In a city known for having some of the best-preserved colonial buildings, churches and squares in the Americas, historical Casa San Agustin fits right in. This carefully crafted boutique hotel is as atmospheric as they come, all terracotta tiles and traditional wooden balconies, original beams, locally inspired crafts and artwork adorning the walls, and full respect paid to the building’s original architecture throughout. Constructed around an aqueduct that dates back over 300 years, Casa San Agustin exudes the cultural heritage and preserved past that Cartagena is loved for. But this is every bit the boutique luxury hotel too. There’s the exquisite – and well known – seafood restaurant, Alma, a beautiful swimming pool that weaves around charming courtyards, the Aurum Spa for relaxation therapies, a hammam and vitality pool, and large, beautifully decorated guestrooms to unwind in here at Casa San Agustin. All of this, in the heart of Cartagena’s Old Town, help create a truly special stay in such an absorbing part of Colombia.
