We recently visited Cala Mia at the spur of the moment. The island resort is low key and welcoming. You can relax by the pool or wander down to the secluded beach and lounge in one of the hammocks by the sea. There is also kayaking and a large list of other activities they will arrange if you so desire....

This hotel is awesome! Very peaceful and perfect place to really get away from it all. We enjoyed getting up to the sound of the ocean right out front of our casita and we loved the fact that we arrived via boat. The food was pricey but fantastic.

Cala Mia is perfect for those seeking a low-key and uncrowded resort experience. With only 7 or 8 bungalow suites and a somewhat remote location, you won't have to share this special place with mobs of noisy tourists. There is Wi-Fi but rooms have no TV to distract you from the natural surroundings. If you want to be active, you...

My wife and I stayed at the Cala Mia from February 6-9. When we first arrived, although the property was beautiful, I wondered how I was going to keep from going mad with little to do. But, I had books with me and over 700 pages of reading to do so I figured I was fine. Little did I know...

It's a wonderful place mixed with luxury and wilderness. The staff is super hospitable, generous with their sweetness and kindness. During the time we stayed, we would wake up at 5:30 to watch the sunrise while sipping our coffees. And in the evening we would sit by the bool with our chilled white wine watching the sunset. Every evening different...

If you are looking for a relaxed, quality experience in an unexplored area of great natural beauty, highly recommend Cala Mia. From the launch trip from David (totally worth it), to the warm reception and service, to the great excursions to nearby deserted islands with Caribbean like beaches, to the excellent food, Cala Mia affords a special, memorable experience.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This magical small boutique resort and island resort is located in Panama on the tip of a pristine island that runs into the Pacific Ocean, flanked by untouched tropical palm-lined beaches. At a 15-minute boat-ride from Boca Chica, bordering on the unspoiled, for-you-to-discover Panama's Marine Park "Archipielago de Chiriqui", Cala Mia is the perfect jumping-off point to world renowned sport fishing grounds: Coiba's Hannibal Bank or Islas Las Secas; Islas Los Ladrones for scuba diving and for surfing: Moro Negrito and Isla Afuera! Luxury hotel Cala Mia consists of 11 beautiful Bungalows, or suites, each with its own thatched roof rancho and all within 10 meters from the ocean or the beach/bay-side. Furniture, materials and woodwork are home designed and handcrafted by local artisans blending aesthetics, art, quality and functionality into a new standard!. ... more   less
