from the outdoors. Pristine, open spaces give way to bright colors and fresh flowers. High, vaulted ceilings make the rooms feel open and inviting. Communal seating areas are designed to make guests feel cozy, with enough space for you to socialize with friends or have a corner all to yourself.
Your room at Hotel Las Dunas comes with air conditioning, to keep your room a comfortable temperature in the midst of the desert. Make a call on a direct line phone from the privacy of your room. WiFi Internet and cable LCD TV will keep you entertained between trips to the dunes and the vineyards. But with the view from your private terrace, you probably won’t feel the need to look at any screens. Each room comes with a private bathroom, complete with a tub and a shower. Finish your look with the provided hair dryer. Once you deposit your valuables in your room’s safety deposit box, you’ll be ready to start the day. When you come home from an exciting day of hunting for fossils in the Ica Valley, you can turn your laundry over to the capable Las Dunas staff.
Ica is best known for its vineyards and its dunes. Dunes around Ica are ripe with opportunities for horseback riding and bike riding. If you don’t get enough of a workout in the sand, visit the Hotel Las Dunas gym, followed by a trip to the steamy sauna. Kids have their own place to use up some energy – the Dunas Kids’ Castle has plenty of playground equipment and supervised daycare activities. There’s also the outdoor pool, the perfect spot for travelers to reconvene at the end of the day. Hotel Las Dunas provides a number of other outdoor activities for guests, right on the hotel grounds, for a well-rounded resort experience.
