Contemporary accommodation in Columbia
The upscale Radisson Hotel Diamond Barranquilla, just a 40-minute taxi ride from Ernesto Cortissoz International Airport, now provides a reimagined base for exploring Colombia’s popular port city and the country’s Caribbean coast. It opened following a comprehensive renovation, which included updates to its lobby and guest rooms, with contemporary design that amplifies the hotel’s urban environment..
The property’s 132 modern rooms and suites come with free wifi and city views, along with complimentary breakfast and 24-hour room service from the hotel’s restaurant, RBG Bar & Grill. During a stay here, guests can unwind in its rooftop pool and sauna, and make the most of facilities including a business centre, fitness centre and 16 meeting rooms.
“As Radisson Hotel Group’s growth in Latin America gains momentum, we are targeting Colombia as a key destination to expand our footprint,” said Frances Gonzales, vice president of operations in Latin American for Radisson Hotel Group. “This hotel is our fourth property in the country, and we are excited to bring the Radisson brand to a vibrant urban city like Barranquilla.
“Radisson Hotel Diamond Barranquilla is an excellent representation of the safe and comfortable hospitality experience modern travellers have come to expect from our portfolio of Radisson hotels, and we can’t wait to welcome our guests to this beautiful hotel.”
Giving hotel guests a local experience
The hotel places guests within easy reach of the numerous dining and entertainment options on Street 84 and provides convenient access to all of Barranquilla’s shopping options and top attractions. The city best known for Carnival actually provides engaging cultural experiences year-round, not least through historic sites like the Customs Building; guests can also explore the nearby Magdalena River, which acts as a gateway to the Caribbean coast, and look out over the country’s biggest natural park, Via Parque Isla Salamanca.
“We are thrilled to reintroduce ourselves as Radisson Hotel Diamond Barranquilla to our guests and home city,” said Zacarias Serge, the hotel’s general manager. “As this new era of travel begins, we’ve taken many steps to ensure all who visit our beautifully renovated property can do so with confidence and peace of mind. We have a bright future ahead and look forward to delivering the new experiences and memorable moments synonymous with the Radisson brand.”
