A hidden gem off the beaten track. This hotel is everything you need if what you are looking for is rest and your energy boosted. We had a great time. Food is exquisite. Drinks are top (incredible gib&tonic and amazing Bloody Mary). The staff is way past anything I’ve seen in this kind of hotels in Colombia. Near the hotel are many routes for trekking and they offer horseback riding. Birdwatching is a must...

Hacienda Baza is a beautiful place with wooden beam ceilings, very comfy beds, a cozy fireplace, great food, great service. The forest trail is short but fun for the young ones, not challenging. There are mountain bikes for hire and horses. The bar is a great place to relax in the evening with a glass of whatever and a roaring fire. Bring insect repellant.

This Hacienda is out of this world beautiful with delicious food to match. We absolutely loved the Colonial room with fireplace. The staff was extremely efficient and polite. We lucked out and strolled into Tibana for the Thursday market, rode the Haciendas well groomed horses and took in a hot stone massage. This is the ultate in relaxation ... Just be warned that its actually not in the town listed on TripAdvisor, but still only 2 hours from Bogota and situated in the most amazing valley full of lushness. You will not be disappointed with this Hacienda paradise.

Awesome rooms with fireplaces which work and keep you cozy at night. The staff is super helpful and go the extra mile to make you feel at home. We went on a bike ride in the area--brought our own bikes--and had a great time. Only suggestion is to offer more options for vegetarians.

My husband, 1.5 year old daughter and I recently spent 2 nights at the Hacienda Baza and we highly, highly recommend it. The food is very good, the setting is spectacular and they have a lot of nice little touches to make the place great. We received snacks of peanuts and popcorn along with a welcome glass of wine our first night, and they were incredibly kind about letting us use the kitchen fridge to keep some extra food for our daughter. The hike behind the hacienda is gorgeous and we loved having a fire ready to be lit at the end of the day. The manager told me it's very hot there in December/January/February and that people use the pool, but it definitely wasn't warm enough for that on this trip! They had big umbrellas and walking sticks for us to borrow as well. There are two big common rooms where you can hang out and play games and have drinks and snacks, both with huge fireplaces. Our daughter loved chasing the dogs around and jumping in puddles and enjoying all her freedom! I can't possibly say enough good things about this charming, wonderful place.

It was our fourth stay in Baza after being absent for a couple of years (from Germany) but is has kept it's unique style you really need to look out for to find something so special like this place. This hotel is really unique. Founded in 1638 as a residence of Domenican monchs it has been converted into a very beautiful hotel where almost every detail is placed with harmony. Here you get to know what the sounds of silence means. Surrounded by extensive gardens it is the perfect place to find some rest and peaceful time and have conversations to interesting people who look for the same style of having some nice days without being disturbed by almost anything. Getting there in fact is a bit uncomfortable when leaving the road that connects Bogotá and Tunja but what you experience is really worth the journey. It took us 4 hours to get there by once you arrive you forget about the journey. Take extensive walks in the forests or climb a mountain nearby and get back to join a good meal. Or take a horse trip to the village and forget about hectic life, especially if you want to get rid of the heavy traffic in Bogotá. Especially on weekends meet interesting people and have conversations with other guests that do appreciate that style as well. The restaurant is good has a selection of wines. Enjoy reading or playing games in the bar or saloon. TV is only available in one salon but we haven't missed it at all. If you don't fear cold water, take a bath in the pool. Perfect site for relax. Medical massage is offered by pprofessionl living in Baza during several months of the year. All rooms are equipped with a chimney which during the night serves as heating for the room and gives it a very romantic touch. Enjoy this beautiful place!

Hacienda Baza is one of my favorite places to visit. It was an ideal couple's getaway before we were married it was an ideal couple's getaway. Now with children it's still a getaway for us and the kids can run around the rustic grounds, follow marked paths to lookouts and waterfalls, and explore the sprawling grounds without our supervision. Hacienda Baza is located in the timeless countryside where poncho clad peasants ride horses and work their picturesque fields There is no TV or touristy activities at Baza and only 11 rooms. These are all advantages to create the tranquil environment. Baza attracts a mix of interesting, well educated and traveled Colombian and foreign visitors. Great conversation! Need more info? The are fireplaces in every Spanish style room, friendly efficient service, and delicious meals served in the dining room by white gloved servers. By day, you can play croquet, lounge in hammocks, hike in nearby hills, walk to nearby Tibana, a 476 year old village as unchanged as the countryside. l could write lots more, but you get the picture. I cannot understand why anyone would want to bother with the hassle, hustle, and crowds of Cartagena or even nearby Villa de Leyva. This type of experience is priceless. For about $200 per night including all meals.

It is in fact very far from Villa de Leyva, I drove two hours through difficult roads for that mistake. However, the trip has the reward of finding a lovely place resembling the living conditions of rich people in the XVII Century. In this place you can walk through beautiful gardens and forest, rent a bike to go to the small village of Tibana (you need to be in good shape because the road is steep); ride a horse through the nearby farms (beautiful landscape) or simply stay in the Hacienda and relax (they offer good relaxing massages). Good job for the administrators and owners for maintaining the Hacienda in such a good condition, keeping the appearance as original as possible.

I have mixed feelings about this place. On the one hand, it is located on a spectacular property that includes a beautifully preserved 17th century hacienda and lovely gardens. Everything about this hotel makes you feel like you have been transported back a few centuries, from the adobe style house with high ceilings and wooden rafters, to the use of candles and lanterns to light the maze of passageways and rooms that comprise the hacienda and the lush vegetation, which grows mysteriously from the walls and extends to the adjoining courtyards. Perhaps it is because this place has so much potential that I was disappointed by the service. Upon arrival, there was only one person in charge of receiving guests, carrying their luggage, showing them their rooms, setting up the dining room and serving their meals. It is not surprising then that service was very slow and that our wine was only served once we had completed our meal. The food itself was mediocre. I also did not like being reminded at every turn that we would be charged separately for everything beyond the actual room-- breakfast was not included in the rate and additional fees are also charged for re-lighting the fireplace or eating food purchased in the dining room on the terrace of your own room. Finally, I agree with other guests who have noted that the guest rooms, in particular the bathrooms, are in need to renovation. With a little bit of effort, all of these inconveniences could be overcome and the hotel would be truly amazing.

First of all, Hacienda Baza is a good 2-3 hours from Villa de Leyva (the closest town, Tibana, is 4 km away). This 17th-century monastery (a retreat for Dominican friars) is located on a country road linking Tibana with the town of Turmaque (both traditional towns of the Boyaca region surrounding Bogota). In the mid-1800s, the church sold it to the great grandfather of Francisco Ordonez who converted it into a cattle ranch where vegetables and fruit were cultivated. In the 1960s, it fell into the hands of Francisco's great-granddaughter, Lucia, the current owner who also lives on the premises. Lucia lives on the property and is a gracious and elegant hostess, who speaks English fluently. Before converting the monastery into a hotel, she spent long years carefully restoring both the original buildings and replanting the (sizable) surrounding property with native Andean species. The fruits of her labors can be enjoyed by following one of several well-marked trails that lead over creeks and through lush woods draped with canopies of brilliant orange "Ojo de Poeta" (Poet's Eye) blossoms (aka black-eyed Susans), a landscape that is lyrical and otherworldly (happily there are benches on which to sit and fields in which to sprawl - with a book - or a picnic lunch). Other fruits (grown on the premises) - as well a wealth of delicious, nicely, priced local fare - can be savored in the dining room (formerly the chapel), where all three meals are served. Thankfully, the menu is extremely diverse (the produce all fresh and local and prepared on a wood-burning stove in the original kitchen) because it's not as if there are a slew of other eating options within close proximity. The kitchen is very amenable and willing to make soups or sandwiches for those who feel like eating a light meal in their room, while staring into a crackling fireplace (nights can get chilly in the Andes). I say "room" but lodgings are akin to private villas with soaring ceilings and rustic, yet tasteful and warm furnishings. Most have stone patios that gaze out onto beautifully landscaped gardens whose visual allure is complemented by the sound of fresh water gurgling in stone fountains and flowing through narrow canals. Additionally, there are various common rooms; a salon, a game's room, a library, a bar, all outfitted with fireplaces and regional antiques, all highly atmospheric and inviting. All this to say that Hacienda Baza is idyllic, bucolic, remote, and even somewhat dreamlike (providing it's not raining; avoid the heavy rain season!). Although many people come for a day or a weekend, it makes for a wonderful getaway for those in need of respite, tranquility, and peace of mind. My mother and I (we're a pair of very well-traveled Torontonians - in our 40s and 70s) were pretty much swept away by this place. We didn't have a car (which is useful for exploring surrounding towns and countryside - although Lucia can arrange guide trips and local transport) - but were perfectly content to wander off into the woods, read books in rocking chairs, play croquet against an Andean mountainscape, and just chill out in a rarefied setting that allows you to step out of the world for a while.
