The Panamera, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, will be the first property in the brand in Latin America when it opens next year in Panama City, Panama. The 130-room luxury hotel, slated to open in the second half of 2011, will be in the Calle Uruguay area of the city. Plans call for 118 luxury residences in addition to the hotel rooms, as well as a 1,200-square-foot fitness center, a 2,500-square-foot spa, an outdoor pool, 4,600 square feet of meeting space, and several food and beverage outlets.
