Viceroy Hotel Group (VHG) has announced plans for Viceroy Bocas del Toro Panama, a resort and residences set to open in 2019. The destination will feature 186 modern guest rooms, including 42 overwater villas along 457 acres of coastline -with three miles of private white sand beaches, plus sailing, surfing and hiking adventures just beyond the door.
The 42 overwater villas will offer breathtaking vistas of the Caribbean coast and ocean, each with its own private plunge pool and direct access to the ocean by deck. Exclusivity is all part of the experience — the destination, while a quick trip from Panama City, is accessible only by boat, seaplane or helicopter.
Among the countless options for adventure are rainforest zip-lining, snorkeling, sailing, paddle boarding and deep sea fishing. The archipelago is also home to the San San Pond Sak wetlands, the most biologically diverse tropical coral reef in the region and the ultimate place for bird watching, bicycling and guided eco-hikes.
The eco-friendly destination of Viceroy Bocas del Toro Panama allows only electrical cars and sustainable technologies. Its outdoor design has been meticulously planned with indigenous plants and tropical specialties that will be used in the preparation of local cuisine.
Culinary options are also ripe for exploration: There will be eight restaurants and lounges, ranging from an elite fine-dining enclave to a relaxed beach grill. Also planned will be indoor meeting space, a fitness center, a cinema lounge, a library, and a spa featuring private rejuvenation pools tucked in blossoming pockets of the rainforest. Travelers attuned to Viceroy’s unmistakable attention to style and hospitality can expect its signature programming and vibe, made possible through curated, authentic local partnerships.
Viceroy Bocas del Toro is the result of a partnership between VHG, West Resort and Hospitality Investors Group. Zurcher Arquitectos will oversee development and Wimberly Interiors will concept all aspects of interior design.
The sale of real estate and private residences will be managed by IMI and Venegas International Group. The destination is now offering 42 one and two-bedroom residences for sale to private owners for personal use or as investments that will become part of the resort’s rental program. Spanning across the water, they are remarkable examples of effortless luxury, featuring indoor/outdoor living space, contemporary interiors and epic views of the lagoon and beach.
