Colombia is the buzz word at the moment

Colombia is in vogue. Colombia is taking advantage of the fact that it is the protagonist of one of the series in vogue about the controversial Pablo Escobar to get rid of its bad reputation and promote itself as a destination of stunning landscapes, of a thousand-year culture, an intense gastronomy, idyllic nooks; of cities with history and colonial villages; of magic music, happiness and humble people. Colombia is much more than what we see on television, it is the alive and lush nature of its jungles, the vitality of its “cafetales” and its sugar cane fields, the craftwork made by the elders and by talented youngsters, the life in the streets, its museums, its theatres… Colombia is its past, tough and real, but it is also its welcoming present and its encouraging future.

4 or 5 years ago Colombia tried to break with its past: with the insecurity, with crime and violence. “Colombia, the risk is that you want to stay” was one of the most famous tourist promotion slogans. A courageous campaign that wanted to promote the idea that an unsafe country is a country that does not evolve. Thus, the campaign was accompanied by videos that showed all the virtues of Colombia that have traditionally been overlapped with other less attractive issues.

Adventure, huge beaches, good weather, heritage and culture, music, modernity, comfort… These are the values that were celebrated in the videos and that have also inspired the new promotion campaign, aimed at promoting the country as the cradle of magic realism, offering unique experiences in its incomparable landscapes. Thanks to both campaigns, tourism in Colombia has not stopped growing, and it has earned different awards for being the first international tourist destination chosen by travellers from all around the world.

Discovering the charm of the so-called Eje Cafetero, the beauty of the famous Garden City of Colombia (Fusagasugá), the eternal Cartagena, San Agustín, the Colombian Caribbean… The tourist attractions in the country are endless, like the hospitality of its people and the magic of its nature.

If you are thinking of visiting Colombia, do not hesitate: the country is in vogue and prices shoot ski-high. Make the most of the trip and accommodation discounts or plan your own getaway with enough time for enjoying the sales with the Early Booking of the hotels in Bogota. Medellin and the Colombian Caribbean. Some of the most luxurious hotels in Bogota, the historical hotels of Ibague and the large resorts of Bucaramanga or Popayán are a great opportunity for discovering this magic land, enjoying its charms with a privileged attention and with safety and guaranties.

The hotel trade in Colombia

The hotel industry in Colombia has made a huge leap forward in the last years. The number of hotels has significantly increased and their quality has improved in such a way that it is up to the same standard as the most thriving and visited countries in the world.

More buildings, more safety, more internal mobility, best air connections… It is a perfect environment to create a strong industry, and national and international hotel chains are abreast of this. Nevertheless, it seems that demand numbers are not so positive, especially in the regions situated far from the coast.

At least, that is what the Hotel and Tourism Association of Colombia, Cotelco, says. The average occupancy of hotels located in Santander, for example, does not exceed the 45-50%. A very limited number if we consider that it is an area that covers the famous Ruta del Sol and where there is a strong potential in the MICE and business meetings industry.

Although prices are lower than in 2012, around $132 per night, the main destinations keep their quietness: Barranquilla, Bucaramanga, Bogotá, Medellín, Manizales y Cali. In other cases, such as San Andrés island (an incredible paradise in the middle of the Colombian Caribbean), average prices per night are around $200, similar to the hotel rates in Cartagena.

Hotels in Bucaramanga, which are in the third place in price per night, were some of those that registered an important drop in the average price of the stay per night, with 129 dollars, 27% less than in the previous years. However, in this city we find some of the most exclusive and well-designed hotels in the country. A few 5-star hotels stand out, such as Dann Bucaramanga hotel, specialised in high level tourism and business trips.

 The same hotel chain has hotels in Bogotá with a similar, and even superior, level, such as the emblematic Casa Dann Carlton Bogotá, with spa and services for events in one of the best locations in Bogotá. Along with it, Dann Carlton Bogotá and Dann Norte make part of a range of accommodations in Bogotá, ideal for those in search of rest and service in a luxury space.

Cali, where we can find many rural and eco hotels, or Medellin, are some of the strongest destinations which show a good development in the hotel trade in Colombia.

Taste for classic details

Elegance, spacious rooms, classic design, personalised attention… The characteristics of luxury hotels in Colombia have some meeting points with Europe, but it is more traditional, more focused on the classic elegance with baroque details and court essence, in contrast to the fashion of the Nordic design which has pervaded the most modern hotels in the south and centre of Europe.

A good hotel in Colombia offers professional staff, spacious rooms with tailor-made services, (from the traditional bathrobes and slippers, to the breakfast in the room service, shoe cleaner and luxury welcome amenities), functional spaces such as the dressing room, hall, living rooms, meetings room…

Booking is very easy and most of the chains offer all types of facilities to those who live in the same city or those who come from the US or Europe. Taking advantage of early booking is a good option, although price differences are not as drastic as in the Mediterranean coast.

Family and business Estelar Hotels in Bogota

Bogota is the capital of the republic of Colombia and the financial and economic centre of the country. It is a district which promotes the creation of businesses and diverse financial activities. Besides, there is a lot of research activity in Colombia, both in universities and in specialized centres. All this has led Estelar hotel chain to bet for its three luxury hotels in Bogota especial for families and business trips.

Precisely close to the biggest business and exposition centre in Colombia, close to El Dorado airport, we find the Estelar de la Feria Bogota Hotel, a hotel with a wide range of services for families and all type of amenities that will guarantee the success of your business: parking, built-in security service in all the areas of the hotel, transfer service to the airport, room service… Besides, the Estelar de la Feria Bogota Hotel offers you an event manager staff  that will organize your business meetings or your personal events in one of the six multifunctional and totally equipped meeting rooms of the hotel. And in order for you to relax with your family or after a long work day, we invite you to visit the wellness areas of the hotel, a complete spa and a gym for you to keep fit also during holidays.

Also in the centre of Bogota we find the Estelar Windsor House Hotel, located in the T Zone of the city and close to 93 Park. Undoubtedly the hallmark of this hotel are the Estelar Bogota Windsor House rooms, with more than 50 square metres of space for your whole family and businesses. In these rooms you will enjoy a bathroom with shower and hydromassage, a dressing table, a dressing room, a living room with a sofa bed… And to complete your relax and comfort, what could be better than relaxing in the spa of the hotel and in the Bon Vivan restaurant, managed by some of the best chefs in Colombia and where you will be able to take pleasure in a cuisine which combines the best of the traditional and international cuisine.

A bet for wellness: Estelar Hotels with gym in Colombia.

Health and wellness have become two of the most important values for XXIst century society, both for youth and adults. There are so many ways of watching one’s health that there is no excuse to find an activity to keep fit, either outdoors or indoors. Those who love nature normally choose outdoor sports like footing, cycling, water sports, roller skating… However, due to daily stress or to the effort these sports require, today the gym is still the most common place to keep fit.

In Estelar Hotels they are conscious of it, and that is why many Estelar Hotels feature a fitness room specially designed for those travellers who do not want to give up wellness during their pleasure trips. But the gym is specially useful for business trips and long-term trips, as it allows travellers to get away from it all and recharge energies feeling like at home. 

 

In Colombia we find three Estelar Hotels which have access to the gym: The Estelar Calle 100 Hotel, the Estelar Suites Jones Hotel and the Estelar Blue Hotel. The three of them have totally equipped rooms with modern cardio-fitness and muscle-building machines, rest areas and TVs. Everything you need to keep fit during your business or pleasure holidays in Colombia. 

Furthermore, among the services of the Estelar Suites Jones Bogotá Hotel you will find a wide range of business services specially designed to guarantee the success of your businesses: left-luggage office, room service, laundry… And to complete a wide wellness and health offer we recommend you the gastronomic offer of the Estelar Blue Hotel, based on the balanced and healthy cuisine of the buffet restaurant in El Poblado, where you will be able to taste typical local dishes and international cuisine dishes.
