The swanky Cabrera neighborhood is the setting for this sophisticated and design-forward boutique property. Interiors by designer Nini Andrade pleasantly contrast with the building’s modern concrete and glass facade. Decor emphasizes gold and emeralds, two minerals readily found in Colombia, along with a variety of eye-catching shapes and textures. The result is elegant and warm, particularly in the guest rooms, which combine bold accents like cowhide desk chairs with natural-wood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows, some with dreamy views over Bogotá. Bathrooms with three-headed massage showers up the luxury factor in guest rooms, while emerald-green mosaic tile walls do the same for the subterranean spa. A crowd of locals and hotel guests flocks to the bustling fine-dining restaurant, which serves seasonal Colombian fare. Two hotel bars, in the lobby and on the roof beside the pool, are available for guests who need a break after browsing the neighborhood’s numerous posh boutiques.
