Country overview: 34 hotels on the cards in Colombia [Infographic]
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.

Located by Cartagena’s historic walled city, Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences Cartagena will open by mid-2022.
