Nayara Resorts has reached into Panama for its newest member, Nayara Bocas Bali.

Originally opened in 2021, Nayara Bocas Bali is an all-inclusive, adults-only property with sixteen over-water luxury villas on a private island in the Bocas del Toro area, off the Caribbean coast. Surrounded by approximately three miles of coral reefs, your clients will find themselves in heaven for snorkeling and other aquatic sports.

In a press statement, Dan Behm, the owner of Bocas Bali, shared how the partnership with Nayara came about: “We chose Nayara because of the ideal cultural fit and their proven ability to create extraordinary experiences for their guests.”

Leo Ghitis, the owner of Nayara Resorts, shared in a press statement that he was thrilled to welcome this new property into the portfolio as it is an excellent complement to the other hotels in the group. “Nayara Bocas Bali exemplifies what the Nayara brand is all about,” said Ghitis. “Ultra-personalized service combined with extraordinary experiences, and above all, an unwavering commitment to sustainability and our communities.”

Guests of the sixteen Bali-inspired luxury villas will be able to snorkel, paddleboard or kayak directly from their rooms. Some villas feature glass floor panels for underwater marine viewing while others have saltwater pools and steps that lead into the sea. New for fall 2022, Nayara Bocas Bali will add its first Treehouse with plans to add several more in late 2022 and 2023, some floating as high as 40 feet above the ground.

The resort is high-end and all-inclusive, meaning five-star dining, premium everything, high-speed WiFi, concierge and room service, and more.

One of the property’s most outstanding features is Kupu-Kupu Beach, the world’s first over-water beach, hovering on stilts and stretching 90 feet long by 20 feet wide. It features its own bar and a set of stairs that lead directly into the Caribbean Sea.

Tell your clients that getting to Nayara Bocas Bali is part of the adventure: After flying into Panama City’s Tocumen Airport, it is an hour drive to Albrook Airport, then about an hour-long flight to Bocas Airport where someone from Bocas Bali will greet them and bring them to the property by boat. (Roundtrip transfers from Bocas airport are included in the rate.)

From January 2023, Nayara Bocas Bali is launching VIP daily air service directly from Panama City’s Tocumen Airport to Bocas del Toro airport on a nine-seat King Air B200 (leaving Panama City at 4:30 daily and leaving Bocas del Toro at 9:30 am daily—a 45-minute flight). The price for this is $500 each way (per person).

Rates start at $900 per night for double occupancy.
