On the 1st of December 2021, the highly anticipated Sofitel Barú Calablanca Beach Resort opened its doors to the public. This luxurious destination is a first-of-its-kind beach resort in Colombia. Here, guests can experience the essence of French heritage and DNA along with all that the Caribbean has to offer. With its warm white-sand beaches and an elegant atmosphere combined with world-class service, this luxury resort provides an unforgettable vacation experience for all its visitors.
Located just 25 minutes from the bustling city of Cartagena, the resort offers tourists a beautiful and modern vacation spot. Situated on the island of Barú, this luxurious resort features 187 rooms, including its presidential suite and 22 suites–all boasting balconies or terraces with views of the Caribbean Sea. With the picturesque sands of the Colombian coast, Sofitel Barú Calablanca Beach Resort is not only blessed with stunning views of nature’s landscape but there are also 60 species of coral and an on-site nursery dedicated to cultivating native plants and species. It takes pride in being a model for environmental sustainability, expertly balancing architectural design with nature.
The Sofitel Barú Calablanca Beach Resort is the perfect example of how resorts can operate in a sustainable and eco-friendly way. It’s the only resort in Colombia’s Caribbean region with LEED certification, which consistently meets the energy and water efficiency standards. The buildings use local materials to build their minimalist design, with many components being raw or recycled. Moreover, nearly all plants on its premises are endemic to the island, as well as cultivars from the area being fostered in its nursery. It’s exciting to see such measures taken to protect this beautiful environment. It is for these exact reasons that the professionals at Luxury Lifestyle Awards present the Sofitel Barú Calablanca Beach Resort with an International Sustainable Award in recognition of their commitment and drive towards delivering a more sustainable future.
The Sofitel Barú Calablanca Beach Resort is proud to offer visitors a sustainable, luxury experience in beautiful Barú. As General Manager David Mulin explains, “Barú has incredible biodiversity, stunning natural landscapes, and an exciting cultural identity – all of which makes it worth visiting! Our resort ensures that guests have the opportunity to respect and appreciate this wealth of attractions.”
