Sofitel Cartagena Santa Clara is a 17th century colonial jewel and a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the heart of Cartagena’s Old City. A member of Sofitel’s prestigious Legend collection, this convent-turned-hotel is a rare and luxurious icon where historical charm, exquisite architecture, and renowned service blend with gourmet cuisine, a world-class spa, and the largest pool in the Walled City for an unforgettable stay on Colombia’s Caribbean coast.
The rooms at Sofitel Cartagena Santa Clara are havens of warm, Spanish colonial tradition, each with its own flair and balcony view of the pool, indoor gardens, or sea. Equipped with complimentary wireless Internet access, LCD televisions, and Bose SoundDecks, they are monuments to modern luxury while still retaining an essence of authenticity. 19 suites in three styles present the ultimate VIP amenities, including vaulted ceilings, Hermès bath amenities, and personal butlers. Choose from the Colonial Suites overlooking the historic city center, the Legend Suites, luxurious palaces of clean white, aquamarine, and brushed silver overlooking the ocean, or the exquisite Fernando Botero Presidential Suite, a grand apartment saturated with Botero art and ambiance.
Between the cozy brasserie-style cuisine at El Claustro and the high gourmet Old World tradition and New World ingredients at Restaurante 1621, the Sofitel Cartagena Santa Clara lays claim to some of the best dining spots in the city, both led by Chef Isabelle Alexandre. While the restaurants hold their own charming atmosphere, nothing compares to dining around the hotel’s interior courtyard, a setting of colonial balconies and arches, lush tropical gardens, multiple Botero sculptures, and feisty resident toucans. The magical Caribbean atmosphere also comes to life in the hotel’s stylish bars, from the daring cocktails and live music at El Coro (The Choir), to the Pool Bar, a paradise of towering palms and glistening water situated alongside the largest swimming pool in the Walled City.
Sofitel Cartagena Santa Clara is perfectly located on a major square in the Old City, within walking distance to all of the Walled City’s main attractions. After a day of sightseeing and exploration, return to the hotel for a little pampering at the world-class SoSpa, where a tea room, solarium, and eight treatment rooms await for pleasure and relaxation.Request Information
