Amid sprawling gardens outside the town center, this 1940 Spanish-colonial villa is an oasis in Old Arequipa, with sillar arches, wrought-iron window screens, and Peruvian details that give this luxury hotel the intimate feel of an old family home. The grand hotel, lightly renovated in 2010, is in a leafy district of Selva Alegre, and it had long been Arequipa's best property until the Casa Andina Private Collection sprung up. Have breakfast on the terrace, then dip in
the pool overlooking Volcán Misti and the Andean panorama. You don't have to stay here to stop in the pub-style bar or splurge on the continental delights at Restaurant Los Robles.
