Perfect Match Filming Location: The Netflix Show Was Filmed in Playa Bonita in Panama City!
Netflix's Perfect Match is filmed in Panama, particularly in Panama City. Panama is a country in Central America and Panama City is its capital. The reality dating series was shot in an enormous luxurious and scenic villa called Panamanian Villa Pan003. This is the place where contestants fight to enter. And why wouldn't they? The secluded mansion is too grand and magnificent for people to not fall in love.
The estate, though it seems like a haven on its own from seeing the contestants perform challenges on the beach from time to time, Perfect Match is not technically on an island and is not a coastal property. It is situated at the edge of a rainforest in Playa Bonita, a resort town in Panama City, just about 20 minutes from the downtown area and 45 minutes away from Panama City's Tocumen International Airport. So, the filming location is still pretty close and has a great view of the ocean.
The design of the Perfect Match filming location that Latin Exclusive describes to be "perched at the edge of the rainforest on a small cliff above the Pacific Ocean on Playa Bonita" is reportedly inspired by the Panama Canal and has dramatic high ceilings to maintain a feeling of openness and freshness.
The interior, as per the listing, consists of the master suite that offers over 1500 square feet of indoor space, two terraces, and a private plunge pool. It also has a master bedroom that includes an indoor garden, which has been designed as a Temple of Water, with the main shower taking a starring role in the middle of the room. Perfect Match villa is very extra in the most gorgeous way. It was destined to be a filming location.
Besides that, each of the guest rooms has a unique architectural design that ranges from open-ceiling showers to bathtubs in the middle of the room to custom-made furniture. There are also other features such as a library, an elevator, and a barbecue/picnic area. There are six bedrooms and five bathrooms in total. It also has an infinity pool and a gym.
If you are in love with the villa from Perfect Match and I know you are, we all are, you can take a trip to that glorious made-to-be-a-filming location mansion for a whopping $7,300 per night.

While Shayne was filming the show [Perfect Match] in Feb 2022, he texted me numerous times he wanted to leave midway through filming because he still had feelings for me after we saw each other for [the] first time since our breakup at the reunion show taping. And yes, he was casting for the show while we were in a relationship in Nov 2021.
