The seven-room luxury hotel set within a restored 250-year old mansion in Cartagena's old city is the first collaboration between Colombian fashion icon Silvia Tcherassi and Miami-based CF Hospitality and has taken both the media and luxury travelers by storm since its debut late Fall of 2009.
For the fifth year, Travel + Leisure magazine set out to find the best new hotels in the world to place on the highly coveted "It List." From pioneering architecture to authentic regional experiences, they selected 45 properties that they consider to be reshaping their respective destinations. With its innovative design, impeccable restoration and highly personalized service, The Tcherassi Hotel + Spa was a perfect fit.
Sharing Travel + Leisure's good taste and keen sense of innovativeness, Conde Nast Traveler combed through thousands of hotels that debuted in the last year, stayed anonymously and selected 134 properties across 55 countries that exemplify the art of hotel innovation with the right blend of 'style, service, technology, and transporting aura.'
"An incredible amount of hard work, creativity and passion went into this project," commented Ilan Segal, Managing Partner of Tcherassi Hotels. "And it is beyond rewarding to be recognized by the world's foremost authority on luxury travel as one of the best in the world."
