In a Nutshell
Being tucked in between lush jungle and an ever changing mostly deserted beach, the raw tropical rainforest with all its captivating sounds and creatures feel incredibly close, only separated by mosquito-net covered veneers while you sleep. This is a place to commune with nature, be mesmerized by huge friendly insects, and listen to the sounds of the howler monkeys, the ocean break, and the well-crafted music playlists. The romantic, Bali-style eco-resort is rustically hip, a combination of informal and barefoot with touches of luxury. Comfortable and tastefully appointed guest rooms feature organic bathroom products, natural air ventilation, and open-air showers. Your culinary experience includes a fine dining restaurant, the beach club that serves tropical cocktails and lunch and the Pizzeria where you can taste delicious gourmet, wood-fired pizzas. A fully tiled pool sits among manicured gardens specked with oriental statues while a stunning hilltop yoga platform that doubles as massage area is nestled in the heart of the rainforest overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

Insider comment: The property runs on its own sophisticated solar power (off the grid) system, hence, there is no air conditioning. Mostly recommended for couples, Island Plantation is not suitable for children under 16. The hotel is situated in a secluded part of Bocas Island, only accessible by a dirt road.
