At Saboga Lodge, we believe the concept of “local” is the key to sustainable hospitality. That’s why we hire local and buy local, and invest in our community and natural surroundings.
Meet our Panamanian Team
At Saboga Lodge, our staff is almost exclusively Panamanian, with a great many coming from Isla Saboga and Contadora. Hiring locally is the cornerstone to our commitment to the community.
Our salaries are higher than the national average, and we employ our staff year-round, never laying them off in low season as is the case with many hotels. We actively seek to create opportunities for professional and personal growth for them, running cross-training courses and promoting internally whenever possible.
Immerse yourself in everything Panama
At Saboga Lodge, we make a conscious effort to source as many products as we can from as close to home as possible.
The fish we serve is caught by the fishermen of nearby, and much of our food comes from organic farm or from just around the corner. Our minibars are stocked with only local drinks and snacks, and our organic, flavorsome coffee comes from Panama. On the island, guests can enjoy 100% organic bathroom amenities too, and our resort furniture are ecologically proved.
Sharing our ideas with our neighbors
Refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle – four rules to live by! These four Rs are the pillars of solid waste management at Saboga Lodge.
We refuse certain items that could turn into trash like single-use plastic water bottles and straws. We reduce waste wherever possible, and whatever can be recycled or reused – like leftovers for compost – certainly always is. We are working with the local Saboga community to share these philosophies and initiate the area’s first recycling system
