Casa Chamaleon at Las Catalinas

Casa Chameleon at Las Catalinas is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. This adults-only resort features an ocean overlook so far-reaching you feel as if you can swim from the pool straight out to the sea. It's location combined with the steep angles of its design made Casa Chameleon an architectural challenge, but the resulting view was worth the trouble. Enjoy an ocean sunset during dinner or relax in the pristine water of Danta Beach. The resort is part of a beach development designed to be especially walkable and integrated with nature. Las Catalinas is just a few minutes away from Playa Flamingo, where Lazy Lizard catamarans set sail. We offer free shuttle service from las Catalinas to the marina and back.

The villas have offer luxury accommodations with a beachfront swimming pool and ocean view gym. Located adjacent to tropical forest, the area is perfect for a variety of activities from zip-lining to orchid hunting. The most popular activity among guests at The Palms is a trip out on the water for snorkeling, sunbathing, and sailing past the beautiful scenery of Flamingo Beach.
