The Westin will be the first beach hotel from the brand in the area, which is a 20-minute drive from Panama City.
The hotel will have 611 guest rooms and suites, with either an ocean or tropical rainforest view, and Westin's signature Heavenly Bed and Heavenly Bath shower heads.
The hotel is clearly going for the business crowd, with tons of meeting and event spaces, seven restaurants and four bars.
Of all the food & beverage outlets planned, Soléo restaurant sounds like our kind of place: it will serve Mediterranean tapas and wine on the beach. For pool-drinking enthusiasts, there will also be a swim-up pool bar and a beach bar.
