‘Holistic approach to sustainability’ at upcoming Colombian retreat
POSTED 21 Dec 2018 . BY Jane Kitchen
We want to show the world's travellers that there's more to Colombia than its cities – and that it's possible to develop a hotel in a way that is both environmentally and socially sustainable
– Nathan Rodgers, CEO and co-founder of Cannúa
A new 27-acre sustainable hotel in Antioquia, Colombia, is set to open in April 2019 in a protected forest about 90 minutes from the city of Medellin.

Owned by Caimo Collections SAS, Cannúa is an 18-bedroom boutique hotel created with permaculture design principles and a holistic approach to sustainability. The property aims to “forge a new era of experiential travel within the region,” with guests exploring the biologically diverse environment through natural encounters and excursions designed to build a sense of community.

An on-site organic spa will be set in the forest and offer a selection of massages and facials, as well as yoga classes. Guests will also be able to hike the surrounding pre-Hispanic heritage hiking trails or embark on exotic bird-watching expeditions.

"As Colombia continues to evolve as a destination of natural and cultural wonders, we're proud to be bringing a truly exceptional and transformative travel experience to Antioquia's countryside," said Nathan Rodgers, CEO and co-founder of Cannúa.

"We want to show the world's travellers that there's more to Colombia than its cities – and that it's possible to develop a hotel in a way that is both environmentally and socially sustainable."

Constructed using sustainably sourced bamboo and compressed-earth blocks produced on-site from the property's own soil, Cannúa will utilise rainwater through its own on-site water treatment system, and will implement a waste management system, with the ultimate goal of being a zero waste property.

The retreat will also plant two acres of organic gardens and food forests to supply its own restaurant, and work with local organic farmers for ingredients that can't otherwise be produced on-site.

Cannúa's eight private cabañas and 10 rooms will feature views of the Valle de San Nicolas, and blend locally influenced aesthetics with modern amenities.
