An enclave of Portobelo Bay, north of Panama City.
Rooms at El Otro Lado
Four quaint bungalows sit nestled within the trees, each unique in style. Each of these luxurious villas follows its own design scheme, some styled to resemble Caribbean shacks, others carefully positioned to catch a whole days worth of sunlight. Thoughtfully styled inside, they showcase Caribbean artifacts, local artwork and Indian fabrics.
Food and facilities
The centrepiece of the retreat is the Gazebo: a tropical shack that holds a bar, restaurant and lounge under its roof. Here you can marvel at its stylish design, incorporating unusual artifacts from many corners of the globe. Don’t miss the acclaimed passion fruit Mojitos and the tasty Caribbean fusion cuisine served in the restaurant.
Activities at El Otro Lado
Lounge around the infinity pool, admire the view of Portobelo from your balcony, or put your feet up in the gazebo. When you tire of indulging, take a kayak or riverboat out to the water, explore the virgin beaches – accessible by boat only, or discover the rich cultural history of Portobelo.
