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 laid-back beach club and boutique hotel located just 20 minutes from Cartagena, where like-minded locals and in-the-know visitors enjoy lazy days, music and great food in a tropical island setting. We live for a good time, and we are also a B-Corp, solar powered, zero waste and a living wage employer. This is certified guilt free fun.

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 before moving home to the Caribbean (her mother is from Trinidad & Tobago).

 

In Blue Apple, Portia has blended 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.

When we talk about good food & drinks, 'good' 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.

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 who otherwise would not have the opportunities he has enjoyed.

"I came to Blue Apple to rest, to recover.
It was so much more than that.
It saved me, it changed my life"

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. 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

TH Front Outside Building.jpg

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

 

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.
