• The Villa Estate at Isla Palenque

    Panama resort rooms from outside

    The Villa Estate at Isla Palenque is designed in the style of an expansive seaside villa with outdoor walkways in lieu of hallways. This highly-serviced estate sits above sandy Playa Primera, and includes an infinity pool and the private restaurant we call Edén. The rooms and suites are nestled between old-growth trees, blurring the line between their sophisticated interiors and the natural surroundings. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame stunning views of the jungle and wildlife. You can choose to close the living room off for air-conditioning, or let the walls slide away to embrace the song of the jungle and allow ocean breezes to flow through your spacious room.

    Warm hardwoods, bamboo floors and crisp white linens bring an effortless elegance to the interior, and cantilevered ceilings allow natural light, filtered by the forest canopy, to stream in. Furniture and artwork crafted by Panamanian artisans and from on-site woods bring local character to these stunning spaces. Outdoor showers and decks cloaked in privacy by forest trees perfect the immersed-in-nature experience you’ll enjoy while staying in any of these distinctive luxury eco-resort rooms.

    Our rooms (jungle room and ocean suite) were jaw dropping beautiful with keen detail spent on decor, amenities and personal touches. [ stayed March 2013 ] "
