MAGICAL ISLAND ESCAPES

ISLA TIERRA BOMBA - CARTAGENA - COLOMBIA

Blue Apple Beach B-Corp Sistema-B

SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES,
PERFECT FOR THE YOUNG AT HEART

Blue Apple Beach is a Mediterranean inspired beach club and boutique hotel located in the islands (Tierra Bomba to be exact), just 20 minutes from Cartagena, where like-minded locals and in-the-know visitors enjoy lazy days, music and great food in a laid-back-but-luxurious setting. We live for a good time. We love the finer things in life. We are a B-Corp, solar powered, zero waste and a living wage employer.

 

This is the certified, guilt free, good life.

Portia Hart Founder Blue Apple Beach

THE RIVIERA MEETS THE CARIBBEAN.

Blue Apple's founder, Portia Hart, spent nearly a decade working with yachts on the Côte d'Azur (and having lunch on the beach) before moving home to the Caribbean (her mother is from Trinidad & Tobago).

 

In Blue Apple, Portia gave Cartagena a beach club that blends top level comfort and personalised service with a laid-back, home-away-from home setting, that places community and staff on an equal footing with guests.

It's still luxury, it just feels better (for everyone).

EAT, DRINK, BE GOOD.

Cartagena's islands aren't famous for good food. But we are. And when we say 'good', that  applies to everything: 

Good flavours. Good for you. Good for the environment. Good for the community. Ethically sourced ingredients prepared and served by happy people. Picky eaters, vegetarians and vegans welcome. 

 

Check out our menus below.

EXECUTIVE CHEF
PEDRO MOSQUEDA

Chef trained at the Gato Dumas Institute in Bogota and then worked in leading Colombian kitchens run by Ivan Galofre, Harry Sasson and Nicolas De Zubiria, before moving to New York. There, he joined 3-star Michelin Chef Jean Georges’ team at The Mark Hotel and later James Beard winner Galen Zamara’s MAS Farmhouse. His final kitchen before making his way home, was April Bloomfield's Michelin-starred The Breslin. 

 

Here at Blue Apple, Pedro is committed to a farm-to-table ethos and sharing his international training and experience with young cooks from the islands of Cartagena, to create one of the most local and sustainable menus in the city..

Mission

TOURISM AS A FORCE FOR GOOD

People and planet. Profit with purpose. Triple bottom line. Regenerative tourism. Eco hotel. Sustainable travel. 

Whatever you call it, we believe very simply, that your enjoyment and our business success don't need to come at a cost to the environment or our neighbours on Tierra Bomba. We are committed to making sure our presence on this island - and yours - have a positive impact on its people and ecosystems.

OUR SISTER IN THE CITY

So many people asked us if we had a similar place in the Walled City, that eventually we made one. Townhouse Boutique Hotel & Rooftop has 11 rooms (just like us), a busy terrace bar with the best view in town, and its own tiny jazz club and live music bar, Members Only.

 

Located right in the middle of Cartagena Old Town and minutes from Getsemani, this is laid back luxury. You'll find all the same amenities as your room in Blue Apple Beach, the same approach to sustainability and a healthy dose of fun. 

Show your Blue Apple receipt or booking to get VIP treatment and a round on the house.
