Cartagena de Indias (Colombia) is consolidating as a must-visit destination in the Caribbean and hotel chains have noticed. Holiday Inn, Intercontinental, Radisson and Double Tree opened new properties in the past two years. Sheraton is also developing a new hotel (but it’s taking them forever to finish it, as the opening date was pushed back -again- recently), and there’s been chatter of a JW Marriot in planning.
Hyatt Regency is the newest addition to Cartagena’s five star hotel portfolio. This hotel, which opened last December, is the first property of three that Hyatt plans to operate in Colombia. The other properties under development will be located in Bogotá and Cali, with expected opening dates during 2018.
