Waldorf Astoria Panama

Classic luxury in Panama City

Waldorf Astoria Panama is a classic luxury hotel in the heart of Panama City offering a prime location, divine dining and 130 well-appointed rooms and suites. The first Waldorf Astoria to grace Latin America, this 36-story gem is 15 minutes from Tocumen International Airport and just steps from Panama City’s bustling business district.

While convenience is important, it’s what on the inside that counts most for travelers visiting this ultra-chic Waldorf Astoria. From premium ocean-view suites and an exhilarating spa to four dining options, this property offers a rare, sweet escape of extreme relaxation amid the buzz of the city.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Entering the lobby, you’ll get an immediate sense of Zen from the sophisticated, modern interior. The clean and calming color palette is light and neutral with a bold touch of gold.
  • The lobby’s Peacock Alley Bar offers the opportunity to drop your bags and grab a refreshing cocktail or a bite to eat while getting acquainted with the charismatic space.
  • Waldorf Astoria Spa is a secluded spot on the seventh floor. Get treated to perks like heated massage tables and luxurious essential oils while partaking in decadent treatments like a body wrap that uses Panamanian chocolate.
  • The hotel’s terrace dazzles with a blue-lit pool perfect for watching the sun set over the gorgeous Panama City skyline. Enjoy light, delectable dishes and drinks at the Bungalow Terrace & Pool Bar.
  • Among the many dining options throughout the luxury hotel is Matiz, a casual eatery that delivers one of the city’s tastiest breakfasts as well as dinner.

Things to Know

  • Excluding November, any time of year is great to book your stay at this gem. November is discouraged because of several national holidays and vacationing locals. The rainfall is also heaviest during November.
  • The Panama hotel is in the city center, so traffic surrounding it may seem a bit chaotic. Skip the yellow taxis and opt for Uber, which has an option for English-speaking drivers, if preferred.
  • Take advantage of the hotel’s convenient proximity to the trendy Cinta Costera green space. Watch the sun go up over the water, stop by after dinner for a break in humidity or stroll along the peaceful pathway bordering the Bay of Panama any time.

The Rooms

  • The property’s rooms and suites feature upscale touches (pillow menus) and brand-specific perks (Waldorf Astoria Signature bedding).
  • The bathroom may prove your favorite part of the space, as it’s equipped with a glass-enclosed shower, round vessel sinks and Salvatore Ferragamo toiletries.
  • Luxury suites offer the option of ocean or city views — both are stunning. Space is ample (592 to nearly 1,100 square feet) with comfortable furniture fit for lounging and entertaining guests.
