Catching the sunrise from a Lucero treehouse

The winter of 2017 marked record snowfalls in Kelowna that began almost as soon as November did. By late December, SAD (Seasonal Affect Disorder) had officially set in. My husband and I began to plan our escape.

A month later, we found ourselves driving along a winding road in the Boquete Highlands of Panama. The open windows let in the fresh mountain breeze, the sun was shining and we were soaking it up. Winter at home was a distant memory. Continue reading

Coming soon…Panama’s most luxurious new clubhouse. (Golf and spa lovers, take note!)

Soon to join our stunning championship 18-hole course? A brand new, very luxe clubhouse with all the perks you can imagine, such as:

CLUB HOUSE

• A stunning infinity pool surrounded by private cabanas where you can relax and read in the sun or soothe golf-weary muscles in the hot tub. Set in lush gardens, flowers tumble around the pergolas and scent the fresh mountain air.

• An outdoor poolside dining deck, as well as ample and elegant indoor space. The clubhouse’s breezy restaurant is the perfect spot to meet for a drink, an intimate dinner – or to entertain that seemingly endless parade of out-of-town guests.

Grab an après-game cocktail, take a refreshing dip in the pool or simply lounge in the shade and enjoy the spectacular views of the Caldera basin and Volcan Baru, as well as the lush green of the first tee on our custom designed world-class, par-72 course created by renowned designer J. Michael Poellot.

We’ll see you summer 2016!

Top 5 Reasons To Go Glamping In A Luxury Treehouse

1. Leave your worries behind (or below) you
40 meters above the ground you’ll experience complete tranquility and freedom, the only noise is from rustling leaves, tropical birds and the sound of a stream far below.

2. Rediscover child-like wonder – in very adult luxury
Except this time your house in the sky is more than a few boards nailed to a tree: it’s totally luxurious with the comfiest beds and linens, a walk-in rain shower, and a cozy sitting room with kitchen.

3. Get a true bird’s eye view on the world 
Watch tropical birds like quetzals and toucans come home to roost while you drink a cold, fresh pina colada overlooking the Caldera valley and out towards the Pacific ocean.

4. Enjoy an authentic, unforgettable experience 
Handcrafted from local Panamanian wood, this is the opposite of a McResort. There are only 1 or 2 of its kind in the world, and it could be all yours.

5. Did we mention the view?
An expansive wraparound deck offers panoramic views stretching out from every angle. There’s even a cozy reading nook with a giant picture window made for daydreaming while you gaze out at the valley below. Astounding maybe starts to describe it.

Stay & Play, (oh and relax too)

We teamed up with The Haven Hotel & Spa to give you the best of both worlds – golf and pampering. Spend a wonderful day playing on Lucero’s spectacular and challenging golf course beneath Panama’s highest mountain, Volcan Baru.

Then retreat to Haven’s spa and soothe sore muscles with a massage and soak in the whirlpool.

Haven Pool

Head to the lounge for a sundowner or read and relax in your room overlooking Haven’s manicured gardens and your personal fountain. There’s just one catch, you’ll have to wake up and do it all again the next day.
