There’s a new kid in town. Atemporal, Lima’s newest luxury hotel from the award-winning design team who brought us Hotel B and Titilaka, opened in August.
The luxury hotel is a renovated 1940’s mansion in the heart of Lima’s chic Miraflores district near some of the city’s best shopping areas and restaurants. There’s just nine bedrooms in the intimate hotel. A mix of antiques and modern furnishings, artwork and photographs create an informal, relaxed atmosphere in the high-ceilinged, light-filled rooms.
We caught up with designer Ignacio Masías to talk about the new luxury hotel and the impact it will have in Lima for luxury travelers.
What can travelers expect from Atemporal?
A personalized service, a homey yet chic atmosphere, the perfect way to get away from the traditional big chain and corporate hotels.
How does Atemporal differ from your other properties? And how does it complement them?
It offers the perfect way to complement Titilaka on your arrival to our country, giving you a feeling that you somehow are at home (getaway vacation home) perfect way to start your Peru experience.
Why was it important for you to have a presence in Lima’s Milaflores neighborhood?
The market demanded it! There are no other alternatives with the concept we offer: small chic hotel, smart lux with personalized service including a Maître de maison, concierge on duty around the clock, house car and chauffeur for short excursions, 24/7 menu created with locally-sourced natural ingredients, and full connectivity.
What niche does Atemporal fill in a city like Lima?
30 + Clients that want to get away from the big corporate hotels and want to have a more relaxed, personalized service without getting away of the lux and comfort they usually find in larger properties.
You are known for bringing a unique design element to every property – what is the inspiration behind this property’s identity?
Atemporal is conceived as the home of a globetrotting freelance photographer from the UK. He loves Lima but is rarely home, and ensures that his trusted staff spoil his friends and take special care of his objets. Indeed his majordomo, his personal assistant, cook and chauffeur are on call.
What makes you personally excited about this new property?
I believe this to be a conceptually innovative proposal based on our experiences with Titilaka and Hotel B; integrates a unique sense of place with the intimacy of a small hotel and services usually only found at larger properties.
