KiChic, Mancora

Up in the northern reaches of Peru, KiChic is an unexpected tropical getaway perfect for a touch of R&R after days trekking the Inca Trail or navigating Amazonian waters. Modern bohemia and an affinity for the natural world characterise KiChic with each of the nine rooms opening up onto the gardens or ocean and an inventive restaurant serving up a menu purely consisting of organic vegetables and fresh catch of the day.


KiChic is the answer to the age-old adage of a beach break to round off a trip to Peru. An hour and 40-minute flight from Lima takes you into Talara, from where it’s just over an hour’s drive to KiChic itself. Sitting atop the golden sands of Mancora Beach and overlooking the perfect surf break, summer is a constant here. Spend your days learning to kitesurf alongside the experts and soaking in the sun on the beach – or swing by between June and October and catch sight of the humpback whales that pass on by.

Your Room

Each exhibiting its own personality, the nine rooms take their cues from their surroundings to create zen-like spaces. The perfect embodiment of KiChic’s meaning as the energy and vitality of chic, discover outdoor bathrooms and sweeping terraces as well as endless ocean views and private plunge pools in the suites. The design here shines a spotlight on natural materials whilst modern bohemia introduces bright splashes of color and relaxed comfort. So sit back on your outdoor daybed and simply enjoy the moment.

Why we like it

KiChic truly is unlike anywhere else in Peru. One step onto the Mancora Beach and you know it as the clock seemingly stops and the rest of the world fades away. Here, days are spent crafting a mandala alongside local woman, Sol, and relaxing on KiChic’s custom built ocean raft. Whilst the nights, those are for innovative cuisine and films beneath the stars with the sand between your toes at KiChic’s private cinema on the beach.
