Sophisticated, modern, and warm, the hotel’s interior design balances the history and culture of the destination with beautifully crafted furniture and decor, including a library filled with carefully curated books on Panama’s local culture. The exquisite décor, all accented by handmade artifacts from Reprosa’s Treasure of Panama, the leading company in the preservation of the country’s history and cultural traditions, is reflected throughout the property, highlighting the destination’s enriching heritage.
Upon arrival, guests of The Santa Maria are whisked into a lush urban oasis surrounded by extraordinary views of the only Championship Nicklaus Design 18 holes, 72-par golf course in Panama City.
