Property Description

General description:
Casa Bambù – yoga & sushi bar - is the first ecologic structure in Panama. Fully built of guada, a particular species of green bambù from Colombia. Casa Bambù was founded in 2013 and has continued to grow year after year. Since its founding, Casa Bambù has diversified to include a sushi bar and yoga school.
Our outdoor space is nestled in the Panamanian jungle. The main bungalow is a common space for our guests and a restaurant (sushi bar and Italian cuisine). The other 4 bungalows are common dormitory or private apartment. Yoga deck, outdoor shower, and hammocks are freely assessable by our guests. Palm trees and local flora decorate the spacious gardens of the 3,000 square meters of Casa Bambù.

Guadua: resistant, versatile, eco-sustainable, eco-sostenibile
Guadua is a species of neotropical bambu. It is characterized by green and gnarled stems. The height can reach up to 25 meters. It is an ideal building material thank to its large diameter (it can reach up to 25 centimetres in diameter) making it the preferred bambu for building. Guadua is an earthquake-proof material. Due to these attributes, it is sometimes referred to as “vegetable steel”. Unlike modern building material, bambu does not have an adverse effect on the ecosystem. An appropriately designed bambu structure does not require petrochemical or cementing materials, all of which translates into an environmental impact of 0.

Casa Bambù solutions:
Casa bambù offers its guest’s four different options depending on the customers needs:
•The Dormitory: Two dorms with single beds and bunk beds. Both have 6 beds each.
•Deluxe bungalow: Private bungalow provided with three beds (possibility of adding the fourth). Private bathroom and kitchen.
•Superior bungalow: Same as the Deluxe.
•Family bungalow: the casa bambù suite. Two floors of private space, three bedrooms and panoramic terrace.

For further information about our services, please consult the single voice in reservations menu, look at the photo gallery or call us if you have any doubts. Our Instagram profile is regularly updated with weekly offers and with the services proposed every day, from kitchen school to yoga lesson.

    Loved the design of this place!! Food was quite expensive on site but they have a kitchen for cooking & it’s so quiet and beautiful in the evening. The only real downside was it’s a LONG walk and a dark one once the sun sets to get back from the beach area. But if you’re not planning on spending too much time at the beach it’s a great place to stay.

    The Bamboo Lodge is certainly not a location to miss - not if you have the chance to stay there. The construction of the lodges, the desks, beds, chairs, etc. is all made out of a certain extraordinarily sturdy bamboo. The owner began building seven years ago and it is amazing what he has accomplished. The space can accommodate large and small groups, and it is only a short walk the beach, or to town, from the lodge.

    This place is beautiful, it's located in Santa Catalina but not exactly in the town but into the nature, it's very easy to get there with any car even when the road is not asphalt. The people working here are very friendly and easy going, you can enjoy the nature and have a great time just being there watching the sky. The breakfast was awesome and so tasty. I would love to come back again some day.

    Fabulous

    The manager Francisco is a great, friendly man! However, I'd note that there are no outdoor showers, no yoga decks (yet), and the sushi restaurant was only open 1 of the 5 nights that I stayed. We experienced a gas outage (no cooking), daily wifi+power outages, and were asked to change dorm rooms twice. Others were very loud, turning on lights and playing music in the dorms anytime between midnight and 4am w/ no quiet hours enforced. It's a jungle-surf adventure, not a sleepy bungalow retreat!

    Ilaria was really kind and helpful! :) Good vibes at the whole place. The lodge is a bit far from everything... it's a long walk if you want to go to the beach or to restaurants. But I loved that it's quiet and calm. Cleaning is something they should improve. Many times there was no toilet paper in the room. Also no lockers so security is not the best... I loved staying here, I would definitely come back! :)

    Very Good

    The manager was very helpful when we had to check in late. The hostel was cute and clean, but there are no fans for the upper bunks and it was quite hot without them. The location is a 15-minute walk from the main road

    Leaving a bad review as the hostel cancelled on us at 23:12 the day before we were due, I requested a refund and was told this would only happen if I came in person to collect it, which was not possible as their cancellation meant that we could not stay in Santa Catalina. I hate leaving bad reviews and am sure the hostel is usually great but this was a very unfair experience.
