This sustainable resort on Panama’s Pacific Coast is the ultimate private island getaway
Islas Secas is an archipelago of effortlessly beautiful islands in the Gulf of Chiriquí on the Pacific coast of Panama. An inspired eco-destination befitting the most intrepid traveller, the resort combines the wonders of Panama’s incredible natural land and seascape with genuinely sustainable hospitality and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for adventure.
Set off-the-grid 33 nautical miles from the town of Punta Tierra, Chorcha, Islas Secas is home to four individually designed Casita sites sleeping up to 18 guests on one of the islands, with each built to feel like its own private sanctuary. Each Casita is embraced by the island’s lush tropical forest, offering awe-inspiring ocean views and comes complete with its own sprawling outdoor deck, plunge pool and thatched-roof cabana.
Islas Secas is an idyllic base from which to undertake thrilling marine safaris and immersive natural experiences: snorkelling and diving amid the aquatic wonders of the Gulf of Chiriquí; exploring the biodiversity of Coiba National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; swimming and paddleboarding the archipelago’s fish-storied waters; or witnessing the beauty of a migrating humpback whale. Islas Secas’ dedicated Adventure Concierge is an expert on the varied possibilities and connects the resort’s discerning guests with nature in its purest form.
With strong eco-reserve credentials, Islas Secas is powered by and in harmony with its surrounding environment. Incredibly, 100% of the property’s energy is solar-generated; 100% of food waste is recycled; 100% of wastewater is reused for irrigation; and 75% of the archipelago has been left untouched and undeveloped by the human hand. A sincere commitment to sustainability is at the core of Islas Secas’ ethos, infrastructure, operation and heritage every day.
Islas Secas will open as a full-service island resort in December 2019.
