What is it? Set in the heart of charm­ing Carta­gena, this pe­riod ho­tel with lash­ings of mod cons was cre­ated by Colom­bian-born fash­ion de­signer Sil­via Tcherassi. What’s so fab? Although the colo­nial-style at­mos­phere of this man­sion has been con­served, lux­u­ri­ous touches, in­clud­ing a rooftop pool framed by a gi­ant wall of plants and a full-ser­vice spa, bring it bang up to date. What about rooms? The ho­tel’s seven spa­cious gue­strooms have el­e­gant fab­rics, pri­vate bal­conies and vast, open-air bath­rooms. What else should I know? The Tcherassi has its own bite-sized res­tau­rant serv­ing rus­tic Ital­ian food, and a small spa of­fer­ing a full range of pam­per­ing treat­ments. How much? Deluxe rooms from Dh1,014 a night, www.tcheras­si­ho­
