Formerly a family home with one of the best coastal settings around, the now re-imaged KiChic hotel in Mancora has style and beach-living vibes in abundance. This laidback luxury property is a place of yoga classes, surfing and seafood, with beautiful sunsets to be enjoyed from the semi-open-air restaurant just for good measure. The beach-chic feel of KiChic hotel is reflected in the décor, too, with the standalone suites and communal areas constructed from reclaimed wooden decking, wicker, exposed beams and even mud brick walls in places. There’s no spa, but massages can be arranged as well as movies on the beach, watersports and whale watching, or simply enjoying a hand-crafted cocktail beside the firepit or pool. Food here is especially good, all locally-inspired and fresh across a meat-free gourmet menu, making KiChic an unmissable boutique stop on your tour of Peru’s gorgeous northwest coastline.

Rooms at KiChic

Each of the 9 standalone suites at KiChic hotel, ranging from 40-75sqm in size, are individually designed in their layout and all come with their own unique appeal. The style is the same beach-chic you’ll find elsewhere throughout this stylish property, think cream canvas drapes, earthy color tones, exposed stonework or mudbrick walls, and either bare wood or terracotta-tiled floors. The breezy beachside vibes continue with private patios (some also featuring an outdoor bathtub, daybed or seating area), and lots of light – plus those sea or garden views – through either oversized windows or sliding patio doors. In-room amenities at KiChic include tea and coffee facilities, air-conditioning and a ceiling fan, a minibar and nice touches like complimentary sunhats and lux bath products, while the top suites also feature a private plunge pool and sun deck. It’s noteworthy that KiChic’s suites are only able to sleep two, making them unsuitable for families travelling with small children.
