PASSION AND LEGACY
We are a French adventurer family who fell in love with the dream of traveling and settling down into a place where we could have easy access to multiple ecosystems and Panama gave us that opportunity. From going surfing in the Pacific, to go diving in the Caribbean sea, enjoying islands with crystal clear waters and go climbing wooded mountains. All included in a twinkling of an eye.
Before moving to this paradise we built our home inside Southern’s France forest where we used to live with different kinds of animals, grew our crops to ate and developed our own sustainable techniques; since then, we have dedicated ourselves for years to preserve natural resources and the precious land that mother earth gave to our household this time in Central America.
A SAFE HAVEN
Life in captivity can never match life in the wild. Since 2010 our lodge provides shelter, care and nourishment to abandoned, abused and homeless monkeys in Panama.
It is our goal to ensure that each one of our monkeys is in the highest possible state of well being, physically, emotionally and psychologically. They live in a free habitat designed to promote normal behaviors and natural enrichment, where they enjoy the companionship of other monkeys, and receive loving and devoted attention from the care staff.
More than just an hotel room, a stay at Monkey lodge shares an immersive experience defined by tranquility, privacy, and nature contact. Our eco-lodge features two jungle view cabins, one monkey park view cottage and one outdoor pool view bungalow.
Each design-forward villa is equipped with a private terrace, perfect for spotting several species of birds, brightly colored toucans and hummingbirds as they flit through the tree-shrouded gardens. Old meets new on the inside of each room immersing you in a spectacular natural setting. All rooms are equipped with climate control, king-sized four-poster beds, a minifridge and bathrobes.
To honor our country of origin and the one that now welcomes us, the style of our cuisine is based on a fusion of traditional French flavors with a touch of Latin American food.
All the exclusive dishes that come out of our kitchen are handmade with fresh local ingredients and prepared at the moment by our incredible chef and the property’s owner, Madame Sabrina.
