The individual Bungalows:
The resort offers 5 individual bungalows of 28 m2 each (301 sq. ft.), which are harmonically embedded in the tropical beach landscape. They are nicely and individually constructed and decorated in the traditional style. All rooms and bungalows have private bathroom and a terrace with spectacular view to the Caribbean Sea and their palm trees. The bathrooms are made in solid material while the rooms are made in a combination of wood and bamboo. The roofs are traditionally made with palm leafs above a bamboo and wooden structure. Most of the bungalows are built above a concrete platform, but one bungalow with the capacity of 4 people is done similar, has a wooden floor and the whole structure is fixed above 9 concrete pillars.
The Bungalow with 4 Rooms:
There is a building with 4 rooms on the ground floor and a large terrace on top. The building has a concrete platform of 11 x 11 meters (36×36 ft./ 1300 sq. ft.) Each room is equipped with beds for three persons and with private bathrooms. The bathrooms are made in solid material while the walls of the rooms and the roofs are done in the same manner as the individual bungalows. Above this building – reachable by an outdoor wooden step – you get to the terrace with views to all four sites – up to Capurgana and the Cape Tiburon and to Panama.
There is a separate bungalow with the kitchen of 39 qm2 (419 sq. ft.), containing the space of the cooking area, a private room for the cook, and a storage room.
The restaurant is a separate building of 65 qm2 (700 sq. ft.), which is located directly above the reef with a spectacular view to the Caribbean Sea and the little bay.
The private house
The owner’s house is designed in a spacious and wide loft style with two large terraces (total 140 qm2 / 1.507 sq. ft.). It’s the highest building of the hotel and measures 10 meters by 7 meters (33 x 23 ft.) and has two floors. It is made out of wood above a concrete fundament and opens a spectacular view from both terraces.
Beside the restaurant there is a garden place close to the shore where guests can relax in hammocks. Between the bungalows are green areas with palm trees and flower and all this is illuminated in the night.
2nd Private House
This property was bought recently to enlarge the capacity of this hotel and can be used for the stuff or private visitors. There are 2 rooms, a large terrace, kitchen and one bathroom. It is made out of wood above a concrete fundament and opens a spectacular view to the sea.
There is a good GSM mobile connection by Comcel, which provides mobile internet access as well. Direct TV is available via satellite.
Capurgana itself and the coastline is a border area which is highly controlled by local police and National Guard and since almost 10 years nothing serious happened. The local hotels and business don´t have security staff and there is no need to protect property by high walls or electric fences. As the climate is very comfortable some of our neighbors live in completely open houses without walls or any protection at all. In the nearby neighborhood are living for years people from Europe and the US.
The Colombian-Panamanian boarder is close by and there are good overseas connections from Panama City.
