Located in the stunning, mountainous coffee region of Quindio, Hacienda Buenavista is a peaceful, adult’s only boutique hotel, set amid 100 acres of working farm and orange groves, producing avocado, passion fruit, plantains, and mandarins.
Ollie is here to help give you the inside track.
There are just five spacious suites at Hacienda Buenavista, each individually designed, and with a private terrace overlooking the tropical gardens, and surrounding mountains. All rooms feature air-conditioning, complimentary wi-fi, TV, and sumptuous beds.
Dining is all part of the experience at Hacienda Buenavista, with a daily changing menu of local specialities and international classics served al fresco, on the garden terrace. Fine wines, Dutch cheeses, and a homemade Sangria are the perfect accompaniments to dinner, or to be enjoyed in the bar, with spectacular views of the mountains and river La Vieja.
The infinity pool offers the most incredible valley views, and is heated by solar panels so it's always warm enough for a dip. For cooler evenings, retreat to the library, or the salon, with its big comfy sofas. Outdoorsy types will love exploring the gardens and working farm, full of Colombian fruits, and organic vegetables, or making a trip to the nearby waterfall for a dip and a picnic.
Why we love it
With just five guestrooms and a simply beautiful setting, this will be one of those hotels that you'll want to keep a secret - but also can't help shouting from the rooftops about!
