Tcherassi Hotel & Spa

6-21 Calle del Sargento Mayor
Cartagena, Colombia
TEL: 57-5-664.4445

Colombian designer Silvia Tcherassi converted a Spanish-colonial mansion in the Old City of this walled colonial hot spot into a cool, white-on-white urban escape. The place pops with funky decorative accents (“chandeliers” of interlocking plastic rings; tasseled bedspreads) reminiscent of the texture-intensive accessories from her collections, and inspiration is eclectic and international: the seven rooms and suites are named after fabrics, reflecting Tcherassi’s background in fashion; the 30 spa treatments are based in South American traditions, from the Colombian Coffee Wrap to the warm bamboo massage; and the cuisine at Vera, the in-house restaurant, is haute Italian. Like Tcherassi’s detailed handiwork, service at the hotel is subtle and impeccable.

Room to Book:

Sylvia Tcherassi’s favorite, of course: Ziberline, with exposed brick, double-height ceilings, a balcony overlooking the busy street scene, and a big soaking tub as well.

Insider Tip:

Come afternoon, order a frothy limonada de coco—fresh lime juice blended with coconut cream—while relaxing on a shaded daybed on the hotel’s roof deck.
