Casa San Agustin
Casa San Agustin is one of our favourite properties in Cartagena. Set within a colonial mansion, the house maintains and reflects much of the city's rich culture and heritage.
This intimate property has somehow delivered the almost impossible balance of a chic and relaxed atmosphere in equal measures. Just 20 guestrooms and 11 suites have been expertly designed to preserve authentic Colombian style with modern services and needs of today’s most discerning travellers. From original frescoes in the Library to centuries-old wood-beamed ceilings in the guest rooms, Casa San Agustín’s architecture evokes the city’s rich history and opulence of the 17th century.
Head down to the private Caribbean beach for a taste of tranquil sea air and local cuisine or simply lounge by the hotel’s courtyard pool when you want to escape the heat of the day. The Alma bar and restaurant are known throughout the city as being one of the best and the spa is of equal standard with a never ending list of treatments delivered by world-class therapists.
From here you are in prime position to explore this electric and vibrant town from the thriving art scene to some of the finest restaurants in Colombia and, of course, as much salsa as you can dare to swing and way to.
