Pearl Islands get Floating Boutique Hotel
November marks the date for the addition of a new boutique hotel to Panama’s impressive portfolio of resorts, hotels and accommodations. The hotel takes the form of a cruise ship, built in Germany and named The Sea Voyager.
The Sea Voyager, which will cruise around the Peal Islands Archipelago will offer the benefits of private yacht-like facilities and ambience, with a maximum guest capacity of 64 guests, accommodated in 33 rooms on the three deck liner.
The cruises are centered around the eco tourism aspect and potential of the region and were designed by world renowned Swiss hotelier Andre Niederhauser, who also serves as promoter to the Cuna di Vida vacation property and group. Itineraries aboard the luxury ship include swimming and horseback riding onshore by day and by night luxurious gourmet dining on board the ship. The crew of the vessel originate from the Lindblad fleet, which according to Niehauser offer superior service and standards, and hence the retention of the closely knit team on board the Sea Voyager. Cruises onboard the pioneering eco tourist destinations are available in three, four and seven day itineraries, with special launch promotions available until December 2009.
