Owned by Natturale Hotel SAS and scheduled to open in early 2019, the distinctive Atolón Hotel Cartagena Tierra Bomba, Curio Collection by Hilton, will mark the brand’s debut in Colombia. Currently under construction, the 66-room hotel will offer guests an authentically local experience on Tierra Bomba Island, located approximately 15 minutes by boat from Cartagena and its magical walled city. The hotel will feature a rooftop bar and restaurant, swimming pools, spa and private beaches of the Caribbean Sea.

Hilton Garden Inn Pereira, owned by GR Hoteles SAS, will be the company’s first hotel in Pereria, which forms part of Colombia’s coffee axis – “el eje cafetero” and the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Coffee Cultural Landscape of Colombia. Set to begin construction this month, the 164-room property will be part of a mixed-use development including retail, offices and a private clinic. Already under construction, a 69-room Hilton Garden Inn owned by Futuristico Group SAS will also be opening in Cartagena’s high-end neighbourhood of Bocagrande, representing Hilton’s fourth hotel in the city.

Hilton currently has a portfolio of nearly 140 hotels and resorts open and welcoming travellers in the Caribbean and Latin America, including 18 properties in Colombia. The company is actively pursuing additional growth opportunities and currently has a robust development pipeline of nearly 90 hotels throughout the region, including nine hotels under design or construction in Colombia in Bogota, Cartagena, Medellin, Pereira and Santa Marta.
