Kempinski re-enters Latin America

Kempinski Hotels announced its re-entry into Latin America with the signing of a management contract for a new luxury resort in Colón Province, Panama. The company now has an active pipeline in the Western Hemisphere, including projects in Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Rio de Janeiro.

The new property in Panama is under development by Two Oceans Group in a location on the coast of the Caribbean Sea, near the town of Portobelo on the Northern Isthmus of Panama. The beachside resort will feature 106 rooms and suites, all with ocean view. Furthermore, 75 Kempinski Residences are planned, from which 40 are directly located at the sea. The entire hotel complex will be built over several levels and connected by terraces.

The heart of the resort is a plaza, where restaurants, boutiques and entertainment will be available. A pool and a spa area, as well as watersport facilities will round up the offers.

The beachside resort is scheduled to open in late 2015.
