Cartagena’s first luxury hotel is set to open on Wednesday as a joint venture between Hyatt Regency and the Colombian government.
The hotel, the first to open in South America, will be the first hotel built by a Colombian government and the first in Cartageno de Indias, a coastal city on Colombia’s Atlantic coast.
The Cartagenians have made an attempt to attract tourists to CartagENA, which sits on the Atlantic coast, by hosting the annual Cartagenos Cup.
The competition is held every two years, but this year it is being held in Cartagos and will be a four-day event.
The resort has a reception area for up to 100 guests, with the hotel’s owner, the Colombian Embassy, hosting the event on the hotel property.
A few hundred guests will also be able to stay in the resort for the day, which is part of the $150 million plan to revitalise Cartagel.
