KemperSports to Manage Panama's Vista Mar Golf & Beach Resort
KemperSports has been selected by Grupo Shahani to manage the company's golf course and beach club at Vista Mar Golf & Beach Resort in San Carlos, Panama. In addition to overseeing these amenities, KemperSports will assist with the development of a clubhouse as well as a planned spa and fitness center.
Developed by Grupo Shahani, one of the largest construction and real estate development companies in Panama, Vista Mar Golf & Beach Resort is a beach and residential community approximately an hour from Panama City. Situated on more than 700 acres along Panama's Pacific coast, the resort's central feature is an 18-hole, par-72 course designed by J. Michael Poellot.
The course, which features expansive Paspalum fairways, strategically placed bunkers, undulating putting greens and multiple tees, offers an ocean view from every hole as well as vistas of the mountains to the north.
"KemperSports has proven expertise in managing and developing resort properties similar to Vista Mar," said Rolando Shahani, co-owner of Grupo Shahani. "We are eager to leverage this expertise to achieve our vision of welcoming guests from around the world to Panama."
Vista Mar offers various amenities and activities for members and guests, including a private beach club with an infinity pool overlooking the ocean, tennis courts, a meditation garden and an oceanfront restaurant called Terrazas Del Mar. The resort also has two helicopter landing pads.
"Vista Mar Golf & Beach Resort has great potential to be a very special resort," said Steve Skinner, chief executive officer of KemperSports. "Panama is one of the fastest growing countries in Latin America, and we look forward to working with Grupo Shahani to elevate the guest and member experience."
Residential units at Vista Mar Golf & Beach Resort range from apartments and luxury condos to two-story townhouses and beachfront homes. The oceanfront homes occupy sculpted, terraced steps so that each has an unobstructed view of the ocean.
