Description

Set by the azure waters of the Caribbean, walled Cartagena de Indias is steeped in centuries of history and surely one of Latin America’s most beautiful, vibrant, and romantic cities. Now there is a gem of a small hotel to use as a base for discovering its charms! Casa San Agustin is located within walking distance of Barrio San Diego, renowned for its restaurants, bars and chic boutiques.

From original frescoes in the library to centuries-old wood-beamed ceilings in the guest rooms, Casa San Agustín’s art and architecture evoke the city’s rich history as 17th century Spanish stronghold. Located within Cartagena’s walled Old Town, the hotel features 24 guest rooms and 6 suites, each taking its color cue from the nearby Caribbean Sea. Shades of soft blue mix with specially commissioned furnishings and fixtures to create spaces of singular beauty and originality. Many of the hotel’s guest rooms and suites can be configured into two- or three-bedroom suites, making them ideal for friends and family traveling together.

The country’s abundance of seafood and exotic ingredients inspires the contemporary coastal Colombian cuisine of Alma, the hotel’s signature restaurant, and its charming bar and nearby alfresco courtyard – two picturesque settings for conch, ceviche and custom-crafted cocktails.

Accommodation

Influenced by the subtle shades of the nearby Caribbean Sea, the 30 guest rooms and six spacious suites feature a blue-hued palette accented by natural fabrics and rich dark woods. Ironwork beds, chandeliers and sconces specially commissioned by local artists share space with vintage pieces, art and artifacts. Some guest rooms have private plunge pools or Jacuzzis and all feature luxurious Frette linens and citrus-scented Ortigia bath amenities.
