Grace Hotels has announced the official opening of its hotel in Panama City, Grace Panama.
Occupying the ground floor and six upper floors of the new, yet already iconic, ‘Twist Tower’ in the Obarrio District, Grace Panama is a contemporary urban boutique hotel which promises a stylish new addition to the city’s hotel landscape.
Its 60 rooms and suites are spread throughout the 13th to 17th floors, affording sweeping views of the city’s dramatic skyline through floor to ceiling windows, which can also be enjoyed from the hotel’s lap pool perched on the twelfth floor.
As with all Grace hotels, each room incorporates the highest quality, contemporary fittings conveying elegance and simplicity.
The hotel, which expects to attract discerning business and leisure travellers, offers two distinct dining options.
‘54 East’ is a modern, elegant brasserie serving Mediterranean cuisine created using local ingredients.
It is set to become a vibrant, destination restaurant for hotel residents, visitors and city dwellers alike who are seeking a contemporary ambience with world class food from executive chef Pedro Masoliver.
Its adjoining bar offers a wide selection of expertly crafted cocktails and international beers in a laid-back setting.
Meanwhile, ‘Meet@12’ is a gourmet café and delicatessen with glorious views from its position on the twelfth floor, providing a light menu of salads and snacks to take away or to enjoy on the extensive terrace alongside the hotel’s pool.
Marco Novella, chief operating, Grace Hotels, said: “We are proud to open the doors of our seventh Grace hotel in this thriving, dynamic city full of promise and look forward to introducing the Grace philosophy to a new audience.”
Grace Hotels’ expansion to Central America comes at a time of exciting growth for Panama City as it moves further towards completing the widening of the Panama Canal, which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year.
