Stylish and sophisticated, the Bristol Panama is the very definition of an urban luxury retreat. Its residential-style modern design, bespoke service, and elegant fine dining have all earned the legendary hotel its consistent title as the “Best Hotel in Panama” and among the “Top 10 Hotels in Latin America” by Condé Nast Traveler—a title it wears proudly alongside its exclusive Panama City Bella Vista address.
The refined grace of the Bristol Panama is a subtle nod to the vibrant art, architecture, and history of the capital city in which it resides. French infused neo-classical ironwork and red tile gables create the distinct air of an upscale private mansion, while charming colonial décor and custom artworks by some of Panama’s finest artists pay homage to its prestigious address. Each of the 125 classically appointed rooms and suites feature mahogany furnishings, Frette cotton sheets, plush duvets, and one-of-a-kind prints perfectly balanced with deep brown, rich russet, and tranquil cream color palettes. The hallmark of every stay, however, are the dramatic views over Panama City’s modern skyscrapers, as well as the exquisite wall-to-wall marble baths with deep soaking tubs, glass-enclosed showers, and luxury Molton Brown bath amenities. The Bristol’s condominium-style Executive Apartments are the most generous guestrooms in the city, featuring over 1,700 square feet of space and a fully-equipped kitchen with state of the art appliances.
Mornings at the Bristol Panama begin with a newspaper and coffee or tea service delivered straight to the room and continue downstairs with authentic Panamanian cuisine at one of the hotel’s many dining establishments. Salsipuedes Restaurant is where native ingredients transform into gourmet delicacies that are just as cheerful and spicy as the Panamanian people, while the exciting new Salsipuedes Bar serves up some of the most amazing hamburgers in town and the soothing Lounge 8°58′ boasts a don’t-miss assortment of rums, ceviche, and tapas.
The Bristol Panama strategically positions its guests at the center of Panama City’s central financial district, the epicenter of Panamanian culture, shopping, dining, and nightlife. Only a short walk away is the fashionable Balboa Avenue and within striking distance are some of the city’s most notable attractions, including the UNESCO-deemed Panama Canal and Casco Viejo historic center. After an action-packed day exploring one of Central America’s most beautiful and impressive cities, guests have the benefit of returning back to the Bristol Panama for a slice of relaxation within the hotel’s swimming pool and spa, a tranquil urban oasis offering booming city views and refreshing shiatsu facials, obsidian stone healing massages, and full body treatments to help each guest emerge replenished and renewed during their Panama City stay.Request Information
