Hotel La Compañía Debuts In Panama

Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced the opening of Hotel La Compañía in Panama. It is the first hotel to open within The Unbound Collection by Hyatt portfolio in Central America. The hotel is located in the historic Casco Antiguo neighborhood, popular among visitors for dining, nightlife and cultural tours.

The opening of Hotel La Compañía marks the end of a seven-year restoration project. Originally built as a Jesuit convent in 1688, Hotel La Compañía is an "architectural masterpiece" centered around three periods in the hotel’s history—French Colonial, Spanish Colonial and Beaux-Arts. The hotel spans nearly one city block with four buildings, in addition to the ruins of a 300-year-old church that envelops a courtyard with gardens, al fresco dining, and event spaces.

The hotel’s 88 guestrooms are divided into three wings that pay homage to each of the cultural time periods that influence the property. The French Colonial wing was originally built as a Jesuit university in 1739; the Spanish Colonial wing has original calicanto (stone) walls, dark woods and wrought iron accents; and the American wing takes inspiration from the early 20th century with elegant wainscoting panels accentuated with a photo wall. All guestrooms have a balcony with views that overlook the hotel’s courtyard or the neighborhood of Casco Antiguo.

Hotel La Compañía’s signature dining options include 1739, a contemporary French restaurant, and a private dining room located in a 300-year-old wine cellar. Hari’s, a theatrical speakeasy experience adorned with mismatched and eclectic furniture inspired by the 1980s designer Harry Segal, offers shared plates and crafted cocktails. Capella, the rooftop lounge, and Exilio Bar in the lobby offer guests a curated cocktail menu and wine list. The hotel also features an all-day dining experience and a coffee bar.

Amenities include an intimate rooftop spa with four treatment rooms and a rooftop pool featuring panoramic views of the city and the Pacific Ocean. Guests can also participate in cultural tours and programming organized by the hotel’s concierge service.
