This is one of three new boutique hotels in the area, two in Santa Marta, one in the nearby National Park. The personnel are beyond "simpatico" and the service is wonderful. Jacob, the owner, and his assistants are true hosts. Everything is new, unusually designed with exquisite, modern tastefulness, and, of course, clean. Breakfast is excellent and served either in the room or on the terrace. They do not serve other meals but there are good restaurants in Santa Marta (the best is "Rocoto Restaurante Peruano" 19-15 Carrera 2); secured parking is three blocks away. We had a suite and it is well worth the price; It has a great bathroom, very fancy modern shower, small Jacuzzi near the private terrace, wonderful king size bed ... you won't touch it for twice the price elsewhere (except their other hotel!). We have stayed at Al Husn in Muscat and Aditya in Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka and would put our suite nearly on par with our rooms there, which are three and four times the price. Remember though, this is a small charming boutique and not a full entertainment center; the swimming pool in the atrium is for lounging, there is s steam room and masseuse,and if you want beach, go to Rodedero, a very short drive away, for an afternoon. We will certainly return and add on a stay at the sister hotel in Tyrona Park. The management photos are accurate so I am offering only one of my own, of the jacuzzi and terrace! EL.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa de Leda is the newest addition to Kali Hotels. Its luxurious and relaxing spa complements each room's unique and grand style. First owned by a wealthy family of Santa Marta's golden age, the original house where Casa de Leda sits dates back to the late 19th century. While most of that house no longer stands, we salvaged its original fluted columns, facade, and floor tiling. In this remodeling, as with Casa de Isabella, we consistently chose classical style, maintaining the building's original integrity whenever possible. With Casa de Leda, we proudly present a full service boutique hotel and spa. Spacious rooms under vaulted ceilings give way to open bathrooms with plenty of natural light. The open terrace, flanked by cascades of green vines and equipped with a cooling mist system, overlooks the Santa Marta Cathedral. Each room includes an aromatherapy kit, and some have in-room hot tubs. Flat screen TVs in every room have media players with music stations and video libraries. We also provide free WiFi, international calling, and breakfast cooked-to-order. ... more less
