The town’s square will be on your right, and a Lime Green Building called Electronic Café, in front of you.

    "Sansara is unlike anything I have experienced. Panama offers a lot of beautiful surroundings and amazing activities but there is nothing like the journey that Sansara offers. From the smallest details of the furnishings and facilities to the genuine kindness of the staff, amazing amenities and spectacular activities, Sansara completely satisfies every last vacation desire"

    "The day I arrived I was so overwhelmed by the sheer beauty of this resort (and my room la marae) that it actually left me a bit unsettled. It just was so much more than I expected. Staff and other guests were all kind and welcoming so as a solo traveler i felt at home very quickly"

    "This is truly one of the most special and extraordinary places I have ever visited. The setting is tranquil while also being incredibly luxurious. We even coined a new term - Luxury Zen! The owners and staff are so welcoming and familiar, I never once felt like a guest. It felt like staying with friends or family, friends or family that own a really nice place! Every single detail of this resort has been thought out, from the decor of the yoga Shala, to the light fixtures in the dining area, to the openness and comfort of the lounge, it is obvious that Mike and Janel went to great lengths to create an ideal space."

    "Can’t say enough good things about Sansara. The service is terrific and warm - Mike and Janel create a wonderful vibe but the rest of the staff only add to this. The food is fantastic...if you want a lot of meat not for you, but if you want healthy food with really tasty fresh fish its as good as it gets. The rooms look like the pictures and were very modern (totally above my expectations...). The yoga will depend on what instructor is there when you're going but the yoga room is really unique and perfect to practice in."

    "Sansara is a slice of paradise. For one, the grounds are laid out exquisitely; every turn leads to beauty. The architecture blends with the natural environment; there are many plants, and wonderful viewpoints to the sea. Our room was very clean and well-air-conditioned, with a stone bathroom that made me feel like a queen every time I took a shower. Yoga is offered in the mornings, and perhaps later in the day"
