    Description

    We currently have a team of 5 people working with us to get our resort guest ready. Besides myself and my spouse who have been actively involved in the process, we have two reservations specialists, a handyman and someone responsible for purchasing all equipment and furniture needed for the hotel. Some of the natives of the island have also helped with the building of the resort and educating us on the history of the island and it’s beautiful archaeological sites. On Saboga Island you will have access to 7 beaches, a jungle and archaeological sites to explore. On the resort itself you will have access to kayaks, paddle boards, yoga equipment and the hotel pool. This opportunity will allow you to meet people from all over the world, further enriching your cultural experience overall. Just a short boat ride away from Panama City you will be able to indulge in activities such as: shopping, frequent cafes & restaurants and visit the popular sites.
