  • This is What We Love

    • Admiring a wonderful art collection over a French-Caribbean breakfast in the lush vegetation of the hotel's colonial patio
    • Being embedded with the celebrities during Cartagena's most important festivals
    • Haute-cuisine dining at the hotel's superb restaurant, 1621
    • An expansive swimming pool that makes it difficult to leave the hotel
    • Strawberries and champagne in the hot-tub with a view of the sun sinking the Caribbean sea
    • Warming up for a lively evening in town with a killer cocktail at El Coro Lounge Bar
    • Getting great service in Cartagena. Not always easy
    • Booking a stay to coincide with the Sofitel Santa Clara Wine Week, a culinary delight that's worth coming to town for
    • The full-body chocolate treatment and Sisley spa sensation at Cartagena's premium in-house spa, SoSpa
  • What you Need to Know

    • Classic rooms are not over-generous in size but connecting rooms can be arranged to accommodate families
    • Cartagena's beaches are disappointing. For the idyllic Caribbean beach experience you will need to hire a yatch and head to the Rosario Islands
    • Baths in the classic rooms are for pint-sized guests for a good soak you will need to book one of the hotel's 19 suites

    Cartagena's rising stock as a Caribbean playground for millionaire jetsetters owes much to the consummate colonial charms of the Sofitel Legend Santa Clara, the luxurious former convent that transformed the fortunes of the city's historic centre.

    Abstention has been consigned to the past in a four-centuries old spiritual retreat now dedicated to an unashamed 21st century pursuit of pleasure.

     From the shimmering, gold-leafed tapestry by Olga de Amaral that greets you at the entrance to Fernando Botero's flirtatious chubby bronze in the patio and the elegant linen threads designed by Francesca Miranda for the staff, this is a hotel that prides itself on attention to detail.

     The hotel's unerring standards have made it the home-from-home for world leaders, Colombian and international celebrities and a luxury base camp for the headliners of Cartagena's most important festivals, the Hay Festival Cartagena, Cartagena Classical Music Festival and the Cartagena Film Festival.

    Most of the hotel's 124 rooms and suites flank the swimming pool that dominates the newer, Republican wing of the property. For a little extra headroom and views of the Caribbean book one of the superior rooms on upper levels nestled into the whitewashed eaves.

    It's expansive in-house SoSpa, fine-dining restaurant 1621 and superior drinks destination, El Coro Lounge Bar, are the luxury icing on an already sumptuous cake.

LOCATION

  • Centro

    Cartagena's nerve centre serves up breathtaking colonial architecture, the city's top attractions, finest hotels, eateries and drinking dens as well as being the administrative and cultural heart of the city.

    Constructed on one of three islands that are now connected to the Colombian mainland, the historic walled city was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.

    Ever since UNESCO made the announcement the money has poured into restoring the incredible architecture contained inside its historic walls. Wandering aimlessly through Cartagena's historic center is without question it's one of the highlights of any trip to Colombia. 

    Centro has lost none of its importance over the last three centuries, thanks to the universal allure of its colonial pomp and the concentration of government buildings, hotels, tourist attractions, bars and restaurants in the area. 

    While the riches of the region no longer flow through Cartagena on their way from Colombia, Peru and Ecuador to Spain, the city has maintained its position as the colonial gem in Colombia's Caribbean crown.

    Cartagena's best hotels and restaurants have taken over the uber-casas built by slave traders and Spanish plunderers in the 17th century.

    The richest residents knocked up stunning two and three-storey mansions by the westernmost tip of the walled city, where they bagged the sea breeze, added security, papal pardons and the chance to get an early first whiff of pirates.

    While it was home to the slave traders of yesteryear, today not much has changed with only those at the very top of Colombia's rich list able to afford to maintain these opulent houses in their original residential state.

    As well as hosting the most opulent churches and principal tourist landmarks, Centro is home to the best bars and restaurants in Cartagena.

    Standout foodie destinations include restaurants Don Juan, La Vitrola and Maria and bars and nightclubs like Alquimico, Cafe del MarLa Movida and La Jugada.
