Rooms & Suites: 7 Rooms & Suites
Situated in the heart of Cartagena's Old City along the Caribbean coast, The Tcherassi Hotel + Spa is tucked on a colorful, narrow street lined with historic colonial houses.
After an extensive two-year restoration, Latin fashion designer Silvia Tcherassi has transformed the 250-year-old colonial mansion into her first namesake hotel. With seven unique rooms and suites, The Tcherassi Hotel + Spa features four pools, a 40-seat restaurant, a vertical garden with over 3000 plants, a roofdeck with 360 degree views of the city and the sea, as well as a full service spa. Moreover, it reignites the magical setting of a bygone era while delivering all of the modern amenities and comforts discerning travelers have come to expect today. Although The Tcherassi Hotel + Spa is an oasis within itself, it is the perfect place from which to enjoy the vibrant colors and culture of Cartagena.
"Colombian designer Silvia Tcherassi converted a Spanish-colonial mansion in the Old City into a white-on-white urban escape that pops with funky decorative accents (chandeliers of interlocking plastic rings; tasseled bedspreads) reminiscent of the texture-intensive accessories from her collections. The seven rooms are named after fabrics, and like Tcherassi's detailed handiwork, service at the hotel is subtle and impeccable. Start your day, as we did, with a five-course breakfast of fresh fruit and fried carnes in the courtyard, adjacent to a small-scale swimming pool and a three-story vertical garden." - Travel + Leisure It List 2010
"Colombian fashion designer Silvia Tcherassi, whose vibrant and sensual garments are staples for well-heeled Latin American women, has extended her sophisticated aesthetic to this 250-year-old mansion that's now easily the most exclusive hotel in Colombia. Each of the seven oversized rooms has an open tropical feel and come with 14-foot wood-beamed ceilings, artful touches such as bedspreads designed from dress labels, and walk-out balconies that look at the inner courtyards of the tiled roofs and flowering terraces of the Centro Historico. Against the hotel's mostly white scheme are splashes of color like a strategically placed red rose, four sparkling pools, and a dramatic vertical garden with more than 3,000 native plants that covers a wall on an entire side of the property. Staff welcome you with lemonade infused with yerba buena. Chef Daniel Castaño, a Mario Batali disciple, helms the 40-seat coastal Italian restaurant Vera, while the holistic spa offers treatments utilizing Colombian coffee, chocolate, gems, and bamboo. Which room to book: Gazar, the tri-level, 1,200-square-foot penthouse suite with a private rooftop pool, a 250-square-foot bathroom with indoor/outdoor shower, and one-of-a-kind furniture designed by Silvia Tcherassi herself." - Conde Nast Traveler Hot List 2010
