The opening of Conrad Cartagena offers a new resort in the city famed for its pristine Portuguese architecture, with three pools, a golf course, seven dining outlets and fitness centre.
Its oceanfront siting means it is on the north side of the iconic Walled City giving guests access to the shores of the Caribbean Sea.
Tom Potter, senior vice president, operations, Latin America and the Caribbean, of brand owner Hilton, said: "With Cartagena being one of the most popular destinations in the country, we are proud to announce the opening of Conrad Cartagena as the newest addition to our luxury portfolio in the region.
"We recognise the significance of this city in Colombia and have placed a focus on the expansion of our portfolio throughout the country."
Conrad Cartagena opens with 109 unique guestrooms and suites, with neutral tones, contemporary wood furniture, marble décor, and artwork from Colombian artists, Pedro Ruiz and Kiko Kairuz.
Large windows and high ceilings provide natural light and views of the Caribbean Sea or the Jack Nicklaus golf course.
Rooms have spacious bathroom with separate tub and shower, two sinks and custom toiletries. In early 2018, the property will also unveil an additional 159 rooms.
