Buenaventura Golf and Beach Resort

Refined elegance and impeccable service combined with stretch of clean beach and lush green vegetation, the Buenaventura Golf and Beach Resort is a luxurious paradise. Located on the marbleized beaches of Rio Hato, right on the Pacific Ocean and an easy 80 minutes from Panama City.

This is an excellent choice for any type of traveler seeking luxury and relaxation: not only a couple’s or family retreat, it’s also a popular place for destination weddings, company-building workshops and even to bring along Fido (read pet friendly).

This extensive resort has 114 lavish guest rooms and 4 spacious villas with lagoon or ocean views off wrought iron balconies in an exclusive resort community. Feel pampered with Egyptian cotton bedding and even over-sized bathtubs in select room options. Additional amenities include a nightly turndown and 24-hour room service.


Royal Decameron Beach Resort and Villas

Located in one of the most famous and most visited beaches in Central America,  Farallon, Royal Decameron Panama in Rio Hato, is a resort hotel that is surrounded by picturesque white sand beaches that are highlighted by emerald tropical gardens and mystified by the astonishing blues of the Pacific coast.

The mile-long (2km) sands are invitingly pale, the ocean is textbook blue – and this beach resort in Panama is a luxury leviathan, totaling more than 850 balconied rooms in low-rise buildings and various villas. As a glance at the amenities reveals, this is drama-rama for kids, home to a string of swimming pools with winding water slides and toddlers’ paddling areas. Adults can play, too, on tennis courts and the golf course. Small wonder why so many guests, once bused in from the airport, don’t leave for the duration of their stay.

Sansara Surf and Yoga Resort

Sansara is in the business of recuperation for body and soul – which means a stack of (in)activities: learning to surf off endless empty grey-sand beaches backed by forest-covered slopes; waking to idle over organic breakfasts; deep-breathing with morning meditation and yoga; and sipping margaritas under the stars in the shoreside Buddha Bar. In chic-shack rooms of palm-thatch or terracotta tile, decorated in ocean-worn raw woods and calming whites, you’ll sleep soundly to the symphony of singing cicadas and crashing waves.
