Casa del Coliseo


    The details

    Decked out with Miami-nased designer Juan Carlos Arcila Duque's contemporary panache, this beautiful colonial retreat occupies a special corner of Cartagena's historic centre. Currently undergoing a serious revamp, Casa del Coliseo's new set up will now permit couples, as well as families and large groups to enjoy this luxury bolthole. 

    Despite its prime position in the thick of the action in close proximity to the best restaurants in the city - Don Juan, La Perla and Frank & Frank - this is a low profile property that offers big groups and couples plenty of privacy.

    Made up for four apartments, Arcila Duque's design throw up some spectacular public meeting places, like the grand salon on the second floor but the thoughtful divisions allows guests to enjoy ultimate privacy in their elegantly decorated rooms.

    The 17th century mansion is distributed evenly into four wings made up of two apartments, five deluxe hotel rooms and one suite, all spread over three floors.

    A wonderfully sculpted spiral staircase connects the rooms with a spacious roof terrace and barbeque area, which is the cherry on the cake for sun-lovers and visitors looking for a secluded colonial getaway.

    Arcia Duque throws together plenty of contemporary European touches including vintage chandeliers and mirrors to uplift the muted linen soft furnishings that eschew the maximalist scream that became the trend for many of Cartagena's early 21st century refits.

    Cooking classes, yacht hire and massages are not included in the price of the house rental but can be arranged through This Is Cartagena's in-house concierge services. Just ask how it works.
