This latest agreement furthers Hilton Worldwide’s commitment to growth throughout the country.
Located on one of the most sought after beach sites in Santa Marta, the beachfront Hilton Santa Marta will form part of the Irotama mixed-use complex in the Bello Horizonte tourist corridor. Just 15 minutes from the airport and 20 minutes from Santa Marta’s downtown and historic city, Hilton Santa Marta will offer guests a prime location on the Caribbean Sea to enjoy the area’s best beaches.
Ideal for both leisure and business travelers visiting Colombia’s oldest surviving city, the 17-story Hilton Santa Marta will offer 261 guest rooms, executive rooms and suites, all outfitted with the Hilton Serenity Collection of amenities. Clients staying in an executive room or suite will enjoy the added benefit of the hotel’s executive floor service and executive lounge, which will offer light snacks and beverages throughout the day.
Dining options will be plentiful with six restaurants and bars, featuring a signature restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner; an executive lunch restaurant; and four bars including a grill bar, pool bar, sky bar and refreshment bar. Guests of Hilton Santa Marta will also enjoy recreational amenities including outdoor swimming pool, fitness center and world-class spa.
A great base for events and business travelers, Hilton Santa Marta will provide more than 11,000 square feet of flexible meeting space including a nearly 4,500 square foot ballroom. A business center boasting cutting edge work spaces and seamlessly integrated technology will also be available for clients to work with efficiency and style.
Accessible via direct flights from Bogota and Medellin, Colombia, Santa Marta is the oldest surviving city in the country. Known as a sister city of Miami Beach, Florida, this city welcomes visitors with everything from beaches and mountain ranges to national forests and cultural heritage.
The hotel will participate in Hilton HHonors, the only guest rewards program that allows members to earn Points & Miles for the same stay and redeem points for free nights with No Blackout Dates at more than 4,200 hotels worldwide.
