Paying homage to the region’s Quimbaya civilization with its name, Sazagua Hotel Boutique is a charming boutique hotel in the heart of Colombia’s stunning coffee region. The hotel reflects the early coffee history through its colonial architecture by using wooden structures, wide corridors and vivid colors. With just 12 rooms and three villas, the hotel is still larger than life and is surrounded by beautiful gardens full of tropical flowers and unique birds and has a spa made from giant river rocks. Where else can you find that?
Whether you’re looking for city living or country life, Sazagua is the perfect spot. Just a short drive from Pereira, spend your days either relaxing by the pool and in the gardens or storeping and sightseeing in Pereira. The best part? It’s right in the beautiful coffee region, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so you can learn all of the best coffee preparation techniques and have a taste of the delicious local brew without having to travel far. You also have some pretty spectacular views over the lands used for coffee cultivation.
Sazagua’s rooms have something to suit everyone’s taste from hammocks to private plunge pools to private balconies. For those of you looking to live in the lap of luxury the Principal Suite is where you should head or for something cosier, a standard double is the perfect fit. Either way, you’re guaranteed some beautiful local artwork adorning the walls and bold colors all around.
why we like it
We love Sazagua for its gastronomic repertoire. It offers incredible international, as well as authentic Colombian, cuisine and the menu is always evolving so your options are truly endless. All you sun-lovers will no doubt find yourselves down by Sazagua’s wonderful pool on a hot afternoon, and curling up next to the fireplace with a glass of wine or a cup of Colombian coffee is a glorious way to end a day. Be sure to do some of Sazagua’s activities to really make the most of your time here. We especially love the exotic fruit tasting session, the cooking classes and the Colombian BBQ evenings where meat is cooked on a bonfire in the garden.
