A stylish and sophisticated hotel with one of Medellin’s best restaurants.

El Cielo is a boutique hotel in the affluent neighbourhood of El Poblado and is the creation of internationally renowned chef Juan Manuel Barrientos, whose restaurant of the same name graces the ground floor and is one of the best in Medellin, if not Colombia.

Rooms are modern and stylish with wood veneer walls, marble floors, king-size beds, and fine Egyptian cotton linens. Junior and Luxury Suites also have an in-room bathtub. The hotel's verdant entrance with a towering five-storey vertical garden provides an air of tranquillity and there is a small roof-top pool and bar with sweeping views of the city's skyline.

No stay would be complete without dinner at El Cielo Restaurant and their multi-stage tasting menu offers a highly original spin on centuries-old recipes.

What our clients say

  • Highlight?: Difficult!  As a general tourist, probably the Salt Cathedral, bur personally the return to Pereira after 42 years!

    JPM, London
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Impossible to pick one place/moment.  A very varied and interesting few weeks.  Cartagena was definitely a highlight.

    SJA, Malvern
  • 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
  • The whole trip was really enjoyable, the amount of wildlife (turtles, crocodiles, armadillo, anteater, monkeys etc etc!) and scenery we saw met all expectations. All well organised and minor problems…

    HT, Cardiff
  • Colombia is a fascinating country with very friendly people. It is opening up to tourism, after years of conflict, and offers the prospect of an exciting, varied and economic holiday. 

    JH, Chester
  • Barichara and the walk to Guane. Also the village of Raquira.
