Playa Venao Resort is a tranquil beach-side property set on a crescent of surf-friendly sands on the remote southern coast of Panama's Azuero peninsula. 

It’s the location of this peaceful beachside property which is really stunning – at the end of the resort area half-way along the crescent of toffee-coloured sand, it has a wild aspect but is also close to the beach’s amenities – right next door to the best regarded restaurant, El Sitio.

The guest rooms, provided with all modern amenities, occupy individual cottages dotted around the tree-shaded property and linked with the public buildings by a network of paths. The well groomed gardens are most attractive and the easy beach access is conveniently right next door to the al fresco bar.  One of the highlights is a large free-form infinity pool overlooking the ocean, while there's also a small gym and games room. The bar and restaurant are open daily serving local and international cuisine.

 The beach is perfect for surfing but isn't recommended for swimming: the lovely pool makes up for that, especially for families; there's a kid's pool and Jacuzzi too. Visits to nature reserves, hiking, biking, and water sports including snorkelling and canoeing can be arranged.
