Isla Simca, Private Island, Panama Vacation Rental
Isla Simca is a luxury private island rental in Panama that offers seclusion like no other. Your own private island and, a short kayak ride away, 10,000 additional private acres on Panama’s Pacific coast. Distant from all civilization, surrounded by empty seas and an archipelago that feels truly primordial. Luxurious services and accommodations for up to 22 guests in a dramatically contemporary residence, combined with recreational adventures in a nature that is pure and wild.
Situated at the island’s summit 1,000 feet above the sea, is the main pavilion and two guest bedroom buildings. The South Wing has 6 bedrooms and the Olgas Wing has 5 bedrooms. In total, 22 guests can be accommodated comfortably. The decor is sunny pastels and brilliant artwork. Sliding glass doors lead to large balconies facing the sea. Bathrooms are beautifully equipped and unusually spacious, with the same island views.
After owner Jean Pigozzi selected this island for his dream house on the sea, he saw to its total privacy by acquiring 10,000 acres of untouched coastline just across the narrow channel. All of this is a playground, now, for Isla Simca's guests: empty seas and mangroves for kayaking, world-class fishing, SCUBA diving and jet skiing, 40 miles of mountain tracks for ATV riding and horseback riding, long trails for guided jungle walks.
With nature screaming for your attention, it may feel unnatural to “sit back” at Isla Simca. But for those so inclined, there are ample options – two swimming pools with their cabanas and wide decks, the observatory at the house’s peak, and dozens of beaches. Inside the main pavilion, surrounded by the owner’s celebrated collection of contemporary African art, oversized lounging beds and reading nooks beckon to be occupied.
Tired of the more active adventures? Lay back on one of the many pristine beaches, swim in one of Simca’s two oversized pools (you choose between saltwater and fresh), take a lazy ride on our train, or select one of the 3,000+ movie titles available in our stunning, state-of-the-art cinema.
The only downside in Isla Simca’s dining experience is that the food, gourmet as it is, has to fight with the views for attention. Whether you are having early morning breakfast on your balcony, a picnic by a jungle waterfall, or dinner on the terrace at the island’s summit, nature may well be the main draw. The resort’s world-class chef is at your service nonetheless, and your menus will reflect your detailed information on your group’s preferences, as well as any of your individual guests’ special needs.
Probably no other island vacation retreat as close to both New York and Los Angeles feels so far away or has such remarkable wildlife. There are rare bird species, howler monkeys, friendly large iguanas and white-tailed deer. Whether you are enjoying the miles of trails on your all-terrain vehicle, taking an early morning guided jungle walk, or kayaking into the dense mangroves, you are bound to be treated to sightings of rare wildlife.
