The essence of the Caribbean pervades La Casa del Agua; from the warm welcome to the sensation that you’re staying in a fine residence rather than a hotel.

Set in an original Samarian house, surrounded by the old colonial buildings of Santa Marta, La Casa del Agua retains much of the flavor and relaxed luxury of the old Caribbean way of life. It’s the sort of place that encourages you to feel at home as an honored guest or friend of the family, rather than a visitor to a hotel. The dining room, for example, has an open kitchen that invites you to meet the chefs, talk to them about your favorite dishes and even steal some of their ideas! Similarly, if you make La Casa part of your luxury, tailor-made vacation to Colombia, you’ll find the upper terrace is a great place to socialise with new-found friends over cocktails, whilst admiring the view.
