Ananda Hotel Boutique
In a superb location within Cartagena’s picturesque cobblestoned old town, Ananda Hotel Boutique is a beautifully restored colonial house dating back to the 16th century. Ananda means “bliss” in the Sanskrit language and this serene theme is weaved throughout the hotel.
Décor is white-washed walls, paired with dark wood, splashes of colour and potted plants. Its 23 luxurious suites are charming and feature dark wood, wood-beamed ceilings, Egyptian cotton, and are either street facing or have a view onto the internal courtyards.
The restaurant serves up delicious Mediterranean dishes in the courtyard under the shade of a large almond tree or in the atmospheric dining room. Its rooftop is a real winner, offering stunning panoramic views of the city skyline towards the ocean. The top floor also boasts an inviting pool surrounded by cosy daybeds.
There is also a modern spa offering a wide range of treatments. Minutes from the buzzing streets of Cartagena, this is an oasis of relaxation within one of South America’s most beautiful cities.
