one of the most unique properties on Colombia's Caribbean coast
(PRWEB) July 16, 2012
“The remodelation took 3 times as long as expected but a few days ago we finally opened the hotel,” says Christopher Hardyment, the company’s British co-director. “The results are spectacular. We feel that we have one of the most unique properties on Colombia’s Caribbean coast.”
Deep Blue is a 12 bedroom luxury boutique hotel found on the border on the McBean Lagoon National Park, on the idyllic Caribbean Island of Providencia in the department of San Andres. The showpiece of the hotel is the stunning setting overlooking the marine National Park. The rooftop infinity edged whirlpool has sea views to die for, and the Luxury Suites have private infinity edged whirlpools or Jacuzzis on their balconies.
The hotel is keen to play up its eco-credentials and tries to bring positive benefits to its local environment through ecotourism. “We have done our best to remodel the hotel in an environmentally friendly manner, and are taking various measures to manage the hotel in an equally sustainable fashion. Our aim is for each visiting guest to leave behind a positive impact upon both the local environment and local culture,” explains Christopher. “We have started charging our guests a daily small ‘conservation fee’ that we will distribute annually to local environmental conservation projects and cultural preservation initiatives. We hope to demonstrate how environmentally and socially responsible ecotourism can go hand in hand with a luxury hotel.”
Per night prices for a double room range from 460,000 to 820,000 Colombian pesos (USD $265- USD $470), including breakfast. Local activities include relaxing on beaches, scuba diving, snorkelling, kayaking, fishing, sailing and hiking. Flights to the island are from neighbouring San Andres Island, which is itself connected to major cities such as Bogota, Medellin, Cali, Cartagena, Santa Marta and Panama City. The hotel is currently offering discounted room rates for stays during July and August. See http://www.hoteldeepblue.com for more details.
