If you are going to Cartagena, Colombia, and you want a place that is intimate, stylish, luxurious and historic all at once, check out the Tcherassi Hotel and Spa, owned by Colombian fashion designer, Silvia Tcherassi. This is one of the few hotels where you can feel the owner’s personal touch and design philosophy embedded in every room.

Located in the heart of the old city, the hotel – a 250 year-old renovated colonial mansion – is on a narrow street lined with historic colonial houses. With only seven rooms and suites, it does not feel like a hotel; rather it is a sublime, exclusive residence for those who want to get away from the crowds.

In addition to oversized, luxurious guest accommodations featuring high ceilings, rich wood floors, private balconies and large open bathrooms, the hotel boasts a full service spa, a chic Italian restaurant (called Vera, which serves Italian coastal cuisine) and lounge overlooking a vertical garden with over 3000 local plants, four pools and a rooftop lounge and pool with 360 degree views of both the historic city and the sea.

Because the hotel has only 7 rooms, you have to reserve well in advance. Room rates range between $295-$895 per night.
