Sofitel Legend Cartagena Opens After Three Years of Renovation
The Sofitel Legend Cartagena Santa Clara opened after three years of careful restoration. The property, a former monastery built by Clarist nuns in the seventeenth century, is located in the middle of Cartagena, Colombia.
The hotel has 122 guestrooms and 17 suites. Each room has white washed walls, natural wood ceilings and floors, and hints of soft corals, mints, and turquoises.
One of the suites is the 1,539 square foot (142 square meter) Fernando Botero Suite, named for the Colombian artist. The suite contains several of his pieces.
The hotel’s restaurant, 1621, a tribute to the year the monastery was built in, is located in the former dining room of the Clarist nuns. The property also houses El Coro Lounge Bar, which offers signature cocktails, cigars, and live music on weekends, as well as the El Claustro brasserie.
The hotel also has a spa which offers treatments from around the world. There is also a pool, Turkish bath, fitness center, and dedicated tea area.
The property is the fourth to open under the Sofitel Legend brand, a collection of historical properties around the world. Its predecessors are the Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi, Sofitel Legend the Grand Amsterdam, and the Sofitel Legend Old Cataract Aswan.
