Daniel and I had the pleasure of spending a relaxing night in the Torre Rossini penthouse in Poblado, and the experience was unforgettable.
Poblado is my favorite neighborhood in Medellin, so when I saw this stunning penthouse on Airbnb I knew I had to check it out for a night.
Are you ready?
Picture this: you enter into a two-story sitting room, all white, with floor to ceiling windows.
The first floor also has a terrace, living and kitchen areas, and four bedrooms.
Turn up a stone staircase to explore further, and you won’t be disappointed. The top floor has an incredibly unique layout and boasts a terrace with panoramic views of the city, a chill lounge area, a bar, heated pool, jacuzzi, AND sauna and steam rooms.
The best part of the top floor, though, has to be the master suite.
It’s excluded from the rest of the house for the ultimate private recharge zone, and it has glass windows on three of the four sides. I have to admit, I spent most of my time in the jacuzzi built into the floor – perfect for a hot bubble bath and a glass (or three) of champagne.
Want to relax even more while you enjoy the view?
Try out the brand new massage table!
During our stay, Daniel, the bilingual manager, sent over an amazing masseuse.
It was my first ever massage (besides a weird experience in Thailand… but that’s a story for another time), and I think I’m probably ruined forever. How will I ever top a private massage in my own master suite with a view of Medellin?
Once I reached ultimate chill levels, I washed off in the bathroom that was actually bigger than apartments I’ve lived in before (not a joke, unfortunately), and took a dip in the rooftop pool. To say the day was perfect would definitely be an understatement.
After getting our fill of the pool, we threw together a quick cheese and meat platter, lit up a shisha, and cracked a bottle of wine to finish the night on the cozy lit up terraces.
With a full stomach and a hazy head, we cuddled up in the king size bed watching the city lights come on.
The entire city stretched out before me and I felt like the queen of Medellin, nodding off while overlooking the vast reaches of my kingdom.
The next morning, relaxed and refreshed, Daniel and I set an alarm to enjoy the sunrise.
I’m definitely not a morning person, so this penthouse in Poblado was perfect for someone as lazy as me. All we had to do was open our eyes and watch the colorful show from bed!
The pinks and purples washing over the city and mountains set the tone for a perfect sunny day to follow, laying out on the pool deck and letting time pass without a care in the world.
Breakfast prep and maid service is included in the stay, so we didn’t have to lift a finger the entire time. Can I please go back now??
Have you ever been to a penthouse with a full spa, or seen a view as amazing as this one?
If not, you need to check out the Torre Rossini penthouse in Poblado! I promise, it’ll be a night of luxury you’ll never forget.
