We are always looking to partner with unique accommodations throughout the world and one of the biggest requests we have is for over-the-water bungalows … that aren’t 24-hours away from the United States by plane! While we wait for our Bahamas property to finish their renovations, we have a new property which is a bit further but not 24-hours away.
Panama Over-the-Water Bungalows
Enjoy one of its exclusive cabins where you will have access to crystal clear waters from your private terrace or you will be able to observe the impressive sunset interrupted only by playful dolphins.
Feel immerse by the sounds of nature while laying down on a colonial style bed at the second level master bedroom, or just relax with a hot water shower on your private bathroom after an exited tour of the area.
Learn how to coexist with the advance systems of renewable energy like the solar panels that provide electricity to the cabins or the bio-digestor that debugs sewage waters avoiding any type of pollution impact on the environment.
At night, the restaurant’s impressive palm leaf roof creates the perfect surrounding for a candlelight dinner that offers a variety of Caribbean and International dishes.
Over-the-Water Suites in Panama
There are five Suites consisting of two stories that together provide 50 m2 of interior surface and 25 m2in its terraces, in addition to a platform at the water’s surface with stairs to access the green, crystal clear waters surrounding it.
The king size bed is located in the upper room, from where you can enjoy an incredible view of the bay through an ingenious window through the palm roof, while your two individual beds are in the lower room, with a bathroom.
All the Punta Caracol suites are joined to the main dock by independent fingers, except for numbers 3 and 4, which share a finger, due to live corals that got in the way which we decided to protect (each anchoring post in Punta Caracol acqua-lodge was placed respecting the natural contour of the coral reefs around it, after a meticulous two-year environmental impact study).
All Suites have hot water, and 12-volt electric power supplied by the solar panels installed in its thatch roof.
In order to make your stay with more comfortable, all our Suites have complements offered to each guest upon his arrival at Punta Caracol acqua-lodge, such as mineral water bottles each night, raincoats, umbrellas, flashlights, snorkeling equipment, beach towels, reading lamps and a hygiene kit.
Over-the-Water Bungalow Rates
