Punta Caracol Hotel, Bocas del Toro

The concept was to create an aqua-lodge that was part of a totally natural and unspoiled environment.

The reality is a dreamy collection of nine, private, thatched suites standing on stilts in the warm, topaz waters of the Caribbean. Reached by a wooden walkway, they stretch along a mile of crystal clear waters flowing over a living coral reef. And they represent a perfect balance of using local materials like native woods, clays, leaves, bamboo canes…and the latest 21st century eco-building technology.

The result is a tranquil haven, where you share the environment with dolphins, sloth, scarlet frogs, sea birds and multi-coloured fish.

  • Nabila has been outstanding. This was a surprise trip for my wife - who does all the holiday planning normally. Nabila listened to my requirements and held my hand every step of the way. Thank you.
