Cala Mia is a great location for a family vacation. The staff is extremely attentive and friendly. The accommodations are quite nice; each cabana having a lovely private patio with a beautiful view of the water. The perfect place for lounging with a good book. The island is easily accessible with amazing views on all sides. Make sure to come...

Having travelled most of Panama with our grown children and their significant others as part of my birthday, we decided to end at Cala Mia before heading home. With no expectations, we trusted the internet photos...and our travel agent booked us here for 3 nights. What a BONUS way to end one of the most beautifully memorable birthdays EVER! From...

We travel often, and without question this was the most relaxing vacation we've ever experienced. A beautiful location that feels as minimally untouched by humans as a resort can; there's a profound respect for local culture, the wildlife and the natural resources of the land. You can be as active or lazy as you choose. The staff will make sure...

I had the chance to spend some quality time at Cala Mia Resort during Mother's day break in Panama and not only the weather helped a lot but the friendliest staff who gave us the best attention, the best food. Definitely a must-go place if you want to relax and enjoy Nature.

The views, accommodations, pool and service are first class. There aren't many places on the water in Panama where you don't have to stay inside your room with the air conditioner on full blast. We so enjoyed listening to the ocean while being lulled to sleep. The lobster and coconut rice were delicious!

We just returned from 6 nights at Cala Mia. As others have said, the physical location and surroundings are beautiful. It is remote and unspoiled and incredibly peaceful and relaxing. The cabins are clean, in good repair, and very private. The gardens, pool, and restaurant are well maintained. What stands out about the experience there is the service. The owner...

An elegant, enjoyable, peaceful, and nature place. Fantastic food and service. The cabanas are very private and offer you a feeling of nature with their gorgeous typical bohio terrace attached to your cabanas, surrounded by nature and the peaceful sound of the ocean pounding on the rock surfaces. Not one mosquito bite yet you could hear and see the monkeys...

To start with, the surrounding is fabulous! Grab a Kayak and explore some desserted beaches or go for a hike to the highest point of the island to enjoy the view. If you're not into that kind of activities, just chill at the beach or enjoy the poolside. The staff was always ready to help and ever kind! The accommodation...

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.
