EL OTRO LADO PRIVATE RETREAT
About the Villa
El Otro Lado is a private retreat, situated in a privileged refuge of Portobelo Bay, integrating design, culture nature and luxury in a unique manner to provide guests with authentic experiences that are selected and customized.
Located just over an hour from Panama City, and next to the Portobelo National Park, El Otro Lado is the perfect venue to relax and disconnect while pondering the lush and youthful verdure.
With views of the sea, the five eclectic design houses integrate simple details with handcrafted traditions of Panama ́s Atlantic coast.
The Casa Grande of El Otro Lado is a good example of private-residence hotel achieved with a mix of contemporary design and local influences. The elegant geometry of the building, with its ample terraces facing the rooms, are an ideal setting that highlights the extraordinary view of the bay of Portobelo.
With nearly 800 m2, the residence is arranged over two floors. Ground floor: includes a centrally air-conditioned living room, which may be easily prepared for private or business meetings, plus a bar and outdoor dining. The three suites, which are located on the second floor, each has its own identity and unique elements, surrounded by spacious terraces with exceptional views of the jungle and the bay.
The initial idea of this construction endeavored to respect the privacy of the guests, so that despite the ample areas of space, the designers have incorporated nooks that add both warmth and privacy. Making it a unique and perfect place to unwind in relaxing and beautiful surroundings.
