Bastion Luxury Hotel, Cartagena


A boutique gem in the heart of the Cartagena.

You’d be hard pushed to find a hotel as beautiful, as full of charm and with such incredible service as the Bastion Cartagena. Throughout this beautifully elegant hotel you’ll find original features that have been painstakingly preserved and incorporated into the old-meets-new design and exquisite furnishings and décor that really complement the heritage of the building. You’ll be made to feel like royalty by the hotel’s staff members who will go above and beyond to make your stay unforgettable. And talking of the unforgettable, there’s a superb rooftop pool which affords 270-degree views of the skyline of the city, and a luxury spa.

The hotel’s restaurant El Gobernador by Rausch is a beautiful spot to start the day. An extensive buffet breakfast is offered each morning alongside a selection of à la carte options. At dinner it becomes a sophisticated dining space where you can enjoy traditional local dishes such as lionfish, a signature dish of the restaurant. You can enjoy al fresco dining and traditional Colombian dishes that are created using fresh and locally-sourced products at El Gobernador Patio.

If you’d like your accommodation to reflect the heritage of the hotel we recommend one of the Bastion or Deluxe Bastion Rooms which have high ceilings and/or exposed brick walls. For a more contemporary space you should opt for a Superior Bastion Room, Premium Bastion Room or spacious Bastion Suite.
