After the excitement of this week’s victory, spare a thought for the bold Colombians and get yourself on a plane to discover this burgeoning incentive destination.
Make Bogota your first stop and check out the super sleek B.O.G. Hotel (right), the country’s first Design Hotel. All that glitters isn’t just gold in this property, with a sparkling interior based on Colombia’s natural treasures of both gold and emeralds.
The contemporary interiors of the 55 guest rooms all feature a working desk with the larger rooms also featuring business suites, sitting areas and private terraces in addition to the impressive city views.
Take a dip in the rooftop pool and then venture down to the Lounge Bar, a favoured haunt for both the local and international creative communities, and take your pick from a divine cocktail list.
Whether you are visiting the city for meeting or incentive, be sure not to miss the Zipaquira Salt Cathedral – a former mine turned shrine and one of the city’s most famous constructions. It can be hired for events and can hold up to 8,000 people. Take a cable car to the top of Cerro De Monserrate for spectacular views across the city or visit the historic town centre in the La Candelaria district, with buildings dating back to the 16th century.
From the chic to the colonial – venture down to historic Cartagena, taking in the cobbled streets, bougainvillea trails and colourful townhouses. Luxury options abound in this city, so spoil your delegates at the Bastion Luxury Hotel or opt for for a relaxing spa experience at the Sofitel Legend Santa Clara.
