Accor Group’s Sofitel Hotels & Resorts brand is set to open its third property in Colombia. The Sofitel Calablanca will open by 2021 in Barú, joining the Sofitel Bogotá Victoria Regia and Sofitel Legend Santa Clara.
Accor has began the construction of the property in alliance with Patrimonios Estrategias Inmobiliarias, Cementos Argos and Arquitectura y Concreto. The partners are in the process of registering for certification in sustainable construction under the LEED system to improve efficiency in terms of energy, construction processes and environmental-impact management. The architectural design is expected to “achieve a balance between the natural ecosystems and the exclusive surrounding community,” according to the company.
Sofitel Calablanca will have space for 400 guests on a campus of more than 19,750 square meters.
Expected to open in mid-2021, Sofitel Calablanca will consist of a main building (housing the lobby, restaurants, spa, fitness center and kids’ club) and a total of 187 rooms, including 23 suites,  distributed across 10 smaller buildings all with ocean views and balconies. Public spaces will include three restaurants, six bars, more than 1,000 square meters of meeting rooms and four swimming pools.
