Why Stay At Tcherassi Hotel & Spa
Experience Cartagena, Colombia's colonial charm, white-sand beaches, and sultry nightlife all within reach of designer Silvia Tcherassi's namesake property.
Colombian designer Silvia Tcherassi converted a Spanish-colonial mansion in the Old City of this walled colonial hot spot into a cool, white-on-white urban escape. The place pops with funky decorative accents ("chandeliers" of interlocking plastic rings; tasseled bedspreads) reminiscent of the texture-intensive accessories from her collections, and inspiration is eclectic and international: the seven rooms and suites are named after fabrics, reflecting Tcherassi's background in fashion; the 30 spa treatments are based in South American traditions, from the Colombian Coffee Wrap to the warm bamboo massage; and the cuisine at Vera, the in-house restaurant, is haute Italian. Like Tcherassi's detailed handiwork, service at the hotel is subtle and impeccable.
Start your day with a five-course breakfast of fresh fruit and fried meats served in the courtyard, adjacent to a small-scale swimming pool and a three-story vertical garden.
Come afternoon, order a frothy limonada de coco—fresh lime juice blended with coconut cream—while relaxing on a shaded daybed on the hotel's roof deck.
Arrive at Rafael Nuñez International Airport (CTG) which is approximately 7 miles from the hotel. Anticipate between 20 and 30 minutes of travel time depending on traffic.Calle Del Sargento Mayor N 6-21, Cartagena de Indias, Bolivar, Colombia

Why We Love Cartagena de Indias
Imagine Havana with a fraction of the population, or San Juan untouched by modernity, or New Orleans without the sophomores on spring break. Cartagena is both crumbling and majestic, and only a 2 1/2-hour flight from Miami.
Tickets for two $1.
Local Scene: Arepas (Colombian cornmeal patties) sizzle on griddles in restaurants and food carts around town. Get your morning fix with a butter-suffused, cheese-oozing, egg-topped arepa de huevo at Gato Negro, an airy café tucked in a 300-year-old house.
30-39 Calle San Andres.
Breakfast for two $8.
Where to Drink: Cartageneros know how to party, and nowhere is the rumba more vibrant than in Getsemaní, an up-and-coming barrio just outside the Old City. Don't miss live music and cocktails at Bazurto Social Club.
