The Sofitel Cartagena Santa Clara Hotel on the Colombian Caribbean Coast

By Brody Patterson


Updated on

Originally built as a convent in 1621, the Sofitel Cartagena Santa Clara is now reborn as a luxury hotel in one of Columbia’s most picturesque locations.

Its walls used to shield the place from attackers, but now their main goal is act a symbolic threshold between the outside world with all the stress and the cares, and the inside of this fabulous resort where all of those things magically disappear. Contributing to this fairy tale vibe is the historic décor, with colonial arches, columns, and balconies providing a beautiful backdrop for a great holiday. The accommodations, however, bring you right back to the 21st century: there are 122 guest room (including 17 suites) boasting all the modern amenities of a luxurious modern hotel, yet still keeping a hint of that colonial charm that makes the Sofitel Cartagena Santa Clara such a special place.

The resort also features a couple of impressive restaurants, El Claustro and Restaurante 1621, which offer both fine Old World cuisine, as well as unforgettable local dishes. There are also a few bars where you can relax and enjoy a nice drink. And speaking of relaxing, there’s also an 8600-square-foot spa with 8 treatment rooms, gym, tea area, and solarium.
