First day for reservations at Colombia's new Tcherassi Hotel!
Today is the first day the new Tcherassi Hotel + Spa in Cartagena, Colombia is taking reservations! This new property is the brainchild of Latin fashion designer Silvia Tcherassi and will be located in Cartagena de Indias, along Colombia's Caribbean coast. When the doors open later this fall, guests will be treated to the combination of two years of renovation along with the building's 250 year history. The colonial mansion will bear touches of Tcherassi's design prowess, and old world charm will not come at the expense of contemporary comfort.
This home-like hotel will consist of seven oversized guestrooms and suites – all named for the fabrics used in Tcherassi's apparel collections. High ceilings, private balconies, rich wood floors and open bathrooms are the norm in this hotel, and restored walls sparkle thanks to a hint of gold dusting.
No detail is too small for the Tcherassi Hotel + Spa. His and hers private label Tcherassi bathrobes will be available in every room, and custom-made amenities with Silvia's fragrance will come in large containers rather than travel-sized bottles.
Fabric, understandably, is set to play a major role in this new property. Special fabric flowers will be given to guests, and each room will have pendant lamps and "do not disturb" signs featuring unique fabrics.
VERA, the hotel's indoor/outdoor restaurant, will seat 40 guests and serve authentic Italian cuisine. Views of the hotel's four pools will be featured, not to mention a stunning vertical garden which will be home to more than 2,000 local plants. The on-property spa will be full-service and include a pool for water-based treatments.
Silvia says, "Fashion and hospitality are both businesses totally committed to the creation of new experiences and new sensations; trying to awaken the inner senses of each person, whether through a new style of clothes or a perfect stay in a beautiful environment. The process is almost identical. It is the search of a balance between form and function."
Opening rates start at $275 a night ... beginning now!
