Spectacular new overwater villas are coming to Panama with the forthcoming opening of a Viceroy Hotel Group scheme in Bocas del Toro, our latest Project of the Week.

Set above Caribbean waters on the edge of the rainforest, this development, which incorporates a stylish resort and luxury residences for sale, will immerse guests in their surroundings when it opens in early 2022.

Drawing on Panama’s beautiful surroundings

Together with West Resort and Hospitality Investors Group, Viceroy Hotel Group is creating a one-of-a-kind scheme that makes the most of its natural setting on 457 acres of coastline. Zurcher Arquitectos is overseeing the development and Wimberly Interiors is behind the interior design.

Altogether, the Viceroy Bocas del Toro Panama is promising to deliver 186 guestrooms including 42 overwater villas, with three miles of private white-sand beach and abundant opportunities for outdoor pursuits such as sailing, hiking and surfing. Arguably the greatest draw, the villas, will boast private plunge pools, decks with direct ocean access and uninterrupted views of the Caribbean.

This accommodation will be joined by eight restaurants and lounges, from a fine-dining venue to a beach grill, as well as a library, cinema lounge, fitness centre and meeting space. Meanwhile, the spa will be home to private rejuvenation pools tucked into pockets of the rainforest.

Offering guests a choice of activities

The resort experience will be defined by signature programming curated through local partnerships. Adventurous activities that promise to immerse guests in their natural surroundings range from rainforest zip-lining and sailing to snorkelling and deep-sea fishing.

Significantly, Viceroy Bocas del Toro Panama will be an eco-friendly destination. Its outdoor design incorporates indigenous plants, and only sustainable technologies and electric cars will be allowed.

Giving the scheme an added sense of exclusivity, the site will only be accessible by boat, seaplane or helicopter.
