The first luxury boutique hotel in the bustling port city of Guayaquil, Hotel del Parque is a uniquely Ecuadorean take on five-star accommodation. The gleaming white 19th-century building sits in the Parque Historico, an oasis of swaying palms and fragrant tropical flowers. So tranquil it is hard to believe the airport is only 10 minutes away. Inside are striking interiors by acclaimed designer Julio Vinueza, featuring cool, muted colours and authentic Ecuadorean furniture (both antique and modern).
The del Parque is a 'foodie' paradise. Guests can roast their own coffee, learn to make chocolate from cocoa beans grown in the hotel's garden, and enjoy some of the country's best cuisine in the Casa Julian restaurant. This stunning waterside dining room, overlooking Daule River, is the perfect setting in which to experience the Andean trout ceviche and veal shank with black bean moro and roasted orange.
