Situated among the 19th Century colonial houses of Santa Marta’s old town, Casa del Farol is a small boutique hotel in the centre of one of the oldest cities in the Americas.

The six rooms, including three suites, at this luxury boutique hotel in central Santa Marta all pay homage to a different city, transporting guests to an eclectic world where the dolce vita of Rome, the New York avant-garde, the romanticism of Paris and the lives of the modernists of Barcelona all come to life under one roof. Rooms are spacious and the furniture in each room is from the city it represents. The owner is also a photographer, so stunning black and white photographs hang on the walls.

Slap bang in the centre of Santa Marta, La Casa del Farol is ideally located for exploring the city. The city is bursting with character and local flavour and minimal tourists, and the colonial buildings and pretty buildings make it the perfect strolling city. Santa Marta is also close to the Caribbean coast and numerable excursions can be made from the hotel.

There is a freshwater swimming pool on the roof, with fantastic views of the cathedral, and the hotel can arrange for a whole range of treatments including massages and manicures in guests rooms.

Why We Love It
