When I think of the Waldorf Astoria, I think of cool marble, luxurious accommodations and personal concierge service.
The good news for luxury seekers is that a new Waldorf Astoria is opening in late March in the heart of Panama City, and the location couldn’t be better. The hotel is located just off of Balboa Avenue and Calle Uruguay, within walking distance to dozens of the city’s finest restaurants.
Touring the new five-star hotel is like walking through a luxurious dream. The open spaces, muted surroundings and attentive employees made me realize just how civilized Panama City has become.
The Panama City Waldorf Astoria boasts 130 elegant guest rooms, four restaurants and lounges, a world-class spa, a beauty salon, an outdoor pool, and a large fitness facility. There is even a meeting facility and social event venue that combines the cosmopolitan style of a Manhattan penthouse with the trendy swagger of a Latin American club, the perfect marriage of styles for Panama City.
For those who never want to leave, the Waldorf Astoria Panama also has 78 residence condominiums that boast stunning views of the Bay of Panama and showers large enough to fulfill your most indulgent dreams. If you would like to see of one of the new residences, email me here and setup a personal tour.
If you’ve been looking for a reason to visit Panama City, the Waldorf Astoria should push you over the edge with its down comforters and never-ending service. Plus, mention that you’re a friend of Inside Panama Real Estate and you’ll get preferential pricing. Yes, in Panama it’s all about who you know. As our friend, you can get a deluxe room starting at $189 per night. Now that’s luxury you can afford.
