Over the years Cartagena de Indias became a favorite destination for romantic weekends with its cobbled streets, historic center, romantic sunsets and colorful buildings. Staying in a Boutique Hotel will round of your romantic experience in Cartagena. Read here my Luxury Hotel Review – LM Luxury Boutique Hotel Cartagena.
Behind white immense wooden walls of the LM Luxury Boutique Hotel Cartagena you will perfectly round off your romantic vacations. Once entering the Hotel you find yourself in a peaceful, calm and charming ambience.
Hotel LM is located in the historic center of Cartagena in Colombia close to Plaza Santo Domingo and Café Del Mar. After getting lost in the historic city center and walking for hours through the colorful streets, enjoy the rest of the evening in the rooftop Jacuzzi with view to the illuminated Cathedral Santa Catarina de Alejandria. During the day the rooftop terrace with lounge music invites for relaxation, massage or a cocktail overlooking the roofs of the historic center with a refreshing breeze. It was one of my best time in Cartagena, just sit there, relax, recap the day you spent in beautiful Cartagena and to charge new energy for the night out!
Insider: If you want to top your romantic experience, book an overnight at the hotel’s private island located in the National Park of Rosario Island! Perfect match of vibrant & colonial city stay and secluded beach stay!
Hotel LM originally was a private house during the Spanish Republican area, now rebuilt to a luxury hotel with keeping the front walls original. Not more than 7 luxury and comfortable rooms (3xStandard, 3x Junior Suite, 1x Suite) are the success of Hotel LM and converts your experience to a privilege, as you should book in advance to make sure you catch a room!
Finest furniture from different origins equipped with Wifi TV, Air Conditioning, Ceiling Fan, Hairdryer, Safety Bos, Ipod Player, Minibar, spacious wardrobe make the rooms complete! The rooms are spread over 2 floors (ground and first floors), on the third floor you find the charming rooftop terrace with lounge and spa area and beautiful view! This is definitely the heart of the hotel.
Tip: If you are on honeymoon go for even more luxury and book the Suite with the Jacuzzi!
Start your day with a light or healthy breakfast, served in the restaurant which represents a combined style of vintage and modern. A fruit plate, fresh natural juice (e.g. fresh watermelon or maracuya) and coffee is served for everyone. You then can choose between different options like omlette, yoghurt with cereals or the traditional fried Arepa filled with egg! You should definitely try the Arepa, it is heavy, but go for traditions!
Luxury Hotel Review – LM Luxury Boutique Hotel Cartagena – Clients
You probably find couples and honeymooners at Hotel LM, but also friends travelling together treating themselves with a luxury stay and want to enjoy a quiet atmosphere. Children under 12 years are not allowed to respect client’s desire of enjoying a peaceful stay. Mostly people from the United States and Brazil finding their way to Hotel LM and sometimes Europeans, for example I met a nice couple from Germans during my stay. If you are for business in Cartagena, this hotel might be perfect for you, as the privacy allows you to concentrate on yourself and not being disturbed by a group of other travelers. You can sit by the pool at the entrance, restaurant, in your room and take a break at the rooftop jaccuzzi to cool off and get a fresh mind!
