Gran Azul Eco Resort offers wonderful accomodation located in the Colombian Andes at 2000 meters altitude, within a beautiful rural location. You will find us only 10 minutes walk from the colourful and traditional village of Salento, one of the most welcoming villages in Colombia, in the coffee cultural landscape of this patrimonial municipality.
This project is born out of a dream: after spending the past three years sailing with their 4-year-old daughter in the Atlantic Ocean (www.granazul.org), Cristina and Jordi – of European origin – decided to settle down in Colombia and to travel through the Eje Cafetero looking for a plot of land to give shape to their project. They fell in love at first sight with a site surrounded by a fascinating landscape full of fauna and flora, and they started building the future Gran Azul Eco Resort.
Gran Azul Eco Resort has been built throughout 2016. In it Jordi and Cristina decide to reflect all of their illusions, their positivity and their creativity, but above all their passion for small details and things made with love. This is a hotel with a familiar, close and very magical atmosphere. The building process ends with the formal opening in September 2016. A dream come true.
The Eco Resort is located on one hectare of land with excellent views, 40 minutes away by car from the airports of Pereira and Armenia, two major cities, which receive daily international flights.
It is an ideal hotel for couples to enjoy the peace and quiet of nature, for travellers who love bird-watching, mountain-bike excursions, nature walks and hiking in the Andes.
But we also welcome families with children seeking a different experience surrounded by this breathtaking environment.
We have special facilities and areas where the kids can play undisturbed, while the adults enjoy the green areas, a pleasant conversation around our living room fireplace, a full and rich breakfast or a delicious supper in our spacious and comfortable dining area, a visit to our organic garden, or a walk along our Eco-Trail which runs throughout the property.
