Peru - DESTINATIONS & HOTELS

MV Aqua

The height of luxury and style on the mighty Amazon River, the 130 foot MV Aqua Riverboat was the first of its kind in Peru, custom built in 2007 by the eminent, local architect Jordi Puig. Modern and contemporary in design and air-conditioned throughout, the MV Aqua offers handsome communal areas, indoors and out, stylish cabins and a generous shaded observation deck spanning three decks.

The 8 standard suites measure 230 square feet each equipped with a separate sitting area while the master suites are larger still, 240 square feet, and situated at the front of the vessel boasting panoramic 180° views. 

The MV Aqua offers fine dining overlooking the Amazon wilderness with a unique menu created by the chef Pedro Miguel Schiaffino, one of Lima’s culinary stars, that draws on both Peruvian and European influence.
