After an extensive two year restoration and renovation, a 250 year old colonial mansion comes to life in the heart of Cartagena's old city in fashion designer Silvia Tcherassi's first hotel. With seven unique rooms and suites, The Tcherassi Hotel + Spa reignites the magical setting of a bygone era while delivering all of the modern amenities and comforts discerning travelers have come to expect today. In addition to over-sized, luxurious guest accommodations featuring high ceilings, rich wood floors, private balconies and large open bathrooms, the hotel boasts a full service spa, 40-seat chic Italian restaurant and lounge overlooking a vertical garden with over 3000 local plants, four pools and a roof deck with 360 degree views of both the historic city and the sea. Offering either views of the city or the verdant vertical garden, the large rooms (ranging in size from 400 sq ft to 1200 sq ft) feature restored original stone walls, dramatic high ceilings and private walk-out balconies creating an open and airy Caribbean feel. Seven unique guestrooms, including a large suite with a private pool, occupy the four-story mansion providing an exclusive, private oasis for discerning travelers. All of the rooms have been designed by Silvia Tcherassi and named for elegant fabrics used in her fashion collections; providing just one example of how Tcherassi incorporates fashion into the hotel's design. Wellness reigns supreme at The Tcherassi Hotel + Spa, which has carved out a portion of the historic mansion's space to focus on relaxation and rejuvenation. Whether in the dedicated full service treatment room or in the comfort and privacy of your own guestroom, The Tcherassi Spa offers a variety of more than 30 treatments rooted in a holistic approach to sooth both mind and body. A French Culinary Institute graduate and one-time protege of acclaimed Chef Mario Batali, Daniel Castano brings his authentic Italian coastal cuisine to VERA. The restored, original 250 year old stone wall and a vertical garden consisting of over 3000 local plants provide diners a perfect framework to sit and enjoy Cartagena's best new restaurant. The search for inspiration and relaxation is easily achieved as over 30 staff members cater to each guest's every whim. Although The Tcherassi Hotel + Spa is an oasis within itself, it is the perfect place from which to enjoy the vibrant colors and culture of Cartagena de Indias.
