The privacy at this a complex of 19 brightly painted bungalows fronting a secluded stretch of Colombia’s Caribbean Riviera has made it popular among Latin American celebrities such as pop star Shakira and model Natalia París. Oversize rooms are minimalist (white walls and floors; beds draped with sheer netting; pink hammocks), and a tiny spa offers spice-infused massages and mud scrubs. Ask the front-desk staff to arrange a guided trek to mountaintop waterfalls in nearby Tayrona National Park. After-hours, head for Koralia’s open-air bar, where rum and salsa music flow freely all night long.
