Selling a unique and successful small eco-lodge and farm on 23 hectares of splendid jungle on an island in the Bocas del Toro region of Panama. The lodge currently provides a more than adequate income and a sedate lifestyle for the owners, and has potential for expansion and significantly increased income potential for any new owners looking to be aggressive in the marketplace.
The lodge has 4 very unique guest cabins, carefully blended into the surrounding jungle nature, with room for up to 16 guests, with adequate space to construct more such cabins into this large property. The property also has a house for the owners, a central Lodge with restaurant facilities and 4 accommodation cabins for workers and volunteers. Cacao trees, creeks and walking trails complete this tranquil and natural paradise
This resort is extremely highly rated on the main booking engines, has received many excellent reviews in travel magazines and has a faithful following with many repeat customers, and is so popular that booking requests for the peak season invariably exceed capacity.
The luxurious cabins, homegrown organic food offerings, nearby beaches, jungle walks, kayaking, snorkeling, diving, visits to bat-caves and local communities as well as tours of the chocolate farm and production techniques occupy the visitors when they are not busy relaxing and keep them returning time and again. Booking engine customer ratings are consistently in the 9.5-10.0 range.
The present owners of 15 years have opted to open the lodge for just 4 days per week, allowing them to enjoy the tranquility of the location for themselves and to relax for the remaining 3 days of the week. Even with this reduced schedule the owners can earn a comfortable income as well as unwind. Any new owner could of course ramp up the operations, increase the capacity of the lodge and its earnings if they so wished.
Remote enough to be off-grid, with power supplied by solar panels (with back-up generators), the location remains close to civilization with all main facilities (shops, medical, schools, etc.) just a 15 minutes boat ride away. Wireless communication and internet ensures a connectivity to civilization.
The current owners are reluctantly leaving for family reasons but are leaving a business complete with all the legal and financial requirements, equipment (including boats, kayacks, etc.) and with a loyal clientele established. The property is developed and maintained, and the laid-back lifestyle has been defined. So, all that is required to complete this idyllic picture are new occupants who wish to enjoy this simple and naturally harmonious lifestyle.
