Playa Venao Hotel Resort is without doubt
the most luxurious place to stay on the beach at Playa Venao. The area’s largest infinity swimming pool, great ocean view restaurant seating, quality gym, immaculate lawn and grounds, large comfortable suites and impressive attentive service all contribute to a incredible stay for even the most demanding traveler.
We recently spent a few days at Playa Venao Hotel Resort in one of their junior suites. Though I have had family stay at the hotel on multiple visits, Pucha and I had never spent a night. We have stayed in various other hotels in the area over the years and I can firmly state that Playa Venao Hotel Resort is leaps and bounds above the others for comfort, attentiveness and location. Not to take away from the other lodging options around Playa Venao, but the Playa Venao Hotel Resort is on another elegant level.
After nearly a year out of the surf due to the birth of our new son, Pucha was ready to spend a few days ocean front to get as much surf time as possible. Though we spend a good amount of our time at the beach often it is difficult to keep our young boy comfortable while Mommy and Daddy trade off surf sessions in the water. Being able to have a air conditioned comfortable room ocean side for the baby to nap allowed both of us to catch plenty of waves.
Our time at the resort was a very needed few days for Pucha to re-find her rhythm and get her surf legs back. Though I can hold my own in the water, I do not make my living surfing competitively like Pucha. She is 10x Panamanian Women’s Champion and Bronze Medalist in the ISA Masters Division. These consecutive days in a row allowed Pucha and I to surf a few times a day and Pucha was able to train and exercise in-between surf sessions. This week of continual training and surfing will help her leap back into competitive form.
Pucha now has nearly three months training and working out since our little baby was born, she has nearly shed the pregnancy weight and is looking as gorgeous as ever.
While staying at the Playa Venao Hotel Resort, with the help of our friend Richy Arosemena, we created a short video of Pucha’s return and her 16 year old son Kalani enjoying some small Playa Venao summer time waves. Take a look at the video and photos of our trip to get to know the luxury ocean front resort and the new addition to our surfing family.
