If you are looking for some smaller, more intimate, B&B-style hotels throughout Panama, you have come to the right place. These cottages, rooms and bungalows highlight an enveloping atmosphere of intimacy, charm and one-of-a-kind touches. The limited number of rooms in these hotels and spas offer a comfortable stay while in Panama, and often have the benefit of a more personalized service, on-site owners and a cozy, friendly feeling that larger hotels and all inclusive resorts simply cannot offer. Read on for a few of our favorites: we love Panama boutique hotels.

You can find boutique hotels in all regions of Panama, from Panama’s capital to island escapes, offering an assortment of diverse options for all types of travelers. The valley escape and well-established expat region of Boquete by far embodies the very essence of boutique hotels, as each property highlights its favorite regional activity: coffee farms, horseback riding, lush gardens, colonial charm or fantastic opportunities to view local birds deep inside a national park. Enjoy a cozy hacienda that once served as a horse stable on a 16-acre coffee farm with stunning views of the neighborhood volcano. Relish a stay in Boquete´s dollhouse: a charming inn with colonial-style decoration and cozy fireplace that makes you feel as if you were in a New England Country Club. Tucked away in a mountain cloud forest a Swiss Chalet of cedar-walled suites and riverside massages: this is also the only eco-lodge in Panama with overnight accommodations deep inside a national park. Imagine the right fit for you in Boquete, and let us help guide you with many more options.

Of course sea-side there are many towns with plentiful options to find your niche. Casa Margarita is Pedasí’s finest boutique hotel, 5 bedrooms in a remodeled home that combine the look and feel of local comfort Spanish colonial flare. Talk fish with the on-site chef, help yourself to the honor bar and sink back in a handmade teak chair to enjoy the breeze in this inn’s lending library. In Bocas del Toro, take your pick in an Ocean or Island View Suite to enjoy crisp, open spaces, full Jacuzzi bathtub and private balcony at Tropical Suites. The indigenous adornments and wall-hangings add local flavor to a relaxed Caribbean vibe that permeates the hotel.

For extremely personalized service, boutique hotels in Panama City make for a hospitable introduction to this fast-moving capital. Enjoy the spa bath and tapas treats at Deville Hotel, located in the heart of Panama’s city center. In the Old Quarter, the classic charm of remodeled 1930’s apartment buildings with artistic decor make your stay chic, convenient and comfortable. Los Cuatro Tulipanes offers a hand-delivered breakfast basket and Las Clementinas babysitting and in-house spa treatments: you might not want to leave!

The buzzy ambiance, contemporary vibe, quirky touches and ultra-personal service all make boutique hotels stand out in their personalities, and for a very customized stay.
