“Beautiful and Luxurious”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

What an amazing hotel. They have thought of everything from the spa shower to the eucalyptus steam room and the roman dip pool, with disco lights, waterfall and candlelight. Its a very romantic place. The rooms are gorgeous, we stayed in 2 different ones and they were both unique and gorgeous. The breakfast are great, very nice presentation, service and all made fresh to order with a menu. The service is amazing. Everyone is very thoughtful. The best hotel in our whole 3 weeks in Colombia. Also, very reasonabley priced for a 5 star. Love it.

Thanks for the kind words! We spent a ton of time and money planning all our properties. We appreciate guests taking notice and hope to build a loyal clientele! When you return always book direct for best rates and try to combine our hotels for better discounts Cartagena, Santa Marta and Tayrona.

Just came back from Santa Marta/ Parque Tayrona. Spent a night at Leda and then in Villa Maria. Would recommend it! I was with my little one who just loved it and enjoy the bio food at the restaurant.

Thanks for the great review. We just love it when we have guests combine our properties. We just organized today a trip from our Cartagena location to casa de leda and ultimately 3 additional nights at Villa Maria. The guest booked direct and got 5% package discount and airport pickup free in Cartagena. Next time you return we hope we can help you organize a customized trip with the best rates and services directly!

I stayed here for three nights and had an absolutely wonderful time. The hotel is gorgeous, a real sense of luxury. Everything is immaculate and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. There is a good selection of food for breakfast, all of which was delicious - though nothing beats Giovanni's special house cocktail. Just what you need on a sultry Santa Marta evening! We managed to visit the company's other hotel, Villa Maria, on the fourth night. Again everything is finished to a high standard, but I secretly missed the luxury and friendliness of Casa de Leda.
Finally, my boyfriend and I found the location to be ideal. We were nice and close to the shops, a stones throw away from some great bars, though there was no noise in the hotel from them, and we had a great view of the Cathedral from our room. We hope to return VERY soon.

Room Tip: Choose the suite....it's beautiful!

This amazing boutique hotel, in the middle of downtown Santa Marta, is exactly what I needed for my long 11 day stay. It's apparent that the owners did not cut any corner in the design, construction, decor, or furnishing. Everything was tactfully well put together. Even the staff members were carefully hand selected. They are friendly and helpful. The 3 front desk professional young men all speak English, which was a major criteria for me.
Each room has it's own decor. Clean and spacious room. The shower is an experience in itself with 4 different shower jets, and strong water pressure too. The included morning breakfast was consistently delicious.
Free fast Internet connection included. Signal was weak inside the rooms at times, but owners assured me that this will be taken care of real soon.
The location is strategic. A couple of minute walk to everything, including the new luxury marina, where I went to catch my scuba diving boat, Quimera Divers!
I highly recommend this beautiful luxurious hotel.

Just spent one night here during my trip to Colombia. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Staff at front desk spoke english. Everybody was friend and courteous. Breakfast was good but nothing special. Room was very nice, super clean, seem like it all was brand new, and the entire place had a modern but fitting look. AC worked great. I'd stay there again for sure if looking for a room at this price in Santa Marta. Right in the best part of town, very close to the plaza with good restaurants and to the best bars.

We would definitely endorse this boutique hotel to anyone hoping to experience all that Casa de Leda has to offer, especially great location, fantastic staff, and outstanding service! The rooms are well designed state of the art comfort and very comfortable bed. Modern decor and very relaxing environment .
Free delightful breakfast on a second floor balcony. Last but not least, the staff here makes the establishment the warmest and most accommodating hotel; they listen and help to the best of their abilities, emphasizing the all-important factor of the human touch. Kudos to the team
Best reason to stay is the convenient location and luxury at a reasonable price. We happened to meet one of the owners and found that he and his team are very forward thinkers and customer service oriented. Always a good thing.

Thanks for the great review and you mentioed something that many do not mention. We have a projection system in the spa which we run during the evenings with a show of photos. It really is great to sit there and relax with a drink and just relax.

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
