Alyzia Restaurant at Movich Cartagena Hotel

A delightful blend of colonial architecture and contemporary style set in the most exclusive area of the beautiful walled city of Cartagena, on Colombia’s Caribbean coast. Movich Hotel Cartagena effortlessly combines comfort and sophistication, but a stones throw from the city’s lively Plaza de Bolivar.

The pretty property is a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World which represents over 520 small independent hotels from Singapore to San Francisco. SLH carefully selects each hotel in its portfolio to celebrate its individual quirks and characters. The brand receives over 1,000 hotel applications each year, but accepts just 5%. Perfect proof that Small Luxury Hotels of the World tracks down hidden treasures and seeks to only mix and mingle with the creme de la creme.

Movich Hotel Cartagena is a boutique lovers dream featuring 32 well appointed suites that are spread across five floors. The hotel’s most iconic space is its rooftop. It is here you should start your magical evening. Enjoy a few lingering moments before sunset while sipping a freshly muddled cocktail, lounging across plush pillows on the terrace as the sun splashes across the horizon. A petite pool shimmers below as day becomes dusk and the city’s wonderful mix of colonial architecture and modern skyscrapers blow a kiss to the man on the moon.

Once you’re feeling peckish head down to the lobby and whisk your way into Alyzia’s elegant dining room. The hotel’s restaurant is flanked by vintage lanterns and draped in fish nets. Guests are greeted by an antique wooden boat filled with aromatic white flower pots which appear to be sailing in the direction of the dining room’s petite bar.

Plop yourself here and watch as the bartender shakes up Alyzia’s self titled signature cocktail, a refreshing tipple featuring vodka, lemon and indigenous corozo juice. Finger your way through the menu and you’ll find a parade of dishes inspired by the sun-kissed Mediterranean. Feast on plump burrata married to black truffle pesto, beef carpaccio topped with crispy fried capers and an unforgettable risotto featuring bitter parsley infused rice topped with the freshest shrimp ceviche kissed by sweet lemon.
