The Isla Palenque, a luxury resort in Panama, will open this Valentine’s Day on 400-acre private island. The resort has a combination of rooms surrounded by nature and luxury camping sites for people who prefer glamping over traditional campsites. The Isla Palenque is dubbed an “low impact” resort, or an eco resort because steps have been taken to limit the impact on the environment, while providing guests with the opportunity to experience the trees, beaches, and trails in proximity of the resort. This luxury resort features handmade furniture constructed from hardwood and floor-to-ceiling windows. Fresh dishes made with organic ingredients, signature beverages, and island tours led by local guides are planned for the Panama-based luxury hotel.

Panama City, Panama offers a range of other luxury hotels from which to choose.
