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.
Dating back to the early sixteenth century, the hotel is newly renovated and the former colonial house and is surrounded by fashionable boutiques, art galleries and gourmet restaurants. The Hotel Anandá has 23 suites in three different categories – luxury, deluxe and superior junior suite. All the 23 rooms feature wood beamed ceilings, dark brown wood, white cotton, red weavings, marble floors, Egyptian cotton sheets, LCD TVs, a minibar and the property has Wi-Fi throughout.
The rooms all feature air-conditioning and ceiling fans in both the room and bathroom plus a collection of exclusive Flor de Agua toiletries made from natural organic ingredients. The four deluxe suites include a living room with higher ceilings, while the four luxury suites all vary in size and shape with some having whirlpools and others with private terraces. 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. The Hotel Anandá provides a perfect blend of luxury and historic charm, ideal for your stay on holiday in Cartagena.
