Casa San Agustín to open summer 2012

Boutique hotel Casa San Agustín is slated to be opened in Cartagena de Indias in summer 2012 after a complete renovation.

The hotel, which features 22 rooms and nine suites, preserves three Colonial buildings and an ancient aqueduct. Casa San Agustín sits within the walled city of Cartagena, a designated UNESCO World Heritage site.

Accommodations feature wooden beamed ceilings soaring up to 25 feet, arched windows that allow light to flood into the guest rooms and suites, balconies and flowered terraces mimicking authentic Colombian style. Four-poster beds furnish each room and suite, while a select number of rooms feature private plunge pools or Jacuzzis. All rooms feature modern technology.

Restaurant Alma will feature al fresco dining in the courtyard of Casa San Agustín. Other food and beverage venues include the bar and poolside lounge. The third floor terrace overlooks the rooftops of the city and will serve as a solarium for hotel guests during the day. During the evening, the terrace transforms into a "By Invitation Only" lounge.

Casa San Agustín is managed by Trust Hospitality as part of its collection of independently created boutique hotels.

Based in Hilton Head, South Carolina, K. S. McRorie Interior Design is responsible for the interiors of Casa San Agustín, under the helm of founder Kelley McRorie.
