Island Plantation Resort

“Indulge in barefoot bliss” the moment you arrive to Island Plantation Resort, a boutique eco-retreat located on the three mile stretch of Bluff Beach on the main island of the Bocas del Toro archipelago.  This intimate piece of paradise offers endless opportunities for rest and relaxation, whether it be yoga at sunrise, midday drinks by the pool, late lunch at The Beach Club, or a candlelit dinner at Mora Mora.  Island Plantation Resort is the perfect boutique hotel for couples, families with older children, or a small group looking for quality service, comfortable amenities, exquisite dining, and attention to detail while visiting the Bocas del Toro main island, Isla Colon.

There are just eight guest rooms and one Two-Bedroom Suite available at Island Plantation Resort. All the rooms come with double pillow top mattresses, organic bath products, Wi-Fi and powerful fan (no A/C).  Three Superior Poolside Rooms are located directly off the pool deck and come with a king or two twin beds, private open air bathroom with rainforest shower, private back terrace, and front terrace.  The three 164-sq. ft. Luxury King Standard rooms come with king bed, spacious front and back terraces, and open air bathroom with rainforest shower.  There is one Luxury King Ocean View room featuring a large, furnished deck with beach views, direct pool deck access, and king bed.  For the ultimate eco-luxury experience, the 600 sq. ft., two floor Luxury Beachfront Suite sits directly in front of Bluff Beach.  This Suite features natural wood and stone elements with a thatched roof, stone rainforest shower, Balinese furnishings, and hardwood construction.  For families or small groups, the Two-Bedroom Suite located on the second-story of the main building features a king bed in the master bedroom and two twin beds in the second bedroom, one bathroom, outdoor living area, and expansive views of the property and beach.

Island Plantation Resort offers guests many ways to relax, indulge, and explore the jungle and sea that make up Bocas del Toro archipelago.  Wake up for sunrise yoga or meditation on the jungle platform and then hike to a nearby waterfall.  Return to Mora Mora for a delicious, fresh breakfast and then lounge by the oceanview pool with poolside service.  Stick your toes in the sand while sipping on tropical cocktails and snacking on light fair with beachside service from The Beach Club.  Sip on a glass of complimentary wine on the beach at sunset before heading back up to Mora Mora for a gourmet, candlelit dinner.  After dinner, head back down to the beach on a guided turtle tour in search of giant sea turtles nesting along the beach or the hatchlings make their journey out to sea.  Repeat it all again the next day or sign-up for one of many nearby tours, including ATVs, jungle horseback riding, snorkeling, scuba diving, or an organic chocolate farm tour.
