In the heart of the old city of Cartagena, in Colombia, Casa San Agustín successfully blends an evocative, Spanish colonial building, with the amenities and comforts that the modern traveller demands.
The library ― where tea is served every afternoon ― still displays many of the original frescoes and the rooms still display centuries old wood beams. This level of respect for heritage and history gives a unique ambience to Casa San Agustín, and creates a romantic setting few could equal. The private dip-pools in premium rooms don’t hurt either.
Impeccable service and attention to detail make Casa San Agustín the perfect base from which explore and experience Cartagena, without ever breaking character. On Wednesday evenings, the hotel’s restaurant, Alma, fills with the sound of live music which is the perfect accent for an altogether lovely stay.
