With a design inspired by Colombia’s greatest natural treasures – gold and emeralds – the geometric B.O.G. Hotel, in the bustling north of Bogotá, is a decadent base from which to explore this burgeoning city. Tipped as an exciting destination bursting with creativity, clubs and great cuisine, B.O.G. Hotel itself is home to one of Colombia’s most respected chefs, Leonor Espinosa. In B.O.G.’s main restaurant, LA LEO, Espinosa aims to protect the gastronomic heritage of Colombia, using traditional ingredients to create fusion dishes that blend cross-cultural flavors with longstanding, local recipes. In the Lounge Bar, an expert barman mixes a similarly inventive range of cocktails.
The stark yet luxuriously textured interior of the hotel complements the building’s utilitarian exterior. All 55 rooms by award-winning designer Nini Andrade Silva focus on bronze, green, greys and beige combined with natural stone, bronze, mirrors, mosaics and tinted glass to create pared back and restful spaces. While the in-room décor is intentionally simple, every comfort is assured, including soundproofed windows, 500-thread linens and bathroom products and scents that have been exclusively designed for the hotel. After a day discovering the vibrant surroundings, the rooftop’s heated swimming pool offers a welcome respite, with views over the city.
