Bovedas de Santa Clara is a smaller, more boutique-styled sister to the Sofitel Santa Clara, with which it shares stunning facitlities.   

You get the best of both worlds at this agreeable hotel in the old walled city of Cartagena:  good-value accommodation, comfortable and stylish if not overly luxurious, and access to the facilities and social areas of the top-of-the-range sister hotel Sofitel Santa Clara close by, including its exquisite pool, spa and restaurant.

The hotel shows off a pleasing fusion of republican and contemporary design, with scrupulous attention to detail including Egyptian cotton sheets and fresh fruit in the 18 individually conceived guest rooms and suites – most of which have carved balconies with lovely sea- or garden views.  The rooms are flooded with light – white is the predominant colour throughout.

There is a Jacuzzi and solarium on the top floor - To enhance your stay, you'll find the friendly and helpful service usually associated with smaller, upmarket boutique hotels.

What our clients say

  • Our favourite organised trip was probably Cocora Valley. Absolutely stunning and the trek was tough, but well worth it. Our guide knew a lot about the wildlife and flowers too

    MB, Oxford
  • From the trips arranged by JLA, we both found the Amazonas region wonderful. It was quite emotional seeing the Amazon River for the first time and floating around the tributaries,…

    MD, London
  • It was a great trip, a nice balance of activity and free time and we felt we saw several different sides of Colombia. 

    MJ, E14
  • Colombia was superb. A wonderful variety of scenery and cultures, and people trying their hardest to live normal lives and welcome visitors very genuinely.

    JK, Basingstoke
  • Highlight: Cartagena: as romantic a destination as I had hoped.

    DG, Sheffield
  • Highlight: The beauty of Cartagena's streets. The historic district of La Candelaria in Bogota. And finally standing in the main square of Villa de Leyva.

Our Expert's Opinion

The beauty of staying at this hotel was that you benefited from the boutique, modern style as well as being within the walled city of Cartagena but you could also take advantage of the facilities of the sister hotel - Sofitel Santa Clara - which was one of the best pools in Cartagena. I recommend requesting a room with a sea view.
