Hospitality Design - January 2010 - 50

perspectives Peru emerging markets Peru is chock full of astonishing natural settings, and, as ground zero of the Inca Empire, has an equally impressive history. However, it wasn’t that long ago the country’s beauty was overshadowed by violence and an economy stifled by nationalized industry. Slowly, that corruption has been uprooted, and Peru is now safe; the country teems with tourists, and hotel brands from Orient-Express to Hilton are realizing now is the time to build. According to Jose Koechlin, chairman and CEO of Inkaterra, the country’s premier group of eco hotels, including Machu Picchu Pueblo, Reserva Amazonica, and La Casona, $146 million has been invested in new hotel developments throughout Peru during 20072009; at least $1.5 million more is expected over the next few years. Given Peru’s rich cultural history, guests are seeking out properties that capture this ancient spirit and capitalize upon the country’s lush surroundings. Libertador Hotels, Resorts & Spas, Peru’s largest hotel group, in an alliance with the Starwood Hotels and Resorts Luxury Collection, opened two properties in Urubamba and Paracas in 2009. Surrounded by big boulders, eucalyptus trees, and stucco, the Urubamba location has a very earthy feel; Paracas incorporates original bamboo and has restored the old bar that was once a hangout for the birdwatchers and fishermen of yore. Bernardo Fort-Brescia, founding principal of Arquitectonica, spearheaded the design. “We turned it into an experience, not a building; these are the kinds of hotels Peruvians used to have to go overseas to find,” he says. The growth is not all on the luxurious end. Among Inkaterra’s new projects is Hotel El Mapi, a 4-Star urban hotel located in the village of Machu Picchu pueblo (Aguas Calientes), which has been revamped by renowned Peruvian architect Jordi Puig. And up next for Starwood and Fort-Brescia: South America’s first Westin Hotel, with Tony Chi and Sergio Echeverria-designed interiors. From top: A plaza suite at the Inkaterra La Casona in Cusco; the main pool at Hotel Paracas; and a night-time aeriel view of Tambo del Inka Hotel in Urubamba. hospitalitydesign www.hospitalitydesign.com
