About Kohsamui Hotel de Mar, Cartagena

Eco-retreat with private beach access at Manzanillo del Mar

North of Cartagena

Offering private beach access, the tiny, elegant Kohsamui Hotel de Mar is a little piece of Thailand transported to the quiet Colombian coastline north of bustling Cartagena. The magnificent rampart walls and museums of historic Old Town are a 40-minute drive away.

Adventurous pursuits

In addition to salsa nights and capoeira classes, the hotel can organize kayaking, kitesurfing, and other activities. You'll be able to take a canoe tour of the Ciénaga de La Virgen mangrove swamps, a 30-minute drive away, or fish with the locals at Manzanillo del Mar.

Free full breakfast

Xi-Xi serves regional dishes by the beach, with an emphasis on seafood and tropical fruits, including a free full breakfast. Sunrise yoga will start your day off right, and you can enjoy a stress-relieving Shirodhara massage to complete the relaxation process.

Sea views and free WiFi

There are just 2 rooms and 2 suites, all decorated in gauzy fabrics and jewel-like colors, with notes of dark wood, thatch, and bamboo. You'll have conveniences like free WiFi and flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, and all rooms afford superb sea views.

Very Good 8.0 From 5 reviews

Kohsamui Hotel de Mar, Cartagena
Wonderful little hotel with very attentive staff. More or less a private beach during the week with very few people. This is a no-frills little town with limited food options in the evening, but the hotel will prepare lunch and dinner for you if you ask in advance. Very close to Cartagena, yet felt secluded and cheaper/quieter than Playa Blanca on the other side of town. Highly recommended, if you enjoy some quiet time away from it all, with good company, sun, sea and friendly staff.

Great relaxing get away
This is a great place if you really want to get away and relax. A basic four room palapa/bungalow right on the beach. Not luxe, but very comfortable and the staff super friendly. Annie is a great cook and they'll all take care of you. Beach is much quieter than ones closer the city.
