Isla Palenque Resort is for the wayfarers, explorers, the seekers. The adventurous ones who still believe in wonder.

Located in the Gulf of Chiriquí, Panama, Isla Palenque is an undiscovered private island sanctuary. The island’s 160 hectares of lush jungle are framed by 7 untouched beaches, and house a number of wilderness trails and hidden spaces. Every inch is waiting to be explored by guests staying at the barefoot-luxury Beachfront Casitas (mid-2018) and Beachfront Villa Estate.

As guests check in to Isla Palenque, they open a door to a world of new experiences and undisturbed nature, enhanced by architecture and interior design that effortlessly blend into the tropical surroundings. The atmosphere of the hotel is a balance of sophisticated and private comfort, combined with peacefulness, relaxation, and playfulness. The service provided by the staff is so personalized, professional and detail-oriented that the Resort feels exclusive and at the same time familiar; guests feel free to explore and at the same time feel taken care of.
