Conrad Cartagena: Modern Luxury with a Local Artistic Flavour

By Paul Joseph

Property located just outside Colombia's UNESCO World Heritage city, the five-star Conrad Cartagena blends a modern sophisticated design with an array of eye-catching local artwork.

The 268-room resort boasts sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea and upscale amenities including seven dining outlets, South America's only TPC Golf Course, competition grade tennis courts, a nature-infused Conrad SPA, four pools, a kids club and private beach club. 

Meanwhile each room is equipped with a desk, a flat-screen TV and a private bathroom, and some also have a balcony boasting picturesque ocean views.

Discerning travellers can check into the hotel’s Ambassador Suite, which is spread over 1,356 square feet. The suite is outfitted with an azure-tiled private pool and fully-stocked outdoor dining area – ideal for travellers wanting to unwind in the Caribbean breeze in privacy.

Those wishing to curl up with a good book can participate in the hotel’s literary programs that include a Colombian Corner where guests can immerse themselves in local literature while enjoying complimentary Colombian coffee, and a literary immersion tour which invites them to explore the house and route of legendary Colombian novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez. 

The property also has a fitness centre and a Kids Club, table tennis and billiards, and a shuttle service to various points of interest in the walled city.

San Felipe de Barajas Castle is just over 8 miles from the property, while for those arriving by air Rafael Núñez International Airport is 6.8 miles away.
