Panama’s top overwater resort has added another unique room style: treehouses.
The Nayara Bocas del Toro, set on a private island off the Caribbean coast of Panama, has debuted its newest rooms: a pair of towering 50-foot-tall treehouse units designed by Elora Hardy’s Bali-based Ibuku.
The solar-powered treehouse are built from four local varieties of bamboo, along with 19 varieties of reclaimed 500-year-old hardwood recovered from the floor of the Panama Canal.
They’re the first of five treehouses coming to the resort, all designed by Hardy. The one-bedroom units all have 21-foot ceilings, open-air living rooms and outdoor jungle showers.
Room service is delivered by a pulley system.
“At Bocas Nayara’s treehouse, we wind up among the tall stilts to a glass Moon Door that turns like a dancer on its center pivot,” Hardy said. “Bamboo and reclaimed hardwood underfoot give texture to our journey. Around us, screens curve playfully and poles soar overhead. Overlooking the mangroves, the view wraps around us and we feel like we are part of it. With a balance of elegance and texture, we are at once open to nature and sheltered within our own space. Here is the place where we can incubate unforgettable experiences.”
The treehouse rooms are joined by the property’s 16 overwater villas, and unique amenities like a 70-foot pool and what’s billed as the Caribbean’s first “overwater beach,” set on stilts.
“A recent guest marveled at our varied architectural designs throughout the resort,” says General Manager of Nayara Bocas del Toro, Scott Dinsmore. “Every design has our guest experience in mind and our new treehouse is no exception. Just imagine staying in an Elora Hardy treehouse and an over the water luxury villa with a private pool all in one vacation – perfection.”
