    Reconnect and refresh your spirit amidst the white sand beaches and turquoise waters of Colombia’s Barú Island at the largest and - at the same time - most exquisite of Cartagena island retreats.

    Placed sensitively amongst the mangroves of Baru, Hotel Las Islas Cartagena, is a spectacular beach property that caters to honeymooners and families for most of the year but can be rented in its entirety for the most special of occasions.

    These ocean front bungalows are the epitome of Caribbean peace and tranquility. A short boat ride south of Cartagena, the resort has 32 of these stylish tree houses settled sensitively in the tropical dry forest that occupies more than 4 km of Colombia's Caribbean shores. 

    Offering up more than just fantastic sea views and easy access to Colombia's Caribbean waters, this property is an idyllic escape that places harmony with nature at its heart.

    Slip into your laid-back Caribbean vibe on arrival and spend the rest of the weekend exploring the forest, slipping from one beach to the next on your own bike or jump a ride on the golf carts that scurry people between the island's spa and bungalows.

    As you weave through the trails, there's a delightful introduction to the natural riches of the world's second most biodiverse country.  

    This Is Cartagena's talented team of travel advisors can help with all the logistical arrangements of getting your group to and from this stunning Caribbean resort. Rent a boat and take your time hopping from one island to the next. There's 30 islands to visit as well as Colombia's most impressive bird sanctuary.

    A fleet of luxury yachts or speedboats can be rented, a neat addition if you explore the idyllic Rosario Islands National Park during your lazy days in Colombia's Caribbean paradise.

    When it comes to rations, there are no concerns about going hungry while stranded at this lush beach retreat. Las Islas has three great restaurants and a bar, hidden strategically throughout the property, with friendly staff on hand to pander to your culinary needs. 

    Sip cocktails in the panoramic bar and watch the sun set on another heavenly day in this luxury Caribbean haven.

    All of the tree house bungalows offer an elevated sea view and its own jacuzzi with furnished deck and hammock area.

    Between 70-80 sq m in size the bungalows have either a King or two Twin beds, air conditioning, complimentary Wi-Fi and a flat-screen TV.

    Bathrooms are stocked with premium Hermes products, freshwater shower and a robe and slippers.

    If your booking in a group and you need more than one bungalow reach out to one of our talented team to help make it happen.

LOCATION

  • Barú Island

    If you're slightly disappointed with the beaches in Cartagena, Isla Baru will exceed your Caribbean beach expectations.

    With the exception of Playa Blanca and Playa Azul, the most prized and expansive of Baru's beaches, the white sand beaches on Cartagena's biggest island other are small, intimate and often lined with mangroves. 

    Before Colombia's Spanish conquerors and their African slaves opened up the Canal del Dique channel between Cartagena and the River Magdalena in 1650, Isla Baru was a peninsula connected to the mainland. 

    Located a short 45-minute speedboat ride away and re-connected by land once again by a bridge in 2014, the Island of Baru has more than enough powdery stretches of white sand to keep the most demanding beach bum happy.

    The island's biggest meeting point is the protected cove of Cholon, where drunken sun worshipers love to let rip with some water bound tail-gating on private boats equipped with blaring sound systems and party as if they were auditioning for a hip hop video.

    If you're craving something altogether more laid-back, the richest families in Colombia are building some lovely beach front properties and beach clubs on Baru to make it the premier beach destination in Colombia.

    Jean Claude Bessudo has built arguably the most impressive. His Hotel Las Islas opened in 2018 elevating the beach stay options in Baru considerably.

    There's a string of others following suit with plans for a luxury marina planned attract a jet-setting, yacht-owning crowd to Colombia's Caribbean coastline. 

    When organising an overnight stay in Baru it's always a good idea to rent a boat to get you and your group to and from your hotel or beach retreat.

    While you can now arrive by land to most places on the island, taking your own boat enables you and your group to spend at least one day visiting the Rosario Islands, an archipelago of 27 islands a short 15 minute ride from the best beach pads available for rent in Baru. 

    If you are in a hurry and feel like an adrenalin rush to start or finish your beach vacation in Colombia then our talented team of travel advisors can organise a helicopter ride to some of the most exclusive places to stay on the island - very useful if you're in a rush to catch your private jet and don't want to lose precious time topping up your tan.
