Penthouse in Medellin: AF Boutique Living
I knew that our penthouse in Medellin was going to be amazing the second that I set foot in the private elevator.
Let me give you a quick tour. Alejandro’s penthouse has two floors. The downstairs houses 4 of the 5 bedrooms (three of which have their own ensuite bathrooms btw), the kitchen, sitting room, and two balconies.
If this was the entire apartment, I’d give it a phenomenal review. However, the second that you step upstairs, you completely forget that the first level exists.
The entire second floor is a master suite fit for royalty. With a king size bed, a modern wrap around fireplace, and a shower with a panoramic view of the city, I had no idea where to relax first. Then, I saw the outdoor terrace. Alejandro has built a true paradise, high above the busy streets of Medellin.
The view extends through the entire valley, and I felt like a queen overlooking my kingdom (even if it was just for one night). The terrace also features a grill and bar, a huge seating area, and a private jacuzzi. Once I set foot on it, I knew that I would never want to leave to explore Medellin. Of course, Alejandro has the bar stocked with top shelf liquor and a chef on call so we never had to!
Now, if you know me, you know there are two things that I love: an amazing view and a private pool. A terrace with a panoramic view of the entire valley that I can enjoy from my own private pool? That changes the game. The best part about the pool isn’t that there are tons of comfy lounge chairs for tanning (though those were much appreciated).
It’s the temperature control! Leave the heat off all day and soak in the cool waters while sunning and snacking on the terrace. When the sun goes down, all that you have to do is grab some champagne and flip a switch to heat up the pool to turn it into a jacuzzi for a wild night 🙂
We all know, though, that true luxury is in the small touches, and the care that Alejandro has so clearly put into this penthouse in Medellin is what really brings it to the next level. The menus list not only take out, but also the best restaurants, bars, and clubs around, any phone number that you may need, and all the WiFi passwords and channels made getting settled in a breeze. Each bed also comes with it’s own robe, handy for when you’re hanging out in your swimsuit all day.
We stay in luxury homes and resorts to experience something we’d NEVER get at our own homes. At Alejandro’s, the master bedroom has gorgeous two story glass walls on three of the four sides, perfect for enjoying the view while I also enjoyed breakfast in bed.
The view at night is even more stunning, with all the lights alive and sparkling, but who wants to get up and close three walls worth of curtains when you’re ready for bed and don’t want to be woken by the sun? Not me. That’s why Alejandro revolutionized the game with remote controlled curtains. Enjoy the stunning vista until you’re ready to nod off, then just tap a button to close yourself in for a cozy night. Amazing.
To top it ALL off, Alejandro is the most vibrant, cheerful, and friendly person that you will ever meet! He responds to all communication quickly and with a smile. If you’re looking for a penthouse in Medellin, you must stay in the heart of it all, Poblado. And if you’re staying in Poblado, you absolutely cannot pass up Alejandro’s luxurious penthouse in Medellin. Check out the listing here and get planning!
All my love,
