This smart boutique hotel is located approximately one hour 20 minutes from Santa Marta airport and 8 miles (20 minutes by car) from the Tayrona National Park. Thirteen simple yet elegantly designed cabins are dotted around the mature and attractive tropical gardens. Each cabin has a thatched roof, screened windows and adjoining wooden deck with chairs and hammocks where you can sit and watch the hummingbirds darting around. The bathrooms are outside but still private and connected to the room. There are also family rooms with a double and 2 twin beds.

This lodge has a strong eco-friendly policy which means there is no hot water in the bathrooms. A stay here is about disconnecting from the outside world - no television or wi-fi instead peace and serenity! The restaurant has a creative menu which is based on local ingredients serving excellent steak and fish dishes. They have delicious natural juices including carrot and ginger juice. They often light a fire on the beach in the evening so you can take your drinks and relax by it. There are also hammocks and sun loungers available on the beach (not safe to swim here). They also offer massage treatments. Sometimes the electricity can be switched off during the night.

This stylish property provides a convenient base from which to explore Tayrona National Park. It is located in a very remote location and there is nothing nearby.
