Hotel Celebrates Vallenato Festival
Located in downtown Valledupar, near the “Parque de la Leyenda Vallenata”, Sonesta Hotel Valledupar opened its doors on July 2009. Valledupar is well known for being the cradle of Vallenato music, representative of the Colombian culture and result from the fusion of three different cultures. The “caja vallenata” (used by the African slaves and brought by the Europeans), the “guacharaca” (used by Indigenous people) and the accordion (originally from Europe) are Vallenato´s traditional instruments.
The city is also home to the annual Festival of the Vallenato Legend, one of the most important musical festivals in Colombia, celebrated in April. For five days, the city becomes an enormous party, full of parades, shows, contests, and good music.
The Sonesta Hotel Valledupar features 108 guest rooms with first class amenities, a full service business center, full-service restaurant, lobby bar, room service, 24-hour concierge service, WiFi throughout the hotel, a swimming pool and fitness center, meeting space for up to 300 guests, and an executive floor with breakfast daily. The hotel is adjacent to a new shopping mall and is the first full service hotel available in Valledupar.
