About

Value
Certificate of Excellence
Privacy is found as the ocean breaks on the beach and you are the only one to witness its fall. Playa Koralia gives you that experience and more, one hour away from Santa Marta (Colombia) and 10 minutes from the Tayrona park. Time stops as nature defines each space; sand, paradise, sea, fresh water, palms, light & shade. The elements come together where the rivers flowing from the snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada flow into the blue Caribbean. Come enjoy the empty beaches, spa treatments, local excursions, tayrona park, the beach side bar, hammocks and time to yourself. Weather you are after adventure, pampering, sun or solitude - we are there for you (or to leave you alone!) Airport Transportation can be arranged at a surcharge.

This is a very special place, the gardens are lushious and well taken care of, the cabins are beautifully designed-I hear each is unique- the bathrooms are roofless and yet quite private, the food is excellent! Magical!!

Wild colours and passionate seas all mixed with coconut laiden natural living spaces. Healthy hearty tasty beautifully prepared food. Sounds of the jungle taking me deep into a trance of exotic rapture. Unspoilt tropical beauty.
