Sofitel Legend Hotel Santa Clara is an opulent colonial style property situated within the historic city walls of Cartagena.

Sofitel Santa Clara is situated in a lavishly converted 17th century convent  within the city walls of old Cartagena. From this unique vantage point it offers spell-binding views of the historic centre and the glistening Caribbean Sea.

The colonial architecture and contemporary furnishings – such as the pretty courtyard and bar within the cloisters – create an elegant and welcoming base for your visit to this most romantic and evocative of Colombian cities. It delivers on its promise of the high standard of service to be expected from the prestigious Sofitel brand. In fact it is categorised as a Sofitel Legend, one of only five in the world, each of which incorporates aspects of the rich cultural heritage of its location.  

The large guest rooms are decorated in a cool, contemporary Caribbean style with colours reflecting the translucent light and the sea on the other side of the fortified walls. The swimming pool is superb: the largest of any property in the walled city. It's a pleasure to sit beside it in the stately courtyard sipping a cocktail. In line with its luxury, top-of-the-range status, there's also a Jacuzzi, health club with a sauna and spa and two fine restaurants serving Italian and French food. The hotel attracts distinguished guests: Prince Charles and his entourage (including the UK and Colombian Ambassadors) stayed here in 2014.
