Mustique, a renowned luxury hospitality operator, has etched a trajectory of success and unwavering dedication to exceptional service, evident in its exclusive properties nestled in the historic heart of Cartagena de Indias and the Barú Peninsula. Over the past decade, Mustique’s foray into Colombian hospitality began with the establishment of Hotel Casa Don Sancho, followed by Hotel Casa de la Renta and the revitalization of Hotel Casa de la Merced. Now, with the recent addition of the impressive Hotel Agua Barú to its portfolio, Mustique aims for accelerated expansion, solidifying its presence not only in the historic center of Cartagena but also in other iconic and strategic locations nationwide.

Mustique crafts experiences that engage all the senses, meticulously curating every aspect to ensure an unparalleled stay. The harmonious, dynamic, and luminous spaces of each property create moments designed and personalized for each visitor.

The standards of quality and bespoke experiences commence with the choice of one of Mustique’s exclusive properties as a destination. The team’s dedication is evident from the booking inquiry to the culmination of the journey. The services extend beyond accommodation; aligning with the local tourism scene, offerings complement stays with cultural tours, gastronomic delights, visits to local designers’ studios and artisans, and immersive experiences in the idyllic Caribbean Sea.

Highlighting Colombia’s rich history, each Mustique property mirrors the destination’s value in its architectural design and unique personality.

Hotel Casa Don Sancho pays homage to Sancho Jimeno de Orozco, a former ruler of Cartagena de Indias. This residence provides an authentic and welcoming stay, where flowers, sea views, and natural light adorn every space. Its colonial architectural design evokes a classic and timeless essence.

Hotel Casa de la Merced, located near Plaza de la Merced, a site of historical significance for being where several independence heroes of Cartagena were executed, has been meticulously restored. The experience is warm and elegant, with views of the sea and Cartagena’s walls creating an immersive environment steeped in the city’s history.

Hotel Casa de la Renta, situated on Estanco del Tabaco Street, with its eclectic style and colonial architecture, presents a captivating mosaic of trends, designs, materials, colors, and textures. The diversity of elements makes Casa de la Renta a visually stimulating and uniquely charming space.

Just 50 minutes from Cartagena, Hotel Agua Barú can be accessed through coastal routes or maritime connections. Offering breathtaking panoramic views of the Cholón marsh from each of its masonry-built cottages, Agua Barú stands out for its contemporary architecture. At the water’s edge lies the Club House, providing direct access to the sea from its dock. Designed by Colombian architect Simón Vélez, the roof of this space showcases his mastery of guadua, a type of bamboo abundant in the Andes.

Perched atop the hill among Agua Barú’s cottages is the restaurant Origen, offering a culinary journey of contemporary dishes crafted by the chef.

Mustique provides the option to book each property in its entirety, offering the exclusivity of the entire house or individual rooms. In the case of reserving the entire house for events, Mustique reserves the right to provide food and beverage services.

In line with its social and environmental commitment, Mustique conducts internal campaigns to raise awareness about resource conservation and recycling. The brand also engages in community projects to promote the local economy, supporting the Somos Barú Association to strengthen education, preserve artisanal legacies, promote cultural activities, and conserve the beauty of Barú Island.

Mustique encapsulates the historical essence of Colombia, with its properties nestled between the historic center of Cartagena de Indias, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984 for its architectural and cultural richness, and the enchanting island of Barú, renowned for its turquoise waters, diverse birdlife, and the joyful spirit of its people.
