Conrad arrives in Colombia

Marking the debut of the brand in Colombia, Hilton luxury brand Conrad Hotels and Resorts has opened an oceanfront property in Cartagena. With 109 rooms and suites and more to come, it becomes the third Conrad in Latin America.

The rooms and suites feature neutral tones, contemporary wood furniture, marble décor, and artwork from Colombian artists Pedro Ruiz and Kiko Kairuz. Large windows and high ceilings provide natural light and views of the Caribbean or the Jack Nicklaus golf course. 

Each room has a spacious bathroom with separate tub and shower, two sinks and custom toiletries. The hotel, which houses seven food and drink outlets, is due to unveil an additional 159 rooms early next year.

At 20min from Rafael Nunez International Airport, Conrad Cartagena offers more than 24,000sq ft of flexible event space, including a 9,000sq ft Grand Ballroom and five 500sq ft meetings rooms, with settings for conventions and receptions of up to 1,400 guests.

Conrad global head John Vanderslice said: “As the brand’s debut property in Colombia, Conrad Cartagena represents our continued commitment to expanding the brand’s footprint in Latin America.

“We look forward to offering guests an innovative way to stay inspired by introducing travellers to the brand’s exceptional hospitality and curating experiences that pay tribute to luxury living.”
