Whatever I write here will fall short – my husband and I absolutely LOVED this place and can't recommend it enough. The owners and staff were super helpful, kind and friendly in such an authentic way. The food is amazing: fresh, creative and healthy. I have a sensitive stomach, and it just felt great to the body. The room (Casa Om) and the common areas are so beautifully crafted and decorated, with the utmost attention to detail. The yoga classes are the perfect way to start your day, leaving you with a feeling of pure bliss and calm, healing your body and soul. Cambutal is a hidden jewel, and well worth the long travel. Peaceful, secluded and with the most magical sunset I've seen. Don't think twice, this is the place to go!!!

Will never forget this magic place. 🌟✌️ As we both lived some time in Venao with kids, this was our getaway weekend. From the service to food or design and materials chosen for the cabins. Everything has a special touch.

The resort is very small in nowhere. It is over 6 hours drive from Panama City, which make no sense to visit unless you staying couple of days. The room I stayed was very nice, great balcony, beautiful view. The beach is quiet and with black sand and stones, it has its charm but it is not sand beach. Unless you are into yoga, or you really look to be by yourself it is not the place for adventures seekers! The breakfast is limited and juice or anything in addition , like in my case 2 slices of cedar cheese (for USD 2+ $6 for cucumber juice) is extra. No good coffee as the machine was not functioning. The staff were friendly, Despite the high price , and indeed good but expensive minibar selection, the management could not offer bottles of water in the room. When left, despite knowing that a long drive min 5 h, again no curtsey of offering bottle of water for the way.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review of your experience at Sansara. We always appreciate constructive feedback to help ensure that we can always be the best and provide the highest level of experiential travel for out clients. I’m sorry to hear that you did not feel like the black sand was actually sand. Cambutal mis known for habit one of the best black sand beaches in Central America so I’m sorry if this did not exceed your expectations. Also, we are sorry if we did not have a sufficient amount of adventure here for you. I will leave this to a personal preference, as we do feel that our location alone, being at the end of the road in Panama lends itself to amazing adventure not to mention the array of non touristy adventures we offer in house here, including but not limited to Hiking, horseback riding, waterfall tours, tide pool adventure, 4X4 excursions ect. But i will apologize in not meeting your expectations. We are sorry for not offering you a bottle of water for your drive, we would have kindly given you one for the drive if asked, but we have noted this and will ensure that guests will always be asked upon there departure for a long drive that water is given. We have chosen not to put plastic bottles of water in the room as we strive to preserve the environment, but we do have FREE water in glass bottles in all rooms for your enjoyment. Thanks again for the review. Items discussed will only make us better for the next clients

Hello, Sansara is a place that everyone should know about. I went on a weekend and: - I saw the best sunrise of my life - The best sunset of my life. -The best vegetarian food of my life. - Customer service is optimal. As soon as I started enjoying myself in that magical place I thought: The owners of Sansara built this place thinking about how they will like to be treated in a high-quality hotel and that´s why I felt every single day of that weekend like a movie star. I asked many things and I never heard a "no". The staff was always genuinely smiling and always willing to help. I recommend this place 100% and there is no way that vibrating high will have a bad time. Everything was perfect. I'll be back as many times as I can.

I knew about this resort since 2017 but I could not afford to stay there. With the reopening after the pandemic, they have wonderful rates and I stayed for 4 days and 3 nights. LOVE IT. Food amazing, the place is beautiful, people is extraordinary. One of the best places to stay in Panama. It is a must to visit.
