Overview

Sweet Bocas is a majestic 20,000 square foot, three-story, nine-bedroom full-service luxury villa constructed entirely out of Panamanian teak, built atop over 100 cement stilts and connected to a six hectare (15 acres) island/property by a 130-meter dock.

There are two “glamping – sleeping under the stars” bamboo structures located around the private fresh water lake with the same luxury as the bedrooms in the villa.

All bedrooms have a king size bed with 100% handcrafted linen sheets, silk blankets as well as cushions. Each room also offers a day bed. All rooms have air conditioning and also have outdoor lounging areas. All bedrooms have their own en-suite bathrooms, offering organic and handcrafted body products.

The kitchen features a premium Lacanche range cooker and a luxury espresso bar as well as an impressive selection of vintages from around the world. Personalize your experience of paradise by handpicking produce prepared by the in-house world-class chef. All produce is local, natural, and organic; most ingredients are harvested on the property and/or our mother far, and their selection is seasonal.

Lounging areas offer a range of approximately 40 board games available for your entertainment as well as over 1,000 movies and TV series, a library of approximately 250 books from novels to cookbooks, and 5,000 songs built into the state of the art Bang & Olufsen audio system. There is also high-speed wireless internet on the entire island.

Permaculture

Sweet Bocas is a self-sustaining natural ecosystem, know as a permaculture, where sustainability is not just a buzz-word. The commitment to the guest is matched only by the commitment to the natural environment that envelopes every aspect of their stay, from the crystaline water, to the handcrafted teak house, from the farm's hand picked produce, to the pure rainwater that fills their glass.
