Brad Pitt and Angelie Jolie can keep St. Bart's, I'll take Cala Mia for its beauty, it's solitude (at capacity there are only twelve villas on the island), as well as its tropical jungle location. Amidst this tranquil serenity lurks a nearby jungle that within a five minute morning walk from my villa yields monkeys loudly engaging one another up...

My daughter and I spent four days there just enjoying all that Cala Mia has to offer, beach, pool, hiking, whale watching, boating and just general escape from the cacophony of the rest of the world. Everyone was nice, our needs were met, and we will be back.

Stayed with a group of 15 in August. Cala Mia met all my high expectations from the staff to the food to the magical ambiance created by the perfect layout of private accommodations amidst nature. My only critique which is so minor it almost doesn't merit mention was that the hot water in the shower was inconsistent.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This magical small boutique resort and island resort is located in Panama on the tip of a pristine island that runs into the Pacific Ocean, flanked by untouched tropical palm-lined beaches. At a 15-minute boat-ride from Boca Chica, bordering on the unspoiled, for-you-to-discover Panama's Marine Park "Archipielago de Chiriqui", Cala Mia is the perfect jumping-off point to world renowned sport fishing grounds: Coiba's Hannibal Bank or Islas Las Secas; Islas Los Ladrones for scuba diving and for surfing: Moro Negrito and Isla Afuera! Luxury hotel Cala Mia consists of 11 beautiful Bungalows, or suites, each with its own thatched roof rancho and all within 10 meters from the ocean or the beach/bay-side. Furniture, materials and woodwork are home designed and handcrafted by local artisans blending aesthetics, art, quality and functionality into a new standard!. ... more   less
