by | 25 Dec 2021 | Pipeline, Projects

Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Cartagena

According to the TOPHOTELPROJECTS construction database, 34 projects are in the works across Colombia, with 2023 set to see the largest number of completions.

In the coming years, 34 hotels with 5,751 rooms will open across Colombia, our dedicated researchers report. We find out more about these projects – and consider which ones are worth adding to your watchlist.

Steady growth for Colombia’s hotel market

While all of 2021’s openings appear to have been completed already, six launches and 1,012 rooms are being pencilled in for 2022. But with 16 scheduled openings and 2,711 keys, 2023 will see by far the largest number of debuts in the near future.

Things will slow down in 2024 – currently, only two properties with 202 rooms are due to go live that year – and ten projects with 1,826 keys are in the pipeline for 2025 and beyond.

Of the 34 new hotels, 23 will be in the four-star category, while only 11 fall into the five-star segment.

Top urban growth markets in Colombia

The attractive coastal city of Cartagena will see the most growth overall, with seven projects and 1,119 rooms on the books here.

Elsewhere, Cali, known for its lively salsa dancing scene, will see five new properties with 750 rooms go live.

Colombian hotels that you need to know about

Located by Cartagena’s historic walled city, Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Cartagena will open by mid-2022. The scheme will occupy several sensitively restored, culturally significant buildings dating as far back as the 16th century in the lively Getsemaní neighbourhood. Onsite, travellers will find 131 rooms and suites, six unique AvroKO-designed F&B concepts with both indoor and terrace dining, a stunning atrium lounge at the heart of Club Cartagena, a rooftop pool, a spa and a fitness centre.

Just a bit further east, Hilton Santa Marta will launch in early 2021. Ideal for both leisure and business travellers visiting Colombia’s oldest surviving city, the 17-storey property will offer 261 guestrooms, executive rooms and suites. Among the facilities being promised are a signature restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, an executive lunch restaurant, four bars, an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness centre, a world-class spa and 11,000 sq ft of flexible meeting space – including a 4,500 sq ft ballroom.
