Colombia's capital city, brimming with choices of the coolest bars, restaurants, galleries, museums and of course, the best hotels.
Simple design, elegant interiors and right in the loveliest neighbourhood in the city. With only a few bedrooms, a fully stocked kitchen and sitting rooms; this really is a cosy home away from home for those looking to experience Bogotá like a true local.
Set on one of the oldest and most historic streets in the city, the colonial architecture and old school charm of La Opera are hard to resist. Perfect base from which to explore the museums, galleries, restaurants and historic buildings all by foot. Don't miss the incredible views from the rooftop.

The land of eternal spring, spend heavenly days getting lost in nature amongst some of the most breathtaking landscapes Colombia has to offer.
The definition of escapism. A picture perfect spot nestled amongst the hills, with views of the Central Andes Mountain. If you're looking to recuperate in nature and take in the fresh air, this is the place for you. P.S. Be sure to take a tour of the cacao farm.
Right in the heart of the coffee region, Sazagua has a fabulous family feel, so much so you'll find it hard to leave. Each room is different, so pick carefully... Kate's favourite is the 'Villa'; with its own little private patio, fire pit, jacuzzi and hammock. Mix this with an array of daily excursions to coffee farms, horse riding, picnics or a simply relax with a day in the spa. What's not to love?

Cobbled streets overflowing with colour, shady squares to hide in the heat of the day, and some of the best restaurants in the country. The only old town to be made a UNESCO heritage site, you really can't go wrong with Cartagena.
Classical Cartagena style luxury, Casa San Agustin is a place you'll want to come back to time and time again. With some of the most gorgeous architecture sitting right in the centre of the old town, this is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle and unwind.
A hidden gem if ever there was one. Every single room is totally unique (in both design and price point!) and are all bursting with character. It even boasts one of the best rooftop pools in the city, the perfect place to sit and watch the sunset across the rooftops.

Just a short boat ride from Cartagena, lie the magical Rosario Islands. True island paradise for snorkeling, swimming with plankton, kayaking amongst the mangroves or simply sitting and listening to the sound of the ocean.
Breathtaking views of white sandy beaches and turquoise waters from huts high in the trees make this place the ultimate luxury retreat. What's more there's great cuisine, friendly staff and a huge focus on sustainability & eco-conscious living.
True rustic island charm and offering up everything you could dream of in a beach getaway. Whether that's sitting reading you book all day or heading out fishing at dawn, this truly is somewhere we could stay forever. Choose your room (or hut) carefully as some are far more private and luxuious than others!

Well not quite, but thereabouts! Just beyond the city of Santa Marta lies endless stretches of jungle-meets-beach. The perfect place to head into the national park for some adventures, trek up into the mountains, practice some surfing and try some local cuisine. (Be warned though, the sea can be rough so make sure there is a pool if lounging is what you're after!)
A 5 star hotel with garden views and a private beach. What makes this place so special though is the unique hut-style lodgings, idyllic jungle location and ability to be at one with nature; the perfect setting for pure relaxation. You're welcome.
Tranquillity & luxury at its finest. This exquisite villa is perfectly placed for incredible beach sunsets and distant mountain views, as well as being surrounded by lush, tropical greenery. An ode to Colombia's natural landscape.
