Might be biased because I got engaged here but my 2 night stay was absolutely perfect. My boyfriend and I were backpacking Colombia for a month and made a stop here to celebrate our 6 year anniversary. We treated ourselves to 2.5 hr couples massages, delicious cocktails, and the best ceviche ( karmairi ceviche) we've ever had! They even helped... More

This is where we spent our last 2 days in Cartagena and it was worth it! After 8 days of walking around sight seeing and traveling from city to city... this was a great way to end our trip and enjoy the colombian coast. Room was clean, bright and overall amazing.

Excellent small boutique hotel ! Much better than expected, The hotel is located around 30 minutes away from Cartagena center, so it is located in a very private beach and location. With only 14 rooms in a very natural atmosphere. The room smelled delicious (like a spa). Great music : chill out all the time. There is only 1 restaurant... More

I spent 2 days at Karmairi and my friend stayed on for another 2 days. It is 35 minutes from downtown Cartagena but they have a shuttle. After 2 days in the city, we had no need to take the shuttle.

I did not stay at the hotel (but would love to in the future) but I spent a lovely day there with a group of friends last week relaxing in the pool, deck, beach and got two of the spa services.

This hotel is away from everything and boasts at being a spa. My room was super tiny, had no window that I could open unless I wanted to end up without air conditioning. In fact the room was 26 degrees when I arrived and it was very hot outside. To make it worse the room had 4-5 air conditioner condensers... More

Top of the class service, extremely friendly staff and a very quiet and beautiful environment. The food is so good people travel all the way there to eat. Commuting to and from the town center is a bit expensive, but you probably won't want to leave the place. Only the water is overpriced
