The Ananda is a beautiful hotel in the heart of Cartagena’s centro historico, close to the city walls. The name Ananda reflects the Sanskrit work meaning ‘state of bliss’ and this is certainly an extremely relaxing place to stay.

The main courtyard doubles as the restaurant patio and a large almond tree in the middle provides considerable shade whilst a second courtyard contains the main pool, which is surrounded by white stone walls on three sides. The two courtyards are connected by a small bar area. The rooftop patio has lots of day beds to relax on and the terrace comes with Jacuzzi.
