Buffered from the great waves of the mighty Bluff Beach, the retreat center is nestled in its own garden masterpiece, home to Howler Monkeys, sloths and toucans. Only a lifetime of landscaping and propagating such a great array of fruiting trees, palms and colorful flowers could achieve such a result. Concrete paths light up at night and lead to each of the center’s buildings, virtually invisible one to the other, thanks to the lush foliage of the garden.
The Bluff Beach Retreat sits on one oceanfront hectare with 100 meters of beachfront, but the property’s borders extend far past the hotel site. Adjacent to the developed hectare there is a newly constructed driveway which connects the Bluff Beach Road to a 2 hectare hill behind the hotel. This back portion of land has already been extensively landscaped, and the ocean views from the hilltop are absolutely stunning. Comparable land in the area is being sold for 200$ per m2, which in comparison makes this opportunity a steal.
BLUFF BEACH RETREAT CENTER AND FAMILY VACATION PARADISE
Situated on Bocas del Toro’s most beautiful beach, this retreat center is ideal for large yoga groups or family vacations. Immaculately kept, the timber frame architecture offers both rustic charm and luxurious comfort.

The buildings were designed in the Colonial style of architecture that once dominated Isla Colon, honoring the style and cohesive experience that the local government is working hard to maintain. The flair of the buildings is introduced by natural materials like the buildings timber framing, log posts and beams, and live edge bars. While the exterior of the buildings blend beautifully with their surroundings, the interiors boast clean lines to define the separation from the great outdoors. The structures sit on concrete slab foundations, the ground levels are concrete block and the second stories are made of exotic hardwood framing and tongue and grove siding.
Built between 2006-2017, the Retreat Center has grown organically, and is now comprised of 5 buildings, all connected by lush garden paths. The Beach House is the heart and soul of the property with a 14 seat long table and the resort’s kitchen. The space is versatile and can be rented to a single family, but serves wonderfully as the retreat common space. With the pool in its front garden, it has 2 poolside rooms each with their own bathrooms, and 2 bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs where the kitchen and dining space are located.
La Playa Casita is a 2 story 3 bedroom/3 bathroom home. There is a large garden floor bedroom with 3 double beds and one bathroom, and covered patio. Upstairs is a covered veranda, a full kitchen and living room, and 2 mirrored bedrooms each with their own bathrooms. Behind the garden suite room are the rain water collection tanks, the solar system, a large wine celler/food storage, and a massive room for housekeeping materials and laundry.
The Yoga Studio is a large open air platform surrounded by the mature garden, and with glimpses of the sea. The platform is 7x10 meters and fits up to 20 yogis. Discreetly tucked beneath the studio is an apartment for the managerial staff.
The Massage Studio is a mini version of the Yoga studio, a haven of relaxation hidden in the garden. Open air as well, this space has canvas curtains for ultimate privacy, and a built in massage table.
La Pina Casita and the Las Palmas Casita are 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom cabanas with their own kitchens, living rooms and covered front porches.
OFF GRID SYSTEMS:
Recently Isla Colon was connected to the hydro electric power of mainland Bocas del Toro, this allowed many of the off grid neighborhoods to connect to the new system. Now that electricity is available to Bluff Beach, it will allow for exciting new possibilities for future development. The Bluff Beach Retreat however has no great urge to connect as the hotel boasts an extensive solar system with several battery banks, 100 solar panels and a 30KW Caterpillar generator as a backup.
175,000-liter rainwater catchment system of above ground tanks and a large concrete cistern serve the development. Each home has a UV filtered water system which allows guests to drink straight from the tap. For internet the hotel has recently installed Starlink high speed satellite internet.
