Another new hotel is in development in Bocas del Toro off the Caribbean coast of Panama.

London-based Union Hanover Securities has launched its second hotel in the area, Mantra.

The property, which will join the recently-launched Sarani Resort, will include 48 suites.

Miami-based hotel operator Boutique Hospitality Management has been tapped to manage the property, which is slated to open in 2017.

“We continue to invest in the Panamanian market because we truly believe Bocas del Toro will become the world’s next leading destination for those seeking an exclusive island retreat that’s filled with adventure and excitement,” said Peter Debs, managing director at Union Hanover Securities.

Mantra and Sarani will share the same private island called Isla Pastor.

“Mantra will be the destination in the Caribbean for those looking for amazing once-in-a-lifetime experiences in a paradisiac surrounding, all while enjoying the comforts of modern hospitality,” said Keith Space, president and CEO of Boutique Hospitality Management.
